A typical controls conversion project includes the following steps:
Analyze Inputs. Emerson engineers first assess I/O counts and types, NET 90/INFI 90 function blocks, and application complexity. They verify that proposed DeltaV hardware and software meet the project requirements.
Project Kick-off. Emerson personnel participate in a project kick-off meeting to review project scope, deliverables and schedules.
Agree on Standards. Develop project configuration standards; for example, module naming conventions and whether to use Emerson’s standard module library or specify modifications to certain modules.
Convert Loop Structures. Applying pre-defined library module templates for common Bailey loop structures, engineers automatically generate new DeltaV control modules. They use graphical loop representations to generate modules for complex loop structures. The resulting DeltaV modules database is then ready to download.
Develop Configuration Solutions. Applying NET 90/INFI 90 and DeltaV systems expertise, engineers convert user-defined code, ladder logic, batch controls and special purpose blocks to functional equivalents in the DeltaV system.
Test. Download the complete DeltaV database and perform a functional test of each module type using simulation.
By having Emerson transition your configuration, you keep your own staff’s valuable attention focused on site priorities. The control conversion service expertly configures your new controllers, minimizes conversion risks, and maximizes engineering efficiency. The resulting DeltaV modules preserve the engineering of your Bailey system configuration and enable you to take advantage of the very latest in process automation technology with your DeltaV system.
