A six-page full color brochure is available covering ABB’s scalable device management tools: Asset Vision Professional, Asset Vision Basic, Mobility handhelds, and the local instrument HMI (Human Machine Interface).
The first few pages describe Asset Vision Professional, stressing optimization and device management features. This advanced software offers FDT/DTM capabilities, CMMS connectivity and Calibration Management. The brochure claims that this tool increases asset value over life span and shifts maintenance strategy from reactive to predictive. Predictive examples include excessive positioner strokes, plugged impulse lines, sensors out of solution,and out-of-limit variables. Screenshots in the brochure illustrate various operator views.
The brochure notes that Asset Vision Basic is a FDT Frame Application with a modern and uncomplicated graphical interface. This version provides effective basic functionality for the configuration, diagnostics and maintenance of intelligent field devices. Wizards and expert views facilitate instrument setups.
The brochure also discusses ABB's Mobility Handhelds and individual instrument HMIs. The brochure claims that Mobility Handhelds offer convenient, reliable, as well as simple configuration, calibration, and documentation of instruments. The local instrument HMI, on the other hand, provides convenient, reliable and simple local operation without connecting additional tools to the instrument.
The brochure concludes with information on wireless configurations for asset management, using ABB's WirelessHART products. It explains that this technology enables the monitoring of measurements that would otherwise be too costly.
