ABB 266 Modbus Multivariable
The ABB 266 MODBUS multivariable provides precise and reliable measurement of differential pressure, static pressure, temperature and diagnostic information once per second, to flow computers and RTUs. Individual device MODBUS addresses can be easily configured using the optional display or using the XMV Interface application in ABB’s Totalflow flow computers or RTUs. This application creates a “plug and play” interface to the multivariable sensor and indicates any active alarms that may be present in easily understood text. The combination of ABB’s Totalflow flow computer or RTU and one or more ABB 266 MODBUS multivariables makes an ideal solution when multi-tube measurement is required and when the transmitters must be located in a Class I, Division I hazardous location.
- Two wire RS 485 MODBUS communications link
- Requires two additional wires for power
- Input voltage: 10.5 to 30 VDC
Application: Emergency Shutdown Valves for Burner Fuel in a Refinery
Description: In most refineries, a shut-off valve is placed in line to allow operators to shut down process lines in the event of an emergency. These are commonly referred to as ESD.
ESD valves are usually activated by a solenoid valve and are also equipped with limit switches for position feedback. In normal operation, ESD valves typically remain unused – remaining in the same position for many months or even many years. This lack of use causes concern with operators that the valve may not close when called on.
Special test procedures have been developed and are used in most production environments which offer an effective and practical method for testing shut-off valves to ensure they will work when needed. For example, partial stroke testing is a common practice, allowing valves to be partially stroked for testing purposes, without causing major interruption or down-time to the production process.

ABB Upstream Oil & Gas Conference
ABB & Winn-Marion to Present Upstream Oil & Gas Conference in Denver, CO
Denver, Colorado, October 24, 2014 – Winn-Marion Barber, LLC and ABB Inc. announced they will co-host the Upstream Oil and Gas Conference on November 12 – 13, 2014 at Grand Hyatt Downtown in Denver, Colorado.
Karen Moreau will speak about local advocacy where oil and gas issues are concerned and how you can wield your influence in your community to promote the production of America’s greatest fuel resource.
Hands-on training will be offered for both basic and advanced XFC products. Along with the main presentations, there will be training courses available for specific products including: Coriolis, Pressure, RTU/FCU, MagMeter, Temperature, Wedge, XMV, Orfice, Level, Swirl and NGC.
The seminars are offered at no charge to professionals interested in advancing their knowledge of instrumentation and control products, and automation and measurement, as they relate to the oil and gas industry.

Smart LACT System
The LACT control panel is the electrical brain of the LACT unit and controls the operation of controls, shutdowns and monitoring of the system. Winn-Marion can retrofit existing LACT models, or design a system catered to customers’ specific needs.
Accurate custody transfer requires precise measurement functions – level, temperature, density and BS&W. The accuracy of these functions are dependent upon the equipment. Winn-Marion, with their powerful partnership with R.W. Lyall, can implement a complete, LACT system.
- Configurable Security Systems
- Start/Stop Level or Flow Control
- Cold Climate Package Available
- Reduced Gain/Loss Cost Adjustments
- Remote Access Available
ABB CoriolisMaster Mass Flowmeters
ABB’s CoriolisMaster FCB330 & 350 compact coriolis flowmeters feature low pressure drop, high capacity and intuitive display.
Suitable for gas entrainment, and designed for most upstream and midstream oil and gas flow applications. With only one meter, it measures flow rate, density, temperature and concentration. As some of the most compact coriolis mass flowmeters on the market, and with no up or downstream piping required, they can be installed in tight spaces.
Wellhead flow measurement with ABB’s CoriolisMaster reduces measurement maintenance by up to 90%.
- Coriolis mass flow advantage – multivariable measurement of mass flow, density and temperature in one device
- Compact size with no up or downstream piping requirements – get the benefits of coriolis mass flow in tight spaces
- Low pressure drop – save 25% on pump energy costs compared to other brands
- Wide measurement span in a single meter – other brands require two meter sizes to meet all applications that costs more in spares and installation
- Easy to use – features ABB’s unique common HMI for easy set-up and commissioning
