Alfa Laval Control Systems Receive Certification

Receive Certification The control systems SattCon 05, SattCon OP45 and SattCon 200 from Alfa Laval Automation have been certified by Det Norske Veritas in compliance with the organization's rules for classification of ships and mobile offshore units. SattCon 200 is a programmable logical controller (PLC) for medium to large applications — from 200 inputs and outputs (I/O) to more than 2,000 I/Os. Since SattCon is built up in flexible modules which use a remotely distributed I/O architecture, it is suitable for marine applications. SattCon 05 is also a modular PLC, but it is more suitable for smaller applications. Both control systems offer multifunctionality, since they use PID loops, text and alarm handling, supervision functions and various necessary communication solutions. The operator panel SattCon OP45 is a system which integrates the operators' display and keyboard in one unit. SattCon OP45 is suitable for smaller control tasks, including operator functions in a distributed configuration such as needed onboard ships.

SattCon 200 has a wide range of CPUs which increases its flexibility. The fast remote I/O and integrated terminals also save installation costs. Maintenance is facilitated by I/O fault detection and faulty I/O modules detection. For more information on A l f a Laval Circle 16 on Reader Service Card
