No industries have more demanding requirements for safety and reliability than the Mining, Quarrying, Oil & Gas Extraction sectors. The infrastructures are vast, the conditions extreme and the environment remote.
Reliability is the critical successful factor to monitor a remote network infrastructure. In addition to redundant network systems with failover capability, the network equipment must comply with industrial standards to certify an ability to operate in environments with varying temperatures, corrosion, and vibration.
In addition, these industrial facilities are looking to improve efficiencies in data communication by connecting PLCs, RTUs, sensors, and SCADA systems over Ethernet.
Perle industrial products are designed in strict accordance with globally accepted standards for use in subsea, topside, onshore and hazardous locations
Perle has been recognized by companies in the Mining, Quarrying, Oil & Gas industries for its reliable ‘plug and play’ device networking hardware. Here are just a few examples of how our Media Converters, Serial Terminal Servers and other device networking hardware meet the needs of these customers and their system integrators.
Device Servers integrated into Master Control Stations on oil platforms enable critical serial to Ethernet communication between topside and subsea equipment
To monitor water pollution produced during industrial production processes Jorin uses Perle Media Converters to transmit Gigabit IP Camera images over fiber in high temperature environments.
Perle IOLAN Device Servers provide a Modbus communications gateway between the RS485 serial network of the Variable Speed Drives and the SCADA Ethernet based network. This enables onshore and offshore personnel to monitor and control the output of pumps on oil production platforms.
Geo-hazard and seafloor debris data gathered by the SBI on the ocean floor is transmitted to the surface for pipeline route assessment via Perle Serial to Ethernet Device Servers.
Perle IOLAN Terminal Servers collect raw data from GPS receivers and transmit corrected data to a remote network communications center where it is converted from IP to serial.
