Cat S61 smartphone is packed with integrated tools of the trade

Including FLIR thermal imaging camera with improved image quality, temperature range and live streaming; indoor air quality sensor; and laser-assisted distance measurement

Cat Phones has announced the launch of its new flagship device, the Cat S61. It is the upgrade to the Cat S60 with enhanced FLIR thermal imaging capability, built-in laser assisted distance measuring, and an indoor air quality sensor. The Cat S61 is the most advanced tool yet to help get the job done. The Cat S61 boasts an integrated FLIR thermal imaging camera with enhanced software for greater image contrast, expanded temperature range to 400 degrees Celsius, and an upgrade from VGA to High-Definition detail from the visible camera providing unmatched image optimization using FLIR's MSX technology.  

These new features and enhancements help enable a new set of use cases where portability, connectivity, and greater image quality are necessary. Vehicle diagnostics, asphalt monitoring, and higher temperature equipment monitoring are now possible with the Cat S61, in addition to the many traditional use cases that include detecting heat loss around windows and doors, spotting moisture and missing insulation, identifying over-heating electrical appliances and overloaded circuitry, and seeing in complete darkness or through obscurants such as light fog or smoke.

The MyFlir application has also been upgraded on the Cat S61. New, sought-after features including live streaming of thermal imaging, on-device Tips and Tricks and a Community Forum help users get the most out of the S61's thermal imaging capabilities.

The Cat S61 also includes an indoor air quality sensor from Sensirion to alert users to high levels of indoor air pollutants (Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs) in their working environment. Common sources of VOC's include paints, solvents, carpets, furniture and cleaning products, all common in the environments typical to Cat phone users. The Cat S61 will keep watch over indoor air quality levels and inform users when an unhealthy environment is detected, allowing them to make timely decisions such as opening a window to improve ventilation or taking a break. The sensor can also provide humidity and current temperature readings.

The Cat S61 also comes with laser assisted distance measurement which can measure point-to-point distances up to 10m, then calculate area, and switch between Metric and Imperial measurement. All data is saved within the image so alternative measurement estimates can be taken or adjustments made without returning to the site.

This combination of features is highly valued by Cat phones customers. Electricians, for example, can use thermal imaging to analyse a fuse box or wiring system, and the laser assisted distance measurement to estimate how much cable is required for the job. They can also live stream results back to base should they need further advice from a colleague. 

The Cat S61 has a large 5.2-inch FHD screen, protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and optimised for outdoor use. It also boasts leading rugged credentials. It is IP68 dustproof and waterproof up to 3m for 1 hour. It conforms to MIL Spec 810G, and it is built to survive repeated drop-tests onto concrete from 1.8m. All these features are important to Cat phone customers who often use their phones to read and format plans and invoices while out on the job.

Peter Stephens, CEO Bullitt Group, global mobile device licensee for Caterpillar, said:

"We know that 60 percent of Cat S60 customers use the integrated thermal camera at least once per week and the temperature and resolution improvements found in the new Cat S61 will open up thermal imaging to many more users and use cases. Packing in even more genuinely useful tools of the trade means there's simply no other smartphone out there that can do everything the S61 can. We are incredibly proud of it."

Frank Pennisi, President of the FLIR Industrial Business Unit, said: "We are excited to support Bullitt Group through our Thermal by FLIR partner program and integrate our micro thermal imaging camera on the next generation Cat S61.  The Cat S60 proved to be an incredible vehicle for introducing more people to the benefits thermal imaging and we look forward to expanding that further with the Cat S61."

5 reasons why organizations are outsourcing pipeline control room services

Houston-based Remote Operations Center (ROC), a leader in oil & gas control room operations, provides outsourced control room services to over 6,000 miles of pipelines, spanning crude, natural gas, saltwater disposal, and refined products.

A pipeline control room is the central nervous system of oil and gas operations - continuously receiving and processing tremendous amounts of sensory data, quickly highlighting important information requiring action and using that information to coordinate and control operations to mitigate risks and optimize performance. With heightened public attention on pipeline assets, growing regulatory oversight over operations, increased market competition amongst operators, and an ever-aging asset base, the ability to effectively and efficiently manage all aspects of pipeline operation has become increasingly difficult. More than ever there is a pressing need to ensure each pipeline is operated safely, reliably and compliant with the latest regulations.

Alberta calls for production cuts to combat oil price gap

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has announced a production cut of 8.7 percent to take effect on oil producers in the province January 1, 2019. – Government of Alberta, via Flickr; used under Creative Commons license

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has announced a temporary slowdown in oil production in the province to try and combat low prices for Albertan oil driven by a lack of shipping capacity to U.S. refiners. That gap is costing the country more than $80 million daily, according to the Alberta government, which blames the troubles largely on the federal government's inability to move pipeline construction forward.
