Communication and Software
Siemens offers reliable products for the entire portfolio, from analyzers to interfaces and software. Highlights include our Analyzer System Manager (ASM): This software tool offers all functions, from monitoring analysis systems and optimizing device performance to measured value quality to maintenance planning and even reporting of the most important KPIs
Automated Monitoring and Validation of your Analytical DevicesOur analyzers have standardized field bus communication interfaces, such as Modbus, Profibus, etc. We provide coordinated software tools for commissioning, diagnosis, and remote access. The Analyzer System Manager (ASM) is a monitoring system which helps improve device performance, including measured value quality, and optimize maintenance planning based on the device data. ASM lets you visualize the device performance, evaluate plant KPIs, and establish the basis for predictive maintenance with the aid of data analytics.
The operating and monitoring system Analyzer System Manager (ASM)
The Analyzer System Manager is a PC-system for monitoring, management and optimization of analyzers. The relevant information from different analyzers is collected via various communication protocols and saved in a central database. Using the user-friendly operator interface, it is possible to access measured value trends, device states and statistical evaluations, for example, or to start test routines for validation of the results. With the collected information you can analyze long-term performance developments of your installed base which supports you to predict maintenance need and optimize your service. A comprehensive reporting module with predefined reports is available to document the evaluations.
All information at a glance
Analyzer System Management solution is collecting analyzer data to enable centralized monitoring of analytical systems. ASM allows the users to validate and calibrate manually, semi-automatically, or automatically all analyzers from a central control room. With the comparison and analysis of validation results and using the process values of dosing units and information of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), a reliability and quality can be reached.
Analyzer performance and possible deviations can be monitored and statistically evaluated through individual rule-setting or through usage of ASTM rules. Through long-term analysis of deviation developments possible maintenance need in future can be recognized and service activities can be planned and optimized. Needed functionalities for maintenance planning and documentations are provided through ASM.
ASM provides Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of your installed base such as e.g. availability to the analyzers and displays these in customized reports which can be used for internal reporting. Also occurred warnings of analyzers or open and solved maintenance tasks can be shown beside other views.
ASM integrates analyzers from Siemens and 3rd party products with various communication protocols in Siemens own homogeneous environment. ASM integrates current analyzer measurement data based on standard industrial communication protocols from the analyzer directly, as well as from other Process Control Systems. The scalable system grows along with the customer requirements as ASM projects are adapted to customer specific requirements. A wide spectrum of analyzers with various communication protocols is integrated on a Simatic controller.
