Irvine, CA— Triconex released Aug. 27 a new version of its Tristation 1131 developer's workbench, which enables engineers to create and edit programs and control function blocks for Tricon and Trident triple modular redundant (TMR) controllers. Triconex says its TMR controllers are the benchmark for safety and critical control applications in process industries, such as refining and petrochemical plants. Triconex is an operating unit of Invensys plc (London, U.K.).

One of the most common applications for Triconex controllers is in the safety-instrumented system (SIS) of petrochemical plants to protect people, the environment and plant assets. Triconex systems are also used for burner management systems, integrated turbine-compressor control, and integrated turbine-generator control. Triconex controllers are also implemented for fire and gas protection.

Tristation 1131 version 4 offers a significantly improved graphical user interface, organized with familiar Windows folder tabs, such as applications, configurations and projects. Users will find the new project navigation tree feature to be helpful for moving quickly within a project.

Version 4 also enables direct access to tag names by a control program and includes an efficient 'find' function to quickly locate any element and its dependencies in a project. An optional Cause and Effect Matrix Programming Language (CEMPLE) editor is available. Version 4 also includes an automatic upgrade feature for projects configured with any earlier version of Tristation 1131.

'Over the years, our customers have created many thousands of control applications using Tristation software,' said Tracey Sledge, Triconex’s VP and general manager. 'The need to create and validate complex control applications quickly has never been greater. Version 4 is our response to that need, and it is by far the most significant upgrade ever to the Tristation toolset.'
