Valmet DNA automation system

Valmet DNA is a distributed control system (DCS) and information platform for demanding process automation applications. It combines all controls for the process, machine, quality, supervisory, drive, as well as optimizations, and mechanical condition monitoring into a single platform. Valmet DNA is based on the knowledge of developing distributed control systems for over 40 years.

Safety Instrumented Systems and batch solutions are in a Valmet DNA
scope. Valmet DNA can be used also as a PLC, Soft PLC, or SCADA system. It ranges from a micro-sized system, including the world’s smallest fully functional user interface, to mill- and plant-wide systems that support global organizations.
