The Mark VIe Distributed Control System (DCS) is a flexible platform for multiple applications. It features high-speed, networked I/O for simplex, dual, and triple redundant systems. Industry-standard Ethernet communications are used for I/O, controllers, and supervisory interface to operator and maintenance stations and third-party systems. A common ControlST* software suite is used with the Mark VIe controls and related systems for programming, configuration, trending, and analyzing diagnostics. It provides a single source of quality, time-coherent data at the controller and plant level to understand and adjust how your plant is operating in real time
