Hamburg, Germany based software and consulting boutique Implico has announced a ‘complete solution’ for communicating oil loading data in real time. The new ‘TCP-X-Unit’ adds advanced data communication to legacy field devices using Implico’s OpenTAS terminal management system. The solution runs on a Matrix-504 Linux microcomputer. The pocket-sized device converts legacy RS-232 signals into TCP/IP for ingestion to OpenTAS over an Ethernet link. The Matrix-504 was chosen for its multiple communication ports onboard web server that is amenable for Internet of Things-style applications.
Implico’s developers have been hard at work on a new SAP S/4HANA downstream solution for ‘secondary distribution management,’ (SDM) a component of SAP’s oil and gas industry solutions. SDM supports the entire order-to-cash process for downstream companies. Implico is the solution architect and developer of the whole SAP S/4HANA retail fuel network operations solution set.
