System Offers Wireless Remote Asset Shutdown in Challenging Environments

For challenging environments, such as oil fields, the Remote Shutdown System (RSDS) can shut down assets remotely with the fail-safe logic necessary for wireless operation of critical systems. Eliminating the need for costly conduit runs, the long-range (3+ miles) wireless telemetry system can be configured with either a PLC monitoring system or gateway-controlled standalone system that can monitor inputs and generate control commands autonomously.
The RSDS interfaces with any type of sensor and transmits the data wirelessly to a SignalFire Gateway. When operating autonomously, the Gateway generates commands and offloads data to a PLC. The Gateway can also be configured to send signals to remotely-located shutdown nodes that will shut-in the well.
