Honeywell's Experion Orion Console boosting plant efficiency

July 27, 2016 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that more than 130 Experion Orion Consoles have been sold globally, helping industrial plants operate more safely and efficiently by transforming the control room experience and enhancing operator effectiveness.

Since the introduction of Honeywell’s TDC 2000 controller in the early 1970s, industrial control rooms have relied on a growing number of monitors and systems to manage an equally ever-expanding set of technologies. Operating units have grown in size and number in response to growing consumer demand for products. Less than two years ago, Honeywell introduced the newest advancement for industrial control rooms – the Experion Orion Console. Shortly after that introduction, plants in industries as varied as refining, petrochemicals, mining, oil and gas, and pulp and paper began installing the technology.
One of the earliest implementations of Experion Orion Console was at ICL Brasil’s Cajati chemical plant, near Sao Paulo, Brazil.

“The Cajati plant has been an important part of our company’s success for almost 30 years,” said Arnaldo Dias Jr., industrial manager of ICL Brasil. “For this upgrade, we needed technology that would help us boost our competitiveness and improve our leading position as the premier manufacturer of phosphoric acid.”
HPS has similar projects ongoing at critical manufacturing and production sites in countries such as Angola, Australia, Brazil, Chile, Kuwait, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Oman, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the United States. 

In 2015, the console was recognized as a winner of Control Engineering Magazine’s Engineers’ Choice award in the Hardware category. The console builds on Honeywell’s flagship Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) control platform and features IIoT connectivity and an ergonomic design to improve the effectiveness of operators. The console provides a single interaction point where all plant data can be displayed and acted on in a meaningful manner.
The Experion Orion Console’s design was based on operator inputs generated from numerous visits to plant control rooms around the world and across industries, in both newer and older plants. The software, hardware design and capabilities are the result of behavior observations, as well as insights collected in multiple phases at plants, including process startups and during periods of abnormal operations.
