“This key win clearly demonstrates the value customers place on Honeywell’s cement industry solutions,” said Jon Lippin, Managing Director of Honeywell Industry Solution’s Mining, Minerals and Metals Business. “Plantscape’s ability to integrate standard industry networks like Profibus demonstrates our commitment to providing a robust control environment that leverages new technology throughout the architecture.”
