The HC900 process automation controller is an ideal control solution for user needs ranging from thermal control in boilers, furnaces, kilns, and dryers to unit processing in pharmaceutical, chemical, bio-fuel, pilot-plant and other applications. With its TUV certification, the HC900 safety system can be used in applications requiring SIL2 such as emergency shutdown (ESD), critical controls, burner management systems (BMS), pipeline monitoring, tunnel ventilation systems and other critical applications.
What Is It?
The HC900 process and safety controller is an advanced process and logic controller with a modular, scalable design that is built to work with a wide range of process equipment in a cost-effective way. It comes with a touchscreen operator interface that makes it very easy to operate. The process and safety controller possesses a flexible architecture that can accommodate the most demanding application.
With its advanced features and versatile connectivity, it is capable of customized pinpoint control. The HC900 controller also simplifies the documentation process and eliminates filing errors.
How Does It Work?
The modular, scalable HC900 process and safety controller is available in three rack sizes and three CPU performance levels to handle a wide range of automation requirements, providing users the flexibility of starting with what they need, and then expanding as desired. Its Windows-based designer software operates over Ethernet, making it easy to configure the logic controller and operator interface.
The touchscreen operator interface and user-friendly custom displays enable streamlined, intuitive operation, help eliminate errors, and provide improved data access and process supervision. This logic controller includes a selection of controller CPU modules, multiple I/O rack sizes and multiple local or remote I/O racks per system that provide flexibility. The logic controller also provides superior PID loop control and more robust analog processing than most logic controllers without compromising on logic performance.
What Problems Does It Solve?
The control design of HC900 process and safety controller reduces hardware and software costs, training and support needs, and the requirement for spares, thereby bringing significant cost savings to users.
The HC900 SIL2 system is an ideal fit for applications where plant and operations need to be quickly brought into safe state in case of adverse operating conditions. When paired with Experion HS, it can meet FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements for pharmaceuticals, and food and beverage industries that require advanced controller security and protection, change management and automated electronic record keeping capabilities.
