In-chassis Oil and Gas Flow Computer Cuts Costs

Lower Capital Spend, Optimize Production, Reduce Support Costs

It used to be that you’d need multiple RTUs and standalone flow computers for your multi-well pad operation, with long wiring runs to the control house and individual programs for everything. You’ve probably thought these were necessary evils. But we have good news: With ProSoft Technology’s in-chassis flow computer for Rockwell Automation® PACs, you can simplify your operation, decreasing your capital spend and maintenance costs. This integrated solution helps you reduce your support costs, optimizing your resources. Sending your transmitter data wirelessly reduces your installation costs and can eliminate downtime associated with cutting buried cables by avoiding trenching.
