Yokogawa releases enhanced FCN- RTU controller to accommodate eight modules
Yokogawa Electric Corporation released an enhanced version of the FCN- RTU low-power autonomous controller of the Stardom network-based control system.
The FCN-RTU can now accommodate eight I/O modules, up from the previous three, and can handle 256 input/output signals. An additional 10 Stardom FCN-RTU I/O modules are now rated for use in temperatures ranging from −20°C to +70°C.
Each Stardom FCN-RTU supports up to 8 gas flow and 8 liquid flow runs. The Stardom-based WellProducer application allows users to configure multiple wells per pad and automate the well pad for optimized plunger lift control, pressure and flow monitoring and control, bath heater control, gas metering, liquid metering, emergency shutdown, and remote monitoring. Its browser based configuration reduces the effort for deploying a well pad and enables rapid commissioning. Simply select the devices and the flow calculations and Stardom corrects for gas, water, and oil to deliver corrected metering for gas and oil along with reporting produced water and water cut.
