Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

1. System Specification Overview


This specification defines the minimum mandatory requirements for the process
automation system and associated software and support services.
The system shall enable the users to control plant-wide applications throughout the facility,
from batch and continuous processing to high-speed packaging lines within a single
architecture. The architecture should also provide seamless information flow from plant
floor instrumentation.
The process automation system should provide flexibility, scalability and expandability
when solving batch and process applications unlike a traditional closed, rigid system like a
DCS. The system should allow users to incrementally implement plant automation using
only the components needed. When an upgrade or addition to the system is required
components should be easily added.
The process automation system must include the following features traditionally
associated with both a programmable logic controller such as programming in ladder logic
and remote I/O architectures and a distributed control system (such as continuous and
complex control, advanced operator interfaces, and sophisticated redundancy). These
capabilities must seamlessly reside in the control system without the use of special
gateways or interfaces. In addition, the system shall provide seamless integration of
continuous, batch and safety protection control, including common software tools.
The system shall be an open system composed of standards-based technology including
PC platforms with a Windows operating system (supporting XP, Vista, Server 2003 and
Server 2008), Ethernet communications, TCP/IP, OPC for interconnectivity of multiple
systems from different suppliers, field mountable control system, remote I/O subsystem,
and bus-based serial communication with smart field devices over FieldBus, HART,
Profibus, DeviceNet, and Modbus networks.
This specification does not include field instrumentation and management information
systems.

2. System Architecture Requirements


The basic architecture of the system is based upon a distributed "client-server" structure
at the supervisory network with physically and functionally distributed controllers
performing the real-time control and processing operations and separate workstations
and clients providing the human-machine interface (HMI) functions. All of these
elements are to be interconnected via Ethernet with TCP/IP networking software. The
client server structure of the system shall make it possible for the system to operate
even if several components are out of service. Interface with Field devices should be
through dedicated non-Supervisory Networks and support both classic signal conversion
I/O as well as Smart Instrumentation and Industrial control devices. The system shall not
have a centralized architecture wherein a (redundant) central computer is required to
support the overall system operation. The real-time data processing, calculation and
alarm and display functions can be in a single controller or distributed across multiple
controllers. The system shall use a distributed architecture so that no single failure will
disable the total system. Plus, the user shall be able to elect that all or portions of the
system be made redundant, to provide the highest levels of system availability. The
local and wide-area network potions of the system shall be compliant with Ethernet and
TCP/IP specifications. The system architecture shall allow for the use of both LAN and
WAN technology in the same system. The system shall support all media forms of
Ethernet including copper and fiber optic.

2.1.

System Scalability

The system must provide the highest degree of scalability possible so


users only buy what they need open, scalable, and distributed. It
should provide scalable controllers and I/O all with a common design
environment in addition to a scalable HMI solution again with a
common design environment. The need is to provide a highly
Jose Luis Sanchez
WW EMEA GITC

Page 10

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

integrated control system across different control platforms and enable


the control capability to expand from a few loops to thousands.

2.1.1.

Controller Capacity

2.1.2.

I/O Network and I/O Capacity

2.1.3.

Controller Application Capacity

System shall include specification for control network capacity.


If differences exist (in the maximum number of controllers
allowed) between redundant and non-redundant
configurations, vendor shall provide explanation.

System shall include specification for maximum I/O limitations


for controllers. This should include maximums for control
networks, I/O networks, and I/O module (local and remote I/O,
SCADA, and industry-standard control networks.).

System shall include specification for controller application


capacity. This should reflect both single programming language
applications as well as cases involving a mix of control
application strategies. If differences exist (in the maximum
number of controllers allowed) between redundant and nonredundant configurations, vendor shall provide explanation.

2.2.

System Redundancy
The system shall be of a highly reliable design and shall have an
operational availability in excess 99.5% (i.e., annual downtime of less
than 44 hours per year). Operational availability shall be considered to
be met when no more than three operator stations or controllers, in
any combination, are inoperable. The system design shall provide for
non-disruptive repairs of faulty equipment and on-line, non-disruptive
field expansion of the system. Redundancy shall be system based and
modular. This is to provide for selection and implementation of
redundancy as needed both during the development and operation of
the system. This is not limited to but includes redundant servers
(database), controllers, and communications networks. (Controller and
I/O redundancy is covered under the Controller and I/O section of this
document). This redundancy should be capable of being implemented
on-line and without disrupting the system operation.

2.3.

System Expansion

The system shall be constructed to permit implementation and system


expansion in a phased fashion, where the initial system implementation
may be quite small. As requirements grow, the system shall accommodate
the addition of HMIs, front-end computers and field devices, all without
performance degradation. The system shall support field extension of its
network, addition of gateways to the network, addition of controllers and
remote I/O where required, and integration of PLCs and computers into the
system.

2.4.

Software Revisions
Application software shall not require modifications in order to be able
to run under new releases of the system operating software. Any new
release of system software shall be backward compatible with files
created using the previous software releases.

2.5.

System Sever
The system shall be capable of running a pair of similarly configured
servers/workstations in a redundant configuration where at any point in

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Page 11

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

time, one is the acting Primary and the other the acting Backup. An
on-line database duplication mechanism shall be available.
It shall be possible to remove one of the redundant servers for
maintenance without interrupting operation, and upon its
reinstatement, re-synchronize the databases via a push-button on the
screen, again without interruption to system operation. A simple
method of manually initiating a fail-over shall be provided to assist
with such maintenance operations.

