The GasTrack 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.

Sensor Interface

GasTrack may be used as a single or dual channel recorder. The recorder interfaces with the Enetics family of sensors which includes internal pressure sensors, external pressure sensors and GasComm®, a multi-attribute sensor. GasTrack is intended to interface with one or two pressure sensors, one or two GasComm sensors or a combination of pressure sensors and GasComm sensors. This solution provides users with a wide range of monitoring options.

Wireless Communications / Five Year Battery Life

The GasTrack RTU utilizes fast-emerging narrowband LTE/M1 cellular network technology to provide secure and reliable data telemetry coupled with a five year battery life. Simple to install, GasTrack eliminates the need for site maintenance and data collection visits, freeing your team to address more pressing issues.

Collecting Data

User defined attributes can be sampled as often as once per minute with interval recording as short as five minutes. Recorded data is transmitted on your desired call schedule, typically once every day, to the appropriate cloud server. Data hosting can be securely provided by Enetics private cloud or Customer on-premise server.  Readings that exceed user-defined alarm conditions are identified at the remote site and notifications are sent out immediately, regardless of the programmed cellular call-in schedule, allowing personnel and control room notifications to approach real time.

Data Analytics

The EneticsEdge™ User Interface software provides secure access to collected field data from the control room, the office, or from remote on-site locations. Fielded recorders are monitored with GIS mapping methods and configurable analytic dashboards. Alarm status, site groupings, trends, statistics, call-in histories, multiple audit trails, cellular signal strength, battery status, and 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 GasTrack recorder.

Packaging

The GasTrack 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.
