What is the best way to view your Siemens Power Plant Automation logic diagrams in a secure, web-based environment that can be accessed from any computer connected to the internet?

SPPAview
SPPAview is a web-based service that presents SPPA-T2000 (TXP), Simadyn, and SPPA-T3000 Engineering data created on their respective Engineering Stations (ES). This data is extracted from the ES and loaded on the SPPAview server and converted to web-based information. It can then be accessed by multiple clients, allowing an authorized person with an internet connection to view the logic diagrams on a standard browser.

System Features
Microsoft Internet Explorer browser is used for presenting SPPAT2000 (TXP), Simadyn, and SPPA-T3000 logic diagrams on remote clients - no additional installation is required on the client. Displayed diagrams have extensive navigation functionality, access to the elements (function blocks) properties and parameters, and printing functions. SPPAview further provides data overview functionality with hyperlink navigation and can be used as a source of enhanced SPPA-T2000 (TXP) / Simadyn / SPPA-T3000 documentation.

System Features
Complete set of system manuals is easily accessible on the server with searching capabilities. Hyperlinks from SPPA-T2000 (TXP) and SPPA-T3000 function blocks to standard system manuals (function block descriptions). Off-line versions of the logic can be generated and downloaded to client. This version can then be viewed without access to the server. Data available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The server provides desired data availability, access protection, and reliable hardware, together with regular data backup which further assures adequate data security.

TXPVIEW Comparison Tool Features


Two revisions (different dates) of the same project can be compared with this tool. This allows the user to know what exactly has been changed in the code (if anything at all) from one date to the next. A summary report can be run to check for any differences at all More detailed reports can then be run, explaining the exact differences by diagram, block, connection, etc. The detailed reports are hyperlinked to the actual diagram, where the differences are highlighted for easy identification An off-line report can also be run, generating a zip file of all differences, including the diagrams with highlighting
