The Lufkin SAM Modbus Protocol is one of the many protocols that the Autosol Communication Manager® (ACM) supports. In an industry of ever-changing SCADA, many devices speak their own versions of Modbus, but ACM speaks to them all.

How it works

The Lufkin SAM Modbus Protocol typically works with Plunger Lift/Pump-Off Controllers in some of the most secluded areas. This communication ensures that some of the most vital data from the Lufkin SAM Modbus Protocol can still be delivered to the control room for analysis.

ACM and Lufkin SAM Modbus Protocol

The Lufkin SAM device will store historical data in its hardware. This includes time, flow and pressure information to be used for internal purposes. The information is then used for accounting purposes utilizing software such as Flow-Cal and Quorum PGAS. This allows operators to retrieve easily-transferable data in the field office from devices in the field.

By using ACM, companies can assure that some of its most legacy devices can operate in an ever-changing world of SCADA and Modbus. To ensure your company is getting exact data from the field, you can trust that ACM will pair with your Lufkin SAM Modbus Protocol.

Autosol Communications Manager (ACM) 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 speaks to devices in their native protocols, making it easy to add devices, including Lufkin SAM, to a SCADA system and ensuring information is consistently being transferred.

Because ACM isn’t dedicated to one specific protocol, it is able to interact with  Lufkin SAM devices as well as many others. Companies will reap the benefits the Lufkin SAM 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 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.

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