Eurotherm Wonderware PAC Software. A comprehensive architecture and tool set for the efficient integration and support of Eurotherm PAC Systems within System Platform (Powered by Wonderware)
As industrial processes evolve to take advantage of Industry 4.0 technologies, process control systems often need the capability and flexibility to connect into wider plant and business level systems.
In a typical high end SCADA system, multiple software tools are needed to integrate the different components. This can slow down and complicate each stage of the engineering process, adding unnecessary time and cost.
Choosing a supervisory control system based on Eurotherm T2750 PAC controllers and visual supervisors enables faster integration through the use of Eurotherm Wonderware PAC Software. This tool set is designed to simplify integration into the highly respected AVEVA System Platform (formerly AVEVA System Platform (Powered by Wonderware)) and its related products, such as Historian, Batch Management (formerly InBatch), and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software, as well as other data analysis packages.
Compared to traditional SCADA solutions, utilizing the Eurotherm Wonderware PAC single integrated development environment (IDE) not only helps to reduce capital expenditure during the engineering phase by aiding faster integration, but also helps to minimize operational costs through efficient maintenance throughout the system’s life-cycle
Familiar T2750 software tools can be launched from within the Wonderware PAC IDE for centralized management and quick access to:
Manage all elements of a project from one environment, from small projects to large scale system platform architectures.
From sensor to actuator, all signal conditioning, linearization and control algorithms are encapsulated in simple to use function blocks with pre-canned visualization components.
In traditional SCADA Systems, vital process data can be lost if communications are interrupted or equipment fails. This can lead to rework or scrap product, and noncompliance to validation procedures and regulatory audits.
Eurotherm PAC provides a data centric system which allows data to be stored locally at the point of measurement. If control device communication is interrupted, your data is automatically back-filled to the historian using Eurotherm ‘Store and Forward’ technology within the Wonderware PAC software, substantially reducing the risk of data loss compared to traditional SCADA methods.
Alarms, events operator login/access and messages can be recorded in internal memory. A more reliable solution compared to traditional SCADA methods.
Control, data acquisition and audit features provided from within Wonderware PAC software aid compliance to specialist industry standards such as:
For peace of mind, your Eurotherm Wonderware PAC solution can be supported and maintained throughout its life-cycle by experienced Eurotherm field service teams, as part of a Eurotherm Customer FIRST Service Level Agreement.
