Operators and maintenance personnel can use PRM and intelligent field devices to remotely monitor the condition of plant assets and detect early signs of performance deterioration such as valve sticking and impulse line blocking of d/p based flow meters.
PRM features functions such as a device master function for maintaining an asset database and multiple views to visualize asset hierarchies according IEC 61512 through Plant, Network or Class views. The Device Patrol function uses a scheduler to periodically acquire device status information and features a status decision engine to display color coded information on all hierarchy levels. In case of a diagnostic message, the device DTM is launched to obtain detailed information and/or access device parameters.
PRM Plant Resource Manager delivers on the promise of FDT Technology; a single, protocol independent, platform for device integration and management.
