Numerex announces remote solutions for oil and gas field automation
Numerex, has announced the launch of its AVIDwireless™ portfolio of monitoring solutions preconfigured for Oil & Gas well sites. AVIDwireless, a Numerex Solution, provides cost-effective, wireless M2M solutions for managing complex, interdependent, multi-device industrial M2M deployments. This new offering fits any size remote well site, from small marginal wells to large multi-location fields.
The AVIDwireless intelligent, end-to-end monitoring solutions 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 maximise 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 2 km; permitting control of multiple wells from a single AVIDdirector.
“Numerex is a pioneer in developing innovative M2M monitoring solutions that leverage data, network connectivity, and cloud-based applications to optimise the performance of equipment and environmental conditions in a number of vertical markets including oil and gas, water/wastewater, and industrial equipment industries with deployments worldwide. This new offering simplifies the purchase decision by providing standardised solutions for tier 2 and tier 3 oil producers,” said Stratton Nicolaides, chairman and CEO of Numerex. “The AVIDwireless Solutions, centered on our award-winning service delivery platforms, provide a single intelligent, flexible, wireless, remote control solution that enables connections to a wide variety of wireless and wired sensors for continuous monitoring of equipment and environmental conditions.”
