New improved plant information management system
January 2018, System Integration & Control Systems Design


Yokogawa has released the ExaquantumTM R3.10. This latest version of the Exaquantum plant information management system comes with stronger security and improved compatibility through the support of OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA), the latest OPC communication standard. Manufacturers have an increasing need to store and analyse large amounts of data on temperature, pressure and other variables that can be used to improve the efficiency of plant operations. To facilitate the collection and storage of this data, there is thus a rising demand for plant information management systems (PIMS). Yokogawa has developed the Exaquantum PIMS to meet this need, and has been improving its functions. The Exaquantum PIMS can be used in a wide range of industries, including oil, refining, petrochemicals, iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, electric power, gas, pulp and paper, food, pharmaceuticals and water treatment.

With the rising use of information technology in production management and control applications, maintaining the security of plant information and control systems is a growing challenge. As companies seek to introduce the latest network technologies, security becomes an even more pressing concern. To meet such needs, Yokogawa has added support for the latest communication standard to Exaquantum R3.10 and has upgraded its security features. Enhancements include:

• Support of OPC UA for improved security and compatibility with other systems: Exaquantum R3.10 supports OPC UA (client) and thus can now securely exchange data with a wider range of data sources, including OPC UA-compliant devices such as the Yokogawa SMARTDAC+ series data acquisition systems.

• Strengthened system security: Based on a review of the vulnerabilities in the previous version of this software, the program paths (routes to files and folders) and the authorisation of access rights have been tightened in Exaquantum R3.10. Exaquantum is now less vulnerable to computer viruses and cyber attacks.

• Support of the latest operating systems: Exaquantum R3.10 supports the latest versions of operating systems and other kinds of software, including Windows Server 2016 (a server operating system), Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB (a PC operating system), and Microsoft SQL Server 2014 (a relational database management system).
