Electro 80 has worked closely with Emerson Remote Automation Solutions (RAS) ever since they acquired Bristol Babcock in 2006. At that time Electro 80 had been the Australian distributor for the Bristol Babcock range of RTU and Flow Computers. Post the acquisition of Bristol Babcock Electro 80 has benefitted from the association with Emerson RAS in gaining access to the wider range of the RAS RTUs and Flow Computers that now includes; Bristol ControlWave and ControlWave Micro, FloBoss 103, 104, and 107, ROC 800 series, Daniel S600 and S600+. Electro 80 incorporates the Emerson RAS product range in to the solutions we promote to our Oil and Gas clients, these solutions typically cover the following:
- Station RTUs
- Station Master Controllers
- Fiscal Transfer Flow Computers
- Fuel Gas Metering
Electro 80’s development of our own Library of function blocks has allowed us to enhance the stand applications for the off the shelf Emerson RAS hardware platforms to the benefit of our Oil and Gas clients many of whom have now standardised on the Electro 80 Libraries and Emerson RAS hardware platforms that ensure compliance with both Australian and International Standards.
Electro 80 engineered Western Australia’s first Citect SCADA system back in the late 1980’s, in a demanding mining and materials handling application.
Today, Electro 80 is a Citect Platinum System Integrator, the highest accreditation awarded by Citect and is recognised as one of WA’s leading providers of Citect based SCADA engineering solutions. Electro 80 clients benefit from the knowledge of staff with Citect experience dating back to the late 1980’s and the original version 1.00 through to the latest versions with experience in some of the most demanding SCADA applications.
This tradition has continued through to the latest Citect Plant2Business and Plant2Net products, with Electro 80 having engineered WA’s first installation in late 2001.
In June 2005, Electro 80 was among the very select group of invited Citect integration partners to attend training on Citect Industrial Information Management (IIM) suite and are currently working on a number of well developed IIM opportunities.
