Company and Product News

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announced the development and July 1 release of the PRM Commissioning Support Package R1.02, an OpreX Asset Management and Integrity family solution that is used to perform plant commissioning and periodic maintenance.

For connections between Foundation Fieldbus and HART field devices and Yokogawa’s CENTUMTM VP integrated production control system and ProSafe-RS safety integrated system, the PRM package helps improve work efficiency by performing connection checks, range checks, linearization checks, and loop checks in simulated output mode, and also generates work reports.  With the Package R1.02, support for Windows 10 and a new function that improves work efficiency in commissioning and periodic maintenance have been added.


1. New function that improves work efficiency

A new function for the early detection of field device connection errors has been added. By automatically comparing the tag information defined in the control system/safety instrumented system engineering environment with the tag information set for each field device, this quickly and efficiently detects device connection errors.

2. Support for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016

Support for the latest operating systems has been added: For PCs, Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit and Windows 10 Enterprise 2016 LTSB 64-bit are now supported; for servers, Windows Server 2016 Standard 64-bit and Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard 64-bit are now supported.
