Omega Simulation Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, announced the release of OmegaLand V3.4, an enhanced version of the OmegaLand integrated dynamic simulation environment. This core element of Omega Simulation’s plant training simulator provides realistic simulation and an engineering environment that can swiftly adapt to customers’ varied simulation needs.
Enhancements of the latest version include:
- Quick construction of simulation environments to swiftly meet increasingly complex needs
Virtual reality (VR) simulation environments that use 3D data are highly realistic, but building them requires a great deal of engineering time and effort. By using panoramic images captured with a 360- degree camera, OmegaLand V3.4 is able to significantly reduce the time and effort needed to create such environments, and the end result is highly realistic. With its enhanced graphic design and modelling-related functions, engineering efficiency is also improved. In increasingly complex plants, these functions can be used to quickly build a simulator that flexibly and quickly meet the varied needs of operators, engineers, and other personnel as well as requirements in such areas as operational assistance and process analysis.
- Enhanced connectivity through the support of different operating systems
By utilizing plant control, equipment, production management, and other kinds of data, and linking with other systems, simulators are able to build environments that are very close approximations of actual environments. With its compatibility with devices and applications running under both 64- and 32-bit operating systems, OmegaLand V3.4 is able to build high-precision simulation environments even in cases where there is great complexity in the linkage of plant systems.
Major target markets include oil, petrochemicals, chemicals, gas, power, and waterworks with applications of operational training for manufacturing plants, process review and analysis, verification and review of instrumentation system, operational assistance for plants, and engineering training.