2.5.1.

HMI Server
The HMI Server is to store HMI project components (for
example, graphic displays) and serves them to system wide
operator workstations thereby removing the need to create
duplicate copies and maintain them for multiple operator
workstations.

2.5.2.

Data Server
The data server links networks and devices to system wide
visualization and development components such as HMI clients
and engineering workstations. It shall provide communication
services between applications and devices on the plant floor
allowing users to read, write, and configure values in plant floor
devices, such as sensor readings and other system controller
data.
Data servers shall be configurable to run on both a primary
computer and a backup computer. The system should
automatically switch to a backup computer if communication
with the primary computer fails.
The servers should handle failure detection and failovers
automatically for all components (clients) of the system. In a
traditional system (DCS), each client must independently monitor
connections, detect communication failures, and switch between
backup and primary computers. This is not preferred.

2.5.3.

Alarm Server
This alarm server alerts operators to critical alarm conditions
and maintains a record of alarm status for historical access.

2.5.4.

Domain Server
A domain server is to be available that the system utilizes to
manage highly distributed systems.

2.5.5.

Security Server

An available security server should protect against


unauthorized use but still allow authorized users to use the
system efficiently. The security is to be a centralized system
which restricts access to system resources based on key
security components.
The security server shall have the capability to have either
control-system local users/groups or domain-linked
users/groups and the ability to use an existing domain.
The key components that are to be securely managed by the
security server are:
Jose Luis Sanchez
WW EMEA GITC

Page 12

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

2.5.6.

Users and groups of users


Actions, such as read, write, update, and download
which can be performed on a secured resource.
Defined objects in the system, such as areas, data
servers, graphic displays, control networks and
devices, and so on, for which actions are allowed or
denied. Each piece of the system can define its own
set of securable resources and actions.
The computers or groups of computers from which
actions can be performed on a secured resource.

License Server
Electronic software licenses for components are to be managed
by a software license server. Software licenses for engineering
workstations and for operator interface consoles shall be
independent of the type and mixture of I/O used (analog vs.
discrete, input vs. output). The software licenses (both runtime
and engineering) shall be portable allowing the operator to
transfer licenses from one PC to another without requiring
intervention from the vendor.

To help minimize the risk associated with


changes in project scope, if software is licensed
on a tag-by-tag basis, the vendor shall supply
in writing details on how the required software
license would change if the system I/O was
increased or if the mix of system I/O was
modified.

2.5.7.

Historian Server
The system shall have available if needed a historian server
that performs process data collection from the control system.
There should be included a user configurable data collection
functions defining what data is to be collected and under what
circumstances it is to be collected. Users shall be capable of
accessing historical data.
When the system is configured, and as it is adapted over time,
it shall be possible to define classes of information that should
be retained, as well as specific system-level data that should
be collected. As with process historical data, this data shall be
accessed for viewing and for reporting.

2.5.8.

OPC Server
The system must allow for 3rd party connectivity to the system
controllers and to the HMI Server via an OPC interface. This
open connectivity shall follow the OPC Foundation's standards
to get information to or from the system. If the system is
configured for redundancy, OPC communications must
continue even in the event of a HMI or data server failure,
without any extra work required from the 3rd party OPC client.

2.5.9.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Batch Server
A Batch Server must manage batch resources, support batch
production and include system failure detection and recovery,

Page 13

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

and provide system and production communication functions.


It should gather and record system and production information
into a batch event journal for reporting and archiving.
Functions of the batch server should include transforming
configured recipes into executable recipes, allocating resources
based on recipe requirements and, if applicable, operator
input, Managing equipment selection for recipes that require
use of the same equipment in two different parts of a recipe,
preventing deadlock conditions.
An arbitration mechanism should also allow operators to assign
equipment to a particular batch (e.g. acquire ownership of an
available resource and assign its use to a particular batch),
preventing its allocation to another batch. If parallel steps
require the same dedicated resource, the system should
automatically determine how the resources are allocated
among steps when the batch is run, based on criteria
established by the user.
The batch server should support redundant storage. During
runtime, it should continuously journal all actions to one or
multiple disk drives, so that data can be fully recovered in the
event of control system failure. In the event of a primary server
failure, the batch server can be re-started on another
secondary machine and should return to the previous locations
in all active recipes.

2.6.

System Services
System services are services that are utilized across all of the system components.

2.6.1. Distributed Data

Data in the system is to remain distributed in its original,


native environment (e.g. the controller). The data should be
distributed, not duplicated or copied throughout the system
allowing resources (tags, displays, alarms and events, security
settings) to be defined once and shared throughout the
system. The data should be available immediately to every
piece of the system with each being able to locate, browse,
and organize the data and services needed. Resource changes
within the system update immediately across all pieces of the
system.

2.6.2.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Directory Service
There should be present a directory of factory resources such
as data tags, HMI displays, and other plant floor objects that
acts as a lookup service for the data rather than a single,
common database. The directory should be a service that
should provide a searchable reference to data resources stored
anywhere across the system. It shall provide the benefits of a
common database without a possible single point of failure.
Resource names are to be separated from the physical
locations where the resources reside. For example, changing
the location where a data item is stored should not change its
name, and as a result, should not change access to the data
item. Users should be capable of building complex distributed
systems offsite and later deploying the systems at other
locations by simply changing the names of the computers
where the data servers and HMI servers reside. The individual
tag and other resource names are to remain unchanged.

