TCM® Monitoring Department
The first of September 2014 our TCM® Monitoring Department was launched with a splashing start. Monitoring service is what the industry is looking for at the moment, as it eases daily operations along with coordinated downtime. TCM® Monitoring service lets our customers communicate with us through our Online Customer Portal, when recommended action has been given. Furthermore we detect all alarms, and inform the customers about this. This leads to a an open and daily communication between you and us, which create an relationship vital to lead an successful business.
TCM® software version 7.3.1 and 8.1.1
These two releases are packed with new features both within TCM® ocular suite, the M-System and the Site Server. To make use of TCM® Ocular suite a registration is needed from now on, which will offer a more updated and open communication between Gram & Juhl and our customers. The M- System has recovered a permanent fix for Shell-Shock vulnerability and therefore this has been made as an open source – everybody can open and download it. The Site Server has been updated with retrospective calculations of “RMS Harmonic” which calculates indicators for historical data. Highlights of this release include: A measurement history plot as a new plot type in our TCM® Diagnostic Tools Program, Ocular. This plot makes it easy to get a quick overview of the turbines condition. This is completed by illustrating all alarm events occurred in a turbines lifetime, specified for each power bin. This is a handy tool in order to make the development of the components damages visible on a timeline. Furthermore a history plot can also detect the thinning of data on the server.
Also known as a Bash door, hit our systems late September. Just two days later the bug was discovered and was fixed. Shellshock is asecurity bug which can be planted anywhere. Our problem with this kind of bug is that it interferes with our entire TCM® System and we came to the question whether a new software release was needed or not? Therefore our developers came up with a solution to distribute a new Bach version to all our systems, without the need to update the firmware in our M-System.
