Sep 19 2018 Read 1001 Times
Yokogawa Electric Corporation has received a Technology Award from the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE)*1 for its achievements in the development of an IIoT-enabled flow configuration tool. The award was presented on 13th September 2018.
The Technology Award is one of the highest ranked awards conferred by SICE. It is given in recognition of the development of a technology or methodology within the past five years that represents a significant advance in any one of the science and technology fields or industries in which SICE is involved.
With its support of the latest FDT standard (FDT2.0), this software allows users to monitor the status of their instruments on a smartphone or an Ethernet-enabled device from anywhere in a plant, at any time. Compatibility between the FDT2.0 and OPC UA industrial standards allows the integration of FlowNavigator data with data from manufacturing execution systems (MES), enterprise resource planning (ERP) packages, and other software. Field Device Tool (FDT) is a standard that provides an open interface for the exchange of data between control systems and field devices such as pressure transmitters and flowmeters. It was developed and is promoted by the FDT Group, a non-profit organisation.
Yokogawa was presented with the award for its development of key technologies for an asset management tool that makes full use of industrial IoT (IIoT) to measure mass flow.
