Numerex introduces new remote systems for oil and gas field automation
Numerex, a provider of interactive and on-demand machine-to-machine (M2M) enterprise solutions, has launched a portfolio of monitoring solutions preconfigured for oil and gas well sites.
AVIDwireless allows users to monitor and control pump site machinery remotely utilising M2M technology. This offering fits any size remote well site, from small marginal wells to large multi-location fields.
The end-to-end monitoring solutions are designed to improve performance, reduce costs, and improve efficiencies for oil and gas well operations. These remote monitoring solutions act as a gateway for checking, analysing, and reporting data from smart sensors; providing information from all of the assets in the field. The three new AVIDwireless preconfigured solutions include:
• AVIDwireless tank monitoring - Constant monitoring of capture-tank levels allows automated pump shutdown when a high-level condition is detected. Control pumps remotely from the website or by utilising a mobile device in the field. Alerts and notifications can be sent immediately, keeping operators informed and assisting in avoiding capture-tank issues.
• AVIDwireless generator monitoring - Wireless remote monitoring, control and diagnostics for power generator systems help maximize uptime through monitoring of fuel levels, power, runtime, and by providing the physical location of equipment. Mitigate performance risks through remote monitoring of battery level, block heater performance, and other common failure points.
• AVIDwireless site automation - Designed for multi-site applications, this solution offers constant monitoring and remote control of levels (tank, pressure, temperature, pump status, flare, ESD events) utilising AVIDSmartNodes and an AVIDdirector controller. The solution features Modbus protocol for easy connection with existing equipment. Operators can deploy multiple AVIDSmartNodes, with a range of 2km; permitting control of multiple wells from a single AVIDdirector.
