AADvance Workbench 2.0 helps manufacturers get process-safety applications up and running faster. Designed for applications that require a flexible architecture, distributed safety and mixed SIL levels, this product is a complete design, configuration and maintenance software environment. The system enables companies to protect people, equipment and the environment by ensuring safe and continuous operation. The system consists of the scalable AADvance controller platform configured to any mix of SIL1 to SIL3 simplex, redundant or triplicated safety loops. Several units can be used to form a network of distributed safety controllers seamlessly integrated to monitor and control thousands of safey I/O points. A system is configured using the workbench software to suit any functional-safety or critical-control application using a standard range of modules and assemblies.
