SignalFire, a telemetry equipment manufacturer for the oil and gas market, has shipped their 20,000th unit while maintaining a low rate of field-failure
April 4, 2016– SignalFire Telemetry has shipped its 20,000th wireless node. The company reached the milestone this week by shipping a Sentinel unit to one of its distributors. SignalFire’s CTO, Scott Keller, commented, “Shipping 20,000 systems is a good milestone, but we are especially proud of our record of reliable performance. We have maintained an extremely low field-failure rate from all causes—less than 0.15%—including warranty and non-warranty. Reliability is our number-one design driver for our equipment.” This reliability rate translates into roughly 50,000 node-years of operation with almost no interruptions.
SignalFire manufactures wireless telemetry equipment used in oil and gas fields throughout the U.S. and Canada. Customers use its products to connect sensors to the Internet via wireless communication links in remote monitoring and control applications. Examples include tank level, tubing and casing pressure, pipeline monitoring, and chemical injection control as well as remote shutdown applications.
Rated to Class 1 Division 1 and 2 hazardous location standards, the SignalFire product line helps take advantage of the widely varying monitoring and control environments found in the modern-day oil field.
