Yokogawa Receives SICE Award for FlowNavigator

Nov. 8, 2018
Advanced flow configuration tool uses IIoT technologies like FDT2

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that it has received a Technology Award from the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE)*1for its achievements in the development of an IIoT-enabled flow configuration tool. The Technology Award is in the highest rank of awards conferred by SICE.

  • Award subject

Development of a flow configuration tool that uses IIoT technologies for asset management

  • Reason for winning

Yokogawa’s FlowNavigator is a software tool that is used to configure the flow parameters for multivariable transmitters and vortex flowmeters and thereby ensure the precise measurement of mass flow. With its support of the latest FDT standard (FDT2.0), this software allows users to monitor the status of their instruments on a smartphone or an Ethernet-enabled device from anywhere in a plant and at any time. Compatibility between the FDT 2.0 and OPC UA industrial standards allows the integration of FlowNavigator data with data from manufacturing execution systems (MES), enterprise resource planning (ERP) packages, and other software. For its achievement in developing key technologies for an asset management tool that makes full use of industrial IoT (IIoT) to measure mass flow, Yokogawa was given the Technology Award.

*1 The Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE) was founded in 1961 in Japan to promote collaboration among scientists and engineers from various fields in areas as measurement, control, and information systems, which has supported advanced academic research in Japan.
