Image Addressing Production Challenges
Proficy RX is a unique software solution thatprovides standardized control and networking of multiple instruments, eliminating the necessity to manage, learn and validate multiple instrument interface software applications. Preprocessing of analytical data ensures similar data formats and
protocols and the intuitive nature of Proficy RX provides a single development environment, and 21 CFR Part 11 tools ensure quick and compliant
deployment in regulated environments.

Managing the Measurement Process
Proficy RX manages the measurement process from application development to routine on-line operation. During development it provides all of the tools needed to design virtually any analytical method. Once a method has been developed, it can be locked down and provided with a custom operator screen with access to predetermined set of operations and displays.

In the traditional world of distributed control Systems (DCS) and programmable logic controllers (PLC), relatively simple sensors such as RTDs, flow meters, and pressure gauges are used to provide one dimensional (scalar) information which can be processed directly by the DCS/PLC.
With advent of Process Analytical Technology, the situation has changed drastically. An analytical instrument, such as a near-infrared (NIR)
spectrometer, may provide as many as 2,000 independent spectral data points in less than a second. This large amount of data must be collected,
stored, displayed, transmitted, and processed in such a way as to provide timely and manageable information about the process variables of interest. Proficy RX fills this role, bridging the gap between the instrumentation at the manufacturing process and the data historian,
SCADA, or other enterprise-level data system.

Key Elements of the Proficy RX Approach
Proficy RX is organized in such a way as to provide a high degree of flexibility within a framework specifically tailored to the needs of analytical instrumentation.

Proficy RX’s Major Functions:
• Sample system design and control
• Simultaneous control of multiple analyzers
• Real-time trending of any number of streams
• System diagnostics, data display, and alarming
• Archiving of data in a local or remote SQL
• Comprehensive historical data analysis
