flow computer is a complete gas flow measurement system.|
AnchorFLOW provides a full
function single to five run natural gas flow measurement computer
function as an application within an IEC-61131-3 programming
Users can add PIDs or any custom control loops with
IEC 61131-3 Ladder Logic or
Structured Text Languages within a single industrial strength
Users select modes of operation via PC
configuration screens that are easy to use, easy to verify.
Isolated analog inputs directly feed FLOW calculations. The
system provides for hourly and daily history with MMI
connectivity via Modbus.
The Flow Computer open system design results
in a cost-effective solution while offering the user the option
of customizing the system.
Modbus Master capability and the custom
control programmability of IEC 61131-3 provides for remote
I/O as well as extensive control capability within the Flow
computer system remote unit.
The system clock is synchronized with an on-board real-time
clock that provides battery backup-up operation through extended
power-off cycles. The user can remotely reset current system
Local and remote electronic data recording
of system variables includes calculated flows as well as all
critical inputs such as pressures, temperatures, mol percentage
of gases, etc. for repeating local flow calculations.
AnchorFLOW provides ModbusTCP and
ModbusRTU compatibility for ease of integration to any SCADA
AnchorFLOW is configured with the
AnchorFLOWConfigTM PC based Windows® program.
AnchorFLOWConfig is easy to use PC based software
through which support personnel view, configure and test the
system. No programming is required. AnchorFLOWConfig
generates Excel® “csv” event log and history
data for flexible report generation.
Status and alarm notification can be programmed
by the user to generate a message for events such as power
loss, input out of range condition, flow cut-off or out-of-range
and more. Email, fax, and alphanumeric pager notification
Internet and network based communications
options provide simple enterprise integration. Wireless communications
options include cell, radio, and satellite. Dial and leased
line connections are supported.
Electrically isolated I/O channels provide
the capability to read and control any analog, digital, and
serial signals. Industrial NEMA standard enclosures are available
to meet the toughest environmental conditions. An optional
19” rack mount unit with visible status/alarm annunciation
is also available.
