Automation Processes Safety System - Planar4

  • High-integrity pressure protection systems
  • Emergency stop systems on drilling platforms
  • Extremely time-critical safety circuits
  • Primary shut-down systems

Planar4 systems are programmed by means of wiring, which makes them extremely robust. Various wiring techniques are used for programming: solder, Termipoint, and Wire Wrap on the backplane bus board.

Input and output statuses, limits and time values can be transmitted via OPC-DA, PROFIBUS DP or MODBUS to control and visualisation systems. Events – HIMA signals with time stamps, that is – are transmitted via RS485 Alarm&Event.

The integrated diagnostic routines ensure rapid error signalling and easy trouble-shooting, even for untrained personnel. Remote diagnosis is possible in conjunction with the communication options.
