Open Network Control System

September 19, 2013

Yokogawa Stardom control systemSTARDOM is an open network control system consisting of components with control, operation and monitoring functionality. The autonomous controllers at the core of STARDOM have the same control and monitoring functions found in a PLC as well as the information distribution functions of a PC. They are widely used as intelligent remote terminal units (RTU) in distributed applications such as natural gas and oil wells and pipelines. When used in combination, FCN and FCN-RTU autonomous controllers and the FAST/TOOLS SCADA software give increased flexibility in distributed applications.
