Houston, Tex., USA (September 26, 2019) – Aegex Technologies plans to exhibit its intrinsically safe, wireless NexVu IoT Solution and aegex10 Intrinsically Safe Tablet with Tampnet in Stand 102 during OilComm 2019, October 2-3, in Houston.
Tampnet, which operates the largest offshore high-capacity network in the world, enables Aegex NexVu sensors and tablets with narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) connectivity, even in the remotest of offshore locations. NB-IoT networks consume minimal power, are cost-effective, provide wide global reach, and connect sensors directly to base stations rather than relying on gateways.
“Aegex is excited to demonstrate to oil and gas industry customers the value of providing all personnel with the ability to communicate and share information in real time, wherever they are. Tampnet connects our certified hardware with reliable, low-cost networking, enabling even remote operations to be connected,” said Aegex CEO Thomas P. Ventulett.
Aegex’s NexVu IoT Solution is an intrinsically safe modular sensing array that collects ambient data in critical operations, such as offshore oil and gas. More than 40 sensor nodes can be mixed and matched in some 60,000 permutations to monitor conditions of choice, including gases, temperature, pressure, vibration, etc., which, together, could amount to significant events in combustible hazardous areas. Monitoring those contextual factors can give organizations better insight into process safety and asset integrity and help plan for predictive maintenance efforts to improve efficiency and productivity. Battery-powered and highly mobile, NexVu is a versatile means of better understanding conditions surrounding offshore oil and gas or other hazardous area operations.
Via Tampnet’s narrowband network, NexVu sensor data about offshore operations can be shared in near real time with onshore management as well as among offshore personnel via aegex10 Intrinsically Safe Tablets. Aegex10 tablets are enterprise Windows tablets certified for ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 and Class I, II, III Division 1 hazardous locations. Purpose-built for hazardous environments, they enable data management and communications for personnel working in offshore oil and gas or other highly regulated industries.
Visit Stand 102 October 2-3 during OilComm 2019 to learn more about how Aegex intrinsically safe devices and Tampnet connectivity can improve safety and productivity in oil and gas operations.
