Title (EN) LIVE DEVICE GRAPHICAL STATUS TREE
(FR) ARBRE D'ÉTATS GRAPHIQUES DE DISPOSITIF EN DIRECT
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method is provided for storing hierarchical inputs for a field device in a control system, including upper level inputs in the form of data relating to the process under control, received from a plurality of input devices, and lower level inputs generated by the field devices using the upper level inputs. A record of dependencies among the hierarchical inputs is maintained, along with the status of each of the hierarchical inputs, which is transformed into a graphical status tree representation thereof, including the dependencies shown as one or more hierarchical flow paths. The status of the hierarchical inputs in the graphical status tree is identified by applying a visual marker to inputs having a normal status, and applying other visual markers to inputs having an error status to highlight erroneous flow paths.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un système et un procédé de stockage d'entrées hiérarchiques pour un dispositif de terrain dans un système de commande, comprenant des entrées de niveau supérieur sous la forme de données concernant le processus sous contrôle, reçues à partir d'une pluralité de dispositifs d'entrée, et des entrées de niveau inférieur générées par les dispositifs de terrain à l'aide des entrées de niveau supérieur. Un enregistrement de dépendances parmi les entrées hiérarchiques est maintenu, conjointement avec l'état de chacune des entrées hiérarchiques, qui est transformé en une représentation d'arbre d'états graphiques de celles-ci, comprenant les dépendances représentées sous forme d'un ou plusieurs trajets de flux hiérarchiques. L'état des entrées hiérarchiques dans l'arbre d'états graphiques est identifié par application d'un marqueur visuel aux entrées ayant un état normal, et application d'autres marqueurs visuels aux entrées ayant un état d'erreur pour mettre en évidence des trajets de flux erronés.
