#EnhancedConnectivity – Using the digital twin with HART


When P&ID schemes are not up to date, maintenance, planning, and purchasing processes all suffer the consequences. An online comparison between software and field devices allows data to be checked and deviations to be identified. By tapping the pre-existing HART enabled devices, even in very old systems, we provide the enhanced field data with no effects on the running system.
In addition, the whole concept can provide asset monitoring data.

Key Takeaways

  • Following newest NAMUR trend “NOA”
  • Technology update for brownfield sites
  • Safe “side channel” for older plants
  • How to use unused data in the field
  • Full data access without description file handling
  • Compare your real plant with your documentation
