Ralston Instruments Introduces Long-term Pressure Logging Solution

Oct 06 2017 Comments 0

The FieldLab Weatherproof Outdoor Enclosure replaces paper based pressure chart recorders with a digital solution. Instead of changing charts every week or month these can log for 3 months at a time or longer before data needs to be collected. Users can download data less frequently and have it all stored reliably onboard the FieldLab in a weatherproof enclosure. The frequency of datalogging can be selected using the FieldLab Desktop software then the FieldLab is deployed into the field to collect data until it is collected.

This is an excellent solution for remote locations where setting up a SCADA, satellite or cell based network is either impractical or not cost effective. Especially in areas such as wellheads or gas gathering lines in oil and gas applications where monitoring is needed and access is limited.

This can be quickly deployed for monitoring events such as low water pressure in water distribution, hydrostatic testing or anywhere where pressure needs to be monitored for anywhere from a day to a few months to determine the cause of some problem.

The FieldLab comes in ranges from 5 to 10,000 psi and has a datalogging capability of 2 million data points. The weatherproof enclosure is NEMA 4X and the solar panel and pole mount option allows the unit to be installed permanently.
