Tricon CX version 11.3 is compliant with the IEC 62443 standard and is certified by TÜV Rheinland for use in safety applications up to Safety Integrity Level 3. It is also ISASecure EDSA Level-1 certified, a cybersecurity certification for control systems, safety systems and system components. As a dual-certified process safety instrumented system, Tricon CX version 11.3 is designed to meet stringent requirements for safety, cybersecurity, risk reduction and continuous operation in the oil and gas, refining, petrochemicals, power and other high-hazard industries.
Leveraging the safety, availability and security features of EcoStruxure Triconex safety systems, the latest Tricon CX version 11.3 controller enables availability and performance for safety-critical applications, including emergency shutdown, fire and gas, burner management, high integrity pressure protection and critical control.
