SICAM Diamond is a visualization and diagnosis system suitable for use with both Siemens telecontrol and station control technology. It is designed for substations which require a low-cost, simple-to-use, easily configured operating and monitoring system. The use of modern Web technology allows the sub-station to be monitored from any location without the installation of special software.
Systematic monitoring with SICAM Diamond: SICAM Diamond is a Web-based operating and monitoring system and uses a modern client-server architecture. The clients are platform-independent – all they need is a Web browser in order to access substations. This minimizes costs and the amount of resources required. This means that existing Intranet and Internet infrastructures can be used for data exchange. The Diamond server acts as data source and contains an Admin tool which regulates data administration and user rights.
In addition to the diagnostic functions, SICAM Diamond provides a number of other functions for operating and monitoring the process:
The process and system status messages as well as the switching actions are logged every millisecond to an event list
Selected messages can be routed to an alarm list that can be configured for alarm acknowledgement
Archiving: The content of the event list as well as measured values and count values – combined in groups – can be archived in month-specific files for a period of 12 months. The archive files can be downloaded via the intranet/Internet and further analyzed, for example, in Microsoft Excel
SICAM Recpro saves the fault records automatically called up from the protective devices via SICAM PAS to a fault record archive. This archive can be accessed via the intranet/Internet using SICAM Diamond for visualization, analysis and downloading
Graphical system diagrams can be generated for system management using an optional single line editor
Unlike conventional operating and monitoring systems, SICAM Diamond can be configured quickly and without a long training period even by less experienced users.
