The Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP protocol works with the Autosol Communication Manager (ACM) to bring operators the assurance of accurate and reliable data from the field of industrial automation. Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP, an EFM protocol, works to measure the flow of oil/gas in the field.

When measurements are collected, the raw data can then be used for billing purposes for companies to utilize. The Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP device itself collects current data values and store archived history in the device. It stores hourly, daily, alarm and event/audit archives that ACM can retrieve and pass on to programs such as Flow-Cal or Quorum PGAS.

ACM can be utilized by polling Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP data from Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) by using Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP’s native protocol. The data is then sent back from the device and can be presented in a manner that is optimal for operator control screens in a Human Machine Interface (HMI) environment.

ACM works to read current data values from Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP to be delivered to HMI systems, giving customers immediate reads of their most valuable data out in the field. This enables operators to see data in the present moment, as it is happening. This ensures operations can run smoothly, accurately and efficiently in the most crucial industrial executions.

ACM works with Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP to give you instantaneous value from the field

As the master, ACM will initiate communication with the Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP device and will deliver the data back to the customer through ACM’s capabilities.

ACM also provides the ability to read the complete configuration of Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP devices, and can write the configuration back to the device if commanded to do so. This gives operators the flexibility, yet complete control over his or her devices in the field – offering a way to directly communicate with those devices thousands of miles away.

In the world of SCADA, many different brands of devices have been put into use over the years, each with its own separate protocol. AUTOSOL’s ACM communication hub has developed many custom drivers to support legacy SCADA and Automated Meter Reading (AMR) systems, within this one software application. Since ACM supports many protocols, it reduces the upfront costs associated with upgrading your industrial controls systems. This allows ACM’s multi-protocol ability to support the integration of the older legacy devices with new emerging metering technologies.

As a leader in the industrial automation industry, AUTOSOL takes communication and security between devices seriously. Combining the flexibility of AUTOSOL’s ACM and custom drivers means companies are not obligated to construct and update a SCADA system with one brand and its protocols. With our leading software products and hardware equipment you will be able to transmit and receive data with your Emerson Bristol Babcock BSAP PLC and RTUs as well as all other SCADA devices.

ACM is FIPS 140-2 Security Level 1 validated using AUTOSOL SSL encryption
