Automation Technology Offers the Lowest Total Cost of Ownership While Extending Uptime and the Life of Intellectual Assets
ISTANBUL, – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the release of the next generation of its most widely used industrial process controller, the High-Performance Process Manager (HPM). The new controller, Enhanced High-Performance Process Manager (EHPM), allows 25 years of distributed control system installed base to seamlessly migrate to the Experion® Process Knowledge System. Cost of migration is significantly reduced by preserving control strategies and wiring.
Honeywell’s EHPM solution streamlines plant modernization by significantly reducing risks associated with a legacy system upgrade and reducing plant downtime.
“Honeywell’s commitment to continuous evolution allows plants to take what was once a legacy system and gradually, in a step-by-step fashion, move it forward such that it becomes part of a new, modern system while at the same time protecting the plant’s intellectual property,” says Jason Urso, vice president and chief technology officer, Honeywell Process Solutions.
EHPM is the latest step in Honeywell’s commitment to continuous evolution. In 2004, the company introduced the Experion Station for TPS, which allowed users to capture new operational benefits through improved process visualization, better alarm management, and the ability to automate procedures. This evolution continues with EHPM.
“EHPM maintains a safe and reliable system while modernizing and evolving with the most advanced technologies,” said Urso. “It keeps established, reliable systems running longer, extends uptime, and preserves investment in wiring, control algorithms, and displays.”
Honeywell’s modernization roadmap incorporates full flexibility in lifecycle planning, including long-term support of existing equipment for life expectancy extensions and upgrades for plant performance improvements. Honeywell’s support and expertise help industrial facilities protect current investments and extended system lifecycle.