Page 14

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

Likewise, a deployed program can be moved to a workstation,


modified, and then redeployed. In addition, separating the
names of data items from their locations also makes
implementing redundant systems much easier.

2.6.3. Alarms and Events

When alarms or events occur in the system, operators are to


be quickly alerted of the conditions which require immediate
action. Alarms and events are to be detected at the controller
level ensuring accurate identification of alarm sequences,
reduced network bandwidth requirements, and improved
overall system performance. Since the alarm state is to be
managed in the controller itself the state should not be not lost
if the HMI servers fail. Alarms triggered anywhere in the
system shall be capable of being viewed and acknowledged
from any operator workstation in the system.

2.6.4.

2.7.

Security
Centralized access control should be provided by verifying all
user identities, and then by either granting or denying each
users request to access features and resources within the
system.

Networks
The system should utilize the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP) to move data
seamlessly throughout the system. Multiple physical networks, including the
plant, supervisory, control, and device networks should appear as a single
network making communications efficient.

2.7.1. Network Management

Network Management is to provide the ability for the system to


support and manage system wide communications. This shall
include:
Networked field devices
Scheduled and unscheduled I/O control networks
Peer to peer control between controllers
Supervisory control data exchange between controller

and OI

Supervisory control between controller and Batch


Management
Data collection for trends and historians
Production data transfer between the system and Plant
MES software

2.7.2. Supervisory Network


The open technologies of Ethernet and TCP/IP shall be utilized
for communication between the control system server and the
operator stations. The control system server and its associated
operator stations must be capable of connecting to two fully
independent Ethernets run in parallel. No repeater or bridge
connection between the Ethernet is acceptable as a means of
achieving this function. This Network shall be used for
connection of Servers, Workstations and Clients to the
controllers.

2.7.3. Control Network


The process control network/remote I/O network is used to
connect the controller to field (Remote) I/O and shall be an
open, flexible, high performance network.
These networks shall have the following capabilities:
Inherently designed to provide redundancy
Capable of providing control loop updates within 1 sec
Deterministic delivery of process data
Completely open standard with no proprietary content
A producer/consumer network model to optimize network

bandwidth
Communications processing on the network card to
ensure network traffic will not affect server or controller performance

2.7.4. Control Network Redundancy and


Alarming
Failure of any supervisory system shall be announced audibly
and visually via the alarming subsystem.
To ensure maximum reliability, communications shall be
redundant. The communications system shall be capable of
sustaining loss of one media channel without loss of data or
performance degradation. The Bidder shall include the typical
data throughput of his communications system, in baud rate
and number of analog values per second.
Loss of communications shall not cause loss of control at the
local subsystems. Also, loss of a local subsystem (either a
single node or both of a redundant pair) shall not cause the
loss of network communication.

2.8.

I/O
The system should interface with field devices in two ways, via standard I/O, and
through intelligent field devices. The system should offer I/O products for

virtually every application need, from analog or digital I/O that can be
distributed in cabinets and machines around the application or
integrated with the controller itself.

2.8.1. Analog I/O

The analog I/O modules perform the required A/D and D/A
conversions to directly interface analog signals to processor
data values using up to 16-bit resolution. Analog I/O can be
user-configured for the desired fault-response state in the
event that I/O communication is disrupted. This feature shall
provide a safe reaction/response in case of a fault.

2.8.2. Discrete I/O

The system must support discrete I/O modules which have


digital I/O circuits that interface to on/off sensors such as
pushbutton and limit switches and also to on/off actuators such
as motor starters, pilot lights, and annunciators. The discrete
outputs are directly controlled by the state of corresponding
processor data bits and the discrete inputs directly control the
state of corresponding processor data bits.

Jose Luis Sanchez

2.8.3. High-Speed I/O

System shall provide high-speed discrete and analog control


for plant automation applications such as material handling
and packaging equipment which require the ability to perform
sub-millisecond control. System controllers should also
support event tasks which provide event driven control for
applications that require interrupt driven or deterministic input
to output processing. These system capabilities are vital for
complete plant automation requiring raw material handling
with high-speed conveyors and finished goods packaging on
high speed motion applications.

2.8.4. Chassis Based I/O

Chassis-based I/O shall provide high functionality field device


interface capabilities to the system. Networks supported by
chassis-based I/O include DeviceNet, EtherNet, and ControlNet.
Chassis-based HART device interfaces, analog input and output
are available with the option of each channel being set to
voltage, current or current + HART. This shall provide a
versatile communication option which is HART compliant and
utilizes standard wiring / terminal blocks.

2.8.5. Distributed In-Cabinet I/O

Highly distributed I/O shall be supported throughout the


system including rail-based distributed I/O. Distributed incabinet I/O must support EtherNet/IP communication. The
distributed In-Cabinet I/O is to be offered in modular

and block I/O styles. Modular I/O is a system of


interface cards and communications adapters that
interface directly to the sensors and actuators of the
machine/process and communicate their status to the
controller via a communication network.

