    Extended Automation for Industries

    Process industry control with full integration for electrical, safety and telecoms in a single operations environment with System 800xA.

    What makes System 800xA 'Extended Automation'?

    Operator Effectiveness, Broad integration via a high-performance HMI for informed plant operation
  • With System 800xA, users enjoy a fully integrated enterprise where PLCs, DCS systems, safety systems, electrical systems, live video, maintenance systems, ERPs and more all work together in an seamless environment. The result is improved plant visibility and fast access to relevant information in real time, allowing operational issues to be resolved before downtime occurs.

  • Electrical Integration, Full implementation of IEC 61850 to seamlessly integrate the electrical system
  • Open standards such as IEC 61850 and Profibus/Profinet allows a seamless view of the complete electrical system including high, medium and low voltage equipment.

  • Integrated Communications, Collaboration through voice and video enabled communication
  • Voice and video enabled communication is integrated in System 800xA via our Extended Operator Workplace.

  • Integrated Safety, Integrate certified safety controllers and instrumentation from the beginning of system build
  • The 800xA High Integrity safety system is TUV certified for SIL3 and was designed with a flexible architecture, in a single configuration. It can be fully integrated with System 800xA, installed on a separate network from 800xA, process control and safety can be combined in the same controller and it can be installed independently and interfaced with any other DCS or HMI.

  • Enterprise Asset Management, Asset Management is built into System 800xA to ensure plant availability and performance
  • System 800xA offers plant-wide, real-time condition monitoring of all types of critical assets. By assigning asset diagnostic and maintenance data to any object in the system, 800xA presents an end-to-end, overall view of plant assets to allow operations and maintenance staff to increase asset availability and performance. When all assets are running at optimum health, maintenance costs are kept to a minimum.

  • A close collaboration between operations and maintenance creates a streamlined overall workflow where data from disparate systems such as third-party systems and Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) are communicated and shared to all stakeholders throughout the enterprise – from production, maintenance to management.

  • Software Extensions, Integrate information residing in different systems into one user interface

  • cpmPlus
