Configuration Implementation Considerations for Distributed Control Systems

Nov 3, 2016 1:22:06 PM | Posted by Ronnie Harris

There are many manufacturers that have designed and built distributed control systems (DCSs) and there are several methods that can be performed to make the plant implementation process more efficient.

No matter what the control systems platform's structure is the tag name/point name implementation methodology is basically the same. There are some things that can be done before the actual plant implementation is done onsite to make this process more efficient. Once the necessary research and proper investigation of interface circuitry for field instruments is done, the configuration process is more reliable and cost-effective for the client-especially during a plant turnaround with time restraints.
