Whenever PLC/DCS/RTU equipment and field wiring is located where lightning strikes are likely to occur, it is essential to include protection. The Surge Protection board from Omniflex is a quick and effective way of safeguarding sensitive electrical instrumentation from the damages that can be caused by overvoltage and lightning-induced surges.
When Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust decided to collect energy consumption data in real time from more than 100 energy meters around its two hospitals, Bradford and St Luke's, it chose Omniflex to provide the server and communications infrastructure. Omniflex supplied and commissioned an on-site Omnergy data server and 13 metering gateways to communicate with more than 100 new and existing energy meters around the two sites.
Dulux in South Africa is a wholly owned subsidiary of AECI. As part of a strategy to improve plant efficiency, the company decided to engage the services of Omniflex, which has offices in South Africa, Australia and the UK. The company needed to provide direct control to vendors in the management of bulk chemical supply and on-site storage.
Omniflex can provide complete sitewide alarm management system in accordance to the requirements of IEC61508 and EEMUA 191 standards. These systems include the conditioning of the front end process signal through SIL rated Trip amplifiers and transmit these alarms over copper cable or via SIL2 rated Fibre optic Transmitters/Receivers (where Fibre optic cable is used) into SIL rated Alarm Annunciators and Sub 1 millisecond Sequence of Event Recorders.
The Technology Top 100 Awards are run annually with Top Companies competing for honours. A rigorous round of Interviews and evaluations are done by a team of adjudicators to select the qualifiers. From the list of Qualifiers a set of finalists are selected and re-evaluated for the Top awards in each category. Omniflex received runner up awards in two of the determining categories for the Prestigious Technology Top 100 Companies.
Glastonbury Festival is the largest 'Greenfield' music and performing arts festival in the world and a template for all the festivals that have come after it. Event organisers choose Omniflex Wireless Telemetry equipment to ensure water is delivered across the site effectively, efficiently and economically.
The OMNITERM LZI and LZD are current loop interface modules that can be inserted into any 4-20mA current loop to isolate the instruments in the loop and provide surge protection. They are designed to interface field mounted transmitters in remote applications where signal isolation and surge protection is required. Applications include interfacing for RTU's, PLC's etc. The LZI is a single channel device with additional flexibility and support for both 2-wire and 4-wire 4-20mA transmitters whilst the LZD is a dual channel device for increased packing density, suitable for multiple 2-wire transmitters.
The ability to monitor environmental conditions easily and reliably is important in many areas of the pharmaceutical industry. From the moment raw materials are received to final product delivery, it is crucial to ensure that factors such as temperature and humidity remain within acceptable limits. In the case of an out-of tolerance event, it is essential to be able to quickly pinpoint the location and time of violation in order to address the problem and get back on track. It is also necessary to be able to provide industry, government and regulators with the data they require in the event of an audit.
This DIN rail mounted combined PSU/Battery back-up system from Omniflex is ideal for providing 12 or 24Vdc power when mains power is not available. Applications include RTU's, data-loggers, remote monitoring systems, alarm systems and remote access systems, to name just a few.
The well proven Conet token passing deterministic network designed by Omniflex over 20 years ago has always enabled plant engineers to find the most cost-effective way of transferring data from the remote point of measurement to the point of monitoring or control.
Omniflex have released a 24 way IEC61508 SIL 1 Alarm Annunciator, which can be used to replace the now obsolete Robinson Alarm logic Units. These Old Robinson ALU units, many of which are in operation but are no longer supported can now be replaced with minimal disruption and cost.
Omniflex has released a range of Signal Isolators, the Omniterm LZ series with integrated surge protection designed specifically for the Signal Conditioning Market where isolation and surge protection are required together.
The CONET Network was designed by Omniflex over 25 years ago realising that one of the biggest problems facing plant engineers was finding the most cost effective way of being able to transfer information from the point of measurement to the point of monitoring or control due to the high cost of new cable runs within plants. Omniflex's CONET network and the Maxiflex I/O system has since been installed in hundreds of applications around the world and allows plants to make use of existing cable for plant data communications with massive cost savings, on some applications this saving has been up to a million pounds on installation costs of new cable , which also includes the cost of trenches, cable trays and scaffolding etc.
OMNIFLEX has introduced the EasyView 500 Series and 8000 series of HMI screens to their process control and alarm management product range. The EasyView 500 Series is ideally suited for cost effective operator interface applications with the 8000 series designed for the more advanced operator interface applications. Both ranges are designed for use in harsh industrial environments.
In accordance with the requirements of the UK Nuclear Installations Inspectorate, every nuclear site licensee in the UK must justify their safety case in order to operate in the UK. This involves substantiating the safety certification of each instrument involved.
Providing both 24Volts and 12Volts in battery standby systems can be inconvenient and costly so Omniflex has introduced the DUAL Voltage PTL Charger series which is a combined power supply and true 12/24Volt Split Battery Charger.
In an age when a generation of technology is probably less than 12 months it is barely conceivable that the Omni16 Alarm Annunciator has remained at the forefront of its market niche, flashing its way into control rooms of industry around the world for more than 25 years. For the benefit of non omni16 users, the annunciator is packed full of user selectable features that enable practically any alarm annunciation function to be accomplished.
Omniflex has developed the Omni2, a compact wall mounted visual alarm indicator designed for hazard warning in high risk environments. The Omni2 is used to safeguard against personnel inadvertently entering plant areas where abnormal conditions are present.
The Omniflex Dual Trip Amplifier is designed for safety critical applications, with set points reached using 4-20mA, 0-10V (1-5V), Universal Inputs such as TC, mV, RTD, V, or frequency signals, producing an alarm to either alarm annunciators, PLCs or DCS Systems.
The Teleterm 'Silent Sentry' from Omniflex is a new low cost, off the shelf, state-of-the-art Alarm Monitor capable of monitoring a wide range of input types and sending SMS Alarm messages upon detection of an alarm condition. The Silent Sentry has 12 direct Binary or Analogue Inputs, plus a Modbus port allowing alarms from a variety of sources to be monitored. Up to 64 different messages can be sent from one unit.
These MAXIFLEX P3-R CPUs are designed specifically for redundant remote I/O and control applications, where high availability is required in hot standby configurations. The high availability system is constructed by combining two identical P3-R CPU's, each with their own power supply and base, to create independent Primary and Secondary Master Controllers.
Omniflex has introduced what it believes will solve voltage incompatibility problems in remote telemetry applications. The PT L50C-D is a combined power supply and dual charger that runs from a universal 85 to 264V AC input and is designed specifically for those applications that need to maintain both 12 and 24V systems.
Omni-X remote displays from Omniflex provide from 8 to 120 points of annunciator display in a standalone panel-mount package. They are designed to be used with a remote alarm annunciator logic such as an Omni16C RLU for safety-critical alarms, or to be connected directly to a PLC or Scada system for simple operator-friendly display of essential alarm information.
