SIMATIC Process Device Manager (PDM) is a universal, manufacturer-independent tool for configuration, parameter assignment, commissioning, diagnostics and maintenance of intelligent field devices and components.

SIMATIC PDM can be used as a service and diagnostics tool in the stand-alone version as well as integrated into engineering stations of SIMATIC PCS 7 and SIMATIC PCS 7 Maintenance Station.
SIMATIC PDM can be used in a variety of different scaling levels:

- As a service and diagnostics tool in the stand-alone version
- Integrated into engineering stations of the SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system
- Integrated into the Step 7 engineering tool of SIMATIC S 7
- Integrated into the SIMATIC PCS 7 Maintenance Station
- Integrated into the SIMATIC Maintenance Station PDM

Areas of application:

- Setting and modification of device parameters
- Comparison of reference and actual parameter assignment
- Verification of input validity
- Simulation
- Diagnosis
- Management of device descriptions
- Commissioning functions, e.g. measuring circuit tests of process device data
- LifeList
- Logging functions
- Device management and device replacement management
- Provision of type and diagnostic information for the Maintenance Stations

Automation of the Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline, Azerbaijan
Automation of the Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline, Azerbaijan
The Oguz-Gabala-Baku water pipeline project dates back to plans from the 1970’s. Baku’s growth was historically driven by the booming oil industry and required the import of drinking water from outside of the city. Before the construction of the pipeline, some 60 percent of the city’s households received water for only a few hours daily. After completion of the project, 75 percent of the two million Baku residents are now served around the clock with potable water, based on World Health Organization (WHO) standards. The 262-kilometer pipeline requires no pumping station, but uses the altitude differences between the Caucasian mountains and the capital to supply 432,000 m³/d to the Ceyranbatan water reservoir. To the people of Baku, the pipeline is “the most important project not only in 2010, but of the last 20 years.”
