    Did you know that… trigger elements in Movement Automation can be used to start or stop sequences automatically? Triggers are a special type of Blending and Movement Automation (BMA) element. They are used to monitor configurable conditions and when those conditions are satisfied, the trigger commands the associated task sequence to perform a path state transition (e.g. lineup, throttle flow, full flow, gravity flow, stop flow, closeout).

    Use of Triggers in BMA Movement Automation

    Triggers are BMA equipment elements; they are an equipment type of their own because they fulfill the unique function of monitoring configurable conditions, and when these conditions are satisfied, the triggers are able to command path state transitions. They represent internal software entities, instead of physical equipment in the field.

    Trigger elements are designed to mimic the behaviour of task monitoring conditions, with some differences. Conditions including Date/Time, Tank Level, Tank Volume, Tank Limit, Stop Gauge Level or Volume, Task Status, and

    Honeywell would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their continued loyalty to Honeywell’s Advanced Solution Support services. Our goal is to deliver best in class global services that maintain and expand the advanced solution benefits at your facility.

    Holiday Season Greetings to all of our Advanced Application Benefit Guardianship Program (BPG) customers and continued success in 2013.

  • more, may be configured on a trigger element. The conditions Task, Operator, Target Volume and Target Flow, that may be assigned to tasks and sequences, do not apply to triggers.

    Triggers are associated with task sequences, either manually during order creation or through association with other elements in the piping network. In both cases the triggers appear as associated elements on the path as soon as path selection has been completed.

    There is no limit to the number and type of possible triggers that can be associated to a path. Multiple Simultaneous conditions are supported. A path could for example have a single start full flow trigger and several stop flow triggers.

    Trigger monitoring occurs at the same time as the sequence start and stop condition monitoring. The first condition that is met will be acted upon. For example, say that a sequence is configured with a stop condition that will stop flow at a specific date and time, and the same sequence includes a trigger that is configured to stop flow on a high tank level. If the identified tank reaches its high level before the stop condition date and time, the sequence is stopped.

    In the same manner as in task monitoring, where individual monitoring conditions can be set up as non-persistent (once off) or persistent (repeatedly triggering on every rising edge of the condition becoming true) triggers can be persistent or non-persistent.

    Non-persistent trigger conditions monitor until a rising edge is followed by a falling edge. The trigger is set to MET at the rising edge and set to NOTMET at the falling edge, as shown in Figure 1 below. A non-persistent trigger can be restarted by clicking the START button on the Trigger Detail or change zone.

    Figure 1 – edge Triggering of Triggers and the effect of Configuring Persistence

    Triggers can be preconfigured as part of the normal Movement Automation configuration procedures.

    They can also be fully reconfigured from the Trigger Detail - Conditions tab, if access is provided. Standard Experion Asset based security determines who can see and access a trigger's configuration.

    Profit Suite

    Installing Profit Suite R400 on experion R400 e-APP…

    When installing Profit Suite™ R400 on Experion® R400 E-APP, please note that RC_Proxy and DQ_Proxy should be copied from _ C:\HWIAC\Databases\CLFiles_to to C:\ProgramData\Honeywell\Databases\CLFiles.

    This needs to be done if using TPN Server with Native Windows Graphics DCS Option.

    As Experion R400 E-APP has a W2008 Server Operating system, the TPS path in the registry has changed from c:\HWIAC to C:\ProgramData\Honeywell

    Please note that this issue is only seen for Profit Suite R400 and has been fixed in Profit SuiteR410 Installation DVD.

    ACMI 2.2 Patch 3 

    There are no PARs addressed in this patch. The Import tool R2.2 Patch 3 must be installed after you install ACM R310.1 Patch 22.

    New Alarm and event Analysis (AeA) Patch is available.

    Alarm and event Analysis (AeA) R310.1 Patch 17

    The patch fixed cube processing ensuring counts in OLAP reports match the SQL database. The differences were caused by data deletion. Now, after deletion, cubes are scheduled for full process to ensure the correct count. HM collector was also fixed and EJC collector was improved to eliminate the significant delay in data collection.

    There are enhancements implemented for Yokogawa, Foxboro, and DeltaV collectors.

    Documentation updates include:

    The following sections are updated in the AEA 310 Installation Guide:

    • Updated section 2.13 Collecting Data from Other Control Systems The following sections have been added in the AEA 310 User Guide:

    • Updated section 2.6 AEA collector and Alarm Manager • Added section 3.7 Configuring Yokogawa collector

    All AAM patches are available via the Honeywell Process Solutions support new website https://www.honeywellprocess.com. Login use the same login as before. Navigate to Support, Product Support, and then search for the product (e.g. Alarm and Event Analysis), then select the release version, and then go to the software download.
