Yokagawa tailors Stardom for upstream oil and gas

New modules address control of rotating machinery distributed over wide geographical areas.

Yokogawa Electric Corp. has released new modules for its Stardom network-based control system including an upgraded module for oil and gas upstream processes improving reliability and increasing greater memory capacity. The new field control node (FCN) autonomous controllers are designed for small- to medium-size turbomachinery and the FCN-RTU low-power autonomous controller used to control of oil and gas wellheads distributed over a wide area.

New functionality includes a servo module to control rotational speed and a module to detect excessive speed. Oil and gas upstream processes customers now benefit from the same error check and correct (ECC) memory found in high-end PCs. Memory capacity has been doubled to facilitate the long-term storage of gas volume data and other on-site information. Stardom now also supports Windows 7. More from www.oilit.com/links/1102_18.