2.8.6. Distributed On-Machine I/O

The system should offer distributed on-machine I/O which is


locally mounted allowing for high-speed dedicated machine
control. Networks supported by distributed on-machine I/O are
to include EtherNet/IP. Distributed On-Machine I/O is

similar to Distributed In-Cabinet I/O but should not


require an additional enclosure for environmental
protection allowing for much easier maintenance and
troubleshooting. It is the placement of system I/O
directly on a machine rather than housing the I/O in a
remote, central cabinet. Distributed On-Machine I/O
shall provide high-speed dedicated machine control
which should reduced wiring and system costs,
improved Mean Time to Repair, and enhanced control
system reliability.

2.8.7. Intrinsically Safe I/O

Distributed I/O should be capable of meeting the intrinsic


safety requirements for operation in hazardous locations. I/O

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Page 17

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

modules with intrinsically safe barriers built into the I/O are to
be available. These I/O can be distributed in hazardous areas
without the use of bulky explosion proof or purged enclosures
which are expensive and difficult to maintain. The I/O should
have built-in galvanic isolators which reduce terminations and
the size of cabinets.

2.8.8. Conformally Coated I/O

An option to provide conformally coated system I/O modules


that contain protection against corrosive elements shall be
available. The conformal coatings are to be 1-2 mil thick
polymeric films which cover or encapsulate the printed circuit
assemblies. Though generally undetectable by the naked eye,
the conformal coatings are to protect the assemblies from
airborne contaminants and corrosion by sealing out the
contaminants and humidity. This should allow the conformally
coated I/O modules to function in corrosive areas where the
normal I/O modules can not.

2.8.9. Adding or replacing I/O Modules Online

I/O modules should be capable of being added while system


controllers are online. The ability to add I/O online should
make it much easier to make system I/O changes to the system
without affecting the entire system since the controllers do not
have to be taken offline to do so.
It shall not be necessary to remove power or field wiring to
replace an input or output module.

2.9.

Field Device Interfaces and Device networks


The system shall be capable of utilizing these open networks to interface
controllers directly to intelligent field devices: DeviceNet, Foundation Fieldbus,
HART and Profibus. The system shall support a wide assortment of digital process
control instruments including liquid analysis, level, flow, pressure and temperature
measurement instruments.

2.9.1. DeviceNet

DeviceNet should be an open, low-cost option the system uses to


connect to industrial devices and to eliminate costly and timeconsuming hardwiring. Direct connectivity improves
communication and shall provide device-level diagnostics not
available or easily accessible through hardwired I/O interfaces.
Because DeviceNet uses a trunk line/drop line topology, a single
DeviceNet cable shall provide power and communication signal to
all devices on the network. This significantly reduces the amount of
wiring required and greatly simplifies installation.
DeviceNet shall provide the system controllers with a direct
network connection to low-level devices with increased devicelevel diagnostics allowing for troubleshooting, trending and
improved data collection from each device.
Explicit Messaging shall be supported in the DeviceNet scanner
module so configuration, diagnostics, and status can be read or
written from a device on the network by the controller.
Automatic Device Replace (ADR) shall be supported in the
DeviceNet scanner module, so that when a DeviceNet capable
device is replaced on the network, its configuration will be
automatically refreshed to the replacement, by the scanner.

2.9.2. HART I/O

Designed to complement traditional 4-20mA analog signaling,


the HART Protocol supports two way digital communications for
process measurement and control devices.
Analog input cards shall support HART protocol. The inputs
shall allow for 4 HART variables and should work with any HART
compliant field device. It shall be possible to re-range the HART
device from the system and for the system to reflect re-ranging
of the device performed via a handheld. Other HART
information shall be capable of being communicated through
the I/O cards to maintenance packages
Addition of any HART I/O module must be accomplished with
out the disruption of the system. This includes the physical
insertion of a module while the rack is powered. The system
shall be able to read all variables provided by the field device
without the need for any additional wiring.
The system should provide direct access to HART instruments
via the Control and I/O development software. Access to HART
instrument variables shall be available through controller tag
data structures and configuration and calibration should be
accomplished via instrument profiles.

2.9.3. Foundation Fieldbus I/O

Foundation Fieldbus networks shall be available from dedicated


interfaces directly to the controller. The vendor shall provide
intelligent, self-diagnosing linking devices based on Foundation
Fieldbus standards. The HSE/H1 (High Speed Ethernet /
Fieldbus H1) linking device shall be able to support up to four
H1 segments.

The linking device shall allow dual, concurrent


communications with HSE and EtherNet/IP (or Controlnet).
This will allow the use of EtherNet/IP (or Controlnet) for
discrete and process applications and/or HSE for process
and asset management applications on the same network.
The system shall support all field devices
certified by the appropriate standards body for
Foundation Fieldbus and shall not require
additional approvals by the vendor of the host
system. The system shall be able to read all
variables provided by the field device without
the need for any additional wiring. Diagnostic
information shall be available from the field
devices, including device faults, configuration
faults, operating mode, and maintenance
requests.
The system shall provide direct integration and
access to Foundation Fieldbus devices,
Jose Luis Sanchez

including configuration and scaling, via the


Control and I/O development software.

2.9.4. Profibus I/O

The system must support Profibus networking, an open, digital


communication system with a wide range of applications,
particularly in the fields of factory and process automation.
The system shall be capable of integrating directly to a Profibus
PA network via Ethernet (without requiring DP masters or
couplers).
The system shall have an option to connect to Profibus DP
networks via interface cards that fit the system form factor of
the processor and I/O racks.

