Detechtion Technologies, a global provider of condition monitoring products, has launched the Enbase asset monitor, a system for remotely monitoring the run status and location of natural gas and oilfield equipment.
The system, housed in a weatherproof and hazardous location-certified enclosure, determines an asset’s run status using a built-in accelerometer to detect vibration. It also tracks GPS coordinates to determine when the asset is in motion and to send proactive location updates.
The Enbase asset monitor sends messages through a satellite network, which has coverage throughout the oilfield. The system reports back to the Enbase dashboard, which users can access data on their assets. The system runs on solar-power batteries, which have a 10-year life.
The system is part of a family of Enbase products. It is applicable for monitoring lower horsepower natural gas compressors, as well as rotating equipment.
