Emerson has released the latest version of its Ovation expert control system, which is used to control power-generation and water/wastewater-treatment facilities around the globe.

The enhanced system features an improved operator interface, field device configuration/troubleshooting environment and graphics building tools to promote greater operator efficiency and productivity, and minimise the risk of human error.

From a control systems perspective, Emerson has identified the information needed most by operators and redesigned the Ovation interface accordingly, so that information is delivered in a more intuitive and customisable format.

Ovation’s redesigned operator interface features task-based ribbon toolbars that offer functionality based on the context in which the user is working.

With the new operator interface, key functions are front and centre; they no longer need to be accessed via separate properties-selection windows, enabling operators to more easily get to the information they need when they need it.

This latest Ovation release also allows operators to customise and save individual workspace settings, enabling them to view, for example, point information and alarms according to their individual preferences.

Giving operators the opportunity to work in a familiar environment allows them to focus on the most important data, streamlining the decision-making process.

Additionally, the enhanced Ovation Graphics Builder tools now incorporate new colour-management features, shape animation and application program wizards, among other improvements.

The new release of the Ovation system also features an improved configuration and troubleshooting environment for Hart and Foundation fieldbus devices.

Configuration tools are now consolidated into the Ovation Developers Studio – Emerson’s standard suite of engineering tools – so that everything needed to configure and commission devices is available in one location.

In addition, the Ovation Developers Studio now incorporates AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager v11, Emerson’s predictive maintenance software.

AMS Device Manager features Device Dashboards – intuitively designed interfaces that provide, in one glance, a clear view of everything users need to evaluate, diagnose and configure a field device.

Each has embedded expert guidance to streamline the most important and frequent tasks performed by plant operations, engineering and maintenance personnel.
