Invensys Foxboro I/A Series System

Foxboro I/A system

Invensys Operations Management introduced the next major evolution of its Foxboro I/A Series distributed control system. As the core DCS component of the company’s InFusion Enterprise Control System, the latest I/A Series system includes an Intelligent Marshalling solution and high-performance Foxboro Control Software and Simulation software, which reduce total cost of ownership and expand traditional DCS functionality for superior collaboration, execution and visibility across the enterprise.

With traditional control systems, field wiring must be sorted out in a marshalling cabinet before it is connected to the main I/O module terminal strips of the DCS panel. It’s an inflexible approach that often leads to expensive indirect costs. But because the I/A Series Intelligent Marshalling solution features the Universal Fieldbus Module, a per-channel, configurable I/O module that supports a variety of analog and digital signal types, it eliminates the need for marshalling entirely.

Designed to simplify engineering efforts and improve the user experience, Foxboro Control Software 3.0 embeds the company’s ArchestrA System Platform and Wonderware InTouch HMI within the Foxboro I/A Series system, applying common object technology from process control up to the business system level and out to any third-party system. This allows users to integrate all of their plant devices, systems, databases and software applications. Additionally, enhanced integration with the latest advanced software applications from Invensys, including its mobile workforce management and workflow offerings, provide more systems flexibility, adaptability and responsiveness, helping to drive lower total cost of ownership. By enabling real-time access to critical plant and business data, users are better able to balance competing strategic objectives related to controls, assets, environment & safety and people to optimize their overall business and achieve operational excellence.

The new Foxboro Control Software Simulation 3.0 offering simulates Foxboro Control Software 3.0 applications for rapid, high-quality systems checkout without the need for control hardware. Simulation capabilities include dynamic control of time, alarms and trends using the same configuration files that are used in a live I/A Series DCS. The software also provides an instant interface to the company’s SimSci-Esscor DYNSIM, Foxboro FSIM and Triconex TRISIM dynamic simulation engines, which are used to simulate plant operations, behavior and responses in conjunction with the DCS or simulated DCS.

Foxboro I/A Series Introduction

The Foxboro® I/A Series® Burner Management application solution is designed to improve plant operations, provide safe, reliable boiler startup, shutdown, and operation of the burners and associated fuel equipment in the most efficient and logical manner. Based on Foxboro’s extensive knowledge and experience in the power industry, this application solution includes the technology and engineering services necessary to maximize plant operating efficiency, safety, and availability.

The Burner Management System (BMS) is a safety system, which permits the safe startup, operation,
and shutdown of boilers. It interfaces with field devices that are primarily digital (on/off), executes
sequential control logic utilizing flame monitoring devices, pressure switches, flow switches, limit
switches to determine boiler status. Major system functions include:

1. Boiler Purge
2. Master Fuel Trip (MFT) Condition including first out
3. Fuel Tripping including first out
4. Safety Interlocking
5. Flame Detection
6. Grouped initiation of ignition and shutdown
7. Supervise and control mill and/or burner startup and shutdown sequences
8. Alarm abnormal conditions
