OSL streamlines event logging and reporting processes. Using automated event tracking within a robust framework, OSL gives you complete control over the configuration of your asset register and includes options to develop customised categories and hierarchies to log events and issues either directly or through integration with PI or another OPC based plant interface.
Built on technologies including Java, XML and RESTful web services, Sentinel delivers a high degree of flexibility, making the configuration and import or export of data between modules and other business systems simple and efficient. As a result, all Quorum modules can be deployed individually or as integrated solutions.
All Quorum products share a central design ethos, utilising a proven framework of tried and tested service modules to manage core functions including alerts, security and communications interfaces delivering more robust systems with a common look and feel throughout.
Industry Standard Interfaces
Sentinel can retrieve and store data originating from any OPC compliant plant historian or SCADA system, and can be configured to validate and update vital indicators automatically. Data from the Sentinel database can be exported on demand to a range of other systems and reporting tools in a number of formats including CSV and XML.
Future Proof Models
Because Quorum software uses configurable XML models to perform key calculations for critical functions like availability forecasting and financial settlement, it is highly flexible and easy to maintain. Unlike tools such as Excel, Sentinel creates a separation between the calculations and other elements of the application. This means that each element or calculation can be upgraded independent of the others, making your system flexible, durable and reliable.
Any of the datasets stored within Sentinel can be made available to third party systems via a web service. This enables interrogation of spot or half hourly values using established tools.
Sometimes events don’t follow a plan. Sentinel Alerts highlights exceptional events and conditions, routing information to those best placed to respond. Delivery via the Sentinel desktop, email and SMS ensures that nothing is missed.
Business Process Automation
In auto-mode, routine tasks like EDT submission and BOA acceptance can be triggered automatically when specific conditions are met, streamlining your processes, reducing the risk of human error and freeing resources to manage trading and operations. Sentinel allows you to focus skills and resources on the issues that need the talents of your team, maximising productivity, responsiveness and performance.
LDAP is utilised throughout Sentinel to manage access to the features and functions required by each user. Permissions for viewing, editing and submitting data can all be configured by user or role.
