Austin, TX - Emerson Process Management announced Nov. 13th Tembec Paper (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) recently used new PlantWeb technologies and services to migrate over 1,000 instrument signals from our existing Bailey system to a DeltaV system in about one hour.

To facilitate easy, fast, and convenient conversion of legacy systems, the new Emerson products and services enable migration from competitive systems to the PlantWeb architecture using the DeltaV digital automation system.

Tembec, an integrated $3.5 billion Canadian forest products producer with over 50 manufacturing sites in the United States and Canada, provides an example of a speedy transition.

''We had a paper mill turnaround, and needed to take our boiler house down and get it back up in a very short period of time. We engineered the DeltaV system, and pre-wired it to a serial termination cable. To change over, all we had to do was unplug the existing cables to our I/O and plug in the DeltaV system. We commissioned all the points and had the system back on line in about an hour,'' says Denny Efferson, process control engineer at Tembec Paper.

PlantWeb migration tools and services are said to support migration from:

  • ABB (Bailey)-INFI90/NET90;

  • Honeywell-TDC3000/TDC2000;

  • GSE-D/3;

  • Foxboro (Invensys)-SPEC200, Spectrum, I/A;

  • Siemens-Teleperm;

  • Siemens/Moore-APACS;

  • ABB (Taylor)-MOD300;

  • Yokogawa;

  • GE Fanuc-Genius I/O;

  • Rockwell/Allen-Bradley 1771 Remote I/O; and

  • Schneider/Modicon S908, Quantum 800 Series I/O.

Emerson's new migration products for field connection, control, and operator interface, combined with its simulation and training services, help minimize process downtime for transition. Pre-engineered field connection products are said to reduce costs as much as 50 percent compared with rewiring costs, and process downtime is said to be reduced as much as 75 percent. Pre-defined drag and drop display dynamos such as pumps, valves and motors enable easy building of new displays, or services and conversion tools are available to convert existing graphics. Off-line simulation enables configuration checkout and operator training prior to connecting the new, modern digital plant architecture.
