Since its inception in 1987, the Foxboro® I/A Series® system has kept a Continuously Current promise to its users – as technology and your needs evolve so will your I/A Series system. Today, the I/A Series system is continuously infused with the latest technologies, and committed to maintaining interoperability with previous generations. This assures easy upgrades and significantly reduces total cost of ownership. Modernizations can often be high cost, high risk projects with significant impact to production – serious factors that users can’t afford in today’s economy. The 100 Series FBM Upgrade program is another example of the Invensys Continuously Current philosophy, providing a cost-effective upgrade path to the I/A Series system’s latest fieldbus modules – the 200 Series FBM product line.
