synTQ RT (Runtime) has been developed to enable the cost effective deployment of a distributed PAT Data Management architecture in a manufacturing environment. From a day to day operational point of view in a manufacturing environment, synTQ RT is as capable as the fully featured synTQ FM product in that it can interface to multiple instruments, MVA packages and control systems as well as run multiple simultaneous unit operations. In a manufacturing environment you do not normally require the synTQ client or the need to configure the Orchestrations, (PAT methods). The output data is normally displayed on the screen of a SCADA or DCS, and the Orchestrations have been pre-developed using synTQ FM or Optimal approved engineers. Should a client be required then this can always be added, and when synTQ EM is used as the overarching PAT manager, then pre-configured Orchestrations can be downloaded to suit the process that is going to be run. This means that your low cost deployment systems effectively become fully flexible. synTQ RT typically runs on an industrial PC, embedded in a control panel alongside your PLC or DCS, and as such runs in much the same way as a traditional control system.
In line with all versions of synTQ, synTQ RT is vendor neutral. Provided that the device requiring connection has a communications interface and a known protocol, synTQ RT can connect to it. You are not forced to use any specific vendor’s control system, instrumentation or indeed Multivariate Analysis(MVA) package – you are free to select these, creating a “best of breed” solution. And as your systems evolve, synTQ’s multi-vendor connection capability allows you to easily add new instruments to the system taking full advantage of the latest and optimum MVA, instrumentation and control technologies.
Although designed for a manufacturing environment, synTQ RT will work equally well in any other environment requiring a PAT Data Management system – especially so when used in conjunction with synTQ EM. Models developed in any synTQ version can be run in synTQ RT, this ensuring best use of all your time investment in model building and of course your company’s IP.
In Summary synTQ RT provides a cost effective route for deploying a distributed PAT Data Management system in a production environment.
