The Natural Gas and Oil industry is continually driven by cost cutting measures and the need to gain more
operational efficiencies and visibility to regulatory requirements. This paper summarizes a solution in which
wireless instruments integrate with other conventional equipment to offer a rapidly deployable advanced well
optimization system.
Wireless instrumentation products provide cost-effective and easy to install alternatives to traditional, hardwired
sensor sites. These rugged field units are designed for the majority of Oil & Gas applications and for
installations ranging from general purpose to Class I Div I hazardous locations with extreme temperature and
humidity ranges.
True wireless instrumentation is comprised of self contained, self-powered field units providing process data to
a centralized base radio through an unlicensed band, spread-spectrum, and frequency hopping wireless
connection. Networks of up to 100 field units (900MHz version) can be created and polled by a single base
radio using a secure, proprietary “Industrial Wireless” protocol, with a typical range between field unit and base
radio of up to 5000ft (-1500m). With the capability to scale up to as many as 256 wireless instrumentation
LANs, Wireless Instrumentation networks easily accommodate future expansion plans.
Wireless Instrumentation eliminates complex, hardwired installations and makes it easy to deploy and monitor
sensor networks across a wide range of applications. Typical wireless instruments support industry standard
Modbus protocol to ensure interoperability and compatibility with a wide range of Oil & Gas equipment from
third party vendors such as but not limited to Schneider Electric, ABB, Emerson, Thermo, etc … Wireless
Instruments are available in a wide range of sensor and input configurations to fit many applications including
pressure, level, acoustic, switch input and output, turbine meter and analog inputs.
