October 26, 2018 — Rockwell Automation has updated its process safety logic-solver platforms to maximize uptime for industrial producers who want to help ensure compliance with the latest safety requirements. As companies face increasingly demanding process safety applications — whether a new installation or part of managing the installed base of legacy systems — the AADvance fault-tolerant system and Trusted fault-tolerant system utilizing the common SIS Workstation software are designed help producers meet the requirements of their process safety functions. All systems are compliant with the IEC 61508 functional safety standard.
SIS Workstation software: The latest SIS Workstation software converges the AADvance and Trusted design tools into one. Through the merging of technologies, users can now learn a single platform. The SIS Workstation software also uses a singular, modern configuration environment for both the AADvance and Trusted systems which enables field commissioning and is supported by all Microsoft Windows platforms.
Trusted fault-tolerant SIS: The updated Trusted system can now execute code up to three times faster for higher-speed applications, such as turbomachinery control. The system includes triple modular redundant (TMR) controllers, a range of analog and discrete I/O modules and specialty modules for turbomachinery control.
It is designed to help minimize system trips and provide availability and fault tolerance. The latest release also incorporates improved packaging to help enhance its performance in harsh environments —for applications in hot and humid conditions, such as offshore oil and gas operations.
AADvance fault-tolerant SIS: The updated AADvance system features communication compatibility with other plant-wide systems, such as ControlLogix controllers.
