Key Message
The HC900 Hybrid Control System is an advanced process and logic control system offering a modular,
scalable design that is sized to meet automation needs ranging from thermal control in boilers, furnaces
and kilns to small-unit processing. The HC900 reduces hardware, software, training and support
requirements as a result of a modular/scalable platform design, intuitive operation and software tools
that use graphic objects to represent function blocks used for control strategy development. Modularity,
built-in redundancy, versatile I/O configuration and
network connectivity, plus the ability to configure
complete process solutions and archive program
parameters for easy retrieval and implementation,
permits customized pinpoint control.
For those applications where process management
is primarily performed by a local operator, an
effective operator interface becomes a key element
in the purchasing decision. The 900 Control Station
(color display with touchscreen) provides unique
HC900 database integration, predefined displays,
custom display development tools and data
archiving to enhance local process monitoring,
control and the ability to track, validate and archive
process performance.

consideration overcomes tough application constraints.
What is the problem you are trying to solve?
What has prevented you from solving your problem?
What is the project and application size?
Is this a standalone or networked automation need (peer-to-peer,
SCADA, remote I/O)?
Are there demanding system uptime requirements (redundancy)?
Are there recordkeeping, data historization and trending needs?
Do operators need local process supervision, data access (local operator
panel/display) and are there custom process display requirements?
What is the application mix of analog and discrete I/O, and how many
control loops?
Who installs, integrates and maintains your automation solution?
Are there any unique system certification or documentation
Do you anticipate future system expansion needs?
Next Steps
• Understand and analyze the important features of the customer
buying decision
• Segment customer “must” and “want” requirements
• Determine how product features meet customer “musts” and “wants”
and identify HC900 attributes that differentiate from next best alternative
• Contact Honeywell PSS or marketing resources for technical support
in addressing unmet or unclear customer needs
