Invensys demonstrates enhanced InFusion Condition Manager at user group meeting
Denver, Col.,September 10 - Invensys' InFusion Condition Manager is a real-time asset condition management component for the company's InFusion enterprise control system (ECS) and other platforms. It collects real-time condition data from a broad range of plant data sources, analyzes and contextualizes the data, and then triggers and manages the appropriate operations, engineering or maintenance actions.
Other vendors' condition monitoring solutions tend to focus on basic monitoring of field devices and/or rotating equipment. In contrast, InFusion Condition Manager collects, aggregates and analyzes real-time data from the full array of plant production assets, including (but not limited to) sensors and actuators, pumps, motors, compressors, turbines, dryers and heat exchangers; and even entire process units.
The InFusion Condition Manager interoperates with all Invensys and third-party applications supported through the InFusion application environment. Thanks to recent version 2.2 enhancements, equipment condition and maintenance information can now also easily be displayed on plant process control and engineering HMI workstations. This information was previously only available on Invensys' own Avantis.PRO enterprise asset management (EAM) system or other computerized maintenance management systems,
The InFusion Condition Manager can now also feed data to a variety of different plant Historian packages to allow the data and actions to be historized and made available to other plant and enterprise systems. And to more easily facilitate bulk deployment throughout industrial plants with a large number and diversity of production assets, the enhanced InFusion Condition Manager offers improved template capabilities. These templates save time and drive best practices.
"Our InFusion Condition Manager provides a powerful toolset that can enable industrial plants to avoid unnecessary maintenance and downtime via predictive, reliability-centered maintenance and operations to help improve overall asset performance management," commented Isauro Martinez-Cairo, director of Avantis product strategy at Invensys Process Systems.
