New Tricon CX version 11.3 users benefit from the most powerful safety system that leverages the best of the proven Tricon and Trident Safety Integrity Level 3 systems with the ease of future expansion.

Enhancing ROI with value-focused offers

With improved ease of use, a smaller footprint, less design effort, fewer drawings to produce and less wiring, Tricon CX version 11.3 helps increase time to value by 25 per cent, reduces installation costs by 30 per cent and increases productivity by up to five per cent. Additionally, Tricon CX version 11.3 is also compatible with multiple EcoStruxure Triconex safety systems applications, including:

  • Safety Validator, which automatically tests, validates and documents EcoStruxure Triconex safety system application logic—saving up to 40 per cent of software test hours.
  • SIF Manager, which tracks and validates Safety Instrumented Function performance over the lifecycle of a plant.
  • Safety View, a TÜV-certified software application that enhances insight into high-priority alarms for operators, boosting their efficiency and effectiveness in responding to critical situations.
  • System Auditor, an essential tool for documenting EcoStruxure Triconex safety systems and managing alarms.
  • Tricon, Trident and Tri-GP high-availability, high-integrity edge controllers.

“With its value-focused features, Triconex CX version 11.3 can reduce our customers’ total cost of ownership by up to eight per cent,” said Steve Elliott, senior marketing director, Process Automation Control and Safety offerings, Schneider Electric. “In addition, its triple redundant, high-availability architecture, inherent redundancy management, online module replacement and change/modification capabilities are proven to help process manufacturers increase ROI by 11 per cent.

“Our customers, especially those in heavy process and high-hazard environments, require the highest levels of safety performance, while maximizing profitability and business performance. Because it helps plant personnel better identify, plan and manage operating and business risks, Tricon CX version 11.3 not only reduces the likelihood of unexpected production outages and downtime, it also helps our customers move from managing their process safety as a cost center to controlling it as a profit centre.”

Using connectors on UL 508A cabinets used to be a huge hassle for the panel-builder. As a result, they often chose the older hardwiring solution in the past. Now, HARTING, in partnership with UL, has made it possible to easily connectorize UL 508A panels with existing HARTING products. Get the asnwers for the six FAQs HERE.

 

 

 

One of Canada’s largest wastewater treatment plants at Annacis Island provides secondary treatment to approximately 175 billion litres of wastewater every year for over 1 million residents in 14 municipalities. After almost 20 years in operation, the variable frequency drives supporting the critical pumping systems for the primary treatment and secondary treatment facilities had to be replaced to ensure that the plant’s high operational availability and reliability will not be compromised in serving the plant, the surrounding municipalities and the environment. Metro Vancouver Regional District chose to deploy Rittal’s enclosure and power distribution solutions with E-plan software to efficiently support vital infrastructure improvements by reducing equipment replacement times and thereby minimizing risk to plant operations.

Cybertech developed the Process Control and Safety Instrumented System Auditor to identify high-risk misalignments between plant process control and safety systems – and provide sufficient guidance to each plant system owner to resolve material issues.

Computerized data analytics are effective in mining the big data found in a typical process facility. The Cybertech System Auditor accepts native data from plant systems, cleans up and standardizes the data with purpose-built C# data mining applications and SQL data manipulation. Tiered SQL views minimize data duplication and facilitate automatic updates when base native data changes (e.g. after a system owner advises that they have resolved identified issues).
