while operators have quick and easy access to information in other parts of the system. The integration of control system and safety system has many benefits. resulting in fewer errors. the same communications system.Advant OCS Integration Since the Safeguard 400 Series controllers are based on the Advant Controller 410. Operators and operational staff work on a system that is uniform both technically and operationally. they can be fully integrated into an existing Advant OCS (Open Control System). Operator stations and printers can be dedicated to safety functions. thereby contributing to an improved flow of information. the same user interface and related hardware. Safeguard can function as an integral part of the DCS. Using the same Advant workstations. including improved information handling and a better instinctive overview of the facility 7 .
command entry. which covers all features needed for configuration and programming of the Advant OCS system. unless other functions are explicitly accessed. event and alarm handling. A cause & effect matrix is a presentation of the relation between a set of process inputs and the actions they trigger. Designing and documenting cause & effect matrices is essential to industrial safety. Because this function is automatic. The Advant Engineering Workplace (UNIX or NT based) is the standard engineering and configuration platform for Advant OCS. The Advant Station 500 Information Management Station is utilized for processing of process data. as well as the status of all safety-related equipment.
