Augmenting DCS Capabilities with Universal I/O

Attendees are eligible for a certificate of completion.

Delve into the challenges of today’s process automation systems, such as system flexibility, tight project schedules and maintenance budget reduction. The new generation high availability input/output (I/O) platforms can help to reduce downtime and meet the demand for flexibility in project schedules and delivery complexities. Learn how the modern distributed control system (DCS), PlantPAx®, when coupled with the innovative FLEXHA 5000™ I/O platform addresses these needs, simplifies maintenance and optimizes lifecycle costs.

Learn how a universal I/O platform can be effectively implemented in distributed field enclosures, resulting in minimized lifecycle costs, optimized footprints and maximized return on process assets. Discover how to deliver projects faster and reap lifecycle benefits with a PlantPAx® system using universal I/O.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand differences between traditional I/O platforms and universal I/O platform, such as FLEXHA 5000™ I/O platform from Rockwell Automation.
  • Explore how new generation high availability I/O platforms reduce downtime and bring flexibility to project schedules and ease delivery complexities.
  • Learn how a flexible I/O platform, implemented in distributed field enclosures, minimizes lifecycle costs, optimizes footprints and maximizes return on investments.
  • See how a universal I/O system can augment DCS capabilities.
