The ProSys Solution

An operator’s environment and awareness of the process is critical to the overall safety and performance of the plant. Many tests have shown that execution times and errors can be cut by 50% when using a well-designed operator interface. In fact, many process control systems continue to operate with interface features that are far less clear and concise than what today’s technology can provide. This could be part of the reason for many operator errors. ProSys has a solution to help solve this issue, Interface Dynamics.

Interface Dynamics is a human-machine interface (HMI) shape library that supports process-operator interface goals for:

One Display Library

Interface Dynamics was developed to provide operators with a clean, reliable interface. This allows the plant to operate safely by identifying and resolving plant problems quickly and efficiently by identifying areas of operation that are deviating from desired values and encourage operator response. Furthermore, Interface Dynamics can be coupled with AgileOps to enhance the operator’s alarm management experience and reduce the number of operator facing tools.

Overview Shapes

The new shapes enhance its already safe and efficient IDv3 with Variable Bar, Navigation Bar, New and Improved QuickTrends/QuickHourly Standalone Trends and the Embedded Trend Shape. These updates are included in ProSys’ latest version of IDv3 and can be added-on to existing users’ platforms.

Details of the new overview shapes with color configuration using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) include:
