If you're in the oil and gas industry, you're aware that, flow computers and devices from different vendors store historical EFM (Electronic Flow Measurement) data that is used for analysis, custody transfer and production optimization.  To that end, oil and gas companies use several EFM flow measurement analysis packages such as Flow-Cal, Quorum PGAS or even CSV or SQL to store and analyze that collected EFM data.

In this video blog, I'll show you how to get started using our EFM Exporter plug-in for TOP Server to poll and export collected EFM data from various flow computers for Wonderware applications.

Watch this video to learn step-by-step how to get started using the TOP Server EFM Exporter Plug-in included in the EFM Suite, including basic setup, for collecting EFM history data and exporting it to one of the supported analysis packages (Flow-Cal, Flow-Cal Transaction Queue, PGAS, CSV or database) for Wonderware applications.

Just to summarize, in this video, I've shown you:

  1. How to add an EFM Polling Group.
  2. How to add a meter from a flow device configured in TOP Server to the EFM Polling Group.
  3. How to add an Exporter to the EFM Polling Group:
    1. Flow-Cal Exporter
    2. Flow-Cal Transaction Queue Exporter
    3. PGAS Exporter
    4. CSV Exporter
    5. Database Exporter
