Plug-In Hart capable I/O modules

05 February 2009

Invensys Process Systems offers plug-in I/O modules for migrating ABB Taylor Mod 300 distributed control system (DCS) technology to Foxboro DCS technology without replacing field wiring or terminations. This significantly reduces the cost and downtime associated with migrating aging control systems to the latest generation of IPS' I/A Series distributed control and InFusion enterprise control systems while achieving benefits of the Hart communications protocol.

IPS' unique Foxboro migration plug-in I/O modules are manufactured to be a one-for-one form-fit replacement for legacy I/O modules. The cards plug into existing cabinets, racks and termination assemblies without any I/O mapping issues. This eliminates the need for rewiring, requires no extra footprint and completely replaces obsolete technology. This modular approach eliminates risk, is completely reversible and reduces process impact to a few hours. Users can add workstations and controllers, enjoying the benefits of a I/A Series distributed control system without having to rip and replace existing field wiring and terminations. Automatic database conversion tools and in-house experts ensure satisfactory and efficient migration of existing intellectual data.

After migration, the client's control system - including the remaining legacy infrastructure - is under IPS' full warranty and continuously current lifecycle policy, so it will never face end-of-life technology or abandonment again. The I/O replacement method also makes the process completely reversible, which means the client can return to their original control configuration at any time.
