The Fusion4 MSC-L from Honeywell Enraf is the company’s most sophisticated multi-stream controller for loading products from refineries and chemical plants into transports such as railcars, tankers and barges.
Highly accurate, scalable and versatile, Fusion4 MSC-L loading controller offers a ground-breaking, intuitive device interface to enable every installation, operation and maintenance function to be controlled in the field using a large display and integrated keyboard that works as a complete hazardous area operating station. The controller can operate up to six loading arms simultaneously, providing safe, reliable control for road loading, as well as tank farm transfers and marine and rail terminal operations.
Richard Thompson, general manager of Honeywell Enraf explains that the Fusion4 MSC-L can control more streams with high accuracy than any other device, while the intuitive interface and display give those in the field full system visibility and control to get more done in less time.
Similar to the devices in the Fusion4 portfolio covering blending and additive control, MSC-L offers an innovative user experience. Based on mobile phone and tablet computing apps, on-screen icons make it uniquely intuitive, cutting training times and reducing the risk of human error. Combined with the installed keyboard, it offers simple, secure and fully functional control of the loading system from the unit itself.
Key features of Fusion4 MSC-L loading controllers include hazardous area, explosion-proof design; unique live data transfer in hazardous areas with safe, secure two-way data communication using the handheld Fusion4 LAD (Local Access Device) for rapid transfer of transaction data, configuration files and calibration records; user configurable and expandable I/Os; start-up in under one minute, with calibration wizards and zero downtime upgrades; real-time stream, I/O type and system diagnostics; and advanced alarm handling for twice as many alarms as any other available device.
The Fusion4 MSC-L loading controller is also compatible with Honeywell Enraf’s safe area device monitoring software package Fusion4 Portal for remote monitoring and configuration of hazardous area devices, as well as MID approved bill of lading printing, scheduled summary printing, alarm management and transaction audit trails to boost efficiency and compliance.
A modular design enables legacy Honeywell Enraf systems to upgrade cost-effectively, while multiple protocol libraries and communication network capabilities offer seamless, cost-effective integration with other industry standard terminal automation systems to avoid expensive alterations to existing equipment.
The Fusion4 MSC-L completes the Fusion4 portfolio to provide a comprehensive solution for loading, blending and additive control that includes the Fusion4 MultiPak multi-stream additive controller, Fusion4 MiniPak single-stream additive controller, and Fusion4 BioBlend and Microblender blend controllers.
