Advant Controller 450 is the perfect choice when you want to expand your process while limiting engineering costs and ensuring high production efficiency. It is the obvious evolution path from MasterPiece 200, to extend your plants life cycle. Its high processing capacity and wide-ranging capabilities fits for demanding applications and can be fully integrated with System 800xA.
With AC 450 you will have a proven equipment with high functionality, interoperability and performance. It supports a wide range of communication protocols such as; MODBUS, Profibus, Masterbus 300/300E, Advant Fieldbus 100 etc. making it easy to design an optimal control system architecture for every application.
To achieve the highest possible availability, AC 450 can be equipped with redundancy for communication, power supplies, CPUs and I/O boards. It supports the modular S800 I/O system, including field devices supporting HART data, and up to five S100 I/O racks. The S100 I/O racks can be distributed via redundant fiber networks. Support for S400 I/O is included, which among many other features, makes the Advant Controller 450 the best choice when upgrading installed MasterPiece 200 controllers.
Maximize your productivity and be prepared for easy integration of proven technology. AC 450 meets users‘ requirement of maximum plant availability.
Advant Controller 450 life cycle status
The AC 450 controller hardware is in the Active life cycle phase and continuously updated with corrections. It is planned to stay as such until minimum 2020, with guaranteed parts support until minimum 2030.
For earlier AC 450*1.x, the first generation, we offer two solutions:
- replace existing controller with AC450*2.x and the PM511 CPU, the second generation within the active life cycle phase.
- evolve to AC 800M controllers: Evolution from Advant Controller 450 to AC 800M is supported by communication modules for S100 I/O, MasterBus 300 communication, Modbus as well as AF100 Data set communication. The details are described on the AC 800M page.
