The GasPoint recording telemetry unit (RTU) is designed to provide secure and reliable wireless natural gas distribution network monitoring. Fast alarm notiﬁcations and accurate trend data assures full situational awareness of emerging distribution network issues.
GasPoint is provided with one or two internally mounted static pressure sensors. These internal sensors can range from 1 PSI full scale to over 500 PSI full scale. Field interface is a common 1/4” swagelock bulkhead fitting. Internal pressure sensors are available in either high accuracy ATEX intrinsically certified versions or relaxed accuracy, non-certified versions. This solution provides users with a wide range of monitoring options. GasPoint provides an optimal, unattended solution for replacement of circular chart recorders, rendering chart translations obsolete.
The GasPoint RTU utilizes fast- emerging narrowband LTE/M1 cellular network technology to provide secure and reliable data telemetry coupled with up to a ﬁve year battery life. Simple to install, GasPoint eliminates the need for site maintenance and data collection visits, freeing your team to address more pressing issues.
User deﬁned attributes can be sampled at intervals as short as once per minute with interval averaging as short as five minutes. Recorded data is transmitted on your desired call schedule, typically once every day, to the Enetics Tier 4 cloud server. All data telemetry is securely encrypted using AES 128 security standards. Readings that exceed user-defined alarm thresholds are identiﬁed on-site during sampling and notiﬁcations are sent out immediately, regardless of the programmed cellular call-in schedule, allowing personnel and control room notiﬁcations to approach real time.
The EneticsEdge™ User Interface software provides secure access to collected ﬁeld data from the control room, the oﬃce, or remote on-site locations using common apps. Fielded recorders are monitored with GIS mapping methods and configurable analytic dashboards. Alarm status, site groupings, trends, statistics, call-in histories, multiple audit trails, and battery status. Individual or group unit conﬁgurations are easily viewed or updated over the air, eliminating repeated site visits. The EneticsEdge analytic software is included with the GasPoint recorder.
The GasPoint RTU, cellular modem, antenna, and battery are integrated into a small NEMA 6/IP67 polycarbonate enclosure weighing less than two pounds. Provisions for mounting and locking are included. External cellular antennas are available.
