D/3 Distributed Control System
The best investment in process control
The D/3 DCS combines rock solid Made in USA hardware, no-hassle software licensing, open connectivity, and continuous code migration to deliver the best ROI of any process automation system.
Do it all with one system
D/3 connects to and integrates data from any plant system through Ethernet protocols and OPC, and an extensive library of I/O interfaces for legacy equipment. D/3 is designed in alignment with the Open Process Automation Forum (OPAF) guidelines.
If you can think it, the D/3 can do it. Its agile Sequence and Batch Language (SABL) programming environment is built around S88 and S106 standards, so there’s no limit to the process variables you can tweak and adjust.
A platform that grows with your business
A single D/3 system can scale from 2 to 160 nodes, handle up to 50,000 I/O points, and manage hundreds of simultaneous batches and product recipes with no performance degradation. And as your system expands, islands of automation are easily integrated using our Orion devices.
Secure from the PCB to the DMZ
Our latest family of process controllers (PCM5) are built from the circuit board up to provide integral secure boot and firewall, whitelisting, and other security features -- forming a cornerstone of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy and architecture.
Easy for new users, powerful for pros
With intuitive loop configuration software, the ability to virtualize a complete system on your laptop, and a collaboration-first development environment, the D/3 allows new users to get up and running quickly—while giving pros unlimited flexibility in development.
