Enetics provides a range of monitoring solutions that provide utilities with necessary tools to create a proactively managed operation that will improve safety and system readiness.
** For additional information we suggest reading the following white paper, "MONITORING REMOTE GAS DISTRIBUTION FLOW AND PRESSURE WITHOUT SCADA, POWER, OR COMMUNICATIONS".**
The Enetics family of gas monitoring products is designed to monitor:
By monitoring the above parameters, your utility may acquire data and be quickly alerted to issues before they become full blown emergencies. Enetics gas monitoring products are reasonably priced and are intended to be deployed throughout the distribution system. You'll have your finger on the pulse of the entire system at any given time, even in remote areas where there is no SCADA, power, or communication installed.
Wireless, Battery Powered, Remote Monitoring
GasTrack is your first responder in the field.
The GasTrack Recording Telemetry Unit (RTU) interfaces with the Enetics GasComm® Sensor Array and Enetics Pressure Sensors to provide utilities with the information they need to improve and maintain system stability. The GasTrack RTU is designed to provide secure and reliable wireless natural gas distribution network monitoring without the need for power drops or radio networks. Fast alarm notifications (user-defined) and accurate trend data assures full situational awareness of emerging distribution network issues.
GasTrack utilizes fast-emerging narrowband LTE Cat M1 cellular network technology to provide secure (encrypted) and reliable data telemetry coupled with up to a five year battery lifetime. Simple to install, GasTrack eliminates the need for site maintenance and data collection visits, freeing your team to address more pressing issues.
The GasComm Control Module (GCM) allows GasComm sensor array data to be securely accessed by existing SCADA networks. Simple Modbus polling by Utility RTU's allows existing SCADA data pathways and security protocols to operate undisturbed. The GCM can interface the Enetics family of sensors (GasComm Sensor Array and Enetics Pressure Sensors).
The GCM can be polled by your SCADA RTU's as fast as every five seconds using Modbus 485 protocols. This allows data collection as required to conform with existing SCADA system protocols and security measures. Alarm threshold events are defined and recognized by thte Utility SCADA system. The GCM is intended to be installed in environments where external DC power is available, such as at a SCADA point.
The GasPoint recording telemetry unit (RTU) is designed to provide a simple and reliable upgrade from natural gas circular chart pressure recorders. Internal pressure and temperature sensors with direct connections to existing site hardware, encrypted cellular telemetry and a five year battery lifetime combine to provide utilities fast alarm notifications and reliable cloud-based performance trending. GasPoint provides a simple, paperless solution to improve situational awareness of emerging distribution network issues and daily asset performance.
Operate GasPoint in parallel with existing chart recorders to provide fast alarm notification capability, or replace circular chart recorders completely, rendering chart collections and translations obsolete.
The Enetics GasComm sensor array is an advanced, patented IoT based flowmeter that also provides static pressure, temperature, humidity, and vibration monitoring in a single-node. Class1, Division1 intrinsic safety certifications allow GasComm to be installed remotely throughtout the natural gas distribution network, acting as an affordable analytic safety monitor.
GasComm data can be captured by the Enetics GasTrack RTU, providing cellular telemetry, cloud-based storage, fast alarm notifications, and a five year battery lifetime, or by the Enetics GasComm Control Module (GCM) which interfaces to utility SCADA RTU's via simple Modbus485 polling.
GasComm can be deployed in all remote points of a network (blind spots, end-of-line, non-SCADA critical points) to monitor user-defined alarm conditions and trend day-to-day performance. GasComm is an excellent way to enhance your Distribution Integrity Management Programs (DIMP), providing an affordable and reliable means of better understanding the daily performance and readiness of your gas distribution steel or PE pipelines and improving situational awareness to minutes rather than hours or days.
The Enetics Pressure Sensors are available in both external (GasTrack RTU and GCM interface) and internal versions (GasPoint RTU interface). A wide variety of full scale pressures are available, ranging from 5 to 540 psi, and are fully IS certified to Class1, Division1 standards.
These external sensors provide a simple and affordable way to remotely monitor pressure and temperature throughout your natural gas distribution system without the need for power drops or radio networks.
