DeltaV Software

You’re faced with many options for automating your plants. What separates the DeltaV digital automation system?

Precision time keeping

Across all PC workstations and controllers, precise time can be synchronized to the atomic clock. Time synchronization is available with full redundancy. Precision time means:

For your traditional field devices, the DeltaV system offers digital Sequence of Events (SOE) interfaces that provide time stamping in the SOE cards to 1msec resolution.

User security

Key system services built into the D e l t a V s o f t w a r e i n c l u d e : P e e r - t o - p e e r c o m m u n i c a t i o n s H i s t o r y s e r v i c e s E v e n t s e r v i c e s Alarm services T i m e h a n d l i n g H o t e x p a n s i o n s e r v i c e s T a g l o o k - u p s e r v i c e s D i a g n o s t i c s e r v i c e s O n - l i n e u p g r a d e s .

Peer-to-peer awareness

The DeltaV system keeps a real-time database available to all connected PCs and controllers. Functions difficult or impossible to implement in component based solutions easily d o n e i n t h e D e l t a V s y s t e m i n c l u d e : S y s t e m - w i d e a l a r m m a n a g e m e n t G l o b a l s e c u r i t y b y u s e r a n d function

Time-stamped and validated at the source

Digital automation systems, like the DeltaV system, are built to receive, store and use data time-stamped in digital field devices (where supported). With the addition of a GPS time clock, these time stamps are within 1msec. Goodness of the information comes with status passed by these devices and propagated throughout the DeltaV system.

Built on Windows workstation security, the DeltaV system provides easy, flexible, system-wide security management for all users including operators, engineers, technicians, and other automation users. Based on user login, these keys control both system functionality and span of operator control. Examples of security settings include: Operating span of control by plant
