Rockwell's AADvance Workbench 2.0 is designed for process safety applications that require a flexible architecture and features a multiuser, multicontroller environment with built-in version control and traceability. Courtesy: Rockwell AutomationRockwell Automation's AADvance Workbench 2.0 is designed to help manufacturers get process safety applications up and running faster. Ideally suited for applications that require a flexible architecture, distributed safety and mixed SIL levels, the AADvance system helps enable companies to protect people, equipment and the environment by ensuring safe and continuous operation.

The system consists of the scalable AADvance controller platform configured to any mix of SIL1 to SIL3 simplex, redundant or triplicated safety loops. Several units can be used to form a network of distributed safety controllers seamlessly integrated to monitor and control thousands of safety I/O points. A system is configured using the workbench software to suit any functional-safety or critical-control application using a standard range of modules and assemblies. It is particularly well-suited to emergency shutdowns and protection applications for fire-and-gas detection by providing a system solution with integrated and distributed fault tolerance.

The new workbench is one of the industry’s first T3-compliant software tools, as per the IEC61508 standard that generates SIL3 code certified by TÜV Rheinland. This significantly reduces the burden of validating the application.

AADvance Workbench 2.0 features a multiuser, multicontroller environment with built-in version control and traceability. A modern graphical user interface (GUI), drag-and-drop configuration, built-in simulation, and compliant IEC61131 programming languages for optimum flexibility are also featured. With the workbench, application designers can import, export or migrate projects, as well as use convenient plug-ins to monitor and manage controller status and communication protocols, along with other time-saving development tools.
