We have had a chance to look under the hood, kick the tires and talk to the beta testers. We prefer to call it a modern control system, one that extends the life of our customers' investments, essentially future -proofing their technology. Grant LeSueur, director of product management, and one of the fathers of the Invensys enterprise control system, InFusion , adds, "This concept is an extension of our 'continuously current' philosophy. The modern control system does not require customers to replace everything they have on a regular cycle, but lets them continue to wring as much value as possible from existing technology while leveraging the emergence of our modern control and safety systems. The initial driver was that we were facing a substantial obsolescence issue and we had ranked this issue as a significant risk to on-going operations," he says. We needed a solution that would allow us to upgrade components we needed to, without sacrificing functionality or usability for our operators.
