Schneider electric improves time to production

August 09/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, released EcoStruxure Field Device Expert, an application that improves how engineers commission, configure and maintain field devices throughout the lifecycle of the plant, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

Field Device Experts Intelligent Commissioning Wizard completely automates detection, configuration, commissioning and testing of HART field instrumentation connected to an EcoStruxure Foxboro distributed control system (DCS). Automatic binding and configuration of HART devices has been shown to reduce commissioning schedules by more than 75 percent, leading to faster time to profit.

Traditional, manual device commissioning methodology is manpower intensive, making it error-prone, time-consuming and expertise dependent. By automating the configuration and commissioning process, Field Device Expert drastically changes automation project execution by minimizing hardware dependencies and custom engineering and offers more flexibility in the design, timing and sequence of activities. For example, with traditional commissioning methods, it can take up to 50 minutes to configure each asset. Field Device Experts Intelligent Commissioning Wizard shortens that time to 15 minutes, which is a 70 percent reduction. Once the plant is operating, Field Device Expert continues to ease field device configuration and condition monitoring throughout the plant lifecycle which means restarts?like those that occur after a maintenance turnaround or any shutdown?are also faster and easier.

As part of Schneider Electrics EcoStruxure architecture and platform, Field Device Expert improves efficiency, safety, productivity and profitability. EcoStruxure is Schneider Electrics open, interoperable, IoT-enabled system architecture and platform and delivers enhanced value around safety, reliability, efficiency, sustainability and connectivity.
