Download: FeedForward Inc. Implements Environmental and Reporting System

FeedForward was commissioned to help a client transform a time-intensive manual data entry procedure into an efficient automated process. Furthermore, the real-time and historical data needed to be accessed by engineers and management for environmental monitoring purposes. To help out, FeedForward approached Matrikon to provide the connectivity required to make the project successful.

Jim Urban, an applications engineer with FeedForward, was the project engineer responsible for the design, configuration, programming, and implementation of this particular project. The project revolved around being able to move data from a Fisher-Rosemount DCS to Intellution's iHistorian. Ultimately, engineers and managers wanted to be able to view real-time and historical data on their desktop and import that data easily into Excel. Their biggest challenge was the connectivity issue. This is where Matrikon stepped up to the plate to offer the answer. Matrikon's OPC server for Fisher-Rosemount RS3 RNI provided the interface required to connect a Fisher-Rosemount DCS with Intellution's iHistorian.

The project was deemed to be very successful. FeedForward was able to provide environmental monitoring of real-time and historical data via the web to managers and engineers. What was once an inflexible system has become an efficient tool for analyzing and optimizing processes.
