ExperTune’s PlantTriage now provides real-time trending of process variables on your mobile phone. Live data from a control system is relayed to your cell phone’s browser. This feature is said to enable users to have immediate access to control-room data, even when working remotely out in the plant.
The trending tools provide immediate trends of process variables, setpoints, and controller outputs. Users can zoom, span and scale the trends to see details. Other features of the PlantTriage Control Performance Monitor are also available directly via a cell phone browser. For example, users can browse through reports and dashboards that pinpoint instrument issues, valve issues, and tuning problems.
The new tools are included in the version 10 release of ExperTune’s PlantTriage software. More details can be found at http://www.planttriage.com.
