Emerson Enhances Data Management Tools with AMS Device Manager Data Server

Aug. 22, 2023
The company’s 5AMS Device Manager adds server technology to expand field device data accessibility and integration for analytics.

Emerson has enhanced its data management tools and the integration of analytics with asset management software. The updates aim to help manufacturers improve performance and sustainability by addressing the challenge of data silos that hinder data integration.

AMS Device Manager Server is designed to securely extend intelligent field device data to external systems. The technology enables reliability and maintenance strategies. Among the key features included:

  • Publishes intelligent field device data to industrial software analytics solutions already in use by customers
  • Eliminates the need for complex custom data integration and manual workarounds
  • Reduces delayed results and siloed data
  • Data is relayed via secure industry protocols.

Accelerating Sustainability, Profitability via Analytics

Traditionally, manufacturers have relied on asset management software to deploy and monitor production assets, including measurement and analytical instrumentation, digital valve controllers and wireless gateways. As facilities have advanced, they have been incorporating a range of analytical tools, historians, machine learning and advanced modeling to leverage previously underused or inaccessible datasets. Integrating these systems and accessing the data from smart field devices has been complex, often with delays and fragmented information.

“To accelerate sustainability and profitability, today’s manufacturers are transforming via analytics—seeking to aggregate disparate, underused data and further exploit it for positive business impact around the organization,” said Erik Lindhjem, vice president of Emerson’s reliability solutions business, in the release.

The AMS Device Manager Server allows intelligent field device information to be readily available in near real-time for integration with existing software and applications, including configuration parameters, alerts, calibration data and other critical instrument and valve data.

The server is compatible with dashboarding tools and applications, so users can import data into platforms such as Microsoft Power BI, Emerson software tools such as the Plantweb Optics platform and Plantweb Insight as well as other solutions such as Aspen MTell and AspenTech Inmation. Integration with plant historians enables users to leverage historical data for analysis and decision-making.
