Honeywell Process Solutions introduces a new gas metering management software and service solution for the gas industry.
The RMG Gas Metering Management software is a tailored solution that enables natural gas and measuring station operators to monitor operations on-site or remotely, provide data analysis and facilitate remote maintenance, reducing operational costs and improving the accuracy and reliability of measurements.
Compatible with both RMG devices by Honeywell as well as third-party measurement devices, the RMG Gas Metering Management system enables users to accurately determine the technical condition of all gas measurement devices in a metering station using a single software package. By remotely accessing measuring devices, the solution simplifies planning and organisation, and reduces costs as it keeps station visits to a minimum.
According to Frank Michels, general manager, RMG Gas Metering, a major objective for developing the new solution was to give customers the freedom and flexibility to choose the best combination of measuring devices to meet their unique needs, regardless of the manufacturer. With the RMG Gas Metering Management solution working seamlessly with both RMG and third-party measuring devices, customers all over the world can create highly tailored solutions, but still monitor everything through one central, reliable system.
Honeywell has already tested the system with prospective customers including Schwaben Netz GmBH in Germany producing positive results. Michael Stoeckle, director of Gas Network Control, Schwaben Netz GmbH expressed satisfaction with the beta test of the Gas Metering Terminal module of the software, finding it intuitive to use, as well as robust and stable.
RMG Gas Metering Management system
The system employs a framework of gas metering management, analysis and terminal modules that can be installed without the need for customised code changes and are easily configured. Dynamic system displays allow for detailed schematic diagrams of the monitored station, and enable technical and accounting personnel to access and act upon current flow, pressure and temperature data and alarms in real-time.
The Honeywell RMG Gas Metering Management software will initially be available in English and German.
