Case Studies2140 Case Study: Pioneer Energy

What's in North Dakota that's as bright as the city of Chicago in the nighttime sky? It's flare gas from oil fields, a waste stream going up in smoke.

Pioneer Energy is changing that waste into resources, with their Mobile Alkane Gas Separator (MAGS). Mounted on a trailer, the complete system can be trucked to a well site, installed in 24 hours, and remotely monitored.

This case study explains how the system processes flare gas and how it is controlled and monitored.

White Papers2107 Using Commercial Off-the-Shelf Mobile Devices in Industrial Automation

"Russian Roulette" or the "New Normal"?

Automation engineers on LinkedIn heatedly debate the pros and cons of using standard COTS smartphones and tablets in industrial settings. Meanwhile, industry analysts like Gartner and ARC Advisory Group forecast tremendous growth in BYOD (bring your own device) usage.

Are there reasons to use off-the-shelf mobile devices in industrial automation? What are the advantages and disadvantages, and what do you need to think about before moving ahead? This white paper discusses environmental, safety, security, connectivity, and other factors to consider and includes specific advice for choosing device types suited to your industrial application.

Other Technical Documents1970 Wireless Ad-Hoc Mode Configuration Technical Note

OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring units and Opto 22 Wired+Wireless™ SNAP PAC controllers and brains can communicate wirelessly with other wireless devices in either infrastructure or ad-hoc mode.

In ad-hoc mode, wireless devices communicate directly with each other, peer-to-peer. Ad-hoc mode is less secure but useful for temporary wireless connections, because it can be set up quickly.

This technical note shows you how to configure ad-hoc mode on the OptoEMU Sensor, controller, or brain using PAC Manager. It also includes steps for configuring ad-hoc mode on a smart phone.

Use this technical note with the AdHocConfig.zip download, which includes a file to make configuration in PAC Manager easier.

Product Data Sheets & Overviews1990 OptoEMU Sensor DR (Demand Response) Data Sheet

The OptoEMU Sensor™ Energy Monitoring Unit with Demand Response (DR) monitors the electrical energy used in your facility and then signals electrical equipment to turn on or off in response to a request from an electric utility, demand response aggregator, or curtailment service provider (CSP).

To reduce peak energy use that triggers demand charges, electrical equipment loads can also be shed on predefined usage thresholds.

The OptoEMU Sensor DR makes it easy to reduce your energy costs by managing energy consumption, taking advantage of demand response programs, and gaining control over your energy pricing.
