DCM link enhances plant productivity by unifying all electric actuators on a common platform while allowing plant operators to gain deep insights into asset status and performance
Emerson Process Management has introduced DCMlink Software, a unified electric actuator control, monitoring and diagnostics platform.
The DCMlink platform will allow, for the first time, Emerson customers to diagnose, configure, and monitor all electric actuators from a central location independent of protocol, actuator or host system. The software extends the useful life of field assets by providing actuator data gathering, condition monitoring, events log and prioritisation of actuator alarms in a unified and consistent user interface. Actuator configuration includes custom characterisation, as well as the ability to import and export historical configuration profiles.
Whether it is viewing value torque profile, live trending data or actionable alarms straight from the actuator, plant operators will be able to access detailed monitoring and diagnostics data, allowing them to take action before a fault occurs. DCMlink offers advanced control and diagnostics, including torque profile curves, initiating partial stroke test or emergency shut down and alarms in NE-107 format. Current communications support included Modbus, TCP-IP, and Bluetooth.
