ABB DCS System

System 800xA which stands for ‘Extended Automation’ is the only automation platform that unifies the ability to engineer, commission, and execute automation strategies for process, power management, electrical and safety in the same redundant, reliable system. Their solutions includes:

  • Distributed Control System (DCS),
  • Emergency Shutdown System (ESD),
  • Safety Instrumented System (SIS),
  • Fire & Gas System(FGS)
  • Integrated Control & Safety System (ICSS)

ABB’s integration architecture relates all plant data (the Aspects) to specific plant assets (or Objects). The platform’s client-server architecture streamlines controller communications, centralizes configuration and back-up tasks, and provides system-wide management of data for trend, history and audit trail purposes. System 800xA also provides hardware freedom of choice regarding server and workstation computer hardware, even leveraging virtualization technology to streamline and simplify computer systems maintenance.
