What is a mesto DCS?

A distributed control system (DCS) is a control system that typically governs a manufacturing system, a process, or any other dynamic system. In a distributed control system, the controller elements are distributed throughout the system rather than being located centrally (like the brain), with one or more controllers controlling each component sub-system. Networks connect every controller in the system, allowing for communication and monitoring. To monitor and manage dispersed equipment, DCS is a very general word that is utilized in many different industries.

In this article, we are going to discuss DCS developed by Metso

An industrial machinery firm from Finland by the name of Metso Oyj specialised in offering technology and services to the mining, aggregates, oil and gas, recycling, pulp and paper, and other process industries.

Metso DNA automation system

The DNA automation system was modified by Metso. A function test, an IEC 61850 interface, and tools for alarm shelving are among the improvements. Alarm shelving momentarily conceals bothersome alarms A product called Alarm Shelving has been created by Metso. It enables the operator to stop an alarm from being shown for a brief period of time when it is only causing a nuisance. An alarm that has been shelved will no longer appear on the alarm list until it has been un-shelved.

The user can define the length of the shelving time, remark on the alarm, and shelve it in the program. Until they expire, the shelved alarms are concealed in the user interface. An enhanced function test For the purpose of evaluating control applications, Metso has improved its function test. It resolves both control and process disruptions by displaying the function block diagram with real-time values from the operating environment, whether it be actual or virtual.

There is an IEC 61850 interface. The IEC 61850 interface, an international standard data communications protocol with a number of services targeted at all substation protection and control requirements, is accessible with Metso DNA. Metso controllers can use event-based reports or cyclic polling to collect data from IEC 61850 server devices. The IEC 61850 server devices can also receive data or commands from them. According to the IEC 61850 standard, the client offers a native IEC 61850 interface. When the ACN node starts, ASCII files from the backup node are loaded, defining the configuration of the IEC 61850 interface in Metso DNA.

Metso DNA Machine Monitoring assesses and analyses machine mechanical condition and performance using vibration readings and other machine characteristics. DNA Machine Monitoring offers vital machinery protection and diagnostics tools, as well as condition monitoring and analysing tools for predictive maintenance. Online machine condition monitoring allows for 24-hour monitoring, allowing for the quickest possible response to problems in order to ensure plant availability, safeguard assets, offer information for maintenance planning, and improve workplace safety.
