  • Patent number: 10785455
    Abstract: A plant operating state analysis system includes a data collector which is connected to both a control network and a monitoring network and which collects both control network data and monitoring screen video data. The data collector includes a synchronization processing unit and a data display processing unit. The synchronization processing unit synchronizes the control network data and the monitoring screen video data by adding a delay time due to transmission through the monitoring network, which includes an encoding time spent by a video capturer, to the time at which the control network data has been collected. The data display processing unit reproduces and displays, on a screen, the control network data and monitoring screen video data that are synchronized by the synchronization processing unit.
