ProSys released the latest version of the company’s flagship software, AgileOps v2.3, an alarm management software.

The new release allows for flexible server-based platforms that eliminate outdated silos between multiple product solutions within operations — for any control system on industrial applications worldwide.

To enhance Foxboro connection, AgileOps now offers a Simplified Configuration by obtaining CP information through the AIM API. Also, added support for Foxboro MessageLogger allows Historical Events to be captured by providing .msgs files.

In addition, Alarm Template Specification for Conditional Application is now available through a new optional field, Application Criteria. When the expression provided in this field evaluates to true for a branch, and the branch is eligible for application by the Alarm Definition, it will create the alarm.

Other key aspects include:
• SQL Maintenance Plan – Maintain six months of database backups and an appropriate log file size.
• “Managed” Result in a Read-Only Audit/Enforce Approved Alarms Report – “Managed” alarm property now available in the read-only audit configuration of the report.
• Web App Impersonation – Can now be hosted on a separate server from the one hosting the AgileOps DataFramework Service and have the user permissions propagate properly in inter-domain scenarios.
• Customize System Reports – New option, “Format Export”, to customize the format of the output by taking the form of an xml file used to specify the formatting of the report to be generated.
• AutoDiscovery Performance Improvement – A necessary SQL operation during the “Data Updates” phase of AutoDiscovery has been optimized, improving system performance.
• ABS for DM Arithmetic Block – New arithmetic block, Absolute Value (ABS), now available for Selection Logic in DM, which provides an output which is the absolute value of the input.
• Demotion of Approved Alarm Property Values via Alarm Index Imports – Users can now demote approved alarm properties via the Alarm Index Import.
• Description Display on DM Workspaces – The title at the top of a DM workspace now includes the configured description.
• Filter for Assign Selected Branches Dialog – In MCSD, Assign Branches page can now filter and sort the System and Description column to help you more quickly find the System you’d like to assign.

AgileOps is a unified process control execution environment that allows the user to take command of their plant and control systems to meet real business needs. This solution unifies control of multiple application modules through a single interface and gives the user broad functional capabilities through a series of optional application modules.
