Yokogawa Electric Corp. has released version R4.01 of its Plant Resource Manager (PRM®) software tool for centrally managing large amounts of data from plant monitoring and control devices, as well as manufacturing equipment.
PRM R4.01, an upgrade to R3.31, has been significantly enhanced with a new function that provides statistical data needed to identify the overall status of the devices in a plant. This field device is for maintenance and start up as well as plant operation support.
PRM is a software package that centrally manages large amounts of status and maintenance information from plant monitoring and control devices and manufacturing equipment. The software supports field digital communication protocols (FOUNDATIONTM fieldbus, HART®, ISA100 WirelessTM, and PROFIBUS), and can be used for devices and diagnosis and adjustment software tools from other manufacturers.
The tool includes various maintenance support functions, including online functions for monitoring and diagnosing devices and equipment. It can work with the FieldMateR device management software for setting, adjusting, and managing field devices. Through FieldMate, the current device information stored in PRM can be checked in the field. The device information can also be accessed from any human interface station (HIS) linked to the CENTUM® VP integrated production control system.
