The new Triconex
General Purpose System reportedly enables businesses to fulfill requirements
for critical control applications needing high availability (e.g.,
turbomachinery control), as well as SIL 2 safety applications (e.g., emergency
shutdown, fire and gas protection and burner management). The system is
compatible with Invensys' Triconex Tricon and Triconex Trident safety systems
that already meet SIL 3 requirements.
The new Triconex system comes with safety and critical control application
libraries, proven in demanding real world applications, and its functionality,
according to Invensys Operations Management is proven to reduce engineering and
maintenance costs, providing optimum safety and maximizing plant uptime. It
also integrates with all well-known process control systems using industry
standard protocols, and for added protection, is Achilles-certified, protecting
it from cyber attack.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
