Wonderware Prometheus - World's First Multi-Vendor Configuration Tool

Centralized configuration and management delivers re-use, standardization and transparency to maximize asset performance


Wonderware Prometheus is a brand new offering from Schneider Electric Software. Prometheus is the industry’s first universal configuration solution for defining, programming and documenting all components in an industrial control system, from the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) to the I/O. It introduces a high level open programming environment that automates complex configuration tasks and enables the configuration of control components, regardless of type or brand.

By removing the complexity and the tedious burden of updating multiple applications, Prometheus drives greater agility across automation and control systems, ensuring that plants run the most efficient and up-to-date processes.
Scott Clark, Director of Control Configuration at Schneider Electric, describes Prometheus as a major breakthrough. “One tool to configure and manage your entire control system, without limitation. Prometheus is comprehensive and intelligent. It structures and simplifies the entire development process, delivering benefits to everyone on the control team.”

For the standards team, Prometheus templates ensure standards are not only achievable, but deliver real value. Code development independent of the target platform, optional functionality and intelligent plug and socket connections deliver agile templates, ensuring the maximum reuse of code. Integrated version management means standards can evolve as requirements change.
“Although control code is developed independent of the target platform, it does not limit what you can achieve”, continued Scott Clark. “Once complete, the code is compiled by the vendors software for validation and download; the code developed in Prometheus can leverage the unique features of every platform.”
