HART Interfaces

If you have smart field devices installed and you are not making full use of their capabilities, then you need Eaton MTL’s HART® connection system. Eaton MTL has solutions that provide the connections between the HART® field instruments, the control systems and the process automation maintenance software. Eaton MTL’s HART® multiplexer system provides on-line access from a PC to the HART® field devices for monitoring device performance. HART® devices may be selected for regular status monitoring and alerts to be issued if the status changes. HART® CONNECTIONS strip the HART® digital signal from the 4-20mA signal (which passes to the control system unscathed) and sends it directly to your maintenance PC. Thus giving you access to the benefits offered by the latest powerful configuration and predictive maintenance software.

Fieldbus

FOUNDATION fieldbus™ H1 provides an open, non-proprietary fieldbus network for control systems and field instruments. FOUNDATION™ H1 is intended primarily for process control, field-level interface and device integration. Foundation Fieldbus technology interconnects devices such as transmitters and actuators on a field network and supports a wide range of architectures, for both safe and hazardous area applications. Eaton MTL also provides Profibus and Modbus digital devices.

Industrial Security

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems have long been considered immune to the cyber attacks suffered by corporate information systems. The move to open standards such as Ethernet TCP/IP and web technologies has seen control systems affected by a growing number of both malicious and non-malicious network security events impacting critical infrastructure and manufacturing industries. Traditional firewalls are too complex for most security professionals to configure correctly and are even harder to set up properly on the plant floor. The Tofino™ Industrial Security Solution from MTL Instruments is much more than just a firewall. With its centrally managed, dynamic Loadable Security Modules (LSM’s) it can provide VPN encryption, Enforcer Deep Packet Inspection, Secure Asset Management and control protocol-aware security solutions tailored to specific plant floor situations. The Tofino™ Central Management Platform (CMP) will configure, monitor and manage the functions of each remote Tofino™ Appliance so that it can be automatically tuned to meet the security needs of the devices it is protecting.
