Gas & Oil Flow Computer (AGA-3, 7, 8, API 2540) 8 Meter Runs

Gas & Oil Flow Computer (AGA-3, 7, 8, API 2540) 8 Meter Runs

MVI69-AFC

The Liquid & Gas Flow Computer Module is designed as an Integrated component for CompactLogix® systems to measure hydrocarbon gasses or liquids with accuracy and precision. The flow computer calculates flow rates and accumulated totals of volume, mass, and energy (heating value) for specified liquids and gases. Selected calculated results are transferred to processor memory for use in the application ladder programs. A SCADA host may retrieve the same values through any of three front panel Modbus serial ports.

Features and Benefits

8 Meter runs
  • The module can calculate up to 8 meter runs with four streams per runs simultaneously, making it cost-effective, since more meters can be connected to a single flow computer.
  • Monitor gas and liquid meters for (flow rates, accumulator values and other calculation results). All alarm data is displayed on the AFC Manager screen
  • The AFC Manager software provides ability to download and view the archives and events
Three Configurable Modbus Ports
  • Change Configuration Online with no downtime
  • All Data including configuration, calculated results, and historical records available using Modbus through any of the three ports.
  • All ports can operate as Modbus slaves and one port can be configured as a Modbus Master
Customized Modbus Data Mapping
  • Remapping to a virtual slave enables data concentration
  • Data concentration reduces bandwidth load on the communication system
Auditability
  • Audit Scan captures process inputs and calculated results as “snapshots”, allowing verification of calculations.
  • Event Log records significant events and alarms.
  • Hourly and daily archives are configurable historical records of user-selected data.
  • Using Modbus, Audit Scan, Event Log, and Archives, can be viewed online, printed, orsaved to a file in .txt or .csv format.
Meter Proving
  • Version 2.07.000 or later allows meter proving with 4 configurable prover types.
Security
  • Data download is secure with no data loss.
  • Password protection schemes are available to control user access.

 

Applications

The MVI69-AFC module is the ideal solution for many applications where hydrocarbon flow and SCADA communication must be added to the CompactLogix platform.

Applications using the MVI69-AFC module can be found mainly in the oil and gas industrial sectors.
