Plant managers are continuous on the lookout for ways to improve the productivity and efficiency of plant processes. There is a growing need for solutions that simplify the collection of data from equipment. Yokogawa realized this demand in the process industry. Hence in 2019, the Sushi Sensor – a compact, wireless sensor for measuring vibration and temperature – was launched. This smart sensor is also optimized for Industrial IoT applications (IIoT). But what makes the Sushi Sensor special? For which assets are they applicable to and how does it realize preventive maintenance? In this blog, we’re going to answer 7 frequently asked questions about the Sushi Sensor.
Understanding the operational status of tank hatches and pump jacks at any given time is essential to maintain oil field productivity and regulatory compliance. SignalFire introduces a new multi-purpose wireless inclinometer that can monitor the status of tank hatch position or pump jack motion as part of a SignalFire Remote Sensing System. The patent-pending Tilt SCOUT uses a three-axis sensor that continually monitors angle to detect the orientation of a tank hatch or the motion of a pump jack. With feedback from the wireless sensor, workers can determine if a tank hatch is ajar and/or a pump jack is idle, and can take immediate corrective action to ensure proper and compliant operations.
