operation keyboard

One-second data refresh on windows

The data displayed on HIS are collected in the manner of event driven, i.e., HIS starts to collect the data only when the corresponding window is called up. Thus only the dynamic data in the currently displayed windows need to be refreshed. The load of HIS for data sampling is reduced and the one-second refresh rate for the dynamic data on the windows is guaranteed.

Multiple Monitor Support

The HIS supports the use of multiple monitors, meaning that more windows can be displayed at the same time and enabling process variations and even alarms to be handled more promptly. This ability to display increased amounts of data at the operator console improves operation efficiency. CENTUM CS 3000 R3 supports up to four monitors which can be stacked vertically or positioned side by side and a mouse can move over those four screens. A large-size monitor can also be used.

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

As for a controller used in a distributed control system (DCS) shown in Figure 1, covering as many applications as possible with a single controller will bring cost reduction effects such as easy engineering and a small controller installation area. Therefore, the controller is required to process large amounts of data more quickly.

Overview:

The power generation facility in a pulp and paper plant is comprised of units, each of which is composed of a boiler, a turbine, a generator, and auxiliary equipment, and these pieces of equipment were traditionally controlled on a unit/equipment basis. This paper presents an application of CENTUM, Yokogawa's distributed control system (DCS) that integrates the independent control systems of such power generation facilities to achieve labor saving through operations via CRT display and keyboard.

Industries:
Overview:

As more fieldbus devices are made practicable, demand is increasing for a distributed control system (DCS) which integrates fieldbus devices in its engineering, operation, and monitoring environments. Conventionally, control has been implemented by the dual-redundant CPUs and control bus within a DCS; however, sufficient reliability must be ensured even when it is distributed over field networks.

Overview:

In recent years it has become increasingly common for plants to be provided not only with the control layer of a production control system (DCS, etc.), but also with the protection layer of a safety instrumented system (SIS) to reduce the risk of industrial accidents. The safety instrumented system is indispensable for avoiding risks to a plant failure.

Overview:

The recent increase of devices enabled for a field network such as the FOUNDATION™ Fieldbus is phenomenal. This has been amplifying a requirement for distributed control systems (DCSs) to be capable of constituting a more pliant and efficient production control system by means of flexible connections to field networks in addition to traditional 4 to 20 mA signals.

Overview:

The requirements for water supply and sewage services are becoming increasingly strict, such as consolidation of facilities, operational efficiency, lower cost, and information transparency due to stagnant demand. There is also demand for greater use of information technologies (IT), encouraged by the government's e-Japan strategy.

Overview:

The environment surrounding process control systems has changed dramatically as the performance of personal computers improves and the Windows operating system advances, there has been a move towards the trend of open architecture. As we are already aware, in addition to the traditional high reliability level and the unique operability there has been an increase in demand for the interoperability of human- machine interfaces (HMI), which are responsible for the operation and monitoring of our distributed control system (DCS).

Yokogawa Technical Report
Overview:

Yokogawa's business involvement in the pulp and paper industry started to grow in the 1970s after the in-house development and to establish the sales force for stand-alone Basis Weight Sensor with an analog recorder for a fixed point measurement. This involvement has expanded exponentially in the Asian region, particularly in the Japanese market over the past 35 years.

Overview:

In process control it is not uncommon for systems to be affected by dead times, due to material transfer times. This is evident typically in pipelines. A fluid of density ρ and flow rate w in a section of pipe A the length of d takes the amount of time τ = ρAd/w to cover the whole distance (see Figure 1).

Overview:

Industrial automation (IA) systems and products, which utilize measurement, control and information technologies, are used across the world as fundamental infrastructure for achieving safe, stable and highly efficient plant operation.
