Since 2000, the Series 5 Vanguard has been the industry standard for precision turbomachinery control. Now, with the introduction of the Vanguard S5P, your Vanguard system can provide decades of additional service. Vanguard S5P provides all the benefits and functionality of Prodigy using your existing Vanguard hardware, such as advanced control applications (anti-surge controls and load-sharing, gas and steam turbines, and extraction). A Windows-based TrainTools® package also comes standard with the Vanguard S5P to provide a comprehensive interface for plant operating, programming, and project engineering.
In addition, the Vanguard S5P provides Achilles Level 1 certification for robust cybersecurity and secure communications. This third-party recognition provides assurance that your Vanguard S5P system meets high standards for keeping your facility safe from casual or coincidental violations of security.
Vanguard S5P provides full system integration for all your turbomachinery needs. With its ability to link to your DCS, Pi® data system and auxiliary equipment, you have full monitoring capabilities for total train control.
In addition to supporting up to 576 I/O points, Vanguard can be programmed to run custom logic applications. This eliminates the need to have a separate PLC for sequencing and auxiliary control purposes, simplifying the solution architecture and integration work. The following IEC 61131-3 programming language standards are supported:
Vanguard also has advanced functionality that improves system availability and maintenance ease-of-use.
