Application Areas

Remote Monitoring and Contol

AutoLog RTUs (Remote Terminal Units) are used in many industry areas all over the world. Bellow is the list of our most active application areas. Anyway AutoLog RTUs are not tied to any specific applications; using its modular I/O and freely programmed application program and high connectivity, it can be used in almost any remote supervision and control application. Certified AutoLog System Integrators can focus on certain application area using their special knowledge.

AutoLog RTUs for Cathodic Protection Monitoring

AutoLog Cathodic Protection (CP) monitoring system monitors CP rectifier’s impressed current, voltage and optionally pipe-to-soil potential. RTU performs CP rectifier measurements and sends data to centralized SCADA server via base station and backhaul network. Users can interface with the system using normal Web browser. >>

AutoLog SaveLight – Street light management system

SaveLight gives up to 65% energy savings by optimizing burning times and dimming at off-peak traffic hours. It also gives substantial maintenance cost savings by detecting burned lamps.     It allows remote street lights control so lights can be easily controlled ON/OFF on special situations. SaveLight is based on AutoLog ControlMan. >>

OEM solutions

FF-Automation designs and manufacturers tailor made PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) and RTUs for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers). Optimizing the I/O and integrating HMI and other special features into compact module gives very cost effective solution. Customers like pump station-, autoclave- or special visitor counter solution manufacturers gets FF-Automation as flexible, reliable and long term partner. >>

Other applications

AutoLog RTUs are used successfully in many remote monitoring and control application areas like oil & water tank level monitoring, gas wellheads and pipeline stations, pumping stations, environmental monitoring, flood detection systems, building automation, bus pits, district heating systems, base station and power station monitoring, cold station monitoring, flow meter monitoring etc.

Remote Monitoring & Control (Abstract)

Today’s technology gives efficient and reliable ways to monitor and control distant and widely located sites remotely from the office. During recent years Remote Monitoring Systems have been replacing manual measurement recordings. Manual measurement recording is huge job which reserves expensive work forces for travelling between widely located and difficult to access sites. >>
