How it works
The PCS Plunger Lift Modbus Protocol generally works with Plunger Lift/Pump-off Controllers in some of the most remote locations. ACM R/T SCADA will retrieve data from the PCS Plunger Lift using the Modbus Protocol and deliver it back to the control room or corporate office in real time — as ACM R/T SCADA is an OPC server. The PCS Plunger Lift Systems’™ software delivers monitored information, delivering current data about tubing and casing pressures. shut-in and sales times, plunger arrival and flow rate, according to its site.
Only AUTOSOL’s ACM retains historical data.
ACM R/T SCADA ensures that the operators are able to determine “the time needed for the plunger to reach the bottom and/or the pressure needed for the plunger to lift the liquids to the surface” by securely and reliably communicating with the PCS Plunger Lift device, according to information from its site.
ACM R/T SCADA extends companies’ SCADA systems abilities
For over 30 years, AUTOSOL (Automation Solutions) has been building custom drivers to ensure the efficient and reliable transfer of commands, programs, data and information between control systems and endpoint SCADA devices like RTUs and PLCs. ACM R/T SCADA speaks to devices in their native protocols, making it easy to add devices, including PCS Plunger Lift, to a SCADA system and ensuring information is consistently being transferred.
Because ACM R/T SCADA isn’t dedicated to one specific protocol, it is able to interact with PCS Plunger Lift devices as well as many others. Companies will reap the benefits the PCS Plunger Lift offers while saving costs associated with having to update an entire SCADA system to use devices that all speak the same protocol.
Combining the flexibility of AUTOSOL’s ACM R/T SCADA and custom drivers means companies are not obligated to construct and update a SCADA system with one brand and its protocols. As a leader in the industry, AUTOSOL takes communication between devices seriously.
