Experion PKS R300 includes a redesign of Honeywell's automation-and-control platform hardware and new, embedded cyber-security technology.

The company says the product unifies assets, process, and people to improve business agility. This proven, open, yet secure technology is built to scale, and helps manage everything from optimized yield to reduced maintenance costs. Featuring an automated backup-and-restore capability, the system can automate complex procedures to improve user efficiency. It also introduces the Series-C, optionally redundant-process input-output (I/O device) family, which uses a new vertical design that reduces wiring and maintenance costs. The company says that representative results include: 30% reduction in maintenance costs; 1-3% increase in production and 1-2% decrease in costs due to asset effectiveness; 1-4% boost to production due to process optimization; up to 13% increase in production volume; 5% decrease in production costs across the entire solution; 40% reduction in operator-related incidents; 98% on-time and on-budget project completion; and up to 50% better return-on-investment over the facility lifecycle.

Vertical-packing concept extends to the controller and Fieldbus Interface Module, giving a smaller, higher-performance package.
