With energy demand peaking around the world and many power generation technologies emerging, these new modules address small- to medium-size turbomachinery for alternative energy and oil and gas upstream processes.

For turbomachinery applications, the new control modules include a servo module that directs the rotational speed of turbomachinery and offers high-speed protection by detecting anomalies, such as excessive rotation speeds.

In effort to improve maintenance efficiency for remote wells in the oil and gas industries, the CPU module has been enhanced for the FCN-RTU controller and now has the same error-check and correct (ECC) memory found in high-end PCs, the company says. And memory capacity has been doubled to facilitate the long-term storage of gas volume data.

The company also upgraded the DNP3 software to comply with the latest specifications and cover a wider range of SCADA applications.
