ControlSoft Inc. announces that INTUNE+ I&C INSIGHT tool for power plants is now in wide release.

First available to a small number of engineers in June of this year, I&C INSIGHT communicates diagnostics on process controllers and final elements for corrective action, thus allowing users to drill down from messages and control hierarchy view to performance indices and process trends.

Using this tool, I&C engineers and technicians can see the results of performance diagnostics on process controllers and plant floor final elements.

INSIGHT gives I&C crews the crucial ability to view and access how process variability propagates through various process areas and the control hierarchy.

Unique features of this tool

  • Performance diagnostic messages with rich context having embedded hyperlinks on the performance of process controllers and plant floor final elements
  • Process fault root-cause analysis by information drill-down using hyperlinks from diagnostic messages to relevant process performance indices and to relevant process trends focused in relevant time frames
  • Real-time status overview of control hierarchy and drill-down to performance indices from hierarchy view
  • Views of process variability propagation across control hierarchy and process areas
  • Tuning status for DCS PID controllers based on expert system pattern recognition techniques with embedded hyperlinks to process trends focused on relevant time frames
  • Easy access to the color-coded list of all poorly, fairly, and well-performing plant floor final elements
  • Customization and expansion for specific customer needs

Basic features of this tool

  • Browser-based remote access to real-time control valves and diagnostic events of process controllers.
  • Diagnostics message center with filtering and archiving capability
  • View of DCS control hierarchy of all PID controllers reflecting cascading relationships of controllers color-coded for performances
  • Average error and absolute error, standard deviation of error, percent of time in various modes of operation, percent of time in various alarming states, oscillation frequency, valve stiction percent, tune status index, recognized patterns in relevant process trends for control loops and final elements
  • Date and time indexing of diagnostics message
  • Configurable time horizon for data analysis
  • Configurable set of commonly used or user-defined KPIs for controllers and final elements
  • List of available and preconfigured process trends

Compatibility & Demo & Learn More
INTUNE+ I&C INSIGHT is compatible with all PC, laptop, tablet, and smartphone devices running any OS with a JavaScript-enabled web browser (except not compatible with IE 6. 7. or 8).
