Monitor Remote Assets with the Enbase Asset Monitor

March 4, 2020
Detechtion Technologies launched the Enbase Asset Monitor in October, 2019, designed for remotely monitoring the run status and location of oilfield assets. The Asset Monitor is the newest member of the The Enbase product line and is geared towards lower horsepower rotating equipment including natural gas compressors, pump jacks, pumps, gensets, and other oilfield assets that move around frequently, such as chemical tanks and totes. Since its launch, all the deployed devices have been closely monitored to ensure that they are transmitting the run status correctly for the assets they are monitoring regardless of the conditions. A particular group of devices installed on pump jacks situated northwest of Grande Prairie highlighted the resilience and reliability of the devices despite the extreme (and expected) weather conditions in Northern Canada by continuing to communicate even with low temperatures (-30°C/-22°F) and snow cover. On the opposite end of the weather spectrum, devices installed in South Texas installed on low HP compression assets reported continuously and accurately. This display of reliability gives us the confidence and backing that these devices will function across an array of asset types and climates around the globe.

In conversations this spring, we learned that some great features already available in the latest (or even prior) versions of our products are things that our users don’t know about! I’d like to highlight three Enbase features that you might not know exist… and might want to use.

Thought of the Day -  How to Cut the Call Center Cord...

May 31, 2019
With the release of Enbase Dashboard Callout Alarm Acknowledgement functionality, Detechtion shifted from a one-way notification system to one that can be configured to escalate alarms through a defined hierarchy until the alarms are acknowledged or the highest escalation level has been reached.  This functionality removes the need to rely on a call center to review all alarms that come in and decide when and who the calls should be routed to and whether and when they should be escalated.

May 14, 2019
Enalysis™ is a powerful and unique, web-enabled software tool for compressor fleet management and optimization. But to capture the maximum benefit, we need to feed the right set of operating parameters to Enalysis™ so that we can understand exactly how efficiently your equipment is operating.

Thought of the Day - Fieldlink™ + Enbase™: Automating Field Workflows

February 26, 2019
  Thought of the Day Fieldlink™ + Enbase™: Automating Field Workflows Fieldlink  and  Enbase  can be used together in  a number of  ways to automate activities that would otherwise need to be done manually.  Installing an  Enbase  hydrostatic pressure transducer connected to an Enbase Hub on a lube oil tank could eliminate the manual process of  a driver perform ing  a manual inventory check each week on the tank to determine when to refill. Instead, the tank’s level  would be monitored automatically and when  the device reports a low tank level,  Enbase  could trigger the creation of a work order in  Fieldlink .  T h is integration would allow the  driver  to visit the site  when a refill work order appears in Fieldlink for the current day versus making unnecessary trips.
