Integrated Production Control System
CENTUM VP is the newest series of Yokogawa’s integrated production control system, so called DCS. We accumulated our over 35 years of knowledge and experience of developing and selling the DCS in the market into this new product.
CENTUM VP has more intuitive human machine interface, a large-capacity field control station to process data faster yet without failure. Pair & spare configuration of the CPU ensures non stop operations with 99.99999% (seven-9s) of high availability.
CENTUM VP is the core platform of Yokogawa’s VigilantPlant Solutions, designed to achieve the ideal plant operations. CENTUM VP brings you better information visibility, performance foresight, and operational agility.
A number of CENTUM V systems (1983~) are still in operation in industrial plants, which is a good example of our long-term commitment in customer supports. Generations of the CENTUM series production control systems can be interconnected and interactively operated, i. e. the CENTUM VP system (2008 ~) controls and monitors CENTUM-XL system (1988 ~) via bus converter. Or, bi-directional control and monitoring is established in between CENTUM CS 3000 (1998 ~) and CENTUM VP.
Yokogawa ensures the long-time support of the legacy systems and minimizes the upgrading cost by utilizing the existing systems as much as possible.
Our continuous efforts are also well recognized in the market. In April 2011, Yokogawa received the Frost & Sullivan 2011 Global Customer Value Enhancement Award in Distributed Control Systems for the Chemicals Industry.
