Honeywell Enraf announces new loading controller

By

American multinational Honeywell Enraf has introduced the Fusion4 MSC-L, a multi-stream controller for loading products from refineries and chemical plants into transports such as railcars, tankers and barges.

The company describes the new product as "highly accurate, scalable and versatile", and said in a statement that the Fusion4 MSC-L offers "ground-breaking, intuitive device interface to enable every installation, operation and maintenance function to be controlled in the field using a large display and integrated keyboard that works as a complete hazardous area operating station."

The controller can operate up to six loading arms simultaneously, providing control for road loading, as well as tank farm transfers and marine and rail terminal operations.

“The Fusion4 MSC-L lets operators do more with less,” said Richard Thompson, general manager of Honeywell Enraf.

“It can control more streams, with high accuracy, than any other device, so users need fewer units. The intuitive interface and display give those in the field full system visibility and control to get more done in less time.”

Like the other devices in the Fusion4 portfolio covering blending and additive control, MSC-L offers a user experience based on mobile phone and tablet computing apps.

"Combined with the installed keyboard, it offers simple, secure and fully functional control of the loading system from the unit itself," the company said.

“The new controller is a hands-on tool for day-to-day terminal operations,” said Thompson.

Honeywell Enraf said other MSC-L features include:

  • A hazardous area, explosion proof design;
  • Unique live data transfer in hazardous areas, with safe, secure two-way data communication using the handheld Fusion4 LAD (Local Access Device) for rapid transfer of transaction data, configuration files and calibration records;
  • User configurable and expandable I/Os;
  • Start-up in under one minute, with calibration wizards and zero downtime upgrades;
  • Real-time stream, I/O type and system diagnostics;
  • Advanced alarm handling for twice as many alarms as any other available device; and
  • Compatibility with Honeywell Enraf’s safe area device monitoring software package Fusion4 Portal for remote monitoring and configuration of hazardous area devices, as well as MID approved bill of lading printing, scheduled summary printing, alarm management and transaction audit trails to boost efficiency and compliance.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
