The connection of FlowChief remote control technology to higher-level process control systems and applications via a pure software OPC server, the FlowChief GPRSmanager.
The configuration of the software couldn’t be easier. Only the login credentials and the station type need to be specified per type of station. Additional parameterization of the process data is not required. With this, all process variables can be accessed straight from the parent application.
Every OPC-enabled application can be coupled with this high-performance remote control technology. Parameterization of the entire remote control network directly from the control system is also possible in conjunction with the FlowChief process control system. Remote control technology becomes a “plug and play” experience.
The GPRSmanager provides a number of different system parameters and variables. This way, data transmission can be controlled and adjusted from the control center. By status signals such as the connection status, network quality or the volume of data, the system connections can be continuously monitored and alarm given or extensive communication analysis for troubleshooting can be conducted.
