Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Inc. (Vernon Hills, IL) has paired its proven iQ-R Series integrated control platform with a redundant function module to create a redundant process control system for applications that require highly reliable control. The iQ-R Series Process CPU/Redundant System is designed specifically for industries such as oil and gas, wastewater and building automation with applications that require near 100 percent uptime to prevent harmful or costly disruptions.
For example, in building automation, redundant controllers can be used in a centralized control system to manage HVAC, lighting, emergency response, elevator systems and other electrical components. In oil and gas, redundant controllers can manage break systems for crane equipment, emergency shut down systems and transportation pipelines.
Key features of the iQ-R Series Redundant Control System include:
- Redundancy across multiple levels, reducing single-point failures.
- High availability at multiple levels for improved system reliability.
- Extensive visualization and data acquisition with Mitsubishi Electric SCADA MC Works64.
- Easy configuration with GX Works3 integrated engineering software.
