Emerson Process Management AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager

Tuesday, 01 April, 2014 | Supplied by: Emerson


Emerson Process Management’s AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager is now capable of commissioning Foundation fieldbus devices faster with the new version 12.5 software. Users can bring devices online with the features, options, and alerts they select - in a fraction of the time it would normally take. With the version’s functionality, Emerson anticipates reduced commissioning time on smart devices by almost 80% compared to existing work practices. In addition to faster start-up, users can make online changes to many devices simultaneously.

Emerson worked with Shell to develop a more efficient configuration solution for Shell’s Prelude floating natural gas (FLNG) production vessel project. With over 5000 Foundation fieldbus devices at the Prelude site, many with more than 100 configurable parameters, Shell was concerned about the time it would take to complete commissioning tasks. Configuring the devices one at a time is error prone and laborious - configuring a single device may take up to 60 minutes - then configuration for each individual device must be verified.

The User Configurations tool enables users to standardise asset configuration and eliminate configuration errors. Users have the option to apply configuration templates to device place holders or live devices. The devices can be commissioned one by one as field engineers are wiring the segments or automatically in groups. Built-in reporting allows users to quickly validate that parameters have been applied correctly.
