Honeywell Process Solutions new Experion® Orion Console builds on Honeywell’s flagship Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) control platform. It features an improved ergonomic design and better displays to simplify control system management, reduce operator fatigue and improve situational awareness. The Experion Orion Console’s design was based on operator input gleaned from numerous visits to plant control rooms around the world and across industries, in both newer and older plants. The 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.
The console’s features include a large flexible, ultra-high definition display that provides clear status assessments of process operations in a single glance for better and more-informed management. This flexibility also enables operators to customize displays for context-specific process issues, and incorporates advanced alarm management and pan and zoom capabilities. Limits and targets are directly integrated into overview displays, allowing operation of the process closer to the optimum and allowing operators an increased scope of responsibility across the industrial facility.
