The Plantweb Insight data analytics platform from Emerson has been enhanced with two new IIoT solutions that will enable industrial facilities to transform the way they manage their enterprise-level wireless network infrastructure. The Plantweb Insight Network Management application provides continuous, centralized monitoring of WirelessHART® networks in a facility, with embedded expertise and guidance for advanced network management.
A key feature of the Plantweb Insight Network Management application is a configurable mesh network diagram, providing visualization of network design and connections along with device-specific information. In addition, it provides an exportable record of syslog alerts, network details outlining conformance to network best practices and more. The Plantweb Insight Power Module Management application drills down to the device level, allowing facilities to keep their wireless devices appropriately powered so they can continuously transmit key monitoring data. Primarily focusing on monitoring key asset health, other applications in the platform include pressure relief valve monitoring, heat exchanger monitoring and steam trap monitoring.