2.9.5. Intelligent Device Management


Software that is able to configure all intelligent field devices in
the plant, and support the user in managing them, is to be
available. It should be based on the FDT/DTM standard, as this
technology provides engineers with the freedom to integrate
field and communication components supplied by all complying
third parties.
ControlNet, EtherNet/IP, DeviceNet, HART, Profibus and other
field devices that support the Field Device Tool (FDT/DTM)
standard interface specification, including actuators and
transmitters should be capable of being managed by the
system.

a complete set of drawing objects and sophisticated drawing
tools and customizable toolbars, object animation and
command wizards.
The editors application tree shall provide users with a visual
picture of an application. It shall let users see and explore all
the components of the system and make it easy to add, modify
and remove components, and also allows users to browse and
access tags stored in controllers and other data servers. The
display editor should support, but must not require, a custom
scripting engine such as Visual Basic for Applications.

3.2.2. Graphic Displays

The system shall permit configuration of custom graphic


displays. These displays shall be accessible through assignable
user accounts, and using the standard system operator display
navigation functions. Revision of an existing display shall result
in automatic updating of any display servers in the system
scope. The system shall provide detailed documentation of
tags used on custom graphic displays. System shall support

and screens so that the operator can have many display pages active at once. In
this configuration the cursor positioning device (mouse, track ball, etc.) and
keyboard shall be automatically shared and switched to the selected window on
the selected monitor. Transition between windows and screens shall be
instantaneous and user-transparent. Operator options shall include cursor control
devices such as mouse or touch-screen. The normal operations shall be via the
standard QWERTY keyboard of the workstation manufacturer and no other
keyboard shall be required for operations.

3.3.1. Operator Station Redundancy


The system is to support redundant HMI servers, data servers,
and networks. This is to ensure that the data the operators are
viewing is always up-to-date. To maximize data availability and
integrity, the Operator Station shall provide the ability for
configuration of system redundancy. This shall in no way limit
or restrict the use of the client/server configuration and/or
architecture.
Clients shall automatically failover to the backup or redundant
server. This operation shall not require any application
reprogramming or reconfiguration. Client stations shall support
the designation of different primary servers allowing the
network loading to be distributed and to ensure that in the
event of a failure not all clients will experience a switchover.

3.3.2. Operator Station Security


The system shall ensure Operator Station security by
authenticating users against a set of defined user accounts and
access privileges. Project-level security should also be
supported by the system. Levels of security can be assigned
to operator interface commands, macros, database tags, and
graphic displays. Combinations of these levels can be
assigned to individuals or groups of users, giving them
different access to different features. Operator interface
security can also be configured to require user authentication
for critical operations, such as set point changes and recipe
downloads. Operator activity and system changes are to be

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

3.3.3. Area Security

Each operator shall be assigned one or more specific areas of


the plant with the appropriate monitoring and control
responsibility. An area shall be defined in this context as a
logical entity comprising a set of control modules in the
system. This in turn may represent a physical space in the
plant or factory. It shall be possible to define individual
operator access by means of area assignment. An operator
shall only be able to view or control those control modules
within the assigned areas. Each Action taken by an operator
shall be allowed if and only if the operator is assigned to the
function and approved by security level to execute the
function, at that particular time, in that context, from that
location.

3.3.4. Alarm Window

A dedicated alarm line, or Alarm banner, shall appear on all


operator displays showing either the most recent
unacknowledged alarm in the system. The line shall be clear
when there are no unacknowledged alarms for the operator to
process. Each graphic display shall also be linked to an Alarm
Summary graphic that allows for a configurable sort or filter by
priority, and grouping of alarms.
On occurrence of an alarm, the graphic display shall output the
point identification, point type and point description on a
dedicated line. If multiple alarm/change of state conditions
occurs, subsequent messages shall overwrite the display if
they are higher priority. As subsequent alarms are displayed,
the previous alarm information shall move to an
unacknowledged alarm list awaiting acknowledgment by the
operator.

3.3.5. Faceplates

The system should include pre-built and tested graphic


faceplates for control functions such as PID, totalizers, multistate devices, motor starters and drives.

3.3.6. Time Synchronization

The Operator Interface shall be capable of synchronizing its


time with the control system so that there is no more than a 20
msec deviation between input/output events in the field and
being time stamped at the HMI level. The System shall support
connection to a highly accurate time source such as GPS
(Global Positioning System) or DCF77 which can be used as the
time master for the system. Date and time synchronization
shall be possible anywhere in the world using a satellite source
such as GPS (Global Positioning System).

3.4.

