Following its recent acquisition of Zedi’s software and automation businesses, Emerson has developed an autonomous rod pump management solution with a machine learning capability. More from Emerson/Zedi.

Gexcon has announced FLACS-CFD 21, the latest version of its fire and explosion modeling software. Simulations can be run in the cloud from the workstation GUI with result files downloaded to a local system. The Flacs GUI is now also available in Chinese.

Honeywell has added the ‘Operator Advisor’ to its Experion HALO (highly augmented lookahead operations) suite. OA uses ML-powered analytics to provide oil and gas, chemical, refining and petrochemical organizations with a ‘consolidated scorecard’ of automation use, along with recommended steps to address performance-related gaps.

Ben Orchard, blogging on the Opto22 website explains how to port your DIY automation skunkworks from the Raspberry Pi to run on its industrial strength Groov EPIC/RIO hardware controllers. Opto22 also provides resources for developers using Python, ‘the most popular language used on Groov hardware’.

Onboard Dynamics has launched the GoVAC Flex, a system that transfers recovered methane to either an adjacent pipeline or tube trailer. The ‘simple, mobile, fully integrated solution’ provides operators of natural gas pipelines with a tool to minimize greenhouse gas emissions during routine maintenance.

Radix Engineering and Software is offering a technology due diligence service to companies interested in mergers and acquisitions.
