Recent releases of Seeq enable larger deployments through scalability features in the software, and making the Seeq application easier to use. Scalability features in R19, the most recent release, include parallelization of complex calculations across CPUs, administration tools for performance optimization, and increased control and visibility for users to facilitate their efforts with real-time progress indicators. R19 also includes usability features focused on capsules, the innovative data objects in Seeq for working with single or multi-dimensional time periods of interest.

Wireless inclinometer from SignalFire monitors tank hatches and pump jack motion

SignalFire Wireless Telemetry introduces the TiltSCOUT, a new, patent-pending, intrinsically safe wireless inclinometer for tank hatch detection and pump jack motion monitoring. The innovative device helps mitigate environmental and safety risks associated with accidental emissions from tanks by monitoring and reporting the status (opened, partially opened, closed) of the tank's hatch. The built-in, three-axis sensor continually monitors the hatch and wirelessly transmits status if the tank hatch is moved. This feedback can help operators avoid or minimize environmental and unsafe gas emissions from a tank.
