Launching Automation Monitoring and Control System MICREX-VieW FOCUS Evolution
Flexible System Construction to Fit Customer Issues

 Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce the launch of a new addition to the MICREX-VieW FOCUS Series automation monitoring and control systems for plants, the MICREX-VieW FOCUS Evolution, which is capable of flexible system construction to fit customer issues.

1. Background

 Industrial plants that produce electric or gas energy, iron and non-ferrous metals, and chemicals generally introduce monitoring and control systems to achieve stable plant operation. Those systems must offer convenience that allows the equipment operators themselves to flexibly modify specifications in response to issues on the shop floor and changes in the real world.

 Monitoring and control systems are products that monitor and control plant conditions using data such as equipment operation status and product processing and production information. In 1994, Fuji Electric launched the MICREX-VieW FOCUS series of monitoring and control systems for small- and medium-sized industrial plants. The systems have been installed at many industrial plants mainly in Japan, including steel, chemical, cement, and waste incineration.

 The newly launched MICREX-VieW FOCUS Evolution is a system that has achieved high reliability and allows flexible system construction without specialized knowledge. It also adopts OPC UA, an international standard communication protocol, and it will be marketed globally.

 Fuji Electric will combine this control system with the drive and measurement equipment that industrial plants require and propose solutions that meet customer needs, such as energy conservation, labor saving, and remote monitoring. The company will also strive to expand its overseas plant business, particularly in Southeast Asia and India, which are seeing continuing economic growth.

2. Product Features

1)Enables easy, quick, and flexible system construction

 Fuji Electric has wide-ranging operational expertise that it has acquired through the industrial plants business, and the system incorporates this expertise as control programs, allowing flexible setting of combinations of control methods and devices required for a variety of processes and equipment for all kinds of plants by simple drag-and-drop screen operation.

 In addition, the set combinations of control methods and devices can be stored in the system as application packages, so they can be easily and quickly reflected in different processes and equipment at the same site or other sites, thereby shortening the construction period.

2)Contributes to stable plant operation with a highly redundant system

Storing plant data in multiple operator machines means that, in the event that any of them fail, data can be restored immediately, allowing continuous operation of plant equipment.

3)Uses Fuji Electric’s proprietary database as a standard feature

Fuji Electric has developed a proprietary database that is included as a standard feature, eliminating the need for new commercial database software (such as SQL Server*) and reducing installation costs.
