RemoteView Operator Interface Software for 505/505XT

Woodward’s RemoteView software program functions as a remote operator control panel and/or engineering station with the 505 or 505XT steam turbine controls. Once loaded onto a remote computer or touch panel, this software program allows the computer or touch panel to perform all of the 505/505XT front panel display functions (monitor, operate, tune, and configure). Password-based login level security allows users to manage what functions they want the remote panel user to have.

RemoteView Operator Interface Software provides Human Machine Interface (HMI) capabilities for 505 and 505XT steam turbine control systems, and is designed for operator control and annunciation in either control room or local control applications. Integral remote access capabilities allow flexibility in a variety of applications.

RemoteView uses a powerful PC-based HMI environment to provide a graphical and intuitive interface for the 505 and 505XT controls. This software program displays all parameters required for operation and service of 505/505XT controllers. An operator or engineer can graphically view operating inputs, vary control set points, issue Run Mode commands, and view trends and event logs of turbine and control parameters.

Either as a full-time operator station or a special-purpose tool, RemoteView releases all of the power and flexibility of the 505/505XT controller.

RemoteView software may run on any PC that meets the specified requirements, thus allowing a variety of packaging options. It can be installed on a permanent computer in a control room for true operator interface, or it may be a rugged industrial touch panel mounted on the turbine deck for local operation, or it could be a laptop computer used by the instrumentation engineer for troubleshooting. The display’s graphics were designed to be suitable for use with a touch-panel computer.

The RemoteView configuration is transparent to the user. It dynamically extracts the configuration parameters from the 505/505XT control system and automatically shows only the relevant functionality and screens. No matter what the 505 or 505XT configuration, no RemoteView screen configuration is required.

The RemoteView software program’s password selectable modes are:

  • Operate
  • Service
  • Configure

If the RemoteView program user is logged in using the “Monitor Only” mode, then the RemoteView does not accept user commands and just functions as a system monitor that only displays the connected 505/505XT controller statuses and respective control loop values.

If the RemoteView program user is logged in using the “Operator” mode, then this program mimics the 505 or 505XT’s front panel display during normal operation, allowing the user to monitor as well as operate and adjust all 505/505XT “run time” control modes. In this mode of operation, the 505 accepts commands from the HMI.

If the RemoteView program user is logged in using the “Service” mode, then the user is allowed to monitor, operate all 505/505XT “run-time” control modes, and dynamically adjust all PID dynamic settings.

If the RemoteView program user is logged in using the “Configure” mode, then this program allows the user to remotely view and configure the 505 or 505XT’s functionality. Note that the 505 must be in its “shutdown” state for users to perform configuration changes.
