A Rugged Field-Mountable Platform Flexible System

The PAC8000 RTU (Remote Terminal Unit) Controller, a rugged, field-mountable platform, combined with the 8000 Process I/OTM, offers flexible sys­tem design and high system availability. The PAC8000 RTU Control system can utilize any HMI package, including Proficy HMI/SCADA iFIX and CIMPLICITY. The controller is ideal for all types of RTU applications, including Oil & Gas pipelines and wellheads. It is designed for use in the harsh environments, operating over a temperature range of -40ºC to +70ºC, and is resistant to 30g shock, 5g vibration and G3 corrosive environments. Access to timely and accurate mission-critical information from fixed assets such as oil and gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, fluid storage tanks and utility meters, can eliminate critical gaps in oil and gas operations, resulting in higher productivity and long-term growth. The PAC8000 RTU’s relative low power makes it suitable for applications using Solar Power.
