Enhanced version of Stardom control system
July 2017, PLCs, DCSs & Controllers


Yokogawa has developed an enhanced version of the Stardom network-based control system. This latest version supports Windows 10, and the high speed CPU module comes with a new function that enables Java applications to run on a Stardom controller. In addition, an oil flow rate calculation function has been added to meet the needs of oil and gas well operations. With the addition of Windows 10 support and other new functionality, Yokogawa is demonstrating its ongoing commitment to meet the changing needs of its customers.

Stardom is a network-based control system with the principal components being the FCN autonomous controller, the VDS web-based HMI and the FAST/TOOLS SCADA package. Since first introducing Stardom to the market in 2001, Yokogawa has continued to improve the functions of this system based on the concept of ‘Faster, Stronger, Smarter’.

With this latest release, Stardom has been enhanced as part of Yokogawa’s continuing effort to meet the evolving needs of its customers, including oil and gas well and pipeline operations. This release includes functionality for the on-site management of data that reduces the amount of communications traffic between central monitoring rooms and facilities distributed over a wide area.

Enhancements of this new release include Windows 10 support and a simplified system configuration. A Duolet function that enables Java applications to run on the FCN controller is now embedded in the high-speed CPU module, so the controller can be used to manage files and transmit data. This simplifies the overall system configuration by eliminating the need for a PC. In addition to an existing function for calculating the gas flow rate, a function for calculating the oil flow rate based on American Petroleum Institute (API) guidelines has been added. This new function makes it possible to quantify the amount of water produced from an oil or gas well, which serves as a KPI for monitoring age-related degradation in performance and assists in improving recovery efficiency.

Stardom is an open network control system consisting of components for control, operation and monitoring functionality, and its combination of the reliability of a DCS and the versatility and economy of a PLC is highly acclaimed. The FCN autonomous controller, the core of Stardom, is robust and can be easily implemented in a dual redundant configuration. The controller is widely used as an intelligent remote terminal unit (RTU) not only in applications that require high reliability and versatility/economy, such as small- to medium-size plants, but also in upstream oil and gas well and pipeline applications. Applications include monitoring, operation, control, data collection and data storage for small to medium size manufacturing facilities.
