Metso Introduces New Applications to Boost Usability in the Metso DNA Automation System

Metso has strengthened its product portfolio and developed new control applications to improve usability in the Metso DNA automation system. The novelties include tools for alarm shelving and a function test, both continuing Metso's pioneering work in usability applications for process control. Also, an IEC 61850 interface is now available.

To further improve usability in the Metso DNA system, Metso has developed an Alarm Shelving application. With it, the operator is able to temporarily prevent an alarm from being displayed when it is being more of a nuisance. A shelved alarm will be removed from the alarm list and will not show until it is un-shelved.
