MOXA: Remote Gas Pipeline Tunnel Temperature Monitoring System
One of Singapore's leading engineering and system integration providers needed exactly the right solution for a challenging gas pipeline application. With experience in assembling systems for many different vertical markets such as oil and gas networks, factory automation, and building automation, this system integrator realized that monitoring the temperature of a gas pipeline tunnel is crucial for safe operations. In the confined space of a tunnel, temperature rises easily, and the overheating could cause pipeline fractures that could lead to gas leaks or even explosions. Meanwhile, the long and narrow dimensions inherent to a tunnel meant that more home run cables must be installed to link all the temperature gauge data acquisition I/O devices back to the pipeline's SCADA system, increasing cabling costs. With these stakes and in these conditions, the simple act of regularly taking the temperature transforms into a formidable yet absolutely necessary requirement. System Requirements • Real-time tunnel temperature monitoring to provide early excessive heat warnings • Data acquisition and system management with SCADA system • Ethernet data acquisition system, but with efficient, cost-effective wiring
MOXA: Visual Management on Gas Tankers
Gas tankers are massive ships with a limited crew, making them extremely difficult to monitor. Video surveillance systems, which use a large number of widely distributed devices, and fire prevention systems are both crucial elements of a gas tanker monitoring system.The system used for this application is a legacy analog CCTV surveillance system that is completely independent from the main monitor and control SCADA system. With this system, the administrator responds to an event by first using the SCADA system to locate the event, and then accesses the appropriate surveillance camera from the CCTV system to view the location. The goal is to upgrade the system so that only one step is required. This is done by integrating the CCTV surveillance system into the SCADA system, in which case the surveillance system becomes a SCADA sub-system, making centralized control and monitoring possible.System Requirements- Upgrade to an IP video surveillance system for integration with the existing SCADA system- Live video display (through the SCADA system)- Enable events in the SCADA system to automatically trigger live video display- All the devices need to be of rugged design and have an anti-explosion defense
