eLynx announces GPS-enabled alarm for oil and gas

Enhanced ‘i4D’ device adds location information to alarm data for mobile asset monitoring.

Tulsa-based eLynx Technologies has announced a GPS-enabled alarming device for oil and gas. The device is an enhanced version of eLynx’ i4D, a four-input discrete alarm that uses the Iridium global satellite network to communicate from remote locations without cell phone coverage.

The i4d provides run time metrics for oilfield equipment such as compressors and generators. The GPS-enabled version adds real-time location information for mobile assets. Logs and location data are sent to eLynx’ data center and can be viewed in the SCADALynx mapping package. Notifications can also be sent to operators via text, email or voice callout. The device calls home once a week to say it is still alive and communicates battery level information with each data transmission.
