More Information:


Metso DNA is an automation and information platform for process control. It combines all controls for process, machine, quality, supervisory, drive, as well as optimizations, and mechanical condition monitoring into a single platform. Also Safety Instru­mented Systems and batch solutions are in a Metso DNA scope. Metso DNA can be used also as a PLC, Soft PLC, or SCADA system. Metso DNA can range from a micro-size system - including the world's smallest fully functional user interface - to mill- and plant wide systems supporting global organizations.

The Metso DNA system architecture is designed to meet the following requirements:

  • High system reliability, achieved by using proven system components.
  • Flexible usage, achieved by operational function­ality in various locations.
  • Sophisticated analyzing and reporting needs.
  • Advanced control tasks and algorithms.

Metso DNA is based on the knowledge of developing Distributed Control Systems (DCS) over 30 years.


Field Interfaces

Metso DNA provides solutions for all kind of process interfacing needs. These solutions cover:

  • Centralized or distributed I/O solution with ACN I/O
  • Standard buses like Foundation Fieldbus, PROFIBUS, AS-i interface, OPC and CanOpen
  • Serial and Ethernet links to third-party systems
