The DeltaV digital automation system helps you improve your operationsby harnessing today’s predictive technologies in an easy, intuitive, and interoperableway to connect your people, processes, and production.I/O onDemandWhat 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 redundantwireless–you can add and beginusing the information all nativelyand with far less engineering,design, and field work. You choosethe I/O you need, we make it easy.I/O on Demand–your I/O, anytype, anytime, anywhere.UltimateScalabilityInherent 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.

And, it is tightlyintegrated with: SyncadeTM suite which providesoperations management AMSTM Suite which providespredictive maintenance DeltaV SISTM system whichprovides integrated yetseparate safety Integrated machinerymonitoring.Builtfor PurposeDesigned specifically for your process control applications.Over the last ten years, commercial offthe-shelf technologies (COTS) haveprovided tremendous increases infunctionality and cost advantages toend-users of today’s automationsystems. The DeltaV system was the firstsuch system on the market, andcontinues to provide open, provenproducts to its process manufacturers.However, while COTS has given manyadvantages, it has also come withexpensive administration and life-cyclecosts requirements. A better approach isto take advantage of the cost benefitsand open standards of COTS, but to addfunctionality that allows the equipmentto function much more like other partsof the system–plug-and-play, fulllifecycle support without upgrades,built-in security, etc. We call this balance“Built for Purpose”, and the DeltaVsystem is the first automation system toaddress this critical need in many of themost important facets of the system.Page 3–DeltaV System Overview

I/O rolInherentlyIntegratedBuiltfor PurposeThe 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 MarshallingTight project schedules withchanging requirements duringdesign and implementation are away of life. DeltaV ElectronicMarshalling lets you land fieldcabling wherever you want,regardless of signal type or controlstrategy.With Electronic Marshalling, eachterminal block has a channelcharacterization module, orCHARM, which includes an A/Dconverter and associated signalcharacterization for different typesanalog and digital I/O. Field wiringof any signal type can be terminated anywhere and characterizedby the various CHARMS. A digitalcommunication bus runs along theterminal strip to send device signalinformation to the top of theredundant CHARM I/O card whereI/O conditioning is completed.Integrated CHARMS CHARM base plate snaps on rail CHARM terminal block snapsinto base Auto keying sets terminal blockwhen first CHARM is inserted CHARM secured with lockingmechanism in both operatingand “knife-edge” disconnectpositions Insertable/removable underpower in a Zone 2 environment Signal fault protection andcircuit protection built in Fault isolation built in to CHARM.CHARM I/O Carrier(fiber optic or copper ethernet connectors)CHARM I/O Card(redundant)CHARM base plate(passive rail carrying field powerand communications)CHARMS(CHARacterization Module)Marshalling CabinetPage 6–DeltaV System Overview
ServicesRedundancy ensures reliability: Redundant CHARM I/O card Redundant communicationsbetween CHARMS and theCHARM I/O card Redundant power betweenCHARM I/O card to each CHARM Redundant network communications between CHARMI/O cards and controllers.Latch secures CHARM.Marshalling made easyElectronic Marshalling makesdesign easier and more forgiving,because any input value can beread by any DeltaV controllerregardless of where the wiring islanded.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.CHARM Terminal BlockCHARMInstallation 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”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.Late changes? NoproblemEvery project has late changes thatcan have significant impact on costand schedule. Making these latechanges is now easier, becausenew field wiring can be added tocabinets at any time with noimpact on the system architecture.Process design changes often occurthroughout the life of a project. For example,after the process hazard analysis is completed,new temperature measurements might needto be added to a process vessel. This can createsignificant hardware design challenges if thecorrect I/O channel type isn’t available, or ifthere is no room for new I/O to be added. Inmost control systems this would requiresubstantial re-work to move some or all of thecontrol strategy to another controller.Because each CHARM comes fullyequipped with the ability to readHART v7 data, intelligent fielddevices can be monitored andquickly diagnosed aroundthe clock.With the unique DeltaV Electronic Marshallingsolution, implementing this change can be assimple as adding a few new CHARMS to anyexisting terminal strip, regardless of whichcontroller will use the input data.Page 7–DeltaV System Overview
