Yokogawa releases Exaquantum R3.02

October 2016 IT in Manufacturing

Yokogawa has announced the release of an update to the Exaquantum plant information management system (PIMS). Release R3.02 provides improved web and data analysis functions that will enhance plant operations.

An ever-increasing amount of plant data is being collected, stored, and analysed to understand what is happening within a plant so that appropriate operational improvements can be made, and this is resulting in a rising need for PIMSs with advanced capabilities. In response, Yokogawa has improved Exaquantum by adding new web and data analysis functions that will assist users in gaining the insights required to enhance their plant operations.

Enhancements

1. Improved web-based functionality.

To improve visibility of significant plant events, users can add annotations to trend graphs that provide additional information, detailed analysis and links to documents and web pages that can be accessed using Exaquantum/Web. These can be shared with others, including Exaquantum/Explorer users.

To aid in the identification of relationships between data, Exaquantum/Web users can now make use of X-Y Plot controls to create trend graphs that can be used within the Internet Explorer or Safari (tablet) browsers. These graphs can be utilised for such purposes as predicting compressor surges and analysing PID loops.

2. Windows 10

Windows 10, Microsoft’s latest operating system, is supported.

3. New data analysis functions

New optional functions are available to evaluate and draw insights from the large amounts of process data, alarm and events, and other types of data collected and stored by Exaquantum PIMS. These include an ISA-18.2 and IEC 62682 compliant alarm management function, a safety management function, and a manufacturing information function.
