Because the iZ Data Acquisition software runs in a discreetly partitioned Windows XP environment, it is easily interfaced to provide all recorded data to virtually any plant DCS or MIS software including Wonderware, Intelltuion, RS View, etc. The exclusive Cell Modem technology allows iZ’s compressed air professionals to maintain peak performance in the system for the long term. Additionally, the iZ Data Acquisition software is easily expanded and is very scalable so it can become the backbone for a plant wide data system for all facility equipment such as chillers, boilers, pumps, cooling towers, etc. On line demonstrations of this capability are available upon request.
The Overview Screen is a process flow schematic of the supply system storage and header pressures which displays individual compressor status, power and flow to provide a snapshot analysis of the system’s operation. Total system flow, Power, Efficiency and Pressure are summarized in a table for a snapshot of system status and performance. This particular screen displays the systems triple routine capability controlling 3 separate pressure systems and coordinating them for optimum efficiency and reliability.
The Trending Screen displays a real time or historical graph of all known system parameters including information on system pressures, total power, flow, system efficiency, and other parameters. This will allow the plant to track operating costs, energy consumption, and system efficiency to detect any condition which causes a loss of efficiency or performance.
Edit Group Screen
The Edit Group Screen provides the interface for configuring each pressure system without requiring programming changes in the automation software. Each systems parameters are fully functional from a logic, sequencing, rate of change point of view. All values are available for tuning from this screen to allow each system to setup for optimum efficiency without impact the other compressed air systems in the facility. All values are setup and recorded by iZ technicians during startup but can be easily modified if required with appropriate password protection.
Compressor Setup Screen
The Compressor Setup Screen provides the interface for configuring each compressor in the system without requiring programming changes in the automation software. All required interface parameters including timer settings, pressure limits, etc. are preset by iZ technicians during startup but can be easily modified if required with appropriate password protection. The compressor setup screens are designed to provide the flexibility to configure different types and sizes of compressors without programming changes.
Compressor Diagnostics Screen
The Compressor Diagnostics Screen provides the interface for confirming the status of and testing each compressor in the system. Timer status can be confirmed as well as checking maintenance timers if enabled. The compressor can be taken into manual mode for testing and verification of interface components for proper operation.
Pressure Flow Control Valve Screen
The Love Controller or Pressure Flow Control Screens (quantity not limited) allow the IZ automation to adjust setpoints and tuning on all control valves in the compressed air systems. The graphs of the valves response to process setpoint and process variable allows for the most accurate tuning without control hunt. Note that IZ Systems always provides a separate electronic PID Loop controller for Pressure Flow Control valves because, when the automation is down for service or upgrades, that is when the air system most needs the valve to remain operational.
Analog/System Setup Screen
The Analog screen displays a real time or historical graph of all known system parameters including information on system pressures, total power, flow, system efficiency, and other parameters. This will allow the plant to track operating costs, energy consumption, and system efficiency to detect any condition which causes a loss of efficiency or performance.
