Courtesy: Honeywell Process SolutionsHoneywell  Process Solutions' Experion Orion Console is an advanced display technology is designed to help plant operators solve process issues while working on a platform that allows them to stay mobile. 

The Experion Orion Console features an improved ergonomic design and better displays to simplify control system management, reduce operator fatigue and improve situational awareness.

Other features include a large flexible, high-definition display that provides clear status assessments of process operations in a single glance for better and more-informed management. This flexibility also enables operators to customize displays for context-specific process issues, and incorporates advanced alarm management and pan and zoom capabilities. Limits and targets are directly integrated into overview displays, allowing operation of the process closer to the optimum and allowing operators an increased scope of responsibility across the industrial facility.

Touch panel displays provide the primary operating interface that better enables operators to quickly and accurately respond to changing conditions and prevent situations that could lead to plant incidents and emergencies.

Aside from the actual information, however, the console has a mobile tablet that also reduces operator fatigue by allowing personnel to move about the control room more freely. When paired with wireless-enabled mobile technologies, the system also allows operators to view the same displays on hand-held devices in other areas of the plant.

The company announced the new product during the Honeywell Users Group meeting, June 3.
