Real-time application platform for optimization of process operations

04/07/2006


PAS has released PlantState Suite 5.0, which has been enhanced to include a number of embedded capabilities that, until now, have only been available as separate products from various vendors.
Highlights of the key capabilities embedded in Suite 5.0 include:

  • Event Historian for collection of events from process monitoring and control systems, including process alarms, operator logbook entries, or any other event;

  • OPC Server for the transfer of data as collected via the PlantState system interfaces to other applications and/or systems using the OPC protocol;

  • APC Studio for development of real-time calculations and advanced control strategies, including simulation and deployment testing; and

  • APC Online to provide real-time I/O from PlantState applications to various distributed control systems, programmable logic controllers and other plant-floor devices.

PlantState now supports a broader range of real-time performance improvement applications:

  • Advanced process control of linear and non-linear systems;

  • Alarm management for a wide range of process control systems;

  • Control loop monitoring and controller tuning of field control devices; and

  • User-defined key performance indicator (KPI) calculation and reporting.
