Invensys Operations Management announced the availability of
version 2.1.1 of its Triconex® Trident™ safety system. The new version
has two new input modules that enhance worker safety, reduce downtime and
deliver more accurate trip analysis in power and turbomachinery applications,
helping customers to achieve safety excellence. One new module enables faster
response to unsafe equipment conditions; another optimizes trip data analysis
to prevent future upsets.
optimized trip analysis is the result of a new high-resolution digital input
module, which monitors changes of state and sequence of events (SOE) and
provides a timestamp resolution of one millisecond with an accuracy of one
millisecond. Process trips generate valuable information about the conditions
that caused the shutdown. Reviewing and analyzing such data can be challenging
and time consuming, however, and having SOE data with a one millisecond
resolution can be a significant aid in determining the root cause of the
maintaining maximum process uptime, Triconex safety systems can help meet and
exceed production targets. The scalable Triconex Trident safety system is based
on industry-proven triple modular redundant (TMR) technology that helps
customers protect plant personnel and production assets, as well as achieve
compliance with rigorous environmental standards by providing the highest
system availability and reliability.
One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicle’s parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but that’s just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
Design engineers need to prepare for a future in which their electronic products will use not just one or two, but possibly many user interfaces that involve touch, vision, gestures, and even eye movements.
