Innovative solutions for the Process Industries

Do you need to monitor or control within a process environment?

Make production more efficient and minimise downtimes with turnkey solutions which support flexible expansion and include control and remote technology, safety and Ex i components, surge protection and industry specific software.

Whether you work on Upstream, Midstream, Downstream, Offshore or a chemical plant, Phoenix Contact offers a comprehensive portfolio of hardware and software for new or retrofit applications.

Below are some examples of the solutions that we can offer to the Process Industries:

Networking the digital oil field

Production sites often constitute an extensive and widely meshed network. At Phoenix Contact, you will find communication solutions based on Radioline wireless modules for reliable data transmission even over several kilometres. Radioline allows fast setup of mesh networks, directly on the device using a thumbwheel or USB stick. In the event of a fault, failure of a wireless module is compensated immediately.

Measuring and control solutions

Whether 4...20 mA, Modbus, NAMUR, FOUNDATION Fieldbus or PROFIBUS PA, the modular control system allows processing of a large number of common measured values. It is therefore possible to read or control devices such as pump stations, valves or flow meters consistently while the product is on the way to the storage tank.

The system also allows modifications so that you can integrate further remote communication technology seemlessly at any time.

Complete solutions for automated tank farm management

Create efficient level control with a wide range of SIL-certified technology products for functional safety, Ex i signal conditioners as well as modular control systems.

Overflow protection is installed parallel to level control which controls a safety valve in the event of an emergency and stops the flow od the conveyed material immediately.

Redundant control of airfield refuelling

A redundancy designed control system monitors and controls the refuelling process via PIT kerosene hydrants at the aircraft parking bays (in this case, 34).

If a hydrant transmits and alarm, this and the neighbouring hydrants are shut down.

The intelligent emergency stop system is SIL 2-certified. Combined with the redundantly designed PROFINET communication, safe control or the refuelling system is ensured at all times.

Redundant alarms and monitoring

Systems such as ship's engines, energy generation, rudder systems or fire detection are part of the essential services on board. If they fail, there is a risk to the crew and the ship. In order to be notified of critical situations promptly, redundant alarms and monitoring are installed based on robust control and network technology.

In addition to the essential services, the system also reports on general conditions such as the filling levels of the ballast water or fuel tanks and the drinking water supply.
