Yokogawa Electric Corporation has recently released Exaquantum R3.20, an enhanced version of its plant information management system (PIMS) software package in the OpreX Asset Operations and Optimization family.
Exaquantum supports the digital transformation initiatives of customers in the process industries by gathering large volumes of plant data and transforming it into usable, high-value business information.
Exaquantum R3.20 comes with extended connectivity to OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) and enables more efficient and secure communication with business systems and data analysis tools to help achieve operational improvements.
To implement digital transformation journeys and drive improvement initiatives requires improved visibility into operations and the removal of information silos across an enterprise. In the process industries, this means plants are becoming more sophisticated with sensors and smart devices generating growing volumes of process data that needs to be accumulated, integrated, and structured for analysis and decision-making on plant information management systems (PIMS).
Increasingly, this large volume of data is also required by other business systems and tools, so it needs to be efficiently exported from the PIMS in a standardized format. In some situations, process data is used not just by plant operators but also other functions across the organization such as management, research, logistics, and procurement, so the data must be usable in a PC environment that follows the corporate IT regulations. Extending the usability of standardized plant data to a wider audience opens up opportunities to more easily extract value from this information and break down any silos that may exist.
Major Target Markets
Process industries such as oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, iron and steel, non-ferrous metals, electric power, pulp and paper, foods, pharmaceuticals, and water treatment
- Real-time collection of plant process data into databases
- Calculation of collected data
- Display of collected data in trend charts and other types of graphics, spreadsheets, etc.
