Tricon CX

The Tricon CX compact system for safety and critical control applications in the oil and gas, power, refining, chemicals, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, where safe operations are critical and reliable operation is paramount. A certified ISA Secure system, the high integrity and highly-available Tricon CX controller ensures operational integrity This high performance, future-proof Tricon CX offers robust capability, helps maximize productivity, reliability and security while minimizing risks and the likelihood of business interruption. The advanced functionality of the Tricon CX enables online upgrades without operational disturbance.

TMR employs three isolated, parallel control systems and extensive diagnostics integrated into one system. The system uses two-out-of-three voting to provide high integrity, error-free, uninterrupted process operation with no single point of failure. Setting up applications is simplified, because the Triplicated TMR system operates as a single control system from the user's point of view. The extensive diagnostics are inherent and transparent to the programmer. All diagnostic information is stored in system variables and available to the user.
