Yokogawa Electric's version R3.30 of its plant resource manager (PRM) software tool for the centralized management of large amounts of data from plant monitoring and control devices and manufacturing equipment. PRM R3.30 is an upgrade to R3.20 and includes a management function for HART and enhancements to the navigation function. PRM is a software package that centrally manages large amounts of status and maintenance information from plant monitoring and control devices and manufacturing equipment. With PRM, users can monitor the status of their devices and perform online diagnosis via a network. In addition, PRM centrally manages maintenance information, including device ledgers, in a database, and supplies maintenance information for plant field devices and equipment to maintenance personnel. It is designed for use in industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, iron and steel, pulp and paper, electric power, and wastewater treatment. PRM can now obtain start-up, stop, failure, and other status information from Yokogawa HART7 compliant devices in almost real time via the N-IO (Network-IO) field input/output (IO) device that was developed for use with the latest version (R4.01) of the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system. It also features icons indicating the importance of individual devices are now displayed in the device status window of the navigation screen. PRM has a maintenance alarm function that issues alarms for display at Centum series integrated production control system human interface stations (HISs). Previously, alarms were issued to all HISs. Version R3.30 makes it possible to specify which HIS should receive alarms from a specific device. Individual operators now only receive alarms from those devices that they are responsible for.
