Integrated operations with the operator in focus
With System 800xA, users enjoy a fully-integrated enterprise where PLCs, DCS systems, safety systems, live video, maintenance systems, lab system ERPs and more, all work together in an seamless, high performance HMI environment. The result is improved plant visibility and fast access to relevant information in real time, allowing operational issues to be resolved before downtime occurs.
Attention to human factors
Human factors based solutions for operator interfaces, workplaces and control room environments reduce operator stress and fatigue, increase focus and performance, thus improving situation awareness, abnormal situation handling, and reducing health issues and turnover of resources.
Good alarm management practices are essential in a modern, proactive control environment. In System 800xA, alarm metrics are continuously calculated according to ISA 18.2 and EEMUA 191, allowing analysis and optimization of the system for best possible function. Pre-formed, easy-to-understand graphic elements visualize these calculations, boosting alarm evaluation and promoting speedy and correct response.
Operator training and competency
800xA simulator provides a safe and realistic environment where operators can learn to master the process, improving operator competency, abnormal situation handling and plant, personnel, and environment safety.
