ControlEdge PLCs offer unprecedented connectivity.

Thermo-Kinetics now offers a new PLC that features unmatched connectivity, cyber security and versatility. The ControlEdge PLC from Honeywell is the industry's first to offer universal I/O and also features OPC UA protocol. In addition, this is one of the first controllers that supports Honeywell's IIoT-ready initiative. The many benefits this controller can offer include better control performance with higher flexibility and lower costs.

Connectivity

ControlEdge provides connectivity that has never before been seen in a PLC. For instance, the IIoT-ready platform allows more direct access to cloud-based applications used for analytics and visualization. The multi-level and multi-platform open communication offered by ControlEdge enables flexible and scalable design and standardization with less hardware. By offering a common HMI for PLC and Experion, ControlEdge can reduce requirements for operator stations, hardware, wiring and training.

The many benefits of these connectivity features include easy configuration, efficient operation, and lower maintenance requirements to help free plant personnel from performing manual processes.

Security

The integrated cyber security in ControlEdge PLCs helps reduce risk and improve compliance. Some of the security features include a built-in firewall, secure boot to prevent unauthorized software from being uploaded, and a certified secure development lifecycle.

Pre-engineered options

The ControlEdge PLC can be supplied in pre-engineered solutions for specific applications. They include pre-designed hardware and software that makes engineering and commissioning faster and easier. The other benefits of pre-engineered options are fast delivery, high reliability, high productivity and low cost.
