InFusion SCADA 2.0 targets functionality and security for remote operations

New release offers RTUs for oil & gas, water & wastewater applications.

11/06/2009


At its OpsManage '09 event in Anaheim, CA (November 3-5), Invensys Operations Management unveiled its InFusion SCADA 2.0 software system. The system features Foxboro SCD2100 and SCD2200 remote terminal units for oil & gas and water & wastewater applications.

InFusion SCADA

InFusion SCADA 2.0 software system features Foxboro SCD2100 and SCD2200 remote terminal units for oil & gas and water & wastewater applications.

The InFusion SCADA 2.0 package of software components enable SCADA developers to create reusable objects and templates, as well as manage HMI display properties, data quality, equipment maintenance tagging and other functions necessary for building SCADA applications. The system also stores program components in a central repository for remote deployment to Windows-based network devices. Engineers can use this repository to build future applications, which enforces standards, preserves applications knowledge and reduces the overall engineering effort. System managers can also propagate changes to multiple computers, reducing travel and SCADA network troubleshooting costs. And as a backup to plant engineering teams, an InFusion SCADA Device Relationship Management software agent provides secure remote backup for any installed system, allowing any alterations or performance issues to be monitored and diagnosed.

The new SCD2100 and SCD2200 remote terminal units (RTUs) provide an integrated operating environment for controlling and monitoring field operations and collecting real-time data for viewing via InFusion 2.0 screens or integration with process control or other enterprise applications. Both of the new RTUs support a range of input/output configurations and device integration, including support for the HART protocol. They also support pre-programming of ISaGRAF IEC-61131 and IEC 61499 compliant function blocks, which is said to deliver faster processing and sequencing than conventional RTUs that interpret programming languages at run time. Both RTUs also include function blocks certified for oil & gas industry calculations and are available with TCP/IP or wireless connectivity.

InFusion SCADA 2.0 software components and the Foxboro SCD2100 and Foxboro SCD2200 will be available in January 2010.
