Process Control System

The fully web-enabled process control system

The universally applicable FlowChief process control system is the perfect solution for the monitoring and control of complex procedural automation processes for municipal and industrial applications. The integrated web visualization, with its possible use through any number of mobile and stationary operating devices, offers many advantages to the operators of small and large-scale plants.

All functions are available completely platformindependent and without additional software, as they are purely web-based. The recording of any desired process values, with intelligent long-term archiving, forms the basis for comprehensive alarm functions and a freely con?gurable reporting system. The process control system can be easily configured for individual customer requirements without any programming knowledge. The entire project planning is supported by intuitive interfaces, objects and symbols, so that a project can be created ef?ciently, quickly and professionally. All engineering tools required are included in the basic system free of charge.

The FlowChief process control system can be scaled from the smallest HMI software to the largest implementation of a redundant and clustered server system at any time, without loss of data. All configurations are fully retained at all times during this process. 

The sophisticated user and access management system makes it possible to tailor the system to the needs of clients and their applications without any restrictions. Because of its open structure with international standards, as well as the intuitive operation and administration, the FlowChief process control system is distributed through a network of partners in several languages and countries and in many sectors..

Visualization

The most important interface for end users, as a window to his application, is the web-enabled visualization of the complete functional content of process control technology. The entire monitoring and operation of a complete process plant is working continuously with all the technical features in pure web technology (HTML5), without any additional software on the client.

Archiving

In automation technology, a well-structured and long-term archiving is the basis for the evaluation and optimization of each process plant.

The integrated FlowChief process control system archiving is applying the highest standards a high-performance, secure data processing, combined with arbitrarily long data retention. Database with several hundred gigabytes are processed on the basis of the integrated Microsoft SQL Server itself.

Message and Alarm Management

FlowChief provides an attractive Web-based interface for the wide range of current and historical reports. Therein all digital messages (error messages, operational messages, warnings, etc.) are displayed in chronological order with millisecond precision. Including message summary, alarm management, emergency service plan, integrated evaluation and monitoring functions.

Reporting System and Reports

To assess whether a need for optimization for a process plant and to documentation and verification required a flexible reporting system is essential to the individual customer requirements. The FlowChief process control system provides the user with this individual and specific solutions.

Redundancy

For many, often major process equipment process plant availability plays a dominant role. Highest possible operational and data security can be achieved with a redundant FlowChief process control system. Ranging from double server systems to distributed and clustered structures different Cold- and hot-standby concepts can be implemented as needed.

Plant Management and Maintenance

For an extensive process plant a professional planning and monitoring of numerous maintenance activities is essential. This legal regulations observed and periodic inspections must be met and easily edited.

Learn more...

Process Control

By FlowChief process control system does not always must be programmed in the field area. Repetitive actions, timed events and recipe management can be completely set and control Web-enabled.

Learn more...

Configuration

In the central configuration interface of FlowChief process control system the customer application creates highly intuitive and comfortable. Web-enabled and intuitive topics such as process image creation, user administration and system documentation are covered.

HMI

The FlowChief HMI visualization is a complete FlowChief process control system without analogue value archiving and is independently run on any PC or Panel PC. The classic standalone application is the visualization for machines with the added value that local all monitoring, control and alarm functions are given.
