Both, the gas-fired and the electric IR systems feature field bus technology for easy integration and remote control from DCS/QCS systems as well as user-friendly operator interfaces based on standard PLC operator panels. In many instances Marsden has interfaced with our customers' DCS/QCS via Ethernet, Controlnet, etc. Typically, Marsden supplies a remote rack of I/O, within the main control panel. This rack includes a power supply, all of the necessary I/O cards, along with a network bridge module (Ethernet, Controlnet, Devicenet, etc.).
Marsden also employs customer-preferred manufacturer's control equipment to provide cleaner integration with the existing control system.
Customer seeking to deviate from a standard control set-up should advise as to what type of control system is favored.
Marsden supplies all customers with sample code and display screens so that each can program the system using their own resources, if so desired.
