Concentration of Control Systems

PSIcontrol was developed for maximum productivity increase of operational network management. With this control system, a small staff can reliably and securely operate very large networks with a high number of objects even during extreme information loads. This increased efficiency is possible only by state-of-the-art application functions.

The sophisticated system technology provides the platform for the realization of the control system and its acceptance by the network management staff. The unique system-technical features are based on comprehensive network capabilities and the purposeful implementation of communication standards.

System levels with redundant components

The control system is set up in a level structure. The components of a level work in parallel. Bottlenecks of conventional, centrally organised master-slave systems are eliminated with the system architecture of PSIcontrol.

The PSI system provides the following special features:

Structural Flexibility

Maximal structural flexibility in the control system design. A PSIcontrol control system is not limited in terms of location. It is possible to sub-divide the control system architecture and to set up sub-systems in different locations. This is particularly beneficial in terms of security and redundancy.

Highest System Performance by Parallel Processing

The parallel processing provides the shortest possible system response and processing times, even during worst-case situations and extreme information throughput.

Unsurpassed Availability

Parallel processing structures can be added redundantly as needed without affecting the system performance. The PSIcontrol redundancy management handles all error situations even during occurrence of simultaneous errors or multiple errors. As long as one component on each system level remains functional, the entire system remains operational without limitations. In most of the implemented projects, availability of nearly 100% is achieved.

System virtualisation provides additional potential for savings:

Multiple sub-systems running in separate hardware components can be virtualised and run on less hardware.
