Honeywell’s Experion LS targets smaller manufacturers

Scalable from a single PC and controller to multiple stations, Experion LS manages continuous process control applications and optimizes batch and sequence-oriented applications.


Orlando, FL – Honeywell  has introduced the Experion LS control system, a new  product within Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) line that is said to provide distributed control system (DCS)
Honeywell said the Experion LS manages all continuous process control applications and optimizes batch and sequence-oriented applications typically found at specialty chemicals, pharmaceutical, food and beverage and consumer goods producers. The system is scalable from a single PC and controller to multiple stations.
According to Honeywell, Experion LS requires less engineering effort to configure and is easier to maintain than a PLC or large DCS, thereby helping plants save up to $20,000 per year in support per system. The easier configuration is also said to enable faster and more-reliable changeovers, allowing operators to more easily modify batch recipes and increase production.
Experion LS features Honeywell’s S88 compliant and scalable solution for batch automation that can be fully redundant. The system features drag-and-drop configuration, pre-built algorithms, a global database, pre-configured displays and out-of-the-box batch functionality. Operational advantages are said to include the ability to make automation configuration changes without stopping production and offering operators a run-time view of control strategy and sequence status, redundant unit execution and integrated operator instructions.
