The Honeywell Experion Batch solution

Honeywell’s Experion LX or UOC with batch functionalities is available from Thermo-Kinetics Company Limited. Experion® Batch combines compact Experion distributed control, batch automation, and advanced visualization technology to provide a solution optimized for pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, food and beverage, and similar applications.

This device’s modular, scalable design is built to function cost-efficiently with a variety of process equipment, and its flexible architecture accommodates the most challenging workplace applications.

Experion Batch incorporates the new ControlEdge™ Unit Operations Controller (UOC), reducing hardware footprint with a modular and space-efficient hardware package. Honeywell brings its full DCS batch automation power to a small, flexible form factor. Our UOC and our Virtual Unit Operations Controller extend the Experion control environment to a form factor that fits in even the smallest plant.

The option of executing in a virtual environment is especially useful in pilot plants, laboratories, and cost-sensitive operations. The Virtual UOC also decreases hardware footprint when a physical controller is not needed and provides increased availability through fault-tolerance where required.

Intelligent visualization

Experion Batch introduces patent-pending visualization technology, which automatically constructs look-ahead views. This user interface provides operators with insights to upcoming events or potential delays and the flexibility to conduct more tasks concurrently. This can dramatically increase productivity. Workflow-focused visualization lowers the criticality of operator experience at a time when the skills gap continues to increase in industry. Available from Thermo-Kinetics, Experion Batch presents the current and future state of operations in a natural intuitive manner, leveraging visual analytics.

DCS systems and controller-based functionalities

Locating batch functionality in unit-aligned controllers allows engineering and maintenance personnel to take a unit controller out of service without affecting the other unit operations. Distributed batch designs remove the requirement for a Windows-based batch server, eliminating the need for upkeep and patching associated with traditional systems. Meanwhile, redundant modular controllers—designed for batch operations and sequencing—deliver the required level of power and capacity users need, in a cost-effective manner.

A controller-based system is more robust by design. These systems provide a single, common database for regulatory and batch configuration. Additionally, eliminating the server dispenses with associated maintenance, security, and communication latency issues and costs. Ultimately, the critical benefit is increased throughput.
