Fault-tolerant automation systems reduce the risk of production outages.
The two redundant subsystems of the AS410H automation system are galvanically isolated, and can be mounted on a compact module rack or two separate module racks. The arrangement on two module racks makes it possible to physically separate the redundant subsystems up to 10km.
By separating them physically additional safety is gained in cases of extreme outside effects on the local environment of the active subsystem, such as fire.
And the galvanic isolation means that the system stays unsusceptible to effects of EMC disruptions. Fault-tolerant SIMATIC PCS 7 automation systems can be operated in a plant configuration either alone or together with standard or failsafe automation systems.
