Wireless mobility solution provides real-time field data

14 November 2012

Experion Mobile Access is a new mobility application that provides secure remote access to Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) through mobile computing devices, enabling field operators to view and respond to live information from Experion PKS while they are on rounds or inspecting the plant.

Operations teams, including field operators, are key stakeholders in operator driven reliability (ODR) programs undertaken by plants to reduce maintenance costs and increase operating efficiency. ODR programs require field operators to become actively involved in basic and proactive maintenance activities that necessitate the use real-time information from control systems such as process values, trends or alarms.

To meet the need for fast and easy access to plant data the Experion Mobile Access software application works securely with the Experion PKS architecture and the OneWireless Network, to provide seamless field data access for plants with complex processes and expansive footprints that rely on a large mobile operator staff for proper operations, and to support the availability of process equipment.

Commenting on the introduction, Ray Rogowski, director, wireless marketing at Honeywell Process Solutions, said: “Experion Mobile Access helps field operation teams find and avert process conditions that could affect production output. Recent ODR cases studies have shown that an average-size refinery or chemical plant can see up to $1 million per year in savings, a 15% improvement in mean time between failure of assets and a 10% reduction in maintenance costs. Effective ODR programs can bring about operational and cultural transformation. Our new Experion Mobile Access and our existing Field Advisor offering are two complementary tools that will help sites transform the day to day reliability activities as well as accelerate the adaption of their reliability program.”
