Improved process control system

The Siemens Industry Automation Division has equipped version 7.1 (Fig.) of its Cemat process control system for the cement industry and associated sectors with multiple new functions. An enhanced signaling and diagnostics concept is designed to reduce plant downtimes as well as operating and maintenance costs, thus increasing plant availability and productivity. Cemat is based on the current version 7.1 of Simatic PCS 7 and offers all the performance features and functions of the process control system, such as APC (Advanced Process Library) and Alarm Control. As regards new maintenance functions, it is the web-client diagnostic information via Web Server for the easy transmission of maintenance data via LAN, SMS or email which takes center stage.

The latest Cemat version is compatible with all previous Cemat versions from version 1.8 going back to the year 1978.
