Redundant control system
Mitsubishi Electric Automation has paired its proven iQ-R Series integrated control platform with a redundant function module to create a redundant process control system for applications that require highly reliable control. The system is designed for applications that require near 100% uptime to prevent harmful or costly disruptions. Key features include: redundancy across multiple levels, reducing single-point failures; high availability at multiple levels for improved system reliability; extensive visualization and data acquisition with Mitsubishi Electric SCADA MC Works64; and easy configuration with GX Works3 integrated engineering software.

Continuous diagnostic monitoring
Endress+Hauser adds Heartbeat Technology to its Micropilot FMR5X free-space radar and FMP5X Levelflex guided radar level transmitters. Heartbeat Technology is an on-board diagnostics and instrument verification system that continuously monitors the status of mechanical, electromechanical and electronic components in the sensor, and sends alerts when it detects a problem. Alerts are sent in accordance with NAMUR recommendation NE 107 and are displayed at the device. The built-in diagnostics can detect process problems such as build-up or foam before failure occurs. Verification information, reports, diagnostics alerts and instrument data can be viewed at the control and monitoring system.
Schneider Electric’s ClearSCADA 2017 comes equipped with innovative location services and integrated mapping functionalities. Intuitive embedded location-based alarming and filtering, overlaid with real-time weather data and GPS mapping, provides insight into asset performance. Location support improves clarity of asset position and status via location-based alarming and filtering, with asset locations displayed on integrated maps. Integrated mapping facilitates selection of online map sources, ArcGIS map information, and/or Web Map Service information or other GIS, weather, and other valuable real-time information. Active directory user access allows central management of ClearSCADA users and permissions
