Product Overview

Many flow computers and devices store historical Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) data used for allocations and custody transfer. The EFM Suite for KEPServerEX is comprised of EFM drivers and the EFM Exporter for KEPServerEX. The EFM Exporter works hand-in-hand with EFM drivers to schedule the retrieval of EFM data from flow computers and RTUs and export to common industry formats like FLOWCAL and PGAS and customizable formats like CSV and SQL. All drivers include real-time data support for OPC-enabled applications like HMIs, SCADA, and Historians and IoT applications like Splunk.

EFM drivers collect real-time and EFM data from flow computers, devices, and meters. The EFM Exporter plug-in maps attributes to defined EFM parameters for upload into flow analysis software. The solution works with both gas and liquid EFM data, providing the same look and feel for both applications.
