Whats New? User Account Synchronization Rename and Replace with DeltaV Add Device Type with DeltaV Multiple PlantWeb Alerts per Category Windows User Accounts Non-Responding and Unknown Devices Only Foundation Specified Files Client SC Station Count Tag Count SQL 2005 HELP | About Microsoft Operating Systems DeltaV Zone Message SureService Registration Utility
User Account Synchronization DeltaV adds new DeltaV users to the AMSDeviceManager security group AMS Device Manager polls DeltaV for the currently logged in user; allowing AMS Device Manager to always be in- synch with DeltaV
User Account Synchronization When Enable Automatic Login… is selected –The AMS user always matches the DeltaV user –The current DeltaV user is automatically logged into AMS Device Manager when AMS Device Manager is launched from the Windows Start Menu –It is not be possible to change the AMS Device Manager user from within AMS Device Manager It will only change if the DeltaV user changes
User Account Synchronization When Enable Automatic Login… is not selected –The current DeltaV user is logged in as the AMS Device Manager user if AMS Device Manager is launched from a DeltaV Application (in context or not in context) –The user is prompted for user ID and password when AMS Device Manager is launched from the Windows Start Menu –The logged in AMS Device Manager user can change without the DeltaV user changing –The AMS Device Manager user does not change if the DeltaV user changes –The user timeout function is enforced
Rename and Replace with DeltaV Prevent the user from manually renaming the AMS tag within AMS Device Manager for a device on the DeltaV hierarchy Changing this option is tied to the AMS Device Manager Admin privilege and is a system wide setting.
Add Device Type with DeltaV The AMS Device Manager utility distributes the device files to the other AMS Device Manager stations for HART and FF. –If one of the AMS Device Manager stations is on the DeltaV ProPlus, DeltaV then pushes the device files to the other DeltaV stations for HART and FF AMS Device Managers Add Device Type does not perform any licensing checks –The customer can run it whether or not AMS Device Manager is licensed
Multiple PlantWeb Alerts per Category The same device can have simultaneous alerts of the same category (Failed, Maintenance, and Advisory)
Windows User Accounts DeltaV user accounts use Windows passwords Administrators do not have to assign another password to these users When users login directly to AMS Device Manager, they will use the same password as they do for DeltaV
Windows User Accounts In order to do this, it is necessary for users to recreate their AMS Device Manager accounts in Windows The use of Windows logins (passwords and IDs) is optional
Non-Responding and Unknown Devices Distinguish between device non-responding and device unknown (device not added to database because of license limit)
Only Foundation Specified Files Required The device developer is only required to supply the registered DD file If they do not supply an AMS merge file, Window resource file, DDinstall.ini file, map file, or device icon for EDDL devices, Emerson provides a generic version of these files In this case, the user will have a subset of the typical AMS Device Manager functionality for the given EDDL device Features supported are configure, status/diagnostics, process variable, Audit Trail, and Alert Monitoring screens
Client SC Station Count Supports licensing 131 Client SC stations, in addition to the Server Plus station Tested to support up to 20 concurrent Client SC stations
SQL 2005 AMS Device Manager v9.0 only works with DeltaV 9.3 –This is due to SQL 2005 Compatibility with DeltaV 8.4 and/or 7.4/7.3 systems is supported for stand-alone deployments only
HELP | About Displays the Number Registered Tags, Number of Licensed Tags, Number of licensed stations and Number of configured stations.
HELP | About Added a Print button to print out all licensed options, number of registered tags, number of configured stations, current AMS Device Manager version.
DeltaV Zones Message Message displayed when attempting to launch a device conditions screen from a DeltaV Operator station located in a different DeltaV zone from the device
SureService Registration Utility AMS Device Manager makes available (via Generic Export) the following system profile information for inclusion in the Guardian product support service: –Number of registered HART and FF devices –Licensed system interfaces (e.g. DeltaV, HART Mux, etc.) –Version information
Support Different Macro Cycles The device FHX file contains information so DeltaV can support cascade loops with sub- schedules running at different macro cycles
Microsoft Operating Systems Supported on Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server
