Yokogawa Releases Plant Resource Manager R3.30
Yokogawa Electric Corporation releases version R3.30 of its Plant Resource Manager (PRM) software tool for the centralized management of large amounts of data from plant monitoring and control devices and manufacturing equipment. PRM R3.30 is an upgrade to R3.20 and includes an improved management function for HART and enhancements to the navigation function.
PRM can now obtain start-up, stop, failure and other status information from Yokogawa HART7 compliant devices in almost real time via the N-IO (Network-IO) field input/output (IO) device that was developed for use with the latest version (R4.01) of the ProSafe-RS safety instrumented system. For other companies' HART5, 6 and 7 compliant devices, PRM can collect information at one-minute intervals.
Icons indicating the importance of individual devices are now displayed in the device status window of the navigation screen. If a problem occurs somewhere in the plant, operators can use this information and the self-diagnostic information displayed for the devices to make a quick, priority-based response.
The PRM maintenance alarm function issues alarms for display at CENTUM series integrated production control system HISs. With the latest version, users can specify which HIS should receive alarms from a specific device.
