New Remote Configuration Capabilities Enhance the SignalFire Productivity Story

Hudson, Ma. – One of the key benefits to using a wireless sensor networks in an upstream oil or gas site is the cost savings that can be realized when compared to traditional wired systems. SignalFire is releasing a new set of capabilities that greatly improves that already substantial advantage. The new Remote Sensor Configuration capability will permit users to configure sensors such as guided wave radars from their office thereby avoiding the need to send highly skilled employees into the field.

“One of the biggest advantages of wireless sensor networks in Upstream Oil and Gas is the speed with which it can be deployed in the field” said Scott Keller, CEO and Founder of SignalFire. “Our customers tell us they can set an entire system up in their shop and then deploy it in a fraction of the time it takes to wire a system in the field. That is real hard dollar savings.”  

“Until now, one challenge has been sensors and transmitters that needed to be calibrated in place such as guided wave radars. These require specialized configuration programs and an expert to configure them on site. SignalFire has broken this barrier with its new Remote Sensor Configuration Software. Users can now configure Vega Radars using PACTware ™ or Emerson Radars using RadarMaster™ software remotely over the SignalFire Wireless Mesh Network. Now you can configure systems from your office when a sensor needs attention rather than rolling a truck with a skilled worker” Keller remarked.

The Key benefits include:

  • Configure Sensors and from your office – No need to have an expert on site
  • Reconfigure network parameters remotely – No need to send a crew
  • Diagnose problems remotely – The crew knows what to expect when they arrive
  • Full two way communication, even to “sleeping nodes” – Optimize your production from your office.
  • Reduce Installation and Operating Costs – Less expensive than Conduit to install, trouble shoot, and operate

“We are really excited about this new capability; it is coming to market at just the right time when oil and gas operators are focused on reducing the costs of operations. Faster deployments, improved productivity and enhanced production is a hard combination to beat” said Keller.
