Measurement station

Measurement stations are based on programmable controllers. They do very complex processing of the PT signal, which makes the intense use of controller resources. We work with Bernecker&Rainer model line X20 for their impressive power and scalability.

PAS can deliver a complete measurement stations solution for application on the pipelines in various environments (mild-climate, arctic, mid-East…).

  • Cabinets for off-grid locations, where only solar panels and wind turbines can provide the power
  • Standard indoor or outdoor cabinets for 230 or 24 V installations
  • DIN-rail design of measurement station for integration into existing or third party cabinets
