WHAT IS THE FOXBORO MIGRATION SOLUTION?
Foxboro manufactures its standard I/A Series I/O modules to be one-for-one, form-fit replacements for your legacy TDC2000 or TDC3000 I/O modules. We install these modules into your existing cabinets and racks without moving a single process wire or increasing your system footprint. They line up exactlywith your I/O points. We add our own network connectors and add new I/A Series controllers and workstations, resulting in a 100% new I/A Series system. Substantial construction costs and lengthy process downtimes caused by rewiring to new cabintets are eliminated, and installation is reduced to a matter of hours. And we warranty the entire system, including leftover legacy components, as a newsystem.
