Hiber Expands Data-Gathering Capabilities of Its Remote Well-Monitoring Solution.
New ATEX-certified wired-to-wireless (W2W) options enable HiberHilo satellite IoT connection to a variety of field sensors to measure flow, VSD, methane detection, and more.
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands — July 26, 2022: Hiber, the IoT-as-a-Service provider, has added new capabilities to its HiberHilo satellite-powered remote well-monitoring solution for the oil and gas sector, enabling connection over LoRaWAN to a wide range of specialised in-field sensors. By integrating ATEX-certified, wired-to-wireless (W2W) connectivity into the HiberHilo sensor portfolio, Hiber now provides over-the-air access to a broad array of in-field data parameters and metrics, equipping oil and gas operators with new ways to monitor and optimise production.
The latest HiberHilo sensors, equipped with W2W hardware, can convert the analogue signal from any wired sensor (4-20mA or 0-5V output) into a LoRaWAN signal. This significantly expands the range of operating parameters that can now be monitored remotely, adding flow, methane detection, variable speed drive (VSD) readings, torque, voltage (for example, to ensure cathodic protection is intact), and more. The new HiberHilo W2W hardware can be connected to any existing or new sensor installed in the field, negating the need to purchase additional devices.
- Converts any sensor analogue output with 4-20 mA or 0-5 V into a LoRaWAN signal.
- Battery-powered, lasts up to 8 years.
- ATEX Zone 1 certified and IP68 certified
- Average installation time is ~30 minutes
