  • Safety Systems – From "Add-On" to Integral Process

    Despite increased dependence on ever more powerful process–control and safety systems, the human aspect remains an integral part of any plant's operation. ABB believes that the safety system of the future is no longer an "add–on," that is designed and supplied separately from the rest of the plant or process, but an integral part of it.

  • Diverse Redundancy Used to Achieve Higher Safety Integrity

    Diverse Redundancy is being used in SIS technology to achieve higher safety integrity. Diverse redundancy refers to the use of two or more different systems, which are built using different components, algorithms, electronics, design methodology etc. to perform the same task. One benefit of diverse redundancy is the increased capabilities to reduce common mode and systematic failures such as those caused by design flaws.

  • For the Sake of the Environment and the Economy: A New SCADA System Based on System 800xA

    TVIS is a heat transmission company for the Trekantomradet geographical area of Denmark. It takes care of excess heat from the industries and power plants in the area and redistributes the heat in pipelines to households, public institutions, offices, shops and other facilities in the area. ABB in Denmark has supplied TVIS a SCADA solution based on System 800xA for controlling the district heating network. Read this white paper to learn how TVIS, in conjunction with ABB's new SCADA solution system, monitors heat transmissions remotely and safely.

  • Seven Ways Today's Distributed Control Systems (DCS) Can Improve Your Operations

    In the past, DCS systems were large, expensive and very complex. This drove many control engineers to use programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and human machine interface (HMI) in order to lower cost. Today, these implementations are consistently more expensive than DCS systems for the same process or batch application. Many forward thinking engineers using PLCs and HMI in process or batch applications have learned there are ways to significantly reduce costs, speed implementation and improve operations. Download this white paper to learn key advantages of DCS systems over PLC/HMI engineered systems and the typical value of each.

  • The Practical Application of Aspect Object Technology in a Distributed Control System

    A central problem in plant operations, as well as in asset lifecycle management, is that you need a way to keep together, manage and have access to information about all different aspects of a great number of plant and process entities (objects). In a system that integrates automation, information and collaborative business processes across the enterprise, each of these real-world objects needs to be described from several different perspectives.
