Will be possible have a StandAlone DeltaV for self-training porpuses?

Lead Application Engineer

Definitely, is impossible have a Virtual Machine with a StandAlone DeltaV for self-training porpuses (with simulator). Everybody tell me that I must to buy a dongley license that cost more than 8 thousand dollars. Any comments? Thanks in advance. this is my last chance :S:S.

    Hi Jose Carlos, There was a lively thread on this subject with several alternatives discussed over on the Emerson Exchange 365 community. Here's the link: http://community.emerson.com/process/emerson-exchange/systems-solutions/deltav/f/50/t/159.aspx

    Thanks for you answer Jim. Well, every options drive to buy something. I've been taking a look to http://www.processcontrollab.com/, but it's most for process experience & operator training and not a development engineering environment. Currently i have good knowledge in others DCS, as far as i've seen DeltaV is really powerfull (maybe more than others) and I would like to learn about it, but by myself.

    So, I'll keep looking for a more "cheap" solution.

    Hi Jose
    If you have installation DVD you can install DeltaV on the VM with out any problems, you have to only follow the windows installation manual in the base of DeltaV version. There is only on problem, you can configure, make the graphic pages but you can not make any download, so you will not be able to verify the result of your work. There is only the simulate license but you have to buy it. The system is protected by hardware and software license so there is no way to bypass this.

    Dawid, thanks for your reply. I already understand, I need to buy a key :S:S. Do you know where I can find any "cheaper" license for training purposes?

    Jose Carlos - if you want to invest in some personal education, a DeltaV Simulate Standalone license is, in my opinion, the best choice. This does not cost 8000 USD (more like 1/8 of this amount) and you need to contact your local Emerson sales office for local pricing, although you may get some resistance as I see from your profile that you are affliated with a competitor (IOM). All the best in your endeavors.
