DeltaV DCS System Difference

Improve your plant performance

The DeltaV Distributed Control System (DCS) helps you improve your operations by harnessing today’s predictive technologies in an easy, intuitive, and interoperable way to connect your people, processes, and production.


  I/O on Demand – What you want, when you want it, where you want it.

Whatever I/O type you need–traditionally wired I/O, FOUNDATION fieldbus, Profibus DP, DeviceNet, ASi–bus, or redundant wireless–you can add and begin using the information natively with less engineering, design, and field work than ever before. Revolutionary electronic marshalling lets you land field cabling wherever you want, regardless of signal type with characterization modules (CHARMs), which allow field wiring of any signal type to be terminated anywhere.

  Ultimate Scalability – Inherent functionality regardless of size.

From 25 to over 1 million I/O, The DeltaV architecture scales to fit your operation as it grows. Technologies like Wireless HART and its self organizing wireless mesh network help you scale your instrumentation device by device, and area by area within your plant. DeltaV Zones segment the systems to ensure flexible operation and expansion with enhanced system performance. And with common hardware components, engineering tools, operations and maintenance applications, you spend less on training and spare parts inventory, with easier operations. Learn more


  Embedded Intelligent Control – Specialized expertise is not required.

From the predictive intelligence derived from smart field devices, the DeltaV system takes intelligent control the next step forward by embedding learning algorithms directly into the system to locate hidden variability and under–performing loops, monitor performance against model–based benchmarks, identify and diagnose problems such as faulty valves, The end result: fewer upsets and unplanned shutdowns, increased availability and throughput with reduced variability. A full array of applications including enhanced PID control, automatic variability inspection, tuning, fuzzy logic control, model predictive control, and neural networks is available to drag–and–drop and run invisibly—with no costly outside expert consultation and maintenance.

  Inherently Integrated – Delivering the power of PlantWeb to every installation.

Intuitive, fast, drag–and–drop engineering for control, batch, and safety strategies, along with process graphics, history, events and change management, all share a single global database and eliminate data mapping. DeltaV Configuration Audit Trail provides powerful change management, tracking changes and managing revision information for any item in the configuration database. Easy, user–login–based security prevents unauthorized system changes, and AMS Suite seamlessly integrates with the system to continually monitor critical production assets. Human–Centered Design (HCD) in the DeltaV operator interface provides situational awareness and faster decision–making, The open, interoperable standards–based DeltaV system integrates seamlessly with third party communication technologies like OPC, Modbus TCP and Ethernet IP. And to complete the integrated process automation continuum, Syncade™ Suites provides comprehensive operations management for improved efficiency and increased production Learn more


  Built for Purpose – Designed specifically for your process control applications.

Designed for game–changing functionality increases and cost–savings, the DeltaV system pioneered the use of commercial off–the–shelf technologies (COTS). On top of COTS’s open system cost–benefits advantages, the DeltaV system builds purpose–specific functionalities, like plug–and–play capability, full life cycle support and integrated security. Ethernet network switches and security devices are fully preconfigured with alerts and provide diagnostics information integrated with other maintenance alerts so your maintenance staff–not your IT staff–can quickly respond. AMS Suite integrates with the DeltaV software to provide common security and confidence in the operation of your field assets. DeltaV Smart Switches come completely preconfigured to plug–and–play and you can lock down unused switch ports for security with a single mouse click. Built for process control, built for security, built for batch, built for you; the DeltaV system’s easy–to–use engineering brings simplicity and flexibility to your most demanding applications.
