As part of our 2017 Workshop, we spent an evening at the Wrigley Mansion celebrating 25 years of Lin and Associates, Inc!  It was fantastic to mark this monumental achievement with our clients and friends who have supported us throughout the years.

Thank you to everyone who attended (and those who attended in spirit!)

Lin & Associates is proud to announce our newest version of ALTIUS “HI-Performance HMI Solution” v. 5.3 Patent Pending! Gear up with our latest release featuring optimized infrastructure and performance! ALTIUS will be your toolkit for scaling to the highest peaks of efficiency. Review the new advancements implemented in the ALTIUS product line:

+ History Compare – The ability to run a history comparison on points on a display just got better with four different time intervals (20 mins, 1 hr, 4 hrs, and 8hrs) plus now point data can be collected from both limits and tolerance.

+ Improved Alarm Indication – Alarming on valves and equipment now features a separate option to choose either outline or background fill of the shape in the alarm color. These options are selected in the style sheet.

+ Disabled and Inhibited Alarm Characters – The “D” and “I” characters representing the “disabled” and “inhibited” alarm states are now customizable allowing for the character and the background fill to be changed to any color combination desired. These changes are made in the style sheet.

+ New Shapes – A series of new indicator shapes have been added including the Indicator Calculation, Long Tag Indicator, Indicator Parameterized, and Indicator No Alarming Parameterized. These new shapes bring more functionality and versatility to our shape library.

+ New L2 Shapes – Several new shapes have been added to our Dashboard Library as well. As we continue to evolve the Level 2 graphic and how it displays information, new shapes will be created. The DPA (Dynamic Progression Awareness) vertical and horizontal bars, DPA Connector, and Alarm Group shape are just an example of these advancements.

*ALTIUS v 5.3 is Patent Pending

Lin and Associates was once again happy to attend the Honeywell Users Group Americas Symposium, commonly referred to as HUG, hosted this year at the JW Marriott Resort in San Antonio’s beautiful Hill Country.  Of note, this is the very first HUG, in its 38 years of existence, to not be held in Phoenix, AZ, but we still welcomed the change of scenery.

One highlight from this year’s HUG, is that, as Honeywell channel partners, we attended the Industrial Solution Provider (ISP) conference.  Here, Honeywell unveiled their latest member of the Experion Distributed Control Systems family, Experion LX, a platform designed to meet the specific demands of mid-scale operations.  We are thrilled about the many opportunities this new package presents, especially Experion LX’s cost-effective approach while still maintaining the safety, efficiency, and state-of-the-art technology of Honeywell’s large-scale platform  Experion PKS.

Finally, we would like to thank Honeywell for hosting yet another successful and highly informative conference.  The speakers and trainers, as always, discussed pertinent industry topics sparking valuable discourse in this globally changing energy landscape.  Well done everyone and thank you!  If this year’s triumphs are any indicators to next year’s HUG attendance, it will be bigger still and we are looking forward to it!

Lin and Associates attended the 2013 Process Solutions User Group (PSUG) in Houston.  This was Lin and Associates first time attending the PSUG and it was great to learn about Rockwell’s Process Automation System (PlantPAxTM).  Rockwell introduced their version of a distributed controls system (DCS) a few years ago and seems determined to go beyond the traditional DCS technology and integration.  Lin and Associates will surely be getting more familiar with Rockwell’s technologies in the near future to better serve our customer base.

Although a shift in Rockwell’s traditional plant automation solution, we believe Rockwell’s PlantPAxTM comes to the market as potentially a very strong competitor among DCS vendors.    Lin and Associates is currently investing in Rockwell’s PlantPAxTM system for potential use with some new or existing clients.

Overall the PSUG was informative and we were very impressed by the customer application sessions.  Worth attending!

This year’s Honeywell Users Group (HUG) reminds us of experiences years ago. Our host, Honeywell, all of the speakers and trainers did an outstanding job as always and it is exciting to see the attendance continue to rise year after year.  Many of you may have missed Lin & Associates in the demo room this year, unfortunately we were unable have a booth.  While overcoming some challenges we found huge success this year and a more focused and captivated audience.

The highlights this year consisted of the newly branded ALTIUS “Hi-Performance HMI Solution”, developed for Experion® R400 & R410. Without the constrains of the demo room hours, fatigue from standing, distractions, or interruption, Lin & Associates kept demonstrations running from 8am to 6pm.  This allowed us to really listen to our guests’ needs and suggestions. We received great positive feedback and look to build on the success.  Next year will prove to be another challenge for Lin & Associates as the venue has changed to San Antonio, Texas for 2014, but as always we are committed to exceeding expectations and providing the professional excellence our clients deserve.

If you were unable to see a full demonstration of ALTIUS please contact us, to schedule a personalized WebEx demonstration.
