July 2, 2020 - Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the development and July 1 release of the PRM Commissioning Support Package R1.02, an OpreX Asset Management and Integrity family solution that is used to perform plant commissioning and periodic maintenance.
The PRM Commissioning Support Package R1.02 uses field digital technology to improve efficiency in commissioning and periodic maintenance. With this upgrade to PRM Commissioning Support Package R1.01, support for Windows 10 and a new function that improves work efficiency have been added.
Yokogawa’s PRM Commissioning Support Package makes use of field digital technology to improve efficiency with plant commissioning by automating loop checks and facilitating the checking of connections between devices. Manual loop checks are labor intensive as they require all installed field devices to be individually operated.
With this latest upgrade to the PRM Commissioning Support Package, Yokogawa has enhanced its functionality to meet the need for further reductions in plant commissioning and periodic maintenance time, and the need for support of the latest operating systems.
A new function for the early detection of field device connection errors has been added. By automatically comparing the tag information defined in the control system/safety instrumented system engineering environment with the tag information set for each field device, this quickly and efficiently detects device connection errors.
Support for the latest operating systems has been added: For PCs, Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB 64-bit are now supported; for servers, Windows Server 2016 Standard 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit are now supported.
This package facilitates plant commissioning and periodic maintenance tasks. For connections between FOUNDATION Fieldbus and HART field devices and Yokogawa’s CENTUM VP integrated production control system and ProSafe-RS safety integrated system, it improves work efficiency by performing connection checks, range checks, linearization checks, and loop checks in simulated output mode, and also generates work reports.
