These unique features make maintenance predictive rather than reactive, and this can drastically reduce maintenance costs within a highly available process application.
Embracing this new kind of PLC offer will certainly help prevent your processes from slipping into the darkness of unplanned downtime…

Innovative high availability solutions

  1. 1. Innovative High Availability Solutions
  2. 2. The Concept of Availability • For each electronic device, there is: • An MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) – Statistical value representing the failure rate of the component • A lifetime – Composed of 3 phases: early mortality / useful life / wear out • Probability of failure and availability ratio • Calculation based on MTBF during the useful life only – Consequences: Probability of failure calculation no longer true when device ages Lifetime “bathtub” curve Page 2 Time
  3. 3. • Dynamic Theoretical Lifetime • Real time calculated vs static calculation based on MTBF • Patented algorithm based on current load, usage, temperature, etc… • Value Proposal: OPEX Reduction • Smart device that can tell when maintenance is needed • Enable predictive maintenance instead or reactive maintenance Page 3 Hi there! It’s maintenance time! Smartest Power Supply
  4. 4. Standard Solution 2 power supplies sharing workload Result: Same ageing, with a risk that the second power supply won’t be able to take 100% of the load for a long time if the first one fails Page 4 Modicon M580 Solution 1 power supply active at a time Result: Ensuring second power supply takes over the full load for a longer time when the first one fails 0 100 Load(%) Time PS1 PS2 0 100 Load(%) Time PS1 PS2 ACT SEC Load Sharing Technology
