Bestech now distributing structural health monitoring systems for oil and gas

Wireless temperature
and strain SAW sensors consuming ultra-low battery and fully autonomous to use
for up to seven years are ideal for remote applications.

Bestech Australia is
the exclusive distributor of the BeanAir wireless sensor network (WSN) designed
to enable real-time monitoring of machine performance and environment.

The new R&D
project developed an integrated system that allows BeanGateway (data collecting
via Ethernet or Modbus) or BeanDevice (wireless sensors including
accelerometer, inclinometer, temperature, humidity and light sensors etc.) to operate
without the internal battery. The new ATEX/EX Zone 2 enclosure designed with a
specific antenna coupler makes BeanAir WSN suitable for ATEX sites.

Wireless sensor
networks used on oil and gas platforms focus on monitoring the production
process, to either prevent or detect equipment health and safety issues or to
optimise and increase production. Applications where wireless sensors can be
used include remote pipelines, corrosion detection, equipment condition monitoring
and real-time reservoir status among many more.

Key features of wireless
and passive SAW sensors include temperature and strain measurement capability;
ability to function without batteries; robust and stable construction
compatible with harsh environments; and maintenance-free design with no need for
recalibration.

The ultra low power Wi-Fi
sensors offer lower total cost of ownership by working with the existing access
system. The Wi-Fi sensors use IP-over-Ethernet networking environment for easy provisioning.
Features also include IEEE 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi low power technology; and
compatibility with WEP/WPA/WPA2/WPS.

The self-powered system
harvests solar energy and uses an integrated primary cell for UPS functionality.
The system also has a reliable alloy aluminium enclosure; IP66 rating; and ATEX
II 2 GD EEx d IIB Ex tD A21 certification.
