Distributed RTU™ Network


Key Benefits:

  • Reach First Production Faster
  • Optimize Facility Development Costs
  • Improve Operations Efficiency
  • Maximize Lifetime Production and Yield

The Distributed RTU Network is a distributed control solution that allows seamless wireless integration of multiple field controllers. It integrates Emerson’s FloBoss™ 107 and ROC800-Series with radio technology that provides transparent data connectivity to enable shared, distributed control across a wide geographical area.

The Distributed RTU Network targets:

Production Applications   Transmission Applications
  • Production Monitoring
  • Wellpad Control
  • Artificial Lift
  • Tank Management
  • Metering Skids
  • Wellhead Measurement
 
  • Station Control
  • Metering Stations
  • Pressure Control
  • Leak Detection
  • Compressor Stations
  • Corrosion Monitoring

Reach First Production Faster
The Distributed RTU Network helps users to:

  • Eliminate wiring and trenching requirements across the wellpad, reducing the time and people required to get up and running
  • Accommodates last-minute project changes by adding additional field controllers as needed
  • Use simple configuration tools because all RTUs in the network are “browsable,” eliminating the need for Modbus mapping across controllers

Optimize Facility Development Costs
The Distributed RTU Network can help achieve the lowest total installed costs while delivering industry leading performance, based on several key benefits:

  • Standardized wireless architecture that can be used on a single wellpad or across multiple sites, reducing wiring, trenching, and installation costs n
  • Reduced engineering costs through simple, efficient tools and a templating process to enhance repeatability
  • Simplified deployment to reduce the time in the field for installation, configuration, and commissioning

Improve Operations Efficiency
The Distributed RTU Network allows users to:

  • Increase reliability via local intelligence with the ability to make local logic decisions at the point of use
  • Have easy, cost-effective integration of additional measurement points for increased site visibility, including remote integration of Wired and WirelessHART devices for advanced instrument diagnostics
  • Add wells, equipment, or functionality to a site simply through the scalable nature of the Distributed RTU Network; add a new node and it automatically integrates into the existing site
  • Embed control close to process operations while enabling rapid response to process changes in the most robust architecture for responding to process upset conditions

Maximize Lifetime Production and Yield
The Distributed RTU Network provides:

  • An easy, cost-effective integration of additional measurement points for increased site visibility and ultimately, better control
  • Local control to ensure the fastest response time for process optimization
  • Reduction of disruptions to production by expanding without downtime to existing controllers
