PROGRAMMABLE ALARM TRIPS

Moore Industries’ SPA2 Programmable Current/ Voltage andRTD/Thermocouple Limit Alarm Trips have received FM Approval, allowing them to be used in hazardous locations. The SPA2 alarm trips provide on/off control, warn of trouble, and provide for emergency shutdown by sending up to four relay outputs when a monitored process signal falls outside a user-selectable high or low limit. Available SPA2 models accept input signals from transmitters, temperature sensors, resistance and potentiometer devices, and direct millivolt sources. They provide two or four independent and individually-configurable alarm relay outputs. Using on-board controls or the company’s free PC Configuration Software, each individual alarm trip relay may be programmed as a high or low limit process alarm, rate-of-change alarm, input fault alarm or self-diagnostic alarm.

Fibre Optic Well Monitoring Offers Drillers Ability to Predict Conditions

Real-time monitoring of underground well conditions is becoming increasingly important in the oil and gas industry. To gain the most accurate comprehensive picture of underground conditions, operators are using downhole fibre optic sensors to accurately measure pressure and temperature in real time along the length of the wellbore. A wealth of useful information about well condition and operation can be determined from the sensor data to help fine tune and maximize well production. The collection and analysis of fibre optic sensor data greatly reduces uncertainty, enabling better operational decisions that can increase well production and significantly reduce environmental impact.

Growing Danger of Cyber-Attacks Challenges Oil and Gas Industry

Growing Danger of Cyber-Attacks Challenges Oil and Gas Industry

Robbing a bank used to be easy. The bandit need only conceal his identify by donning a ski mask or other disguise before bursting into the bank, taking a hapless teller by surprise, and then intimidating her into handing over the loot. Hidden cameras and alarms were a hindrance, but only if the robber, or his gang of thieves, weren’t quick enough to get out of the bank before the cops arrived – screeching tires and all. At least, that’s how it always happened in the movies.