Alarm and Event Management


The system shall support a comprehensive alarm detection and management
facility to allow fast and accurate notification to the operator of abnormal
conditions within the process. Alarm monitoring shall be extended to calculated
values and SCADA input values handled by the system. Alarm monitoring shall also
be extended to diagnostic values monitored by the system. Monitoring of source
values and analyzing for alarms shall take place as close to the original source of
data as is practically possible. This software will be responsible for monitoring the
process measurements and status inputs and advising the operator when alarm
conditions are detected in these measurements and status inputs.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Page 25

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

Alarm (and event) annunciation, acknowledgement, and related functions shall be


able to be associated with an individual, responsible operator, user, or group of
users. In this way, operators and users may have their view of points or tags in
alarm restricted to only those alarms associated with points for which they have
been assigned responsibility. This will help to reduce potential confusion caused by
exposing an operator to alarms over which the operator has no control. When
points or tags are assigned to an operator, or group of operators, only the
responsible operator(s) shall be permitted to acknowledge or clear the respective
alarms.
The interface to the appropriate user for alarm presentation and control shall be
via the operators standard navigation screen or specific windows, either
dedicated, or "pop up" (or both). The operator shall have the option to retain an
alarm manager window on his screen at all times, or may invoke the alarm
manager screen as required. Invocation of the alarm manager screens shall be
user configurable and shall include designation of alarm groups and "filter" criteria
for the display (e.g., tag, equipment reference, operator, time window, batch,
process unit, and process area).

3.4.1. Alarm Priorities

The system shall support the ability to configure all alarms


based on their level of seriousness relative to impact on the
operation of the process or system. The system should
support at least four alarm priorities. These priorities are to be
configured as part of the control function blocks as follows:

Urgent
High
Medium
Low

Each alarm type shall be individually able to be prioritized into


one of the above categories. Urgent, High, Medium and Low
priority alarms shall be displayed as such in the system Alarm
Summary. Audible Alarm and Alarm Paging
An audible alarm shall be configurable for each of the above
alarm priorities. Alarms shall be routable to external alarm
hardware (via system I/O) and/or directly to the operator HMI. If
enabled, the annunciators on the operator station shall sound.
The operator station shall be able to use multimedia
technologies (such as .wav files and sound cards) to provide
realistic alarm annunciation. .
The system shall have the capability to send alarms directly to
pagers and email addresses via third-party (Win911) software.

3.4.2. Alarm Detection

Configuring a function block alarm in the controller shall


automatically cause the system to perform the following
actions when an alarm occurs:

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

The alarm shall be time stamped to a resolution


appropriate for the location within the system at which
the alarm condition is monitored or detected (e.g., the
nearest second in the HMI, the nearest processing
cycle timestamp when in the controller or field device).

Page 26

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

The alarm shall be logged in the Event Database with


the Point Name, Alarm type, Alarm Priority, Point
Description, and new value
The PV of the alarm shall turn to a presentation format
(color, object display) associated with the level and
priority of the alarm (e.g., red and flash) on any
standard or custom display which uses the point
An Unacknowledged alarm entry shall be made in the
system alarm summary for Low, Medium, High and
Urgent Alarms or events
The audible alarm shall sound (if configured)
The alarm annunciators indicator shall flash until
acknowledged
Once the alarm is acknowledged and has been reset
the alarm will be cleared from the alarm summary

3.4.3. Alarm Acknowledgment

In addition, the alarm zone of the operator interface shall show


this alarm provided it is the highest priority, unacknowledged
alarm in the system.
The system shall provide for efficient alarm acknowledgment in
a number of ways as follows:
Selection of any parameter tag for the point in alarm
from a custom graphic and pressing the dedicated
acknowledge push-button
Selection of the alarm in the system alarm zone and
pressing the dedicated acknowledge button
Selection of the alarm in the alarm summary display and
pressing the dedicated acknowledge button
By performing a page acknowledge from the alarm
summary display
On acknowledgment by the operator, the flashing indicator
shall turn to a presentation format designated for
acknowledged alarms (e.g., acknowledge color, steady, not
flashing), and the parameter shall remain in that presentation
format on any system or custom graphic. Should the point go
out of alarm before being acknowledged by the operator, the
alarm shall be shown by a designated presentation format and
remain in the list until specifically acknowledged by the
operator.
Alarms shall be configurable to be annunciated by:

Alarm message appearing on dedicated alarm line on


operator interface

Alarm message appearing on alarm summary display

Audible Tone (either using the PC Speaker or a sound


card)

Alarm annunciation shall take advantage of multimedia


technology by providing realistic alarm sounds (via
.wav files).
Alarms shall be annunciated at the station even if there is no
operator currently signed-on. This feature shall be available on
network connected operator stations as long as the computer
running the operator station software remains logically
connected to the network.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

3.4.4. Alarm Logging

All new alarms shall be configurable to be logged on all


alarm/event loggers, written to a disk file in a readable file
format, placed into the active alarm summary display window
and audibly annunciated.

3.4.5. Alarm Navigation

The alarm manager "pop up" support window shall include the
ability to have the alarm manager present the operator with an
immediate means of going directly to the display page which is
required to investigate the source of the new alarms. If a
series of new alarms are received at the operator station, and
all of them happen to be associated with the user-defined
alarm group, the pop-up window shall be pre-set to
immediately call up the graphic display page for that group.

3.4.6.

3.5.

Alarm Archiving
Alarm management functions, including archive recording of
alarms and events, the recording of operator
acknowledgement of alarms, the enable and disable of point
and group alarming, plus the annunciation and logging of
alarms, shall be provided at all operator stations.

