8 Top Reasons why Electronic Marshalling should be your PCS (DCS/PLC) * Technology Standard in this “New Normal” Era By Fantoni • Intended for non power plant users • PCS refer to DCS/PLC Background • Most of us hope that the COVIID-19 outbreak will end within months and things will go back to normal, in fact, many aspect of our society may never return to normal • The Covid 19 outbreak have disrupted almost all business sectors • Mobilization limitation, as mostly cities / regencies formally enforces large-scale social restriction • Social distancing policy force 40-50% workforce is not available to perform their function on site. • Government have state that country must be ready for “a new normal” condition Objective • This presentation intended to give an ideas what is technology that available in the Process Control Systems (PCS) – non power plant, that can support companies to give flexibility and continued resiliency into short and long term strategizing • This presentation also will give an ideas that Companies must be ready for limited resource available in the site, which mix between experience and non experience resources • This presentation also want to share about Advanced Feature that available in PCS that suitable implement in this “New Normal” condition • This paper can give ideas to any Systems Designers, FEED Contractors, Instrument Engineers, Project Managers, Plant Managers about how to get the upmost performance of PCS by implementing of Electronic Marshalling Technology Solution Philosophy • To support plant operational, it was required PCS that easy to use, easy to maintenance, truly open technology, easy to monitor, easy to troubleshooting • To support plant performance it was required PCS that have embedded Asset Management Systems (AMS) to help field device troubleshooting • PCS must be have generic solution for Mobile Worker, remote desktop, remote monitoring • PCS must be reliable by providing redundancy on Controller, Power Supply, All IO’s, Control Network and implementing peer to peer architecture. • PCS must comply with ISA Secure SSA Level 1 Certification and IEC 62443, to give optimum performance for cyber security • PCS must provide easy support on project execution with minimum resource that required in the field. Electronic Marshalling * CHARM I/O Card 24V DC Field Power Injection • • 96 Channel I/O card Always redundant for all IO A/D converter with character (CHARM - characterization module) Hidden digital bus provides field power and digital electronic marshalling Multi-core wiring Junction Box * Electronic Marshallling is refer to Emerson Technology • Any CHARM in any channel • Any CHARM to any controller forgiving mistakes and late changes • The CHARM provides: • Signal Characterization • Field wiring Disconnect • Circuit protection • Current limiting • Internal resettable fuse • Clear LED Status and Fault indicators • CHARMs are hot swappable • Provides channel to channel separation • Space Saving, almost empty Systems Cabinet First Reason : Plug and Play Capability Plug and Play Capability means The ability of hardware equipment to automatically identify itself to the system. When the equipment is powered up it is automatically assigned a unique identity without the need to set any dip switches. This feature very useful when we want to replace the broken charm or broken IO or broken controller, what you need to make sure is only the same type, and pull out the broken card, and plug in the new card, and they system will automatically detect. This feature make Electronic Marshalling very easy to maintenance, no need to have special knowledge to do routine maintenance, all is automatically Requirement to have expert on site can be minimized, as remote support would be enough for most of situation Second Reason : Peer to Peer Architecture Established Direct Communication between Node (Workstation / Controller ) Loss of workstation does not impact other nodes – workstation can back up to each other Communications optimized to reduce network loading This feature make PCS architecture is simple and easy to maintenance as there is no server between workstation and controller Third Reason : Embedded AMS Asset Management Systems should be “Must Have Capability” for current situation All Electronic Marshalling IO have supported Hart and have embedded Basic AMS Capability as standard functionality All Charms have self diagnostic capability This feature would be very useful to support troubleshooting that related to field devices Fourth Reason : Redundant IO Increase reliability by providing redundant for all IO’s Each charm will act as a fuse to protect adjacent channel Hot swap replacement This feature would increase the reliability and would be easy during maintenance plant Fifth Reason : Device Auto Sensing Devices are identified by the device tag The wiring or channel position is no longer relevant for device identification purposes. It does not matter if the device was pre-tagged by the vendor or tagged on site before mechanical completion As long as Hart Devices, Devices can be auto sensing from each channel This feature would make device troubleshooting, device replacement would be easy to be done using Electronic Marshalling Sixth Reason : Assigned to Different Controller Any I/O type in any slot Unit A controller Utilities controller In the same IO, each channel can be assign to up to 4 different controllers Design is simplified. Late Changes Easily Accommodated This is awesome feature of Electronic Marshalling, by using this feature, controller loading would be easily maintained and any changing on IO would be easily accommodated Seventh Reason : Native Mobile Capability Know Your Process Health On-Demand •View real-time data, trends, and alarms from DeltaV systems and OPC sources No DeltaV Configuration Required •Native integration with DeltaV makes it EASY by using existing configurations. Receive Intuitive Notifications •Get relevant process data, trends,and Alarm Help to take the right actions Built for Cybersecurity • The ISASecure SSA certification is based on the ISA/IEC 62443-3-3 and62443-4-1 standards Eighth Reason : Smart Commisioning Commissioning now easy, most task now automatically Loop testing can be done from Control Room by one person and automatically documented Reducing Commissioning hours up to 93% This feature would make Project Commissioning is very simple, do not need a lot of resources to do commissioning now.
