DeltaV Version 12 Adds Increased Flexibility, Predictability, and Security While Reducing Complexity


The DeltaV System’s v12 release comes with big technological innovations that provide customers with new levels of flexibility, predictability and security along with reduced operating costs. Key features in this release include the expansion of Emerson’s innovative electronic marshalling, combining the proven performance and reliability of the DeltaV Safety Instrumented System (SIS) with the installation flexibility and space savings of its Electronic Marshalling technology. This new SIS offering greatly simplifies design, installation, wiring and commissioning of SIS projects, while at the same time increasing capacity and reducing footprint. Based on human centered design (HCD) principles, the new logic solver architecture uses Electronic Marshalling and characterization module (CHARM) technology to eliminate the need for conventional marshalling, which simplifies both installation and commissioning processes.

The v12 release also includes integrated Virtualization technology which enables users to easily consolidate computer resources and reduce implementation and maintenance costs. DeltaV Virtual Studio makes it easy to create virtual DeltaV systems from pre-built templates and preconfigured virtual networks. The v12 release can also allay users’ growing systems security concerns. The new Emerson Smart Firewall product in v12 allows users to easily set up a safe and secure network for the automation system, locking down the the control system network against unauthorized downloads and hacking without costly consulting from security experts.

For process industry users who produce in batches, the v12 release includes an easy-to-use analytics application that provides real-time quality predictions while the batch is in process. Using sophisticated models, it can trace the causes of manufacturing variations that can render a product below specifications or unmarketable. The application can help users correct manufacturing problems before the batch becomes irreparably compromised.

Emerson’s 2140 next-generation vibration analyzer enables faster data collection and analysis

Emerson Process Management has introduced the CSI 2140 Machinery Health Analyzer, the next generation of its portable tool for analyzing machinery vibration to detect potential problems before they lead to unplanned downtime. The new analyzer builds on the capabilities of Emerson’s popular CSI 2130 to provide new four-channel simultaneous data collection functionality, wireless and Bluetooth communication, and a full-color touchscreen. The CSI 2140 also delivers the fastest route collection capability on the market, enabling workers to spend more time on higher-value tasks. The analyzer’s new ergonomic shape and lighter weight make data-collection routes easier on users. Data collection is over 50% faster than with other analyzers, minimizing the time spent in uncomfortable or dangerous environments and allowing technicians to complete the collection more quickly. The screen is easy to read in both direct sunlight and dark areas and auto-adjusts based on ambient lighting. With four-channel data collection, users can collect vertical, horizontal, and axial readings on a bearing at the same time. Using this data and Emerson’s unique PeakVue™ technology, reliability technicians can detect compromised bearing performance earlier than with any other measurement technique. Contact Dmitri Krugovykh ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) for more information about the new CSI 2140, as well as the limited time offer to trade in your current vibration analyzer for a discount on the CSI 2140.

   

Control Valve Services for Startups or Outages

Some valves need extra attention. You know which ones. Critical valves need critical attention at startup. When high temperatures, pressure, and corrosive materials are involved, you need these valves to perform quickly and flawlessly, with tight shut-off. That's where Northeast Controls' experts can really help you get your plant off to a great start. Our Instrument & Valve Startup Services include several indispensable steps for starting up and commissioning your critical valve applications. First, we review your valve's manufacturing specifications by checking its serial card for assembly configuration. We'll also check your valve's factory diagnostic benchmark. We'll check components such as tubing and linkages for any sign of external damage, and we'll ensure proper mounting of the valve.

Next comes a full seven-point diagnostic test, where we'll check and confirm travel, bench set, friction, seat load, trim condition, response to input signal, and stroking speed. Finally, we'll tune and calibrate the positioner, then issue a full exit report. When you purchase Valve Startup Services, you receive an enhanced service warranty (parts and labor) on the serviced valves, all included in our basic package. You can also purchase an ongoing Diagnostic Agreement, assuring that your critical valve will stay trouble-free and perform optimally. This plan includes one annual preventive maintenance servicing. Got a critical application planned for your plant, or do you have an upcoming plant outage or turnaround?  Contact a Northeast Controls Account Manager or Sales Engineer to help you keep your processes profitable and your valves working at peak performance.
