PSIcontrol

Your digital link to transportation pipelines and gas networks

Monitor and control in true real-time the entire line of your instruments, valves, pumps and compressors. Collect, store and analyze all your asset data. Transform thousands of data items into useful information. Combine your operations with gas and pipeline management and create enterprise-wide information systems. Build secure systems with strong authentications and keep your assets safe from vulnerabilities. Follow best practices and satisfy the regulatory requirements of the authorities.

High Performance Human-Machine Interface

Use effective information presentations

Increase situational awareness. Create a better HMI to avoid human errors in critical situations. Design interfaces to be clear and intuitive. Navigate quickly and easily between screens that need your attention for a given situation. Improve the safety of your pipelines, related equipment and facilities. Proactively investigate issues before something goes wrong.

Real-Time Observability

Get a complete set of information of all tags in true real-time. Monitor the status of your complete pipeline network. Get rapid access to individual tags and status data in complex tag hierarchies. Identify all items that indicate a critical situation.

Navigation

Use quick links to navigate between process screens and throughout all process levels. Go directly from symbols to station and other details. Use drag-and-drop and follow the links from process screens to trend graphs or alarm lists.

Replay and Analyze

Replay previously recorded process data either incrementally or event-based. Analyze the root causes of abnormal situations, threshold exceedances and associated process units.

Design

Create screens quickly and intuitively. Draw your own graphics or use various time-saving templates. Build and manage any number of screens. Reduce development time by having multiple people working simultaneously.

Alarm Management and Event Logging

Pinpoint the exact cause of a problem

Prevent pipeline, equipment and facility downtimes. Avoid alarm noise and focus on the critical information. Use advanced filtering and get faster to the point of origin. Display your alarms graphically and in tabular form. Group and aggregate alarms and browse easily even through complex tag hierarchies. Define areas of responsibilities and limit visibility to assigned alarms and events to increase situational awareness.

Advanced Situational Awareness

Instantly identify the status and priority of each alarm. Use visual indicators on your process graphics to quickly recognize any deviation from normal operation. Get all details of your alarm and event messages in tabular form. Find the root causes of a problem in tag hierarchies with your tag browser.

Logging

Get a complete chronological history and high-level view on all operator actions, condition changes, status updates or any other activity in your system.  Log all data for future consideration analysis. Systematically identify potential  process-related  threats.

Diagnostics and Nuisance Reduction

Define what information you can see within your areas of responsibilities. Provide context by adding operator notes to alarms and events. Accelerate analysis by using a large number of filter settings. Select priorities, time ranges, users, individual tags and tag groups or stations.

Configuration Management

Build an advanced alarming system that fits the needs of your operations. Define all alarms and events which demand your attention. Configure appropriate sequences and escalations for notification of support personnel. Use templates to inherit conditions and settings.

Data Historian

Exploit the full potential of your collected data

Collect, aggregate and store all your operational data from different sources across areas and facilities. Scale your storage to the required size. Benefit from the ability to correlate data over time. Gain process knowledge to improve productivity, quality, and efficiency of your operations. Pick up patterns and anomalies that lead to failure events.

Trend Graphs and Tables

Use drag-and-drop features and show immediately trend curves of process display items. Scroll forward and backward at different speeds through your data history. Zoom in and out to show or hide details. Select time ranges and compare different trend lines each with respective dimension.

Annotation Management

Enrich your recorded data with annotations to provide further details. Assign annotations to time series at critical times as well as show them together with trend graphs. Scroll forward and backward at different speeds along all annotations.

Corrective Action

Revise and adjust your data in case it is getting corrupted due to defective instrumentation or network communication issues. All associated aggregations are recalculated after you have made the necessary corrections. Change single values or multiple values within time intervals, either manually or graphically.

Configuration Management

Save and load trend graphs as well as tables. Use advanced filter to quickly find the desired information. Select by time, area of responsibility, measurement type, data type, min or max values, threshold violation and many other parameters.
