Courtesy: HoneywellHoneywell's Experion LX is a purpose-built distributed control system (DCS) for small to mid-size operations with continuous and batch process control applications. Experion LX is designed specifically for smaller plants – less than 5,000 I/O points, one engineering server, and up to 15 operator stations. It encompasses technology from Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS), and provides an agile way for process manufacturers to improve plant reliability, safety and efficiency, as well as facilitate a fast implementation and a reduction in total lifecycle costs.

Experion LX provides users of mid-size process plants with a reliable control system with no single point of failure and a user interface to help operators and engineers to be more efficient. For end-users with batch processes, the batch execution software operates in a redundant controller instead of a computer, eliminating the need for extra hardware and reducing the communication load and time for execution of each batch phase.  

Experion LX is designed to be delivered through system integrators and seamlessly integrate with third-party devices and drives, end-users will enjoy the benefit of dealing with a single supplier for all their needs, from field instrumentation to distributed control systems.
