  • On an industry wide basis, just by the numbers, the opportunity to make use of stranded smart transmitter data is huge. HART is nearly 40% of installed base [20+ million] An estimated 85% of these HART devices are stranded – they are connected to analog-only loops. If you run the numbers, there are an estimated (39% x 55 million) x 85% = 18 million stranded HART devices.
  • Plant Asset management assesses performance, availability, and reliability of machinery, production, and automation assets. PAM capabilities includes process monitoring, smart devices, calibration and compliance management. Integration is necessary for PAM Plant Asset Management also can determine the nature of potential problems and utilizes equipment modeling to optimize performance of all plant assets
  • Profitability is no longer just about growing sales; it's also about organizational efficiency. Plant Asset Management can improve the performance of each asset Although originally aimed at maintenance PAM is much more Predictive Condition Monitoring provides early failure warnings resulting in increased availability and significant cost savings. Downtime and production interruptions can be avoided using PAM strategies. Process modeling and simulation techniques are becoming popular for asset optimization.

    26. 26. Reaping the Benefits of Standards-Based Wireless and PAM WirelessHART adapters and new wireless measurement points enable continuous, predictive monitoring of assets. Waiting for manual surveys to identify equipment problems is often too long. WirelessHART adapters cuts time-to-resolution by continuously enabling remote diagnostics and problem solving. Detecting and troubleshooting instrument problems is time consuming. Automate collection of field data to let staff focus on highest value activities. Manpower reductions, aging workforce. Wirelessly access locked data via WirelessHART adapters for improved monitoring and PAM of automation assets. Valuable information locked in smart field instruments. Solution Problem
    27. 27. Reaping the Benefits of Standards-Based Wireless and PAM Broaden access to real-time data via retrofits of existing devices and addition of new points to improve decision making. Incomplete field-data picture complicates time-sensitive decisions. Comprehensive picture of plant health cuts operating costs and improves plant productivity. Extra costs of under (or over) maintaining assets. Wireless networks bypass legacy DCS and integrate real-time monitoring data with plant management and enterprise systems. Getting data needed for PAM from plant through DCS is difficult. Field-powered wireless adapters add new PAM (or process) measurement points without long wire runs and use existing 4-20 mA instruments. New monitoring points for equipment assets involves costly runs of wire between DCS and field. Solution Problem
