Yokogawa's global network of 18 manufacturing facilities, 91 affiliate companies, and over 500 sales and engineering offices spans 28 countries. Since its founding in 1915, the US$3 billion company has been engaged in cutting-edge research and innovation, securing more than 4,500 patents and registrations, including the world's first distributed control system and the first digital sensors for flow and pressure measurement. Industrial automation and control, test and measurement, information systems and industry support are the core businesses of Yokogawa.
The Centum CS 3000 R3 is designed to handle everything from small-scale facilities to very largest of plants. Each level, ranging from enterprise to field, can be fully interconnected using latest technologies. As a result, it is possible to optimize the overall system, reduce site operations, increase automation, raise productivity and of course boost profits
To build a manufacturing system that can immediately respond to the diverse needs of today's globally networked society, an electronic Realtime Manufacturing (e-RMTM) system is required. This is a new concept that is promoting the standardization of system configurations and component-based applications, using IT networks to link resource planning, manufacturing systems, and control throughout the enterprise.
Optimizing plant operation by understanding the on-site manufacturing performance in real time has become vital. Yokogawa offers a variety of solution based software packages which employ the industry standard interfaces, thereby assuring safe, stable and efficient plant operation.
The Yokogawa ProSafe-RS Safety System can be seamlessly integrated with the CENTUM CS 3000 R3., and share the same control network. The ProSafe-RS controller (hereafter SCS) can be directly connected to the CS 3000 V net control network so that it can be operated and monitored from an HIS in the same manner as an FCS. Process data, messages, and system status of CS 3000 and Prosafe-RS can be comprehensively monitored in the same windows on an HIS. The SCS and FCS have the same unit configuration and the same size, allowing that they are mounted in the same cabinet. And they have the common maintenance procedure for exchanging hardware components. V net components can be shared by both the ProSafe-RS and CS 3000, the ProSafe-RS can easily be deployed in a distributed configuration.
The FAST/TOOLS package is a distributed supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system that is powerful, state of the art and flexible.
Many industries and utility companies with a need for data integration and guaranteed data integrity are using FAST/TOOLS from Yokogawa in their applications. FAST/TOOLS are successful in critical applications due to its very stable design and support of redundant, as well as non-stop systems. It has an exceptionally high performance and the possibility to configure on-line.
