LAKE FOREST, Calif., Apr. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mirion Technologies has contracted with Schneider Electric to use its Wonderware eDNA historian software as the information management system for the Radiation Monitoring System (RMS) upgrade at AEP's D.C. Cook nuclear power plant. The eDNA RadServ solution interfaces directly with Mirion's radiation monitors being installed at the plant and is used to notify operators when radiation levels reach predefined thresholds.
As part of the contract, Wonderware eDNA display screens are being created for real-time visualization of data for each radiation monitor and detector at the plant. The screens highlight radiation levels and the status of the monitor and its corresponding detectors -- whether normal, maintenance, or alarm -- in addition to other user-defined variables. The software includes the ability to generate standard radiation monitoring reports that include both real-time and historical data, such as source check, channel checks and system performance audits, in addition to custom reports.
"Wonderware eDNA has been installed at the D.C. Cook plant for more than a decade, and we are excited that this technology continues to be used in this RMS upgrade and for numerous other data-intensive projects in the power industry," said Rob McGreevy, Vice President of Information, Operations at Schneider Electric.
Wonderware eDNA's RadServ Radiation Monitoring System is a reliable solution for centralized monitoring and control of radiation field units. Overall, the Wonderware eDNA enterprise historian is equipment agnostic and is used in the power industry to collect, store, display, analyze and report on operational and asset health related information.
