Detechtion releases Enbase Asset Monitor


Detechtion Technologies, a global provider of condition monitoring products, has launched the Enbase asset monitor, a system for remotely monitoring the run status and location of natural gas and oilfield equipment.

The system, housed in a weatherproof and hazardous location-certified enclosure, determines an asset’s run status using a built-in accelerometer to detect vibration. It also tracks GPS coordinates to determine when the asset is in motion and to send proactive location updates.

The Enbase asset monitor sends messages through a satellite network, which has coverage throughout the oilfield. The system reports back to the Enbase dashboard, through which users can access data on their assets. The system runs on solar power batteries, which have a ten-year life.

The system is part of a family of Enbase products. It is applicable for monitoring natural gas compressors of lower horsepower, as well as rotating equipment.
