Emerson introduces DeltaV Connect for migrating Honeywell systems
The DeltaV Connect migration solution improves operational effectiveness and addresses process manufacturers concerns with the limits of older technologies including slow response times, loss of view to the process, difficulty in finding parts, and increasingly expensive support.
Our migration solutions, technology and expertise come together to offer many plants a compelling, low risk transition path for Honeywell legacy systems, as well as those from other automation suppliers, said Tom Snead, president of Emerson Process Management. We help process manufacturers take advantage of existing automation investments while building a base for the latest digital technologies.
Emerson builds migration solutions with open communications technologies which connect with existing systems while adding the latest operator interface, event and alarm management capabilities. The DeltaV Connect solution provides operators access to both Honeywell TPS/TDC 3000 system and DeltaV equipment from a common integrated DeltaV Operator Station. Process manufacturers can immediately replace their legacy Honeywell consoles, and have an easy transition path from their TDC 3000/TDC 2000 controllers and I/O to DeltaV equipment, in a phased approach which fits their timing. DeltaV Connect for Honeywell Systems v1.2 is compatible with DeltaV v7.4.1, DeltaV v8.3 and higher.
