THE FOXBORO I/A SERIES SYSTEM

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.
