Hybrid Controller with Redundancy Capability
October 1, 2005
HC900 has redundancy capability to allow process manufacturers to continue operations in the event of a controller failure. The hybrid controller automates small- to medium-sized process equipment, either stand-alone or with open Ethernet Modbus/TCP connectivity. It can be applied in a range of applications due to a common platform that can be used for both redundant and non-redundant controllers. The lead CPU handles all control functions and host communications during operation. The reserve CPU will take over control if the lead CPU fails. The controller is useful for furnace control, turbine monitoring, boiler tube temperature monitoring, crystal growing, wafer processing, fermenters and pasteurizers.
