Cyber Security Honeywell Showcases New Technologies for Cyber Security
Honeywell has introduced several new technologies that will transform control rooms of the future, including an advanced dashboard to help industrial plants better manage control-system cyber security. The Cyber Security Dashboard is among several advancements being demonstrated at the 2013 Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Asia-Pacific Symposium taking place in Perth.
Bangalore/India – Other new control-room technologies highlighted at the event include the Experion Collaboration Station with expanded capability, the recently announced Premium Platform for Experion Virtualization Solutions, and the newest version of Honeywell’s OneWireless Network. Additionally, the company previewed a futuristic console for its Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) Orion platform that reduces operator fatigue with an improved, ergonomic design featuring a larger display and new alarm lighting. Honeywell expects to launch the Experion Orion Console – which was designed based on input from operators – with the platform’s next release in 2014 to provide better mobility for operators while improving situational awareness.
“In many ways, the control room of the future won’t be limited to the control room at all, and that concept is perfectly illustrated through technologies like OneWireless, because it extends the control room to the field,” said Jason Urso, chief technology officer, Honeywell Process Solutions. “At the same time, because we expect increasing connectivity, we’ll see a greater need for cyber security management systems like the Cyber Security Dashboard, and collaboration solutions like Experion Collaboration Station. These solutions complement each other to improve overall plant safety, reliability, efficiency, and sustainability.”
