Maintenance and operations support tool extended

25 April 2018

Yokogawa Electric Corporation launched version R4.01 of its Plant Resource Manager (PRM) software tool for centrally managing large amounts of data from plant monitoring and control devices as well as manufacturing equipment.

PRM R4.01, an upgrade to R3.31, includes a new function that provides statistical data to identify the overall status of devices in a plant through the provision of information essential for efficient maintenance and optimum operations, this new PRM release will, according to the company, help to ensure plant safety.

With PRM R3.31, users were able to access information needed to identify the operating status of individual devices. To address the need for a solution that would yield insights into the overall condition of the devices installed in a plant, Yokogawa added a new status reporting function to R4.01. A new function that improves maintenance efficiency has also been added.

PRM is a software package that centrally manages large amounts of status and maintenance information from plant monitoring and control devices and manufacturing equipment. It supports major field digital communication protocols (FOUNDATION fieldbus, HART, ISA100 Wireless, and PROFIBUS) and can be used for devices and diagnosis and adjustment software tools from other manufacturers. It includes various maintenance support functions, including online functions for monitoring and diagnosing devices and equipment. The solution is aimed at a variety of industries, including oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, iron and steel, pulp and paper, electric power, and wastewater treatment.
