QATAR Petrochemical Company Ltd. - Design, manufacturing and commissioning of High Speed Datalogging System

The purpose of the HSDL is to monitor the operation of two Low Density Polyethylene reactors. The HSDL acquires 140 voltage, current and thermocouple channels and 60 digital channels at a sampling rate 1 kHz per channel. It also detects configurable events on any channel or channel combination. The core of HSDL is built around National Instruments products. The HSDL is using three SCXI signal conditioning chassis and one fully loaded PXI data acquisition system. The data acquisition sample clock is generated by a PXI-6608 timing module synchronized with GPS. The acquired data is stored on a Hewlett&Packard RAID5 server. The HSDL software is written in LabVIEW. It allows the configuration of all features of HSDL, performs acquisition, event detection and processing and data viewing in many different forms for easy analysis.
