The process control system Aprol R 4.2 from B&R Automation, contains numerous software functions, including improved cloud communication via OPC UA and MQTT. The software functions help to optimise the efficiency of plants and processes, e. g. by means of asset performance monitoring, further condition monitoring features, an extensive business intelligence solution and optimised alarm management. The process control system has also been expanded with more features such as a PID tuning block based on the finite frequency method. The control system comes with a “dark style“that is said to give the operator a clean, modern interface and to make operation easier. The overall state of a process can be viewed in a radar chart. A full range of redundancy options at every level are now integrated as standard features of the system.
