:: Teck Cominco Chooses Invensys

Teck Cominco Metals selected Invensys Process Systems to implement a new mesh network-based Foxboro I/A Series (www.foxboro.com) automation system for the electrolytic and melting plant processes at the Trail Metallurgical Complex.

Invensys implemented the latest I/A Series Version 8.X hardware and software, including a mesh control network, the FCP270 family of field-mounted control processors in fault-tolerant configurations, and Foxboro migration integrator modules. Using Foxboro's latest field device system integrator (FDSI) modules, the new control system will also interface with existing Modicon PLC systems. Approximately 1,200 I/O points in the electrolytic and melting processes will be controlled and monitored by the new system.

To support the new implementation, Invensys Systems Canada provided a range of services, including engineering services, system staging and factory acceptance testing, training services, and field services for the I/A Series system at Teck Cominco.

Complete information about Invensys process systems is available at ips.invensys.com.
