September 15, 2010 - Emerson Process Management released the ROC800L liquid hydrocarbon remote controller. Designed to measure and control a wide range of liquid hydrocarbons including crude oil, refined products, specialty products, lubricating oils, and light hydrocarbons, the ROC800L is ideal for applications from oil well testing and net oil computations to custody transfer and leak detection. Leveraging the proven ROC800-Series Remote Operations Controller architecture with its ease of use and quick installation, Emerson created the new remote controller to simplify liquid measurement. The ROC800L‚Äôs straightforward, fill-in-the blanks approach to configuration covers a variety of applications, and the remote controller is quickly configured using ROCLINK 800 software. The device can also be programmed to perform many PLC functions using FST (Function Sequence Tables) or Emerson's DS800 programming tool. The DS800 uses any of the familiar languages defined by IEC Standard 61131-3, including ladder logic, structured text, function block diagrams, instruction list, or sequential function chart language. This flexibility makes customization to meet unique control requirements even easier.For maximum productivity and reduced maintenance costs, the ROC800L can be connected to Emerson‚Äôs DeltaV digital automation system to enable remote device diagnostics using Emerson‚Äôs AMS Suite predictive maintenance software, The ROC800L has been tested and found to meet the requirements of the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate for liquid flow computers. ‚ÄúThe ROC800L adds a rugged liquid hydrocarbon measurement remote controller to our Remote Automation Solutions portfolio of products,‚Äù said Randy Page, vice president, global sales for Emerson's Remote Automation Solutions. ‚ÄúWe have installed more than 200 preproduction units with multiple customers to allow them to test and evaluate different requirements. One customer reported saving 45 percent in installation costs.‚ÄùAbout Emerson Process ManagementEmerson Process Management, an Emerson business, is a leader in helping businesses automate their production, processing and distribution in the chemical, oil and gas, refining, pulp and paper, power, water and wastewater treatment, mining and metals, food and beverage, life sciences and other industries.
