Intuitive data search capabilities-like popular Web search sites–and a task-based user interface, make it easy for even non-DeltaV users to find the right data. Analyzing batch data is easy–it automatically associates the batch and continuous process data as well as provides for multiple batch comparisons. Once identified, you can easily export data via open, XML-based text files for use in specialized analysis software

Workstation Alarm Reports.
Easily record the active and/or suppressed alarms at an Operator Station, such as prior to shift change, for tracking and communications.

Smarter SIS

DeltaV SIS Communications.
For large, demanding safety-critical applications, the secure DeltaV SIS communications bandwidth has doubled to simplify engineering and communications between DeltaV logic solvers.

DeltaV SIS Simulation.
For easier logic development, project factory acceptance testing, and ongoing operator training, DeltaV Simulate now extends to DeltaV SIS in standalone and multimode applications. Only the DeltaV system delivers an integrated BPCS and SIS simulation solution using the exact same configuration that is implemented in the plant.

DeltaV SIS / DVC6000 SIS.
DeltaV SIS HART 2-state output now connects with Fisher DVC6000 SIS to provide continuous power to DVC6000 when in the shutdown state. Installation and maintenance are simplified since a solenoid is no longer required to retain power for diagnostics forensics data stored in the DVC6000 SIS.

Easier Engineering

Control Studio Ribbon Bar.
Configuring the DeltaV system is even easier and more intuitive with the quick access toolbar and ribbon. Similar to Microsoft Office 2007 applications, actions are organized by logical tasks and are fully customizable. Productivity-enhancing tooltips and fast keys streamline configuration efforts.
