Also included were modern UNIX based workstations for operations and engineering. In 1996, the modular flexible remote S800 I/O was added. Additionally, remote EX S800 I/O for connection to transmitters in hazardous areas was released in the late 1990s.
In 2004, Advant MOD 300 began its next step in the evolution process with the introduction of System 800xA enabled products, providing the System 800xA for Advant MOD offering.
