ICS Complexity Threatens Plant Availability
In production plants, the focus is on availability, occupational safety and process stability. The increasing complexity of production IT endangers these qualities through proprietary configurations and protocols as well as unforeseeable failings of single components.
Both for real-time processes and for predictive maintenance, early reporting of technical error states is crucial. Only this way can overload conditions, communication errors and incorrect configurations be eliminated before production processes are disrupted.
ICS Monitoring To Detect Technical Error States
Technical error states often cause a search for the needle in the haystack. Rhebo Industrial Protector shortcuts the search. The ICS network condition monitoring function reports communication processes that indicate a malfunction in real-time, e.g.:
- increased roundtrip times,
- communication interruptions,
- checksum errors,
- windows size 0.
Overload conditions, physical damage, misconfiguration and the degradation of network performance are immediately detected and the sources of error are directly identified.In addition, Rhebo Industrial Protector assesses the performance of your ICS on a daily basis with a quality score.
Rhebo Industrial Protector supports you to actively:
- secure process stability,
- increase overall equipment effectiveness and
- establish condition based maintenance and operations.
