Monitor the material to be conveyed on the way to further processing or tank storage.
It is necessary to continually monitor and control the quality and flow as well as check for leaks of the conveyed material while it is on its way from the production site for further processing or to the storage tanks. Standardized measuring procedures, for example, according to API, presume equally standardized data processing in the electronics.
Here, Phoenix Contact offers modular control and I/O system solutions for virtually all common types of signals. Dedicated function block libraries simplify integration of the measuring stations considerably. You will also find proven monitoring solutions for automatic filling and emptying of the storage tanks.
Thanks to the modular design, it is possible to extend your tank monitoring system at any time with our control and communication technology.
This allows you to continually monitor your filling levels as well as the inflow and outflow quantities because calculation is based on the current data of your tanks.
Phoenix Contact offers automated measuring and monitoring solutions with dedicated function blocks for LACT units (Lease Automatic Custody Transfer).
The density, temperature, and constituents of the material to be conveyed are analyzed based on API standards. API-compliant information is therefore always available for calculation and further processing.
Whether 4 … 20 mA, Modbus, NAMUR, FOUNDATION Fieldbus or PROFIBUS PA: the modular control system from Phoenix Contact 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 they are on the way to the storage tank. Your great advantage: the system allows modifications at any time so that you can integrate further remote communication technology seamlessly at any time.
