Clarity – Graphical User Interface
Management & User Interface Software
Your window on refrigeration couldn’t be wider or clearer.
Logix® Clarity’s unmatched management features allow operators to quickly identify and correct problems or trends that can cost owners lost product and high energy bills. No other refrigeration management software is easier to use or more capable.
Understanding how your refrigeration works is instantaneous with Clarity’s clear and concise representation of refrigeration and other equipment under Logix control. Realistic and functional graphics represent current operating conditions of compressors, evaporators and other equipment with animated movement, color-coded on/off status and read-outs of sensor points.
Utilizing standard computer networks, companies can have full access to Logix Clarity’s features from any connected PC installed with Logix Clarity Client software. Clarity provides an option to email alarm messages to multiple recipients, and supports up to 20 concurrent Clarity client seats for flexible and secure remote access.
Clarity’s notification features alert personnel of any system alarm or equipment failure through the use of text and voice messaging to pager, cell and land phones. The notification features also let staff acknowledge notices via touch-tone keypad, and record the event and the acknowledgment in an alarm and failure history.
Clarity records, stores and retrieves all system conditions in user-defined time intervals year after year. Temperatures, pressures, amperage, control modes, operating settings and other items are available for reporting and analysis.
The Logix Clarity Report and Plotting Designer allows you to organize and output the information important to your needs in multiple formats, including:
- Tabular reports and color plots to printer
- Reports to Excel, web, or database
- Reports automatically printed or sent via email
Logix Clarity software performs system-wide data logging that is open to the use of other control, monitoring and database programs. Clarity also provides robust data reporting and analysis tools that improve understanding of the refrigeration system and its efficient operation. These capabilities allow managers to constantly detect problems or trends which need correcting, and then test the efficacy of different operational scenarios. This continuous improvement enables owners to realize ongoing cost and quality improvements beyond the immediate savings provided by the Logix Refrigeration Energy Management System.
Clarity’s password protection restricts access with a system of multiple authority levels, and records history of user access for future reference.
Exchange data and integrate operating parameters, systems status and data logs trend with third-party database, control and supervisory systems such as PLC and SCADA through a host of industry standard communication options. This allows integration of the refrigeration control as a subset of a plant’s overall control system – or the other way around.
Clarity takes the guesswork out of maintenance by organizing pending maintenance tasks based on either equipment runtime or periodic time intervals, and includes pending task reports showing all upcoming maintenance work. The Equipment Maintenance Manager creates work orders with description and check list, maintenance date, parts needed and personnel assigned to the task. In addition, the Manager features a maintenance history log for recording all maintenance activity (useful for Process Safety Management compliance).
