Semaphore, a Servelec Group Company, will showcase the Kingfisher and TBox, the smart Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) for automation and measurement applications in the oil & gas industries at ENTELEC 2014. The exhibit takes place at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, May 20 – 22, 2014.
Semaphore’s exhibit in booth 126 will feature TFlo™, the industry’s fastest and most secure gas flow computing program that provides measurement and control plus access by users, anytime, anywhere. Housed in a solid and compact package, the solution incorporates integrated 3G cellular communications, Web server, immediate notification technology, and mobile device connectivity.
Meeting or exceeding Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Directive 17 and American Petroleum Institute (API) Chapter 21.1 requirements, TFloTM operates from approximately -40 to +70°C temperature range and is approved for installation in Class I, Division 2, Groups A to D hazardous areas.
TFlo™ software is a standard application that supports any combination of meters that are common in well sites and pipeline installations, including Coriolis, positive displacement, rotary, orifice, turbine, ultrasonic, V-Cone, and Wafer Cone. TFlo™ software’s flow and energy calculations include the latest versions of AGA3, AGA5, AGA7, AGA8 Gross & Detail methods, and AGA11 (mass to volume calculation).
Complementary to the TFlo™ is Semaphore’s TBox LT2, the processing engine and hardware platform for TFlo™. TBox LT2 is an all-in-one SCADA system featuring integral Web server, 3G wireless communications, and a complete cyber security application suite, all tightly integrated with programmable automation, alarm notification, data logging and Ethernet communications in a rugged module. TBox LT2 leverages instant notification via e-mail, SMS text and FTP but also provides traditional, SCADA communications for gas measurement using the Enron Modbus protocol. Also on exhibit will be Semaphore’s Kingfisher line, which provides an advanced automation platform for SCADA system solutions, including redundant configurations, intelligent I/O, and open programming that is compliant with IEC 61131-3. Kingfisher RTU products are well suited to large, demanding measurement and control applications that employ central stations.
