ELEKTON-10.1 Controller for ELEKTON-04 switchboard, softstarter (-07, VSD-05)

Certificate of Conformance

  Purpose and field of application

The ELEKTON-10.1 controller enables automating the operation of the pumping unit as much as possible and optimizing the oil production process.
The controller is installed on the front panel and has a built-in HMI (20 characters per line). A large number of symbols allow displaying messages not in coded form, but with the full term which makes it easy to understand the information.

  • Functions, modes and set points are entered via a membrane keypad..
  • The controller has a 16 Mbyte non-volatile memory (128 000 records) and thus can store information for an extended period of switchboard operation.
  • The controller has a built-in Watt-Hour Meter. A daily log of power consumption is kept covering the last 2 months of operation. The power consumption log also shows daily operating time and the daily flow rate (if a flow meter is installed).
  • Two built-in RS-485 interfaces are used for used for communication via Modbus RTU protocol.
  • The switchboard operation data can be read out to a laptop via the RS-232 interface or to an external USB stick for further analysis of the pumping unit operation.
  • Current parameters are recorded at four adjustable intervals.
  • The controller hads an HMI-LCD display with increased brightness and contrast.
  • The controller has a reliable internal heating system and additional heating for the LCD indicator for operation at low temperatures.
  • The controller keys are backlit to ensure easy operation in the dark.
  • Windows compatible software is used for data acquisition and processing, setpoint adjustment, and database organization in the controller that allows presenting and printing various parameters in tabular and graphic form for statistic purposes.
  • Various devices can be connected to the controller, such as the downhole monitoring system (17 various types), GSM-modem, Watt-Hour Meters (SET-4TM.03M, Merkuriy-230), analogue sensors (pressure, temperature, flow, etc.), electric contact pressure gauge.
  • The controller can be reprogrammed using an external USB stick without having to stop the artificial lift equipment.
  • LAN port for connecting to Ethernet network via Modbus TCP protocol.

  • showing in the event log the cause that prevents the switchboard turning on;
  • showing the date and time of setpoint changes in the event log, including the previous and subsequent values;
  • logging of active and reactive power consumed (daily and total from the time of resetting);
  • periodic preset recording the values of supply voltage if it does not allow turning on the switchboard;
  • displaying the name of protection that will cause tripping with indication of minutes and seconds left till the tripping of the ESP motor;
  • automatic frequency change to a preset value over a specified period of time;

  • Two modes to unlock ESP:
    1. specified number of voltage surges with preset output current frequency, forward direction of rotation;
    2. specified number of voltage surges with preset output current frequency, various directions of rotation – “surging”.
  • programming of analogue inputs on any of the standard levels: 0-4 V; 0-10 V, 4-20 mA;
