App Note: Monitoring a Remote Geothermal Steam Well for Power Generation
Operations at a remote geothermal steam well are monitored by a PLC from the power plant. C&I personnel need to transmit conditions from the wellsite to the control room 2km away. A wireless communications network is available for Ethernet remote I/O. The modules can be installed at the wellsite for telemetry purposes.
Remote communication via a 951EN-6012 Ethernet/IP module to an Allen-Bradley CompactLogix™ PLC. They need to monitor three discrete inputs and two analog inputs. One Acromag® 951EN-6012 combination I/O module will accept these five inputs and report over the wireless network back to the PLC.
