The Enetics GasComm sensor array* is an advanced safety monitoring instrument designed for installation throughout the natural gas distribution network. GasComm can be deployed in all remote points of a network (or augment existing SCADA systems) to monitor user-defined alarm conditions and trend day to day performance. GasComm provides an affordable and reliable means of better understanding the daily performance and readiness of your gas distribution pipeline network using simple, single-node IoT installations.

GasComm Sensor Array

The GasComm sensor array monitors and records five natural gas attributes directly from within the gas distribution piping system with a single sensor installation: 

  • bi-directional flow velocity and volume
  • static pressure
  • temperature
  • humidity
  • vibration 

Installed in 3” to 18” steel  or 4" to 12" PE pipelines using either Mueller, T.D. Williamson, or Georg Fischer hot tapping tool sets, the GasComm sensor array provides an affordable and reliable means of better understanding the operational readiness and safety status of your distribution pipeline network. 

The GasComm sensor array is certified intrinsically safe for use in Class 1, Division 1, Zone 0, Group C & D hazardous locations. The instrument is programmed locally or remotely to sample and collect data at user selected intervals. Remote alarm conditions are continuously monitored, immediately recognized and transmitted regardless of the programmed cellular call schedule.

Data Acquisition

The GasComm sensor array data can be captured two different ways:
Enetics GasTrack™ recording telemetry unit (RTU):**

  • Remote or urban installations where there is no onsite power or communications available
  • 5 year battery life
  • LTE / M1 cellular telemetry
  • NEMA 6 / IP67 packaging
  • Class1, Division2 internal intrinsic safety barriers included

Enetics GasComm Control Module (GCM):** 

  • SCADA site installations
  • ModBus 485 data polling via existing SCADA RTU
  • 12 to 28 Vdc externally powered 
  • Site cabinet or pole mount installation
  • Class1, Division2 internal intrinsic safety barriers included

*Patent pending
