Emerson is launching DeltaV Mobile, a new platform that leverages Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies to empower the manufacturing engineer of the future with the most complete access to real-time data, trends and insight to make better-informed, critical operations decisions – securely from anywhere in the world.
The DeltaV is part of Emerson’s Plantweb digital ecosystem, DeltaV Mobile fuses smartphone technology with process control data to make operational intelligence available 24/7 for its customers – which include oil and gas operations, refineries, chemical plants, and life sciences facilities– for improved safety, reliability and operational performance.
The digital plant of the future uses DeltaV Mobile to remove the confines of the control room and enable the digital worker— managers, engineers, operators and subject matter experts —to monitor operations and see critical operational data when, how and where they want, without waiting for regular business hours, manual reports, or being tied to a computer.
By integrating seamlessly and securely with the DeltaV distributed control system, DeltaV Mobile delivers critical contextual data that is often left behind by other solutions. With added context, DeltaV Mobile users can make better decisions around operational events that could affect bottom-line business results. Incorporating Emerson’s Plantweb Secure First Mil technology, DeltaV Mobile provides safe, remote access to important plant data without impacting critical production systems.
“DeltaV Mobile is an important Industrial IoT tool to help companies make decisions faster and smarter,” says Jamie Froedge, president, process systems and solutions, Emerson Automation Solutions. “Mobile intelligence will transform operational workflows and practices and drive collaboration across the enterprise, which helps customers reach Top Quartile performance.” Top Quartile is defined as achieving operations and capital performance in the top 25 per cent of peer companies.
An Industrial IoT-ready infrastructure, DeltaV Mobile enables on-site teams to quickly and securely connect with off-site experts, extending organisation-wide expertise and collaboration beyond the plant. Intuitive mobile views and customisable filtering ensure that users see clear and relevant data and alerts about the safety and performance of facilities. It easily provides alarms, trends and data available on DeltaV operator workstations to iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as alarm alerts via push, SMS, or email notification.
