September 16, 2015 – An ISASecure accredited test lab, exida, certified the Honeywell Experion C300 Controller R410 to the ISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification.

The Experion C300 Controller R410 is Honeywell’s newest firmware version of its field-proven Experion C300 Controller product line. This maintenance of certification for the Experion C300 Controller demonstrates Honeywell’s continued commitment to the ISASecure industrial automation and control system (IACS) cybersecurity conformance scheme.

The C300 controller supports a wide variety of process control situations, including continuous and batch processes and integration with smart field devices, and works across a variety of networks—allowing  engineers to address their most demanding process control requirements.

TheISASecure Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) certification is a demonstrable indicator to Honeywell’s  customers that the company is committed to safety and security in its products. ISASecure assures that the Experion C300 Controller R410 is free of known cybersecurity vulnerabilities and robust against network attacks. The ISASecure EDSA certification assesses IACS products against the draft IEC 62443-4-2 and IEC 62443-4-1 standards and will be updated when the final standards are fully approved.

The Honeywell controller registration and certificate can be viewed on the ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) web site ().