Trending
The system shall support three levels of trending: real-time trending, short-term
historical trending, and archive/retrieval of short-term trending for indefinite
periods. System graphics/display builder shall include the creation of "trend
windows" which can be used to pull real-time values from the system and plot
them vs. time on the screen. The trend windows shall be assigned to selected
variables in the database, including measurements, calculated values, manually
inputted data, and binary (discrete, state-based) values.
Operator workstations are to be capable of displaying both historical and current
tag values using trends. At runtime, when an operator opens a graphic display
containing a trend object, the data displayed in the trend can be real-time or
historical. A data server collects real-time data for the trend and historical data
comes from a data log model.
Two types of trend charts are to be available. A standard chart plots tag values
against time, whereas a XY plot chart plots the values of one or more tags
against another tag. For example, the temperature of a tank could be plotted
against time with a standard chart or against the pressure of the tank with a XY
plot chart.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Every operator workstation shall provide viewing for real-time and


historical trend information. Data collected in any historical
package shall be available to all workstations. The system must
support a centralized approach to historical data collection.
The system shall support operator defined sets of trends so that
commonly viewed historical information can be defined in trends
once and easily accessed by selecting a pre-configured screen
target incorporated in the graphic display. There should be no
practical limit to the number of trends that can be defined. Each

HMI/SCADA
Procurement Specification
Document

1. General Requirements
1.1 The operator interface software, herein described as the HMI (Human
Machine Interface), shall be an integrated package for developing and running
automation applications. The HMI shall be designed for use in Microsoft Vista
Business, Windows 7, Windows XP (including XP SP3), and Windows Server 2003
and 2008. It shall use COM, ODBC, OPC, and ActiveX technologies for optimal
performance and integration with other software systems.
1.2 The HMI shall be based on Microsoft user-interface standards. The HMI shall:

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

store all historical data in local and/or an ODBC-compliant database,


support VBA scripting for integration with other Windows products, and
be able to act as an OPC client to allow for data exchange with a wide
range of process
devices.

Page 79

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

1.3 The HMI shall support multiple development environment clients that can have
simultaneous access to the HMI application.
1.4 The HMI shall support multiple HMI servers in an application. HMI servers can also be
redundant.
1.5 The HMI shall support multiple run time clients that can have simultaneous access to the
HMI

application.
1.6 In non-redundant scenarios, the HMI shall support up to two HMI servers hosted on a single

computer.
1.7 In redundant scenarios, the HMI shall support up to one HMI servers hosted on a single
computer.
1.8 The HMI shall provide a common way to defi ne and authorize secured actions on resources
for a set of users or groups and locations.
1.9 The HMI shall allow for seamless integration and interoperability with other Rockwell
Automation products to allow for sharing of tag data without duplication of tag

databases and other functionality.


1.10 The HMI shall provide an Application Explorer for organizing and working with projects. It

shall contain all editors for creating projects and shall display project fi les as they are
created. The HMI shall include a large selection of commonly used graphic objects
and symbols that can be dragged and dropped into a graphic display. The HMI shall
also include a tool that enables adding symbols and addresses created in an AllenBradley PLC-5, SLC 500, or ControlLogix program to a project. All project fi les shall be
in a directory structure that does not mix application fi les (userdeveloped project fi
les) with system fi les, for easy data backup.
1.11 The HMI Application Explorer shall support editing of remote projects from different

computers. This enables the separation of confi guration software and run-time
software which provides a more stable run-time environment.
1.12 All HMI projects should be viewable and editable from the same engineering station

in the application tree.


1.13 The HMI editor should allow for simultaneous collaboration by multiple developers.
1.14 The HMI shall provide a tool to show the status of installed product patch fi le

versions currently installed on a computer.


1.15 The HMI shall provide the ability to design high-level graphics for complex applications

either by using its own drawing editor or by importing graphic fi les from other
drawing packages such as AutoCAD, CorelDRAW and PhotoshopTM. Specifi cally,
the HMI shall allow importing of the following fi le formats: WMF, .CLP, .BMP, .TIF,
.GIF, .PCX, and .JPEG. The HMI shall include, but not be limited to, the following
graphic object animations: position, rotation, size, visibility, color, fi ll, slider, and
touch.
1.16 The HMI shall integrate Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) as a built-in
scripting language to customize and extend applications. The HMI must adopt
Microsofts Component Object Model (COM) and implement COM technology as a
means of exposing open application interfaces to external applications, such as
Microsoft Visual Basic (VB). VBA scripting will handle graphics similar to the way
Jose Luis Sanchez
WW EMEA GITC

Page 80

3/26/2015

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

forms and other graphics are handled in VB. This will allow for access to all the
events, methods and properties of graphical objects and ActiveX controls in the
HMI.
1.17 The HMI shall provide an HMI Server Backup and Restore utility that has the
ability to backup running HMI servers without shutting down and restore servers into
applications.

2. Architecture

HMI
Servers, and both are separate from the confi guration software.
2.2 The HMI shall support data servers as a means to communicate with any OPC
server.
2.3 The HMI clients shall be able to view tag data from any HMI server or data server
in
the application.
2.4 The HMI client shall be able to view displays from any HMI server in the
application.
2.5 The HMI shall support direct access to control information. This eliminates the
duplication of entering tag database information more than once. The HMI shall
support remot 2.6 e editing. Any computer with suffi cient security and the confi
guration software installed can add, change or delete any configuration information
on any computer in the distributed application.
2.7 The HMI shall support a scalable design environment. The HMI shall support the
migration of machine level HMI projects to site level HMI projects.
2.8 The HMI servers shall run as a service and will not have a user interface. This
allows
for secure headless operation and does not require a user to be logged on at the
server.
2.9 The HMI shall provide support to confi gure and interact with the server by using
the
configuration software or the HMI client.

