Foxboro PAC hardware combines high I/O density
with cost-effective redundancy options. The control unit and I/O system form
the basis of a complete distributed control and recording environment capable
of continuous analog, logic and sequential control. It is also has secure data
recording at point of measurement.
The Foxboro PAC System is useful for
delivering control, alarm management, historian, web reporting and batch
functionality for applications in the food & beverage, glass, metals,
minerals, mining, life sciences, plastics, water and wastewater and other
industries. ArchestrA integration is effected in three areas: in the IDE, for
control system configuration; with device integration for runtime control
system data communications; and with the Wonderware Application Server for
runtime logic and visualization.
Key capabilities of the PAC reported by Invensys include:
Up to 3,000 I/O
Integration with the InFusion ECS
swap any I/O card or single processor
across processor, communications, power and I/O
(CPU speed) and I/O density improvements from previous offering
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
