Is Your DeltaV System Healthy? System Health Monitoring has the Answer!
Even a small DeltaV System has hundreds of diagnostic parameters relating to individual components, software and hardware. Additionally, these diagnostics come from disparate sources and require various applications and interfaces. Consolidating these diagnostics into a single dashboard allows the DeltaV System administrator to stay focused on the health of the entire site. This session details how Pfizer's batch manufacturing facility in Sanford, NC, utilizes the latest technology to centralize system diagnostics and enable Connected Services to drive proactive system maintenance. A novel approach was implemented, leveraging virtualization and blending Emerson solutions and custom tools to proactively monitor, trend and stay alert in real-time.

Learn of a Life Science cost saving solution to simplify control of isolation valves in Clean Space
In recent years Grifols has evolved the way in which they pilot process isolation valves; from discretely wired pilot valves on the process valve to valve manifolds on bus networks. On a recent plant expansion project, they have decided to control isolation valves via Emerson's ASCO 580 CHARMs manifolds connected to their Electronic Marshaling (CHARMs) I/O.
While the previous setups worked fine, the 580 CHARMs solution offered some unique features and benefits that moves the piloting of the process valves from a discretely wired setup, or a simplex bus network, into a redundant, native, I/O platform using DeltaV CHARMs. It also allows for diagnostic feedback directly into the DCS and simplifies maintenance while working in and around a clean space.
