October 5, 2017 – Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced a release of the company’s ControlEdge Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), which now offers measurement of both gas and liquid flow. This version of the product also now offers expanded HART support.
The electronic flow metering capability supports liquid custody transfer per the American Petroleum Institute (API) 21.2 guidelines in North America. This latest release increases the efficiency of remote asset management by doubling as a flow meter, as well as allowing operators to automate loop check and commissioning, reduce hard-wired input/output (I/O) devices, and extend device diagnostics.
ControlEdge RTU is part of Honeywell’s family of controllers, leveraging the power of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). It is designed to reduce equipment monitoring and diagnostic time from hours to minutes and decrease configuration time. The RTU is able to withstand harsh environments and is designed for easy deployment at remote sites, in applications such as wellhead monitoring and control, data concentrators, gas flow metering, block-valve automation, and pump and compressor control, as well as in water distribution and wastewater treatment. Featuring native redundancy, the controller complements the C300 and Series-C platform used in Honeywell’s Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) to provide a fully integrated solution.
Honeywell Process Solutions is a pioneer in automation control, instrumentation and services for the oil and gas; refining; pulp and paper; industrial power generation; chemicals and petrochemicals; biofuels; life sciences; and metals, minerals and mining industries. It is also a leader in providing software solutions and instrumentation that help manufacturers find value and competitive advantage in through Honeywell Connected Plant, Honeywell’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solution.
