SmartPoint is an intelligent alarm processor built into every LEAKNET system. It is a versatile and powerful way of eliminating false alarms.
A SmartPoint™ is a collection of PPA™ points and MassPack accumulators configured by the user into a logical unit which alarms only when all specified conditions are met. You can build fast and fail-safe alarm schemes, or you can build conservative, false-alarm-free schemes it's up to you. These are easy to change as your needs change.
SmartPoint™ is LEAKNET intelligent alarm processor and is LEAKNET most powerful way of eliminating false alarms.
Each SmartPoint™ operating within LEAKNET is created by defining a logical relationship among a collection of PPA™ and/or MassPack™ points. Any SmartPoint™ can use any PPA™ point and any MassPack™ accumulator, and any other configured SmartPoint™ to create this logical relationship.
Each SmartPoint™ monitors all of its component points to see if the alarm logic of the relationship is satisfied. When it is, a fully qualified alarm is provided for the operator.
PPA™ points, MassPack™ accumulators and other SmartPoints™ may be used over and over to create as many SmartPoints™ as you need.
Configuration of SmartPoint™ arguments is done in a point and click editor window and takes only minutes to complete or edit.
Suppose you want to monitor a simple pipeline running between a pair of pumps and several tanks 20 miles away. There is one instrument, a pressure transmitter, near the pumps. The line has two sources of nuisance alarms: pump changes and tank switches. The following example shows how to use SmartPoint™ in two steps.
First, to eliminate nuisance alarms associated with pump changes.
Pump Operations NEVER create this combination of conditions, so the can NEVER cause a false alarm.
Second, to eliminate the tank false alarms,
The logical argument defines the only condition associated with a leak on the line.
