Designed to manage the fluctuating requirements of the natural gas industry, the Thermo Fisher Scientific AutoMATE expands from a simple flow measurement application to a full measurement and control system. This easy-to-use device accurately measures one to four meter runs and can be customized per your initial specifications, then later adapted to meet additional application needs. Run switching, injection systems, gas samplers, a PID/proportional control and a plunger lift control can be incorporated to ensure optimum effectiveness, particularly at complex well sites.
Equipped with a 16-bit microprocessor and expandable onboard memory, the AutoMATE offers outstanding accuracy and repeatability to ensure the demands of AGA 8 Detail and other equations are met. Its user-friendly design facilitates setup and installation, enabling configuration on-the-spot or remotely via a personal computer or laptop. Once in operation, the AutoMATE continuously provides reliable, ongoing communication of valuable flow data from remote, unmanned locations.
– Differential signal devices: Orifice, stacked orifice, V-cone and Verabar
– Linear signal devices: Turbine, auto-adjust turbine and ultrasonic
– Supports wide range of I/O and communication expansion options
The AutoMATE supports a wide variety of host communication protocols, including the Thermo Scientific in-house standard as well as several popular and specialized protocols. In the event of an alarm condition, a configurable call-out function permits the AutoMATE to call the host system or a pager to send an immediate notice.
Like all Thermo Scientific gas flow computers, the AutoMATE is built to endure the most extreme environmental conditions. The boards are rigorously tested to withstand more than 120 consecutive, indirect lightning strikes, measuring up to 6,000 volts/3,000 amps each. In addition, temperature cycling from -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F) is conducted. Any board failing these tests will not ship. A NEMA 4X industrial grade enclosure further safeguards the unit, ensuring superior reliability regardless of location.
