Irvine, Calif. - To help users record events and determine causes, Triconex introduced on Feb. 13 a high-speed, Windows-based event recorder, TriLogger, for the company's Tricon system. TriLogger is a trilogy of software programs for monitoring real-time operation, recording, playing back, and analyzing operating data from Tricon. A unit of Invensys Process Systems, Triconex is a leader in providing industrial safety and critical control applications.

"TriLogger is like having a thousand-line strip recorder connected to Tricon," says Jim Jacoby, Triconex's Turbomachinery product manager. "By collecting input and output data, as well as any internal variables and flags, its easy for our customers to reconstruct an event and quickly determine the cause. It collects both discrete and analog data and can retrieve data at a Tricon's scan rate."

TriLogger also features multiple event triggers; remote connections that will see the local Tricon time; configuration that is easy to modify online; multiple event file data storage formats; remote connectivity; and trend sets and trend groups that are easily changed and saved. Its three software programs include:

  • TriLogger Event, which retrieves data through Net2 of the NCM via the NetDDE server. It stores data in a circular RAM file and transfers data to a hard disk when an event trigger occurs. This program also acts as a server for any remote monitoring PCs.

  • TriLogger Playback, which enables off-line analysis and plotting of operational data in any combination, and enables data export to Excel spreadsheets.

  • TriLogger Remote, which runs on-site or remotely for viewing real-time data and manually triggering event recordings.

Triconex adds that, earlier this month, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued a Safety Evaluation Report (SER) approving Tricon Version 9 for use in 1E nuclear power plant instrument and control. The generic qualification of Tricon Version 9 is the first triple modular redundant system to be qualified by the NRC. The SER encompasses both the software and hardware, including termination panels, chassis, power supplies, main processor modules, communication modules, input/output modules and interconnecting cabling.
