The RAF is a natural gas station automation system, allowing automated control for any type of gas station without the need for field intervention by an operator.
The system consists of a control panel, incorporating an Emerson operating SW and a 7” touch screen, which operates automated control loops through a dedicated actuator integrated into the active regulators of a Natural Gas PRMS (Pressure Reducing & Metering Station). RAF can be easily retrofitted into any existing PRMS requiring only to modify the existing sensing lines. The RAF could be easily connected, to communicate through existing RTUs or other controllers, via Modbus RTU/TCP protocol, to existing SCADA systems. Also an embedded webserver interface is available.
