Today, complex demands are made on vital processor systems as core components in control and safety technology, such as automatic train control and electronic interlocking, which call for safety integrity level (SIL) 4. To fulfil these tasks, we have designed the new vital processor system HVIP, HANNING & KAHL Vital Interlocking Processor.
The concepts we have elaborated consider current and future market requirements, customer wishes and modern technology. The HANNING & KAHL Public Process Data Interface (PPDI) in conjunction with modern LAN interface technology ensures future-proof realisation of process visualisation and telecontrol. Complex installations are simplified by division into control segments with high availability. An adequate number of interfaces and data services has been defined and developed. Standard peripheral equipment can be connected via a special BUS.
The HANNING & KAHL Control Panel HCP is an autarkic monitoring and control unit. Sixteen output signals can be activated in dependence on the status of the 16 digital input signals. Two RS232 interfaces are also available. The control panel has 3 rack units and 30 HP by way of electronic inserts and can be deployed in a rack. There are four keys below the easily read information display can be freely function-programmed within the sope of the functional features of the HCP.
