The System Controller (SYSCON2.1) is a combination of two interconnected boards that
together function as the control processor and motherboard for the Maxum analyzer.
The SYSCON2.1 consists of two boards, the Communication and Analytical Control (CAC3)
board and the SYSCON Interface Board (SIB3). The CAC3 contains the processor and
memory functions for the SYSCON2.1 as well as control of external Ethernet communications
(via the Ethernet Switch Board). The CAC3 is mounted on and operates in conjunction with
the SIB3. With the exception of external Ethernet, the SIB3 contains all interfaces provided by
The CAC3 on the SYSCON2.1 stores the analyzer application database, combines all data
results, and performs additional high-level data processing and calculations. All network
communications, maintenance panel and analyzer functions are also coordinated by the
SYSCON2.1. The SYSCON2.1 provides communication between the Controller Board, I/O
Boards and the EC operating modules.
More information about the SYSCON can be found in the System Controller version 2
(SYSCON2.1) Installation Manual (Siemens part number A5E02643617001).
