Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces the development of CENTUM CS 3000 R3 Release 3.08, a new version of its flagship integrated production control system with enhanced functionalities. The enhanced functionality of the new version allows the integrated use of data from throughout a plant and eases the task of creating an environment for the efficient monitoring of plant operations. In addition, an alarm & event integration function has been introduced that sends only optimal alarms to the right person at the right time. This counters the increase in information, in particular the increased number of alarms that are generated as a result of system integration, and contributes to the implementation of safe operations. This is the world''s first Consolidated Alarm Management Software Package for Human Interface Station (CAMS for HIS). It is provided for alarm integration, based on the Consolidated Alarm Management System (CAMS) concept. This offers a real-time alarm management function that works in harmony with a distributed control system (DCS) and provides multiple approaches to alarm management.
