  •     In-Core Monitoring Systems (SVRK)
  •     Radiation Monitoring Systems (RMS)
  •     Turbine Generator Monitoring Systems (TGMS)
  •     Clock Sync Systems (CSS)
  •     Diagnostics Systems
  •     Automated Chemistry Control Systems (ACCS)
  •     Simulators and Software Development Systems

I&C systems built by Westron are based on the most advanced industrial hardware and software platforms and technologies, including own platforms developed by Westron, Westinghouse, Emerson, ABB platforms and platforms of other well known companies.

I&C System and Functional Design.
I&C Hardware and Software Platforms

The most advanced hardware and software platforms employed by Westron allow to develop versatile I&C systems to satisfy all demands of the Customers.

Westron provides the design and manufacture of the advanced hardware and various electronic devices that may be applied for the development of a wide range of industrial I&C systems. Effective base software provides hardware integration into the system, system configuration and other I&C universal functions. In the process of system design and checkout powerful facilities for system automated design, verification and validation are applied.

"Vulcan" hardware ("Vulcan" Hardware Technical Requirements AUIC.460600.001) and "Vulcan-M" hardware ("Vulcan-M" Hardware Technical Requirements AUIC.460800.002) manufactured by Westron have passed successfully all the required tests and hold Certificates of Compliance to the requirements of the applicable safety standards of Ukraine and Russia.

While "Vulkan-M" hardware designing, Westron effectively applies years of experience and practices gained in industrial I&C design as well as the advanced tendencies in electronics and the up-to-date approaches in system design. We paid close attention to minimization of cost of the systems based on "Vulkan-M" platform and to improvement of the systems performance.

"Vulcan" and "Vulcan-M" platforms are designed for the development of I&C systems of various configurations, including redundant (fault tolerant) systems for industrial I&C systems (for NPPs, thermal power plants, chemical enterprises, etc.).
Design and Manufacture of Industrial I&C Electronic Hardware

All electronic devices developed by Westron offer high level of performance and enable design of industrial advanced Monitoring and Control Systems feature excellent performance to fully comply with all the requirements of the regulatory documents.

Westron has developed and manufactured the following base equipment:

  •     I&C low level controllers
  •     System upper level workstations, including workstations for operators and maintenance personnel of industrial enterprises and Computation, History and Log Servers
  •     I&C network equipment
  •     I&C systems clock equipment
  •     Power supplies
  •     Electronic hardware cabinets
  •     Electronic modules, devices and instruments for design of specific systems providing interface with the equipment and I&C systems being currently in operation

Development of I&C System and Application Software

I&C systems efficiency, reliability, functional capabilities and possibility to tailor basic software and hardware to the requirements of the specific system are provided greatly by the software.

Powerful and effective software platforms (base software) that Westron applies for its activities ensure the following:

  •     I&C systems operation in rigid real time
  •     Effective application of I&C hardware in redundant and non-redundant configurations
  •     Effective development, debugging and verification of I&C application software
