ICS Triplex


Fault Tolerant Control Systems

The AADvance solution is a truly distributed, scaleable architecture which comprises of both a hardware controller and a software environment that allows the user to apply different levels of module redundancy as required by specific parts of their application. AADvance offers a high level of flexibility from small quantity I/O to large systems; non-safety to SIL 3, and fail-safe to multiple fault tolerant.

The single greatest threat to safety remains human error and the AADvance environment helps reduce that risk. Users can control and update their plant-wide safety management system from a single AADvance workstation, running several projects from that station while the controllers distributed throughout the plant communicate intuitively, vastly reducing time spent updating individual terminals and the margin for human error.

The AADvance concept is built on a set of fundamental requirements:

  • Cost effective for SIL1-3 in the same system
  • Appropriate for small to large I/O systems
  • Scaleable redundancy for fault tolerance
  • Distributed processing power
  • High performance regardless of size
  • Simple single point configuration and system management
  • Simple but complete integration between all AADvance enabled controllers including existing ICS Triplex proprietary systems as well as third party AADvance enabled equipment.
