Remote Alarms

MeterStar™ provides a complete turnkey portal to your natural gas measurement solution.

The secure server provides morning reports organized by run so that your field personnel can easily identify production problems and organize their daily work efficiently. Detailed information about each measurement point is available, complete with graphs to quickly show flow trends.

You have the flexibility of setting alarm points for any of the flowing conditions and being notified via e-mail, pager, or via the telephone if an alarm occurs. For users who already have an existing reporting system, MeterStar provides an electronic message from our servers to yours so the information can be integrated with your system.

::New for 2005::
MeterStar now supports a wide range of devices using native communication protocols to support a wide selection of Electronic Gas Measurement (EGM) meters.

• ABB TotalFlow (both Modbus and TotalFlow ASCII)
• Bristol Babcock 33xx and ControlWave (BSAP Protocol)
• Control MicroSystems RealFlow based 4202 GFC (Modbus)
• Dynamic Fluid Measurement EChart (Modbus)
• Fisher Rosemont / Emerson 103,407,503 (ROC Protocol)
• FlowStar DCR-900 Turbine meters (Modbus)
• Generic Enron Modbus devices

The five I/O ports on the MeterStar board can be configured for individually selected Analog or Digital Input, or digital output. When configured as analog input a 10 bit A/D is utilized over a configurable 0 to 5 VDC, 1 to 5 VDC, or 4 to 20mA range. Each input can be configured for alarms supporting a Low Low, Low, High, or High High setpoint. In addition to reporting upon alarm, a current status is sent each day.

Our advanced notification methods include e-mail sent to any user configurable e-mail address or via a selection of SMS (Short Message Services) gateways to most cell phones world wide that support text messaging.

Typical applications include:
• Compressor Monitoring (run / stopped, suction, discharge, temp, etc.)
• Process Monitors such as tank levels, chemical injection, etc.
• Environmental Sensors and Alarms through RemoteIO (H2S levels, Tsunami warning and pressure sensors)
• Remotely monitor any sensor that provides a standard compatible output

With new features and new devices supported, we are confident that Meter Star (tm) is the best satellite solution on the market today. Our customers are a testimony to that, we thank all of our customers and will continue to give them the best support in today’s growing market.
