ADROIT software from NHP Electrical Engineering incorporates Plant VCR, a feature which instantly replays chosen sequences of plant automation history using on-line mimics.
This enables users to view events in context, without needing to analyse large quantities of data.
Users can select the timeframe they wish to view then play, rewind, fast-forward or pause using on-screen controls similar to those on a household video recorder.
Multiple mimics can be viewed simultaneously, with varying or synchronised start times.
Plant VCR's graphical displays can be used in conjunction with trends and mathematical data to provide in-depth analysis of events.
No extra configuration is needed as the feature is a standard component of Adroit SCADA software.
