THE EVOLUTIONARY PROCESS
Unique in its ability to continuously preserve applications from the first version to the latest, the D/3 has always been the most powerful and adaptable DCS on the market. With D3v14, the D/3 takes another leap forward in visualization, ease of use, intelligence, and adaptability.
SUPERIOR NAVIGATION AND VISUALIZATION
With intuitive search-and-click navigation and customizable browser tabs, the ProcessVision console delivers a modern yet familiar user experience that will delight new users and seasoned D/3 veterans alike. New TotalVision HMI screens incorporate High Performance HMI design principles to keep operators informed without being overwhelmed.
MAKE EVERY OPERATOR YOUR BEST OPERATOR
Capturing the know-how of the most experienced operators and delivering it on demand to newer operators is a challenge facing every process industry – but one made easier by our patented Paperless Procedures software. Updated to address the evolving ISA 106 Procedural Automation standard, Paperless Procedures delivers automated accountability and ensures that operators know the right thing to do when it matters most.
IT'S A STUXNET WORLD
In today’s process plants, there is no more “outside the firewall”. D3v14 incorporates the latest Microsoft security features including Windows Authentication and Bit9 Whitelisting software. The ruggedized Orion Automation Platform acts as a secure communications gateway and data aggregator for islands of automation.
Safe and responsible plant operations are enhanced when chattering and nuisance alarms are reduced. D3v14 leverages the alarm audit software and best-in-class alarm management design principles of industry thought leader, and NovaTech partner, PAS.
DISCOVER HIDDEN EFFICIENCY
Energy costs are quickly becoming the largest controllable input to a process, and investments in Energy Asset Management can pay for themselves in months, not years.
D3v14 continues the D/3 tradition of truly open process control with non-proprietary Ethernet communications, Open Standards, and innovative 1-to-6 redundancy in our 8000 series I/O, installable in the Quantum I/O footprint without any additional modification.
Who needs wires? D3v14 includes the new D/3 Express Mobile Client – a thin client to monitor selected PID loops and trends from any mobile device. With Wireless Valve Monitoring from Eltav, the costs of monitoring remote valves and safety showers are drastically reduced, providing greater situational awareness and peace of mind for a fraction of wired alternatives.
