Enhanced Liquid & Gas Flow Computer for CompactLogix

MVI69E-AFC

ProSoft Technology’s MVI69E-AFC in-chassis flow computer solution allows you to combine the power and scalability of a CompactLogix® automation system with the functionality typically only seen in a stand-alone flow computers or dedicated measurement RTU’s. This provides you with the industry standard calculations, archiving, and reporting needed for custody transfer and allocation based measurement functions for Oil and Gas operations.

By combining automation and measurement functions into a single solution, this helps to reduce overall support and integration costs for Oil and Gas applications while also decreasing your overall capital spend. This simplified solution allows you to optimize your resources.

ProSoft Technology’s MVI69E-AFC in-chassis flow computer solution allows you to combine the power and scalability of a CompactLogix® automation system with the functionality typically only seen in a stand-alone flow computers or dedicated measurement RTU’s. This provides you with the industry standard calculations, archiving, and reporting needed for custody transfer and allocation based measurement functions for Oil and Gas operations.

By combining automation and measurement functions into a single solution, this helps to reduce overall support and integration costs for Oil and Gas applications while also decreasing your overall capital spend. This simplified solution allows you to optimize your resources.

In addition, because our flow computer sits in a CompactLogix system, you can take advantage of Rockwell Automation’s distributed I/O capability, wide range of communications protocols, and ProSoft’s wireless radios to greatly reduce wiring to your transmitters and I/O devices.

Since the module operates as a co-processor for measurement related functions to the CompactLogix system, and as measurement requirements of the site grow, you can simply add an additional MVI69E-AFC module to increase your measurement capabilities to an individual site. A truly scalable automation and measurement solution.

MVI69E-AFC-schematicFeatures and Benefits

  • Meter runs: The module can calculate up to 12 meter runs with four streams per run simultaneously, making it cost-effective, since more meters can be connected to a single flow computer.
  • Modbus capabilities: Remote configuration and diagnostics via Ethernet (Modbus® TCP/IP). Flexible serial port configurations allow for either two Modbus slave ports or one Modbus slave and one Modbus Master port. All data, including configuration, calculated results, and historical archives, are available using either the Modbus TCP/IP server or Modbus slave serial ports.
  • Customized Modbus Data Mapping: Remapping to a virtual slave enables data concentration, reducing bandwidth load on the communication system.
  • Auditability: Our configuration software provides the ability to download and view archives and events. Audit Scan captures process inputs and calculated results as “snapshots,” allowing verification of calculations. The Event Log records significant events and alarms. Hourly and daily archives are configurable historical records of user-selected data. The data can be viewed online, printed, or saved to a file in .txt or .csv format. Archive data can be exported to Flow-Cal .cfx format. Meter calibration and verification are stored on the module.
  • Meter proving: Allows for meter proving with 3 configurable prover types.
  • Security: Password protection schemes are available to control user access and log meter calibration and verification activities. A built-in web server allows for remote network diagnostics and monitoring.

Specifications

General Specifications

  • The module is recognized by the processor as an Input/Output module.
  • The provided Add-On Instruction (AOI) files are used for data transfers between the module and processor, reducing configuration time.
  • Configuration is downloaded over Ethernet by way of the Modbus TCP/IP servers, or delivered by user-defined ladder.

Functional Specifications

The MVI69E-AFC operates as a powerful flow computer module, augmenting the operation of the CompactLogix® processor by providing a dedicated and accurate set of flow calculations.

  • Calculates flow rates, accumulated volumes, accumulated mass, and (for gas product) accumulated energy.
  • Calculation results are transferred to processor memory and may also be transferred to a SCADA host using Modbus serial or Modbus TCP/IP.
  • User-configurable, allowing each of the meter runs to be individually set up to meet the specific requirements of an application.
