Limited cellular and radio infrastructure will no longer be a problem in receiving, acknowledging, and reacting to alarms.
Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
Tulsa-based eLynx Technologies, the leading provider of web-based monitoring and field automation services to the oil and gas industry, introduces i4D to the market. The i4D is a four-input discrete alarming device that uses Iridium’s global satellite network for its communication, so it can be used in even the most remote locations.
The i4D antenna only has to have a view of the open sky in order to communicate status changes associated with compressors, tank levels, pumps, and any other well site equipment. Real-time alarm notifications are then transmitted to operators via text, email or voice callout.
Reliability is critical with alarming devices. The i4D has two built-in features that enable operators to rely on it for their critical alarming needs. The device will transmit a signal once a week to let you know it is functioning and the device will send its battery level every time it transmits data.
“The i4D is in high demand where critical alarms have to get through to the operators,” said Ray McDaniel, Manager of Sales Engineering for eLynx. “Limited cellular and radio infrastructure will no longer be a problem in receiving, acknowledging, and reacting to alarms.”
Since 2000, eLynx Technologies has provided real-time data collection, production reporting, trending, well monitoring and control via the Internet for the oil and gas industry. The company services more than 300 exploration and production companies and operates in more than 25 states. Headquartered in Tulsa, eLynx also has support offices throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, North Dakota, and West Virginia.
