Integrated Platform for Process Systems.
Accord systems are built using a framework to provide efficient engineering and to allow system improvements to be quickly implemented.
Accord provides full Scada functionality, including unique functions for process reporting and review.
The configuration method and built-in automation quality reduces development times for projects and allows easier maintenance.
Accord contains integrated HMI, Reports, Recipe and Plan Management which are managed by Server.
Accord can be hosted on single PC or networked on LAN or VLAN.
Accord uses Modelling and configuration instead of coding, with better consistency and efficiency over standard PLC / HMI systems.
Accord provides automatic PLC implementation of the process Model, with common source for all engineering data, so there is no tagging, scripting or query building required.
Model: Equipment and Program configuration for common devices and requirements
Server: Security, Communications, Logging are all centrally managed.
HMI: Equipment and Programs linked to fully configurable faceplates.
Reports: Programs and Devices are automatically available for inclusion
Plan and Recipe Managers: Programs, Setpoints, Selections are all automatically available in the modules.
Design and Test documents, to GAMP style, may be automatically generated
Accord Builder provides a transparent framework for S88 Type systems
Accord contains many built-in features for well managed systems:
SQL Historian, for logging of all Values, Alarms, and activity
Multiple HMI Clients, with easy install and connect.
Audit Trail, for all Operations, Events and Alarms ( CFR compliance ).
Process Checker, with drill-down diagnostics.
Replay Mode, for graphical process review on HMI
Snapshot Reports, for full Plant Status and Values for handover meetings.
Redundancy, (Hot Standby), for Server module .
Sync, of system process setpoints and values for easy backup.
Code Free environment, for easier maintenance and modifications.
Process Description and Test Documents, automatically generated.
Process Emulator and Simulator, for Training and Simulation.
Active Directory Integration, for secure Windows integration
Audit Trail for Model Building, for project progress
Archiving of Historian records, with scheduler for off-peak Archiving
Unique HMI Built-In Functionality
Accord HMI automatically provides easy access to associated aspects when an item is opened.
The following are only a few examples of the Built-In HMI features
