Elipse Software offers you solutions for upgrading the technology in your DCS-based operational and management processes, in order to extend these systems’ lifespan and maintain their control hardware, I/Os, and field networks. In many cases, although DCSs (Distributed Control Systems) feature a very robust, reliable control structure, they can nonetheless grow into a rather quick computing obsolescence, especially with their servers, operational stations, operating systems, HMIs, and historians.
Plant managers with obsolete DCSs usually face the following issues:
We offer solutions for the following platforms:
Based in virtualized components, the solution comprises a VM with the DCS’s settings software, and other VMs responsible for data structuring and collection (Elipse E3), energy (Elipse Power), PIMS (EPM), graphical interface, and web (Elipse E3).
The data structuring and collection servers perform the following tasks:
The graphical interface and web servers communicate with the data servers and concentrate accesses of the operational stations. The substation’s operational screens, monitored by Elipse Power, can also be unified in these servers, thus facilitating the system’s operation by sharing tasks between operators and stations.
The assets’ structure is synchronized automatically with Elipse Plant Manager, allowing indicators and reports to be extracted based on datatype and not on individual tags. When objects are used in the historian, comparative reports, or reports including several instances of devices, are retrieved more easily.
