Plug-In HART Capable I/O ModulesPlug-in I/O modules for migrating ABB Taylor Mod 300 distributed control system (DCS) technology to Foxboro DCS technology without replacing field wiring or terminations are available. This significantly reduces the cost and downtime associated with migrating aging control systems to the latest generation of the I/A Series distributed control and InFusion enterprise control systems while achieving benefits of the HART communications protocol. The Foxboro migration plug-in I/O modules are manufactured to be a one-for-one form-fit replacement for legacy I/O modules. The cards plug into existing cabinets, racks, and termination assemblies without any I/O mapping issues. This eliminates the need for rewiring, requires no extra footprint, and completely replaces obsolete technology. In addition, this modular approach eliminates risk, is completely reversible, and reduces process impact to a few hours. Users can add new workstations and controllers, enjoying the benefits of a new I/A Series distributed control system without having to rip and replace existing field wiring and terminations. Automatic database conversion tools and in-house experts ensure satisfactory and efficient migration of existing intellectual data.
