Ideal replacement for 19" rack-based legacy alarm systems

The Omni16R is an ideal replacement for rack-based legacy alarm systems. Not only is it a fast and cost-effective upgrade solution but it offers increased reliability too.

Increased Reliability

Most rack-based legacy alarm systems rely on a single central processing unit (CPU), causing complete loss of the alarm system due to a single CPU failure. The Omni16R, however, does not rely on a single CPU. Each Omni16R alarm card is a standalone 16-point alarm annunciator in its own right, with its own processor and watchdog, eliminating complete loss of the alarm system due to a single CPU failure.

The Omni16R alarm annunciator is based on the Omni16C alarm annunciator logic, repackaged into a 19in rack-mount version (up to 320 alarm points in a rack). The technology used in the Omni16R is identical to the Omni16C, which has also been Emphasis assessed for use in the UK nuclear industry.

Omni16R can replace 19in rack-mount legacy alarm systems such as Babcock Clifford & Snell, RIS MPAS90, RIS AN5100 and Robinson Reed alarm systems.

Benefits of the Omni16R

  • Emphasis assessed for use in the UK nuclear industry
  • IEC61580 SIL 1 assessed
  • Proven upgrade path for Babcock Clifford & Snell, RIS MPAS90, AN5100 and Robinson Reed annunciator logic
  • Dual powered with no master CPU (each 16 channel card has its own processor and watchdog eliminating complete loss of the alarm system due to a single CPU failure)
  • 320 alarm points per 3U rack
  • Up to 960 alarm points in a single system
  • Capable of driving all types of LED and bulb annunciator displays
  • Whole range of communications options available including Ethernet, Wireless ISA100 and Modbus RS232/485
