Redundant Fieldbus System Switches Automatically to Backup

The TS Series TRUNKSAFE system from MooreHawke, a division of Moore Industries (North Hills, CA), maintains continuous communication between a control system and instruments on a Foundation Fieldbus H1 segment. In the event of a failure on the Fieldbus segment, TRUNKSAFE enables the control system to switch immediately and automatically to a redundant path, preventing loss of a complete segment, shutdown of equipment, or other process failures.

System Host Board Features Intel® Processor Options

The TML graphics-class system host board (SHB) from Trenton Technology (Gainesville, GA) uses the Intel® Core™ Duo, Intel Core™ Solo, and Intel Celeron® M processor options, providing a low-profile passive cooling solution and enabling small chassis designs. The Intel Core Duo processor offers dual-core technology, a 667-MHz frontside bus, 2 MB of L2 cache, and Enhanced Intel Speed- Step® technology. The Intel 945G and Intel ICH7R component combination on the TML enables dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, and a 4-GB, dual-channel DDR2-667 memory interface. Other features include dual SATA2 drive capability supported by the Intel ICH7R, featuring Intel Matrix Storage Technology that directly supports RAID 0, 1, 5, and 10 implementations. PCI Express™ (PCIe) links designed into the TML support the high-speed PCIe interface methodology between the SHB and backplane defined in the PICMG 1.3 industry standard. The TML’s graphics-class PCIe link configuration supports PCI Express graphics and video cards, including ADD2 cards. Other types of PCI Express cards, as well as 32-bit/33-MHz PCI option cards, are supported directly by the TML on a PICMG® 1.3-compatible backplane.
