Pressure Sensor Wireless, yet Affordable
Signal Fire Wireless Telemetry introduces the Pressure Scout, an intrinsically safe wireless pressure sensor that supports pressure monitoring and alarm reporting as part of the Signal Fire Remote Sensing System.
The first in a line of wireless integrated sensors, the Pressure Scout consists of a pressure sensor integrated with a wireless node and internal battery. This new unit comes as a low-cost alternative to conduit-wired or other wireless solutions. Applications for the Pressure Scout include well tubing and casing pressure monitoring, tank level monitoring and compressor station status monitoring.
As part of a wireless remote monitoring and control network, the Pressure Scout provides a robust, long-range (up to ½ mile) transmission to the Signal Fire Gateway where pressure data becomes available via a Modbus RTU or TCP interface. Available in standard pressure ranges, the Pressure Scout performs rapid (5 sec) pressure sampling with configurable alarm reporting (report by exception). Units offer local pushbutton zeroing. Operable in temperature ranges from -40ºC (104ºF) to 80ºC (176ºF), the Pressure Scout operates in challenging outdoor environments, sustaining signal strength through terrain, structures, or weather. Class 1, Division 1 certification is pending.
