Low power consumption modules

02 February 2009

Yokogawa Electric Corporation has announced several low power consumption modules for use with field control node (FCN) autonomous controllers, a core element of the Stardom network-based control system. The modules include a CPU module with embedded I/O and communication ports, a power supply module, and a base module that is half the size of its predecessor.

Design features such as embedded I/O and communication ports, the CPU module consumes less power and can be powered by a solar battery, making it ideal for use in locations without a power-supply infrastructure.

The modules are made of durable parts that enable the FCN autonomous controllers to reliably control and monitor production facilities under temperatures as extreme as –40°C and +70°C and at altitudes as high as 3000m.

The autonomous capability combines the features of control, monitoring, and data logging and transmission, FCN controllers are ideal for use in geographically distributed Scada applications such as natural gas and oil wells. Both real-time and on-site data recorded on the controllers can be transmitted via a mobile phone network or other technology used to transmit data in the field.
