1 Field Products Experion LX Proven Distributed Control System for Mid-size Applications
2 Experion LX is based on Honeywell s award-winning Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) and leverages Honeywell s proven track record in DCS applications.
3 A DCS to control and optimize continuous and batch applications. The specialty chemicals, biofuels, industrial and mid-size power, metals, water, and food & beverage industries are continually looking to reduce costs while meeting more stringent regulations and increased sustainability objectives. One way to accomplish these goals is through the functionality of a distributed control system (DCS), which can control and automate your plant while providing the system reliability and greater fl exibility that traditional PLCs are unable to offer. However, many leading DCS systems are simply too big and not cost-effective for smaller mid-size manufacturing operations. Honeywell s mid-tier DCS Experion LX helps manufacturers worldwide meet these challenges. It provides you with the agility to respond to product mix changes and offers advanced optimization and batch technology usually found in larger DCS systems but at an affordable price. Experion LX manages all continuous process control applications and optimizes batch and sequence-oriented applications. It s scalable from a single HMI and controller to many stations and controllers. It incorporates Honeywell s latest C300 controller technology and an innovative Series 8 I/O platform. Straightforward confi guration and advanced engineering tools enable faster project implementation or system changes, allowing you to expand and modify operations to meet growing and changing business demands. The results are increased production, more fl exible product mix changes, and faster introduction of new products and formulations.

6 The high performance you need. Experion LX is built specifi cally to meet the precise requirements of mid-sized applications. It helps: Controller-based batch: Experion LX allows multiple batch recipes to execute completely in the C300 controller. A controller-based system is inherently more performant than a typical server-based batch system and the absence of a separate batch server removes the associated costs, security and maintenance issues as well as communication latency. Common engineering and operating tools for batch with the rest of the system provide a single consistent platform for batch development and execution that complies with S88 industry batch standards. Batch recipes can be completely executed in the C300 controller in a reliable environment, eliminating the thousands of communication tasks between a server and controller in a typical batch operation and ultimately increasing production throughput and reliability. Profit Loop: Honeywell s Profi t Loop incorporates the best elements of traditional PID algorithms and model-based advanced control and optimization technologies to address all loop control needs. It delivers greater profi tability, reliability and safety with the lowest cost of ownership. Profi t Loop increases process stability by up to 30% to signifi cantly lower valve travel and maintenance, delivering improved and advanced control performance that is robust in nature.
7 Easy to confi gure and use. Experion LX contributes to faster engineering, increased uptime, and lower lifecycle costs, while fully empowering the limited resources of a smaller operation. Engineering advantages: Reduce the time spent getting the system ready for fi rst production with features such as drag-and-drop confi guration, prebuilt algorithms, global database, integrated tag confi guration (defi ne tag, alarms, history, displays in one place), over 300 preconfi gured displays, common engineering tools for continuous, sequence and batch, template support, bulk build / bulk edit, automatic loop tuning, and control strategy simulation. Operational advantages: Make it easier for your operators to run your plant by giving them the information they need to make timely decisions without cluttering their view of the process. Features include confi guration changes without stopping production, run-time view of control strategy and sequence status, advanced operator alarm management tools such as alarm shelving, integrated workfl ow for operators including integrated view of all plant data along with fi ngertip access to operator instructions and procedures. Customize to fi t your application. Experion LX is a cost-effective DCS that can be easily tailored to address the specifi c requirements of your mid-size applications.
