Yokogawa Electric Corp. has released the R4.01 version 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 enhanced with a function that provides statistical data that is needed to identify the overall status of the devices in a plant. Through the provision of information that is essential for efficient maintenance and optimum operations, this new PRM will help to ensure plant safety.
Manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to improve maintenance efficiency by using software tools such as PRM that can centrally manage large amounts of maintenance information, and other types of data, from plant monitoring and control devices, to manufacturing equipment, and to quickly identify device failures that could interfere with the safe operation of plants. To better meet such needs, Yokogawa has reinforced the functions of PRM.
With PRM R3.31, users have been able to access information needed to identify the operating status of individual devices. To address the need for a solution that would yield insights into the overall condition of the devices installed in a plant, Yokogawa has added a new status reporting function to R4.01. A new function that improves maintenance efficiency has also been added.
Major target markets include the oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, and wastewater treatment industries.
Applications include field device maintenance and start up, plant operation support.
