  • Overview

    Experience true operational agility and production schedule integrity throughout your system’s lifecycle with EcoStruxure™ Foxboro DCS virtualization technology.

    From the start, the ability to host multiple virtual machines on a single control processor can significantly reduce the risk associated with project delivery cycles.

    Virtualization decouples system hardware from system design, and from the geographic locations of engineering experts. Last-minute changes become much easier to implement. Virtualization technology also means software and operating systems need not be tied to specific hardware. So as your system evolves, maintenance needs and troubleshooting can be quickly addressed by Schneider Electric experts within the virtual environment.
