For many businesses, improving operational excellence by maximizing gross margins, product quality and financial performance, while reducing operating expenses, has become a top priority. At the same time, stringent health, regulatory and environmental compliance issues are driving an even greater focus on safety. The versatility of the new Triconex General Purpose System enables businesses to fulfill requirements for critical control applications needing high availability, for example, turbomachinery control, as well as SIL 2 safety applications, such as emergency shutdown, fire and gas protection and burner management. It is also compatible with Invensys’ Triconex Tricon™ and Triconex Trident™ safety systems that already meet SIL 3 requirements. High-availability architecture means that any Triconex safety system never needs to stop, improving clients’ performance and profitability and allowing them to generate more revenue.
