Using PCS 7/TM-EA with PCS 7 H and F systems

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Can PCS 7/TM-EA be used with H and F systems of PCS 7?

Following configurations have to be distinguished:

  • singular H or F CPU
    PCS 7/TM-EA can be used with a singular H and F CPU without problems.
  • redundant H or F CPUs in one rack
    Using PCS 7/TM-EA with redundant H and F CPUs in the same rack is not possible, as no switching of the Teleperm M I/O bus has been realized.
  • redundant H or F CPUs in separate cabinets
    It looks differently for redundant H and F CPUs which were not installed in the same rack but in separate cabinets, i.e. with separated I/O peripherals.
    This configuration has not been tested and released.
    If this configuration shall be used please ask the Technical Support.
