Access to timely and accurate mission-criticalinformation from fixed assets such as oil and gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, fluid storage tanks and utility meters, can eliminate critical gaps in your oil and gas operations, resulting in higher productivity and long-term growth.
The PAC8000 RTU was designed from the ground up for high availability. It provides for Controller as well as Network Redundancy. The RTU supports fault tolerant communications to the Control Room SCADA; however, in the unlikely event that the communications are lost, the RTU can either continue to operate autonomously or adopt a user-defined safe state. If the RTU continues to operate, data will be logged for transmission once communications have been restored. In the event of power loss, it will perform a cold restart, which restores the program(s) and assumes a predefined status. Controllers can also be configured to perform a “warm start” if RTU power is temporarily lost during a brownout.
The PAC8000 RTU is designed to handle extreme environments including -40 to +70 degrees C, ISA G3 Corrosion resistance, and 30G Shock, 5G Vibrations.
