Moore Industries, North Hills, Calif., has released "Automation and Instrumentation Solutions for Power Plant Applications," a digital interactive line card that provides instrumentation solutions and applications for today's mature power plants. Topics include:
- Installing distributed I/O to circumvent extensive new wiring installation and to monitor temperatures of the boiler tube, burner tip and cooling pump, in addition to tracking tank levels and archiving data.
- Replacing and installing new signal transmitters, isolators and converters to convert legacy signals to standard 4 to 20 mA signals, and to convert low-level RTD and thermocouple signals to current signals that can better withstand transmission through a noisy plant.
- Using process controllers, monitors and backup stations as hot PID backups for critical drum-level measurements, and as remote manual stations or field controls.
