Configuration of Process Models to full MES

Accord systems are based on models; the PLC control is implemented directly from the model, and model items are then available for visualisation and management, without any coding or scripting. The documentation feature automatically generates Process Descriptions, FDS, and other documents directly from the Model.  

Accord provides all required Scada functionality, with many novel features such as HMI Replay mode, Runtime configurable KPI visuals, and history built-in to each device. All actions and events are automatically recorded, so systems are 21CFR Part11 compliant.  A full independent Audit Trail utility allows review of all system changes and actions, with full filters. 

The platform supports full off-line testing, with a built-in PLC Emulator which can Emulate multiple projects simultaneously and a Simulator which allows Digital input states and Analog Input Values to be changed according to simple configurable rules. The Simulator allows cross project simulation also.

The Accord PLC Library is available for Siemens, Vipa, Mitsubishi and Schenider PLC’s and will be available for Rockwell PLC’s in August 2017.

Accord is designed to increase efficiency in design and implementation of systems for Regulated Industries and is in use in many types of installations.

For Pharmaceutical...

Accord is controlling Purified Water and Concentration systems in Pharmaceutical Plants.

Accord is really suited to Pharmaceutical operations as all operations are monitored and a full independent Audit Trail is provided for 21CFR Part 11 compliance.

Additionally, the Automatic Documentation is suited for cGMP Validation,

For Food and Beverage..

Accord is installed to control Dairy systems for Dryers, Evaporators, Whey Crystallisation, as well as CIP Sets

Accord has been used to implement a Brewhouse, and is very suitable for Fermentation and Filtration systems. Accord controls large Water Bottling plant facilities. In these facilities the  Recipe and Planning modules are used daily to enhance operations.

For Processing...

Accord has been installed to control Industrial Blending and Smelting process plants.

In these installations Plan Manager module is used to safely schedule automatic plant startups.

Full Alarm and Trending controls provide full visibility from start of commissioning.

Free to Try

Accord is free to download and try. The installers are fully functional for Windows 7/8/10.

You could be testing a new fully featured bespoke Scada soon, without writing a line of code…

We release upgrades periodically, and all upgrades are listed in the Recent Changes area.

 

Flexible

The system can be used simply for design and documentation, or for live modelling, or for full implementation.

Installation and licencing is flexible and easy, and all modules have 30-day trial licences.

We are sure you will love it, and it may change your mind about Scada costs..

 

Templates

We add new templates regularly, to assist our new users. All templates are fully functional and may be used immediately.

Equipment device names and settings and Program aspects are easy to customise and a quick guide is included in each template pack.

Unlimited Design

Accord development modules may be used for any number of designs and tests, and most importantly, for repeated automatic generation of design and test documents.

This brings fantastic time saving for system integrators and OEMS.

Fully Supported

Full support is given to users via the website, mail, and phone.

We advise on PLC Hardware selection, Panel PC selection and how to get the best from the Accord Modules.

Services

We regularly configure systems for clients, with commissioning to be carried out by client engineers.

As the framework is transparent there is no ‘style’ to be learnt so client engineers can start to test and commission immediately.

“At a PLC based control system level this certainly appears to be a unique and well thought out product. The combination of accessible configuration menus, novel documentation features complete with full audit trail would make this product suited for use in regulated industries, such as for use in pharmaceutical applications. When used within the Pharmaceutical industry these security, audit trail and embedded documentation features provide the means to comply with the best practice Computer Systems Validation guidance, GAMP 5. It may prove to be very useful in applications involving skid mounted equipment, e.g. CIP, Process Utilities, filtration, solutions preparation, compounding etc. where the process applications require easy but traceable customisation…”
