Designed for use with Simatic PCS 7 process control systems, Plant Asset Management uses a combination of software, smart instrumentation and fieldbus communications to continuously monitor critical plant assets. And, since the system is designed to integrate into the PCS 7 process control system, engineering and configuration needs are minimized. The system provides a platform that includes a variety of plant assets, including valves, process instrumentation, computers, networking equipment, drives, motors, pumps, process control components such as I/O modules, and non-intelligent assets such as heat exchangers.
