A cement manufacturing facility worked with us to implement a process historian and data visualization tools for its R&D plant. We completed the work on-site, working directly with the facility personnel to specify the data to be stored in the process historian.
Corso Systems implemented FactoryTalk VantagePoint and FactoryTalk Historian to store and analyze process data at multiple facilities for a leading diatomaceous earth processing company.
A leading diatomaceous earth processing facility was storing its production data in Excel spreadsheets. The long-term effects of this method lead to large amounts of spreadsheets on their servers, and made it difficult to access necessary information efficiently. The best remedy for this problem was to move to a web-based solution. This approach provided a centralized database to store the data and an interface for authorized users to enter, edit, and view the data.
Our staff worked with a solar power provider to develop and implement a web-based monitoring system for use at 3 of their new solar power plants. The website was configured to allow internal users to monitor real-time data from each facility, with data access to the general public on a 30 day delay. The system provided operational staff with automatic email and text notifications of equipment alarms. The site included functionality for customer invoicing and utility reporting to comply with regulatory requirements.
