Features

Seamless connection to information systems

In order to increase the operation rate and productivity of a plant through mutual connection among information systems such as reports, production planning and process management, TOSDIC™-CIE DS/nv system provides an open environment for application development. In addition, the de facto standard OPC interface is supported to realize the seamless connection to information systems.

High-level maintenance supported by station monitoring

EWS is a station monitored by TOSDIC™-CIE DS/nv system, thus equipment troubles such as node down are detectable by OIS-DS, like the other stations. The reduction of MTTR (Mean Time To Repair) contributes to high operation rate of the whole plant.
