Emerson introduces new alert optimization capabilities and mobile device health dashboards in the latest version of AMS Device Manager. Out-of-the box alert filtering templates created using human-centered design principles provide the potential for as much as a 60% reduction in unnecessary alerts coming from intelligent field devices, according to the company. Personnel-based alert filtering and a streamlined user interface help users to quickly identify, isolate and diagnose health and calibration issues with field devices.
Engineers and technicians are frequently inundated with multiple device alerts, often stemming from a single issue within a device. The newest version of AMS Device Manager resolves the problem of nuisance alerts with pre-defined configuration templates that filter out all alerts tangential to the core problem, leaving only meaningful, actionable notifications. Containing all relevant details, the new alerts will help engineers create work orders and build part lists for field technicians to perform maintenance.
The release also delivers the new AMS Device View web interface, an intuitive browser-based display with mobile-friendly dashboards. The web interface allows users to view device health and calibration status from a wide range of devices—both on and off the plant floor.
