- Gas delivery system,
- Measurement instrumentation,
- Acquisition and control central,
- Management and supervision software.
The supervision software is installed on a PC. The acquisition and control central is composed of Compact Fieldpoint modules of National Instruments. Gas analyzers are Emerson Process.
Compact Fieldpoint acquisition central and its cards
The supervisor, on the PC, is linked to central by a serial link (RS232). The central commands 0/24V switches to route gas to the analyzer. The central commands analyzers by 4-20mA.
Operating system: MS Windows XP
Supervisor programing: Graphical programation with LabVIEW of National Instruments
Database: remote managed by WinDev
Supervisor-remote database comunication: Citrix network via FTP gateway
How does it work?
The bench is composed nine analytical analyzers. To test the quality of a gas, it must send it to the analyzer which is sensitive to its characteristics.
The gas analyzers are routed through a network of pipes. By actuating the valves manually or by the supervision software, it is possible to direct gas.
