Production pads with multiple wells (typically used in shale gas or oil production) present special challenges to gathering and controlling process variables. Often the wells are distributed over a wide geographic area, making wired connectivity difficult and control and remote point monitoring problematic.
Remote Automation Solutions’ Distributed RTU Network (DRN) provides a unique and cost-effective resolution to this challenge. The DRN structures data acquisition and transmission in a true peer-to-peer network (rather than a more traditional master-slave arrangement), uses wireless technology to improve data transmission, and enables you to design – and quickly re-design – both the network structure and the flow of data through the network.
The Distributed RTU Network is a distributed control solution that allows seamless wireless integration of multiple field controllers. It integrates Emerson’s FloBoss™ 107 and ROC800-Series with radio technology that provides transparent data connectivity to enable shared, distributed control across a wide geographical area.
