Control & Monitoring of a Frac Truck Application

Pyramid Solutions’ BridgeWay Gateways are powerful and flexible product that enables connectivity from Automation Control Systems to Engine and other Vehicle and Equipment Control Systems.

Application: Frac trucks use a diesel engine-driven, high pressure pumping system to perform the fracking operation (pumping fluid into the ground) that releases previously inaccessible natural gas and oil.

Problem: Operators are looking for a way to monitor and control a diesel engine and transmission via a standard Automation Controller (PLC). The fracking operation requires that the diesel engine and the transmission be controlled and monitored during the fracking operation by the Automation Controller as opposed to manual operation or wired analog control.

Solution: The BridgeWay gateway allows the Automation Controller to receive and send messages, which enables direct access to network data and the ability to perform control operations, such as adjusting the engine speed and shifting the transmission during the fracking operation.
