Centralized control system infrastructure

By Chemical Engineering |

At the ARC Industry Forum in February, Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS; Houston; www.honeywellprocess.com) released the Experion PKS IT Highly Integrated Virtual Environment (HIVE), a new technology that centralizes up to 80% of IT infrastructure used in project engineering. The PKS IT HIVE untethers industrial enterprises from running IT workloads where their controllers are located — instead giving them the freedom and flexibility to run workloads on-site, at a remote data center, or a combination of both, says Joe Bastone, director of Experion PKS product management. This enables control systems to be engineered and implemented in less time, at lower cost and risk, and with simpler, modular builds. The new solution allows customers to view and manage their entire infrastructure through a single dashboard at any given location, via a network tunnel that uses existing wide-area networks (WANs), rather than dedicated new infrastructure. Centralizing IT infrastructure and reducing networking and computing resources required to run on-site allows users to reduce maintenance and free process control engineers from administration to focus on higher-value activities, including process optimization, Honeywell says. Furthermore, centralization…
