OpenTAS Supports Latest TechnipFMC Preset Load Controller

Published 15 February 2018 | By Implico

Successful completion of integration tests between Implico’s terminal management system and AccuLoad® IV

Starting immediately, the OpenTAS terminal management system is also compatible with TechnipFMC's new metering and control system, AccuLoad® IV. International software and consulting company Implico successfully completed the integration tests recently, thus further expanding the broad range of hardware devices that the OpenTAS automatic software supports in the oil and gas loading domain.

Over a period of around three months, OpenTAS manufacturer Implico conducted extensive tests with TechnipFMC's latest metering and control system. Tests carried out by the IT experts included general communication between hardware and software, display input and output, loading control on the AccuLoad® IV via OpenTAS, and the processing of measurement and visualization data. In addition to testing OpenTAS compatibility, Implico also ensured that AccuLoad® IV is compatible with TTS700, a ready-to-use, plug-&-play software specifically designed for microLoad® and AccuLoad® hardware offering selected OpenTAS functionalities for truck loading.

"Many of our OpenTAS and TTS700 customers are using AccuLoad® devices in their tank terminals and refineries," said Frank Petersen, Head of OpenTAS Automation at Implico. "Thanks to the positive integration tests we are now able to ensure that their solutions will continue to work seamlessly if they migrate to AccuLoad® IV."

First load computer with a touchscreen

The AccuLoad® IV has been available on the market since 2017. Equipped with state-of-the-art processors, the computer ensures faster loading processes and data transfers. It is also the world's first load computer with a touch display for simplified use. Installations using the predecessor model can be upgraded easily and quickly.
