Small Scale PROFIBUS PA at the UK’s PROFIBUS June Conference

James Powell of Siemens Canada explains

In this presentation we will be discussing an application we did with one of our customers in the northern USA on a series of small-scale oil and gas applications. This was a hazardous application that used state-of-the-art fracking techniques to remove oil from the ground and store it in a small tank farm.

The customers first used Multi-drop HART to get the level of the tanks from a SITRANS LR250. At first this worked fine, but ended up having a number of problems. To solve these problems, we had them switch to Profibus PA using multi-vendor automation equipment. This ended up working very well. Through this application, we saw how much the market has changed in connection to Profibus and how Profibus technology is not just for large projects anymore!
