Vanguard S5P

Vanguard S5P® brings the latest technology to the Vanguard turbomachinery control platform.

Built upon 50 years of institutional knowledge and experience in controlling some of the most challenging turbomachinery trains in the world, Vanguard S5P has been designed to reduce total lifecycle cost, optimize production throughput, and reduce maintenance costs.

Cybersecurity and Connectivity

The CCC Vanguard S5P operating system is designed and tested to the standard of ISA/IEC 62443-4-2. The control platform provides secure connectivity with CCC supervisory systems and 3rd party systems. S5P supports MQTT Sparkplug B communication for lightweight Publish/Subscribe communication for integration with next generation of CCC operator HMI software.

Plug-in migration solution to extend lifecycle and enhance security and connectivity of your S5 Vanguard

Vanguard S5P offers a plug-in migration solution to extend lifecycle of existing S5 Vanguard control system, which were designed for support of 576 I/O points. Vanguard S5P runs CCC’s ProOS, similar to Prodigy, with an intuitive programming environment for total train control including sequencing and auxiliary system for your turbomachinery. The following IEC 61131-3 programming language standards are supported:

  • Ladder diagram (LD)
  • Function block diagram (FBD)
  • Structured text (ST)
  • Instruction list (IL)
  • Sequential function chart (SFC)

S5P Vanguard supports MQTT Sparkplug B communication – paving the way for integration with the next generation of CCC operator HMI software that leverages it. This lightweight Publish/Subscribe (Pub/Sub) protocol enables secure, bandwidth-efficient, and scalable communication that supplements the existing capabilities of your existing S5 Vanguard control system.

Enhanced Redundancy and Diagnostics

Vanguard S5P runs ProOS which improves system availability and maintenance ease-of-use.

  • Flexible switching: Modular redundancy at every level – from power supplies, to main processors, to I/O processors
  • Self-learning: Plug-and-play replacement of faulty card without the need to manually load configuration files
  • Better diagnostics: Higher-resolution archiving with Sequence of Events (SoE)
  • Extended Life Cycle: Protect your assets with updated hardware and software

Defense-in-depth for some of the most critical assets in your process

Safe, reliable, and efficient operations of turbomachinery trains is critical to process. Vanguard S5P helps you secure these assets with the following industry-leading capabilities:

  • Encrypted Communication: Prevent network sniffing of sensitive data like credentials
  • Communication Robustness: Certified for GE Digital Achilles Communications Certification Level 1 to defend against denial of service attacks.
  • Security Logs: Ensure traceability of security events
  • Hardening Options: Further harden the device optionally by disabling non-essential functions
