Biogas plant automation and monitoring

Biogas is a fuel gas generated in natural environments or through specific devices, due to the biodegradation reactions of the organic material. It is produced by the action of microorganisms and other factors, always in the absence of oxygen.

Biogas plants take advantage of that and treat the biomass to produce energy.
These plants have a lot of machines like fermentors, agitators or multiple kind of meters, successfully complete each part of the process.


Our customer's purpose is to centrally manage and monitor all steps of the biogas creation method. This will involve the following sections:

  • Implementation of the control system and the plant automation.
  • Installation of a screen for local control and management of the machine.
  • Implementation of sending data to the cloud

Multiple Communications available

Ethernet communication has a higher speed and bandwidth than options such as WiFi or GPRS.

Thanks to the dual Ethernet ports, the dual RS-485, WiFI, Bluetooth, CAN bus and other options, the Raspberry Pi PLC family can connect to numerous devices and to use multiple protocols and communication ports.

Data monitoring

Information can be displayed on Industrial Shields touch screens, which stand out for

  • monitoring all types of data, such as plant situation in real time,
  • displaying certain alarms and sensors history,
  • configuring all available parameters,
  • processing large data packets due to their high capacities and
  • working in many standard protocols.
