GE FANUC Intelligent Platforms, a unit of GE Enterprise Solutions, has released the latest version of its process control system: Proficy Process Systems – Version 1.5.
Proficy Process Systems is a fully-integrated process control system that will provide customers with improved quality and reliability, increased throughput, performance and efficiency, and reduced total cost of ownership.
The system features a common global namespace that provides simplified configuration and maintenance for the user.
Tags in the system are defined once and then referenced and used commonly throughout the system. This global namespace capability can reduce system configuration time by 30 percent.
The foundation of Proficy Process Systems is a contemporary hardware and software infrastructure that offers the benefits of both traditional DCS and PLC/HMI systems, without many of the historic limitations of those approaches.
GE Fanuc’s multi-disciplined PACSystems controllers can handle process, discrete, and motion control applications giving users flexibility in their control system.
The award-winning HMI/SCADA and Historian technologies, coupled with Batch and a complete Production Management suite allows customers to finally close the gap between automation and information.
The system is also packed with control features including a comprehensive set of function blocks for advanced regulatory control.
In addition, user defined function blocks can be created for the freedom and flexibility to define control algorithms as necessary, and system integrators can lock these blocks to protect their intellectual property.
Customers can choose the fieldbus technologies they need for their applications because Proficy Process Systems provides an open fieldbus approach by supporting Foundation Fieldbus, Profibus DP and PA, HART, Ethernet, and ASI.
