Process Automation System Includes Expanded Electronic Marshalling Feature
Emerson Process Management has released a new version of its DeltaV digital process automation system. New features in DeltaV Version 12 (v12) build on the system’s ability to help users simplify complex operations for increased productivity and value.
Key features in the new release include the recently announced expansion of Emerson’s innovative electronic marshalling, combining the performance of the DeltaV safety instrumented system (SIS) with the installation flexibility and space savings of its electronic marshalling technology. This new SIS offering simplifies design, installation, wiring and commissioning of SIS projects, while at the same time increasing capacity and reducing footprint.
Based on human centered design principles, the new logic solver architecture uses electronic marshalling and characterization module technology to eliminate the need for conventional marshaling. The v12 release also includes integrated virtualization technology, which enables users to consolidate computer resources and reduce implementation and maintenance costs.
DeltaV Virtual Studio allows users to create virtual DeltaV systems from prebuilt templates and preconfigured virtual networks. The new Emerson Smart Firewall product in v12 allows users to set up a safe and secure network for the automation system, locking down the the control system network against unauthorized downloads.
