When you have an older operating system in this fast-paced technology environment, you are often left with few options, if any, to replace an existing workstation or server. But you can confidently extend the life of an outdated system through Emerson’s Extended Computer Availability Service.
The Extended Computer Availability Service is specifically for Emerson customers with DeltaV, PROVOX, or RS3 systems running Microsoft NT or XP/Server 2003 Operating Systems. This service is intended for spares, replacements, and minor system expansions.
Easy access to replacement workstations and servers: The configuration of any Emerson-compatible computer is tightly controlled, right down to the switch settings, BIOS, card slot assignments, hard drives, network interface cards, device driver versions, etc. With this service, you have easy access to previously owned replacement workstations and servers* that can no longer be purchased as new, and the assurance of compatibility with your DeltaV, PROVOX or RS3 system.
Flexibility with system upgrades: Plant downtime schedules and budgets can greatly affect the ability to upgrade a control system with the latest technology. The Extended Computer Availability Service provides flexibility to upgrade when the time is right for you.
Reduce risk to plant operations: A failed workstation or server with an old operating system can present a risk to plant operations. The Extended Computer Availability Service helps mitigate this risk with a variety of rebuilt workstations and servers to meet your needs.
*Available replacements are certified, rebuilt Dell Computers provided by and warrantied by a third party. The units may not be in “like new” cosmetic condition.
