Alarm management practitioner training courses from M.A.C. Solutions For those involved in the design, management or maintenance of alarms and alarm systems, M.A.C. Solutions, developer of the ProcessVue® suite of alarm management software, is running a two-day alarm management training course on 6-7th November 2018. Topics covered in the course include: • Fundamentals of alarm management and the alarm improvement process. • Benefits of alarm management with regard to your legislative and regulatory obligations and OEE improvements. • Creation of an Alarm Philosophy and associated documentation. • Alarm design principles. • Master Alarm Databases.


he course is aimed at providing all the information and guidance delegates require to successfully implement alarm management within their company, thus providing a basis for the ongoing safe and efficient operation of their plant. The course is strongly recommended for anyone responsible for leading improvements to the management of alarms within a process industry plant, particularly Upper and Lower Tier COMAH-regulated or FDA-regulated sites. These include oil & gas, petrochemicals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, power stations, food processing and water companies.

Training and education are key For any site to be safe and operationally effective, there needs to be a robust system of governance, as well as comprehensive procedures and work practices that are rigorously enforced for alarm system(s). With an


appropriately designed, managed, operated and maintained alarm system, companies can be confident that when critical events occur, their operators will be able to respond appropriately. Managing alarms may sound simple, but there are many facets that must be considered and addressed, from the management and detailed design of alarms and alarm systems, through to the potential for cultural change. Ian Brown, Alarm Rationalisation and Services Manager at MAC Solutions (UK) comments: “Whether you’re starting an alarm management journey due to regulatory pressures, as part of a corporate Process Safety Management initiative, or simply through a commitment to continuous improvement, you need to acquire the skills and knowledge that are necessary to help you with your task.”

• Benchmarking, auditing and assessing your system. • Alarm rationalisation and implementation. • Nuisance alarm remediation and advanced alarm handling. On completion of the two-day training course, attendees should have learned everything they need to know about how to successfully implement alarm management on their site. The course will be taught by a knowledgeable, experienced alarm practitioner, so attendees will also learn many things they didn’t know they needed to know, and some of the pitfalls to avoid. For more information or to register to attend a training course, please visit or telephone MAC Solutions on 01527 529774 or email

HARTING introduces Han® Configurator: an interactive tool to speed the selection of heavy-duty industrial connectors The HARTING Han® Configurator is a new interactive tool designed to speed the selection of heavy-duty industrial connectors by allowing engineers to quickly access all the necessary information and relevant data on the individual interface components prior to producing a design that can be viewed as a 3D model in real time.

The Han® Configurator is an advance in the digital transformation of product development. It helps generate the best solutions from an extensive portfolio, without the user having to be or become a component specialist himself. The Han® Configurator is geared towards real-world practice. It is designed so that a user can quickly put together all the interfaces necessary for a particular configuration. The designer starts by selecting three inputs (contacts, voltage and current) to generate the first possible solution. At each stage of the process the user can receive suggestions for alternative interfaces and via the “smart assistant” feature the configurator will only allow valid configurations to be implemented, saving valuable design time.


Despite increasingly complex requirements and a high level of product diversification, the smart configurator makes the connector selection process easily manageable. The current configuration can be viewed in real time in the form of a 3D model in a separate window, and the configurator will never display components that cannot be combined with a selection already made. By selecting “expert” mode, users who already know the product numbers or names they are looking for can set up their interfaces in the configurator, making them easily manageable for subsequent processing. The choice of housing (top/bottom) or insert (pin/socket) is all that is necessary to begin the configuration process.

The Han® Configurator allows users to quickly and intuitively arrive at the best interface solution without the need to search for components and their specifications. It is easy to add and remove alternative interface solutions that comply with the latest connector developments, all with the click of a mouse. Designers also benefit from the onscreen 3D visualisation of the current configuration, allowing the design to be viewed from a range of angles. Each configuration is assigned its own number, allowing it to be saved for revision at a later date. All documentation can be downloaded with a single click (including STP files) for saving, loading and sharing among members of a design team, including those working remotely.

Expert Servicing, Direct from the Manufacturer The servicing and maintenance of enclosure climate control units is often an area that is overlooked in manufacturing.

However, regular servicing has been shown to significantly reduce unit failures and thus prevent production downtime.

Production downtime is always expensive but it is particularly annoying when it’s preventable – for example, when a cooling unit fails because it needs servicing, thereby bringing everything to a standstill.

Rittal After Sales Service offers tailor-made, fast response, service packages, direct from the manufacturer, worldwide, and around the clock.

Regular maintenance of cooling units is important, especially for critical environmental conditions. Ambient air containing oil or dust can easily result in dirty filter mats; this results in reduced air throughput in the external circuit and decreased cooling output. If this causes a steep rise in temperature inside the enclosure then failure is simply a matter of time. And yet, in practically all cases, maintenance costs are significantly lower than those resulting from a system failure. If the servicing cannot be managed by the company’s own employees, Rittal offers customised solutions with its After Sales Service packages. Customers who sign up will be serviced by a single local engineering company, with the backing of the manufacturer’s expertise. “With Rittal After Sales Service, we are using central contacts, our own engineers and local presence to provide an expert service with short response times,” says Karl Lycett, Rittal’s Product Manager for Climate.

Reduce Downtime Maximise Profit


He adds: “Support is provided by our own service engineers and selected authorised regional service partners with a high level of expertise on Rittal products.” From Service Checks to Service Contracts Customers can agree a one-off service or an individual service contract and the contract package can be tailored to meet any customer requirements, including: availability, response times, service intervals and spare parts stocking. Quick response times If, in spite of regular servicing, a fault does occur, those signed up to the Service will benefit from the short response times from Rittal’s network of highly-trained service engineers across the UK and internationally, with over 1,000 service engineers in 150 locations worldwide guarantee very fast service. If required, a contract can be agreed to ensure a service engineer can be on-site within four hours – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
