At Trident, we are able to efficiently update the HMI of your APACS to help you take advantage of new technology, features and functions. Siemens’ APACS OS®, which is based on the latest version of PCS7’s operation interface, incorporates a modular design for your legacy APACS system and can perform the functions of distributed control and/or programmable logic control for both continuous and batch control. The completed control system consists of three major components:
Expensive control system replacements are often required not because the control hardware is failing, but because the computers it uses for the operator interface are no longer available. InVision HMITM enhances the life cycle of your control system by allowing the use of late model PCs in conjunction with existing DCS hardware. It is based on the latest version of Wonderware software operator that integrates seamlessly with your control system hardware and configuration.
We provide support and integration for your APACS DCS running on InSight HMI™. Your process graphics conversion is straightforward, and more importantly, simple because InSight HMI is based on the latest version of Wonderware.
This KPI System lets you define your Key Performance Indicators, automatically collect and summarize their values, and present them in timely, professionally written reports, graphs, and dashboards. You decide which measurements are most important and how this information should be presented. And by tracking costs and prices, you know how profitable your plant was on any given day.
The Lab Data Module is a full suite of data collection and analysis tools in easy-to-read graphs and charts. In addition to analyzing the fermentation process for ethanol plants, users can expand the suite to record and analyze data in other areas:
A web-based data collection and reporting module that ensures you’re productive at the plant, front office or on the road. Use our product design or we can build extensions to customize your business needs. You can profit by reviewing stunning dashboards with real time updates, reporting capabilities, or data analysis in one easy web-based location. And the Trident Workbench provides the robust reporting information you need to better operate your at a cost far below its competition.
Reporting can be an important part of keeping your plant efficient. Trident Automation has developed your most crucial reports using SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS). The most reliable and robust reporting system that fully integrates with your systems!
Imagine putting all the information in your plant at the fingertips of the people who need it to make critical decisions. The Wonderware Information Server allows you to view your plant’s data on an intranet across all your networks. The Information Server includes:
Many of our customers are ethanol producers and they asked us to create a product to enhance the operation of the molecular sieves. Most ethanol plants can run a standard two or three bottle sequence, but making changes to the sequence to meet varying operating requirements can be a challenge.
Trident Automation has created a set of enhanced function blocks to operate your sieves:
Our strong base of ethanol customers has allowed us to standardize DCS programming and organization to make it as easy for plant maintenance teams. Trouble shooting and programming the DCS is done using a bundled rack mount PC with Rockwell RSLogix programming and remote access software. LogicPAC provides:
In partnership with Rockwell Automation, we offer Rockwell’s PlantPAx Process Automation system that provides an integrated solution to replace an aging DCS or install new system. It offers easy design, deployment, and improved visibility providing functionality across a range of discliplines in real time including:
Centrally manage instrumentation and electrical assts for configuration, calibration, and maintenance diagnostics.
