HONEYWELL TDC3000 MIGRATION TO EXPERION PKS
Our customer in petroleum refinery intended to upgrade their Honeywell TDC 3000 legacy control system. By considering to budget and plant downtime, we put three upgrading scenarios on the table for the customer, Upgrade only HMI, Upgrade HMI and replace controller, complete replacement and the customer chose migration to Experion PKS by upgrading HMI and replacing the controllers.
This was an optimized solution that could improve operation efficiency and increase system performance.
We rewrote new logic based on derivate data from TDC 3000 application and by contribution of the customer’s process and control engineers we could test and simulate new logic in our office multiple times.100% control loops were checked before installing new controller at site. Accurate FAT allowed us to have quick installation and commissioning, only TDC3000 controllers replaced by Honeywell C300 and PMIO cabinets, FTA and field wiring remained untouched. IO link is onboard C300 and Experion PKS support PM family IO link.
Completing this project could solve the customer issues with old control system and operation efficiency increased due to more flexible operator interfaces, better self-diagnostic and stronger cyber security and production throughput improved, also production and maintenance cost reduced.
