DeltaV Digital Automation SystemTMSystem Overview
DELTAV DIGITAL AUTOMATION SYSTEMWith continued focus on human centered design, the DeltaV system deliverssignificant enhancements that help eliminate unnecessary work processes,removes the complexity of using the latest technologies and embeds specializedknowledge–improving your operations, easy.What you want, when you want it, where you want it.With the introduction of I/O onDemand, an unprecedentedamount of field I/O adaptability,ease-of-integration and plantavailability becomes possible.Costs and concerns around singlepoints of failure, marshalled crosswiring, power and grounding ofFOUNDATIONTM fieldbus segments,and late project I/O and processdesign change orders cancompletely disappear.Regardless of I/O type–traditionally wired I/O, FOUNDATIONfieldbus, Profibus DP, DeviceNet,AS-i bus, or even redundantInherent functionality regardless of size.Process control facilities andapplications certainly come in allsizes and levels of complexity. Tomaximize the return on yourinvestment, the automationsystem should easily scale withoutadding complexity.Part of Emerson's PlantWebTMarchitecture, the DeltaVTM systemis built from the ground up forultimate scalability. Regardless ofyour application’s size, the DeltaVPage 2–DeltaV System Overviewsystem keeps the same look andfeel. This reduces administrationand training costs, and optimizesboth initial investment and futureexpansions.From bench top, to pilot plant, tofull production; from 25 I/O pointsto over 1 million, your systemadapts to meet your needs. Sameoperations experience. Samemaintenance experience. Samesystem, scaled to fit. Easy.wireless–you can add and beginusing the information all nativelyand with far less engineering,design, and field work.You choose the I/O you need, wemake it easy. I/O on Demand–yourI/O, any type, anytime, anywhere.
Advanced technologies that are easy to use and maintain.Plant availability at peakperformance, that’s really theultimate goal of any automationsystem. Keeping the facilityrunning in a safe and securemanner, while optimizing theproduction, is what the DeltaVsystem with AMS Suite: IntelligentDevice Manager is all about.All the predictive power of smartdevices is combined with the latestadvanced control technologies toprovide the ultimate in embeddedintelligent control. Whether it’sthe latest in virtualization,predictive device alerts, adaptivetuning, or model predictivecontrol–you have the power ofembedded intelligent controlwithin an integrated system that’seasy to use and maintain.Delivering the power of PlantWeb to every installation.The DeltaV system has thecommissioning power of AMSDevice Manager included. Thiscombination connects youroperations with the predictiveintelligence in smart devices–forgreater availability.The inherent integration of theDeltaV system extends to batch,advanced control, changemanagement, engineering tools,diagnostics, simulation, and eventand continuous historian.Emerson provides solutions thatintegrate with your plant systemsabove, below, and in parallel withthe DeltaV system. And, it is tightlyintegrated with:n SyncadeTM suite which providesoperations managementn AMS Suite which providespredictive maintenancen DeltaV SISTM system whichprovides an integrated yetseparate safety systemn Integrated machinerymonitoring.Designed specifically for your process control applications.Over the last ten years, commercialoff-the-shelf technologies (COTS)have provided tremendousincreases in functionality and costadvantages. The DeltaV systemwas the first such system on themarket, and continues to provideopen, proven products to itsprocess manufacturers.However, while COTS have givenmany advantages, it has also comewith expensive administration andlife-cycle cost requirements. Abetter approach is to takeadvantage of the cost benefits andopen standards of COTS, but toadd functionality that allows theequipment to function more likeother parts of the system–plugand-play, full lifecycle supportwithout upgrades, built-in security,etc. We call this balance “built forpurpose”, and the DeltaV system isthe first automation system toaddress this critical need in manyof the most important facets of thesystem.Page 3–DeltaV System Overview

I/O on DemandUltimate ScalabilityEmbeddedIntelligent ControlFlexibility to give you the I/O you want, when you want it, where you want it.The DeltaV system’s uniqueflexible field architecture deliversI/O on demand–providing the I/Oyou want, when you want it, whereyou want it. It is flexible becauseyou can now decouple the processdesign from the I/O infrastructuredesign, to easily incorporate lateprocess changes into theautomation system.Electronic Marshallingmade easyElectronic Marshalling makesdesign easier and more forgiving,because any input value can beread by any DeltaV controllerregardless of where the wiringis landed.DeltaV Electronic Marshallingeliminates the complexityassociated with marshalling fieldwiring in a control system.Electricians can terminate the fieldwires on terminal strips in thesame way they have in the past,but the cross-wiring from themarshalling panel to I/O cards hasbeen eliminated. This greatlysimplifies control cabinet design,installation, and maintenance.disconnect eliminates the worryover accidentally induced faultsduring hot cutovers andmaintenance.Increased robustnessTroubleshooting of installationissues can be done on a channelby-channel basis, becauseproblems are isolated to a singlechannel–providing increasedrobustness.Because each analog CHARMcomes fully equipped with theability to read HART v7 data,intelligent field devices can bemonitored and quickly diagnosedaround the clock. In addition HARTdata access is quicker with CHARMsthan with traditional I/O cards.Redundancy ensures reliability:n Redundant CHARM I/O cardn Redundant communicationsbetween CHARMS and theCHARM I/O cardn Redundant power betweenCHARM I/O card to each CHARMn Redundant network communications between CHARMI/O cards and controllers.Electronic MarshallingInstallation of ElectronicMarshalling is intuitive and easy,because it is similar to existingmethods for terminating fieldwiring. No special training orexpertise is needed to terminatewiring on the terminal blocks. Anintegrated “knife-edge”Page 6–DeltaV System OverviewTight project schedules withchanging requirements duringdesign and implementation are away of life. DeltaV ElectronicMarshalling lets you land fieldcabling wherever you want,regardless of signal type orcontrol strategy.With Electronic Marshalling, eachterminal block has a channelcharacterization module, orCHARM, which includes signalcharacterization for different typesof I/O. Field wiring of any signaltype can be terminated anywhereand characterized by the variousCHARMs. A digital communicationbus runs along the terminal strip tosend device signal information tothe top, the redundant CHARM I/Ocard, a redundant 96 channelbased multipurpose I/O card,where I/O conditioning iscompleted.CHARM Terminal BlockCHARM

The I/Osubsystem connects intrinsicallysafe field circuits and field devicesinto FM Class I, Division 1, Zone 1,and Zone 0 hazardous areas formost standard analog input,discrete input and discreteoutput applications.With the addition of IntrinsicallySafe CHARMs to the S-seriesElectronic Marshalling concept,field wiring to hazardous areas iseven easier. Field devices located inFM Class I, Division 1, ATEX orIECEx Zone 1 or Zone 0 hazardousareas can now directly beconnected to the flexible IS AI andIS AO CHARMs, IS DI NAMUR and ISDO as well to IS RTD and ISTC CHARMs.Late project changes?No problem.Every project has late changes that can havesignificant impact on cost and schedule. Makingthese late changes is now easier, because newfield wiring can be added to cabinets at any timewith no impact on the system architecture.Page 7–DeltaV System Overview
