34-SAMSS-830 Programmable Logic Controller

Scope This specification together with the purchase order and appropriate specification sheets, prescribes the minimum requirements for stand-alone programmable logic controllers (PLC), as well as PLCs integrated within other process control systems, e.g., Distributed Control Systems (DCS). Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD) are covered by 34-SAMSS-623 and are excluded from this specification. This specification shall be used in conjunction with 34-SAMSS-820 "Instrumentation Control Cabinets - Indoor" for indoor PLC locations or 34-SAMSS-821 "Instrumentation Control Cabinets - Outdoor" for outdoor PLC locations except as may be superceded within this specification. Hybrid controllers are considered a special type of PLC. Hybrid controllers may be used for projects with less than 50 PID loops. P&CSD/PID/IU review and approval is required when specifying hydrid controllers for hydrocarbon facilities.

Conflicts and Deviations 2.1 Any conflicts between this specification and other applicable Saudi Aramco Materials System Specifications (SAMSSs), Engineering Standards (SAESs), Standard Drawings (SASDs), or industry standards, codes, and forms shall be resolved in writing by the Company or Buyer's Representative through the Manager, Process & Control Systems Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran. Direct all requests to deviate from this specification in writing to the Company or Buyer's Representative, who shall follow internal company procedure SAEP-302 and forward such requests to the Manager, Process & Control Systems Department of Saudi Aramco, Dhahran. The designation "Commentary" is used to label a subparagraph that contains comments that are explanatory or advisory. These comments are not mandatory, except to the extent that they explain mandatory requirements contained in this SAMSS.
