Yokogawa releases CENTUM VP R6.07

Electric Corporation announces the July 18 release of CENTUM™ VP R6.07. CENTUM VP is the core product in the OpreX™ Control and Safety System family of solutions.
 
CENTUM VP R6.07 has been enhanced to enable communication with devices that support the PROFINET Industrial Ethernet® standard. Also, new functions have been added to the Automation Design Suite (AD Suite) integrated engineering environment to improve engineering efficiency. These enhancements address the latest customer needs and boost productivity.
 
Development Background
The CENTUM VP control system platform provides a robust, secure, and efficient operation, monitoring, and engineering environment for the entire plant lifecycle—from initial design, engineering, installation of systems and equipment, and startup to full operation, maintenance, renovation, modification, and end of service. Yokogawa has continued to enhance this system to ensure optimal performance, while ensuring full backward compatibility.
 
The versatile use of open field digital communications technology simplifies the task of selecting the best equipment and utilising data for the maintenance of facilities. By introducing its field digital technology in plants and adding support for a variety of communication standards and protocols, Yokogawa has expanded the scope of facilities, devices, and equipment that can be operated and monitored in an integrated manner by CENTUM VP.
 
In addition, Yokogawa has continued to strengthen the functionality of its engineering environment with the goal of improving engineering efficiency in plant construction and expansion projects.
 
Enhancements
1. Enhancement of field digital solution with PROFINET support
Yokogawa now offers a communications card for the PROFINET Industrial Ethernet standard, which is widely used in Europe. With this enhancement, the operation and monitoring of PROFINET devices as well as devices that support the FOUNDATIONTM Fieldbus, HART®, PROFIBUS-DP, and ISA100 Wireless™ standards can be integrated into CENTUM VP. PROFINET, an Industrial Ethernet standard with excellent real-time performance, is mainly used at motor control centres and with programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
 
2. Increased engineering efficiency
With CENTUM VP R6.07, Yokogawa has enhanced the functions of the AD Suite integrated engineering environment for the module-based engineering of control applications and alarm attributes. A new module grouping function is now available that enables the efficient customisation and reuse of modules to construct similar applications. In addition, sequence applications have been added to the module library. This will enhance efficiency in the modification of sequential controls and other control programs.
 
Major Target Markets
Oil and gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, electric power, pulp and paper, pharmaceuticals, food, iron and steel, water supply and wastewater treatment, non-ferrous metals, metal, cement, etc.
 
Applications
Monitoring and control of plant operations
