RTU Integrationwith Remote Connect

Simplify Your RTU, PLC and Flow Computer Integration with Expanse

In the past, setting up gas flow measurement systems required multiple components. Typically, you could only find best-in-class flow computers that lacked good programmable logic controller (PLC) functionality or vice versa. Expanse now offers the best of both worlds in one device, combining Schneider Electric’s superior PLC software (Unity Pro) with the SCADAPack RTU and Realflo. The result is a single unit, versatile flow computer that is easily integrated and well suited to a wide variety of oil and gas, water, and wastewater applications.

This combined unit is ideal for automation applications requiring flow measurement meeting API compliance requirements, a PLC for process control and an RTU for SCADA applications. The joint hardware and software technologies provide custody transfer flow measurement for one to ten flow runs. It converts an RTU into a full functioning flow computer while enhancing the RTU’s process logic capability.
