Reduce downtime related to software upgrades

It is now easier to update 800xA installations. System 800xA 6.1.1 supports both Windows 2016 and Windows 2019 LTS simultaneously. This, combined with System 800xA’s flexible installer capabilities, allows system owners already at version 6 to update their systems by section, over time, and online, greatly reducing the time and effort typically required.

Provide peace of mind through enhanced security

The new version has been approved for use with McAfee Endpoint Security applications, such as Application Control. Additionally, System 800xA’s most popular process and safety controllers have achieved ISA secure compliance.

Higher flexibility and lower footprint with Select I/O enhancements

Select I/O now offers single-mode fiber optic Ethernet adapters, signal conditioning modules (SCMs) with built-in intrinsically safe barriers for both process and safety applications, and channel redundancy.

These additions reduce the amount of ancillary hardware needed to meet various project requirements, help to reduce the impact of late changes and keep cabinet footprint to a minimum.

Faster commissioning

The Ethernet I/O Field Kit, with xStream Commissioning, facilitates smooth commissioning of greenfield projects and brownfield expansions.

Field instrument technicians can configure and commission S800 on Ethernet and Select I/O clusters with a single laptop - without the need for any controller or I/O communications hardware. Automated loop checks can be performed simultaneously on multiple smart devices, reducing required manhours by more than 90%.
