Batch management platform can boost efficiency, throughput

Honeywell launches Experion Batch Manager R410 with improved controller capabilities, reduced latency, and reduced execution times.


Honeywell has announced the launch of its Experion Batch Manager R410 solution, a comprehensive enhancement to the Experion platform designed to improve batch process throughput and efficiency, and to reduce waste. The company says its new platform pushes batch control closer to the process by directly embedding it within the controller, reducing complexity, and improving availability and overall system performance. The improvements increase throughput by reducing batch execution times through reductions in system latency by up to 80%, and allowing the system to execute a complete procedure within a redundant controller. Applicable to any process sequence, Experion Batch Manager not only functions 3-5% faster, but is more reliable and easier to maintain than typical server-based solutions.

Key new capabilities of the R410 solution include native batch summary displays that are embedded directly into the system, which improve operability and reduce engineering effort. Improvements also include class-based master recipes, which reduce the total number of recipes that must be created and maintained. Experion Batch Manager covers all levels of procedure hierarchy in the ISA S88 model.

“With an increased demand for product specialization, batch manufacturers need to be able to produce a wide range of products with different specifications, available on demand, and be able to quickly take advantage of new trends. Having a more flexible operation, which means being able to respond to changing customer needs quickly, helps batch manufacturers stay competitive,” said Steve McGeorge, product marketing manager at Honeywell. “Experion Batch Manager R410 delivers this flexibility by reducing cycle time, as well as lifecycle and production costs.”