3. Security
3.1 The HMI shall use the FactoryTalk Local Directory and/or Network Directory
provided by the FactoryTalk Security services:

Local Directory: all project elements are located on a single computer


and security information is shared with other participating software
products located on the same computer.

Network Directory: information about project elements and security is


organized for multiple FactoryTalk-enabled products across multiple
computers on a network.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

separate from those in the Local Directory.
3.5 The HMI shall provide a tool to confi gure FactoryTalk Security settings. The HMI
shall provide an optional, s 3.6 tand-alone tool for administering a FactoryTalk
system to do the following:
Create and confi gure application, area, and data server elements in a
FactoryTalk Directory.
Back up and restore an entire directory, an individual application, or
systemwide settings.
Configure options for routing, logging, and viewing diagnostic messages.
3.7 The HMI shall have the ability to allow certain users or groups of users to access
only certain parts of the system. The security shall be based on a series of codes.
Each code shall allow the users or groups of users with security privileges for that
code, to access the HMI commands, macros, graphic displays, OLE verb controls, and
tags allowed by that code. The HMI shall allow assigning individual users
combinations of security codes, allowing each user to access diff erent sets of
features.
3.8 The security system shall use the Windows security system. This will closely
integrate the overall system security model.
3.9 The security system shall allow the use of Windows user accounts and groups.
This enables users to be added and removed from the Windows user groups without
changing the HMI application.
3.10 The security system shall be able to assign each person a user account with a
login name, password, and any desired macros. The desired macros execute on login
and logout.
3.11 The HMI shall have a minimum of 16 diff erent security codes.

Rockwell Automation WW Control Solution Procurement Specifications

4.8 Folders can contain an HMI server, and any number of data servers.
4.9 The HMI shall provide the ability to copy HMI servers between folders without the
need for renaming of components.
4.10 The confi guration software shall support security that enables only valid users
to view and edit data.

5. Communications
5.1 The HMI shall provide full optimization of tag writes to contiguous data held in
devices, to allow quick and effi cient communication on downloads to any OPC
servers that provide write optimization.
5.2 The HMI shall provide communication drivers to Rockwell Automation devices at
no additional cost.
5.3 The HMI shall have the ability to switch automatically to a pre-defi ned secondary
network if the primary network fails at run time.
5.4 The HMI shall act as an OPC client. The HMI shall support both local and remote
OPC connections. During confi guration, the HMI client shall produce a list of all
known registered OPC servers. When functioning as an OPC client, the HMI must be
able to implement the OPC Browse Namespace method.
5.5 The HMI shall automatically scan only required values. When a display opens, the
HMI shall request information on the required points. The display will receive updates
when the value changes until the display closes.
5.6 The HMI shall support directly referencing the tag in the controller. This eliminates
the need to create an HMI tag and greatly reduces the amount of confi guration that
is required.
5.7 The HMI shall support data server redundancy. Any OPC data server can have a
secondary data server associated with it. If the primary server fails, the defi ned
secondary server will take over the OPC connection, providing uninterrupted access
to data.
5.8 The HMI shall support a seamless transition during data server fail-over. The failover will not require any user interaction from the clients.
5.9 The HMI shall support switching back to the primary data server from the
secondary, when the primary data server comes back online. Alternatively, the HMI
can remain connected to the secondary data server even if the primary data server
becomes available.
5.10 The HMI shall aggregate multiple data sources into a single namespace and a
single connection. Clients will not need to manage individual connections to multiple
data servers.
5.11 Once a data server is defi ned in the HMI application, it will be available to all
HMI
clients.

Jose Luis Sanchez


WW EMEA GITC

Page 84

7.2 The tag database shall be organized in a hierarchy, with each level represented
by a folder that can be expanded or collapsed. The HMI shall ha 7.3 ve the ability to
update the current value of a tag from the device to which it is connected, and then
store that value in RAM so it is immediately accessible to all parts of the HMI.
7.4 The HMI tag database shall provide four types of tags: analog, digital, string, and
system. Each tag shall have the ability to receive its data via an OPC server or from
memory. A tag with OPC as its data source shall receive its data through any
respective OPC server. A tag with memory as its data source shall receive its data
from a value table and can be used for local storage purposes.
7.5 The tag database shall provide the ability to generate tag names consisting of up
to 256 characters. The tag names shall be able to contain the following
characteristics: A through Z, 0 through 9, underscore ( _ ) and dash ( - ).
7.6 The tag database shall provide the ability to enter a tag description, minimum
value, maximum value, scale, off set, and units (if analog), on and off labels (if
digital), initial value, security access code, and alarming description.
7.7 The tag database shall provide the ability to duplicate, edit, and delete any
individual tag or folder of tags.
7.8 The tag database shall have the ability to selectively import tags from an AllenBradley PLC/PAC database. Tags imported in this way shall be copied into the
database and shall not be shared with the source PLC database.
7.9 The HMI shall have the ability to modify the tag database while a project is
running. That is, it shall be possible to add a tag in the run mode to the database
(with alarming, data logging, and displays all active) without stopping the project.
