One of the most critical items for an optimum performance and operability of a Custody Transfer Metering System is the Metering Control System. A Metering Control System is primarily responsible for transforming the available accurate field data in valuable information which ultimately leads to strategic decisions for operation and maintenance of the metering system. With our large installed base and experience with Metering Control Systems since the first generation of Flow Computers back in the early 1980s, ODS Metering Control Systems are renowned for their high reliability, full (synchronized) redundancy, easy operator interface and open architecture. As an independent Metering System integrator we can meet end users preferences for Flow Computer, PLC and HMI manufacturers and supply a Metering Control System fully in line with existing equipment (for ugrade projects) and operator infrastructure.
Optimum maintainability and upgradeability
By using proven industrial components and flexible software platforms for our Metering Control Systems we ensure optimum maintainability and upgradeability. Making use of the latest development of electronic field instruments, our Metering Control Systems are often supplied with Condition Based Maintenance to utilize real-time data to prioritize and optimize maintenance resources. Together with Remote Diagnosis, Condition Based Maintenance will reduce your operational cost and ensure availability of your precious metering data and equipment. Offering shadow calculation, online validation and other forms of Performance Monitoring contribute in lower overall uncertainty and higher reliability of your metering applications. Our Metering Control solutions scope depends on the project requirements and can be:
Complete integrated Metering Control Systems;
Supervisory Computers and Metering HMI Systems;
Flow Computer cabinets.
Metering Control System upgrade
Due to its fast changing environment Metering Control Systems needs regular performance checks and upgrades. The primary objective for upgrading your Metering Control Systems is to enhance the reliability, efficiency and safety environment of your metering system according the latest standards. ODS offer replacement of obsolete Flow Computers, Supervisory servers and HMI Software to the latest in the market. Design, installation and testing can be done in parallel to your existing system in order to avoid any loss of communication.
