The ControlEdge PLC by Honeywell

Honeywell Process Solutions is one of many esteemed manufacturers whose equipment is available via Thermo-Kinetics Company Limited. Among Honeywell’s innovative products is the ControlEdge PLC, the first programmable logic controller on the market to provide universal input/output (I/O) and integrated cybersecurity. The ControlEdge PLC offers unmatched engineering flexibility, with I/O options for system design, connectivity to more devices, and more protocols for native connectivity.

Lower total ownership cost

The ControlEdge PLC controller substantially reduces configuration, integration, and support expenses as it minimizes downtime through unified support when combined with the Experion PKS. It also lowers the total cost of ownership through a higher system lifecycle, and it has support for lean project execution. The device has earned ISASecure Level 2 certification with Ethernet/IP capabilities, a serial interface module, and cloud-enabled engineering.

ControlEdge and Experion together leverage a common HMI platform, provide faster field device commissioning, and improve device diagnostics. With its OPC UA protocol and built-in cybersecurity, the ControlEdge PLC provides smooth integration to various brands of instruments, equipment, and software. This device from Thermo-Kinetics is also the first PLC available to offer HART-enabled Universal I/O, while providing remote configuration and late design change flexibility for superior project implementation.

The device has an IIoT-compatible platform that allows more direct access to cloud-based applications in analytics and visualization; it also provides multi-level, multi-platform open communication, which enables flexible, scalable design and standardization requiring less hardware. ControlEdge offers a level of connectivity higher than that of any other PLC, with simpler configuration, efficient operation, and fewer maintenance needs.

Integrated cybersecurity is another major benefit of the ControlEdge PLC. It has a built-in firewall, secure boot to prevent unauthorized software from being uploaded, and a certified secure development lifecycle, all to lower risk while boosting compliance.
