Technical details from Schneider Electric for their vision of #APACS migration

 

Staying competitive means continuously improving the assets of your plant throughout its productive life.

It involves the capability to modernize through a manageable path of updating legacy control systems.

I/O Plug-In Solutions

Your existing system needs to be replaced, but you can’t afford the high cost, high risk and extended downtime of typical replacement solutions.

The Schneider Electric existing system migration solution is the only solution specifically designed to avoid those penalties. We manufacture our I/O modules as form-fit replacements for your original I/O equipment. We reuse your existing termination assemblies, cabinets, power supplies and I/O racks. Add new controllers and workstations, and you have a 100% new, fully warranted Foxboro Evo System.

Schneider Electric’ existing system migration solution minimizes the cost, risk and process downtime of a full system replacement. We have helped hundreds of clients successfully migrate their legacy Bailey, Fisher Provox, Honeywell, APACS, and Westinghouse systems to a 100% new, highly reliable, secure and modern #Foxboro Evo system.
