Emerson adds video to DeltaV
- Safety: Allows operators to remotely monitor hazardous areas, and enables an additional all-clear visual before the execution of a process start-up, shut-down, or turn-around
- Security: Additional eyes on the process area, remote plant areas, or site perimeter
- Productivity: Live visual of the process being controlled alongside the process measurements
- Emissions monitoring: With video monitoring for plant emissions, exact start and stop times for excursions can be identified so reporting to regulatory agencies is more accurate
Video surveillance is becoming an indispensible part of process plant safety, security and operations. Using wireless technology, mission-critical video feeds can now be delivered to the control room, office buildings and other areas in the plant in a highly flexible way that is not possible with a wired solution. Live video feeds can augment the operators control of volatile processes.
IVC offers a range of industrial video solutions that include enterprise-class camera management software and rugged IP camera hardware. For hazardous areas, IVC has developed ATEX Zones 1 and 2, Class 1 Division 1 and 2 Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ), fixed, and high megapixel cameras. IVCs software provides powerful and flexible features for viewing and controlling cameras from multiple locations, as well as sophisticated storage and automatic alarm functions.
The operator will now be able to view multiple video feeds within the context of the Operate screen, and with onscreen buttons switch cameras or manipulate the PTZ cameras view. IVCs View Station software can also be used to provide operators many additional features including video system automation, alarm management, and live and stored video viewing and control.
Emerson can provide services to install, qualify, and support these wireless offerings as well as integrate wireless products from other wireless partners, providing process manufacturers with a single point of contact for their wireless needs.
