Cameron has launched its Scanner® 3100 and 2100 model flow computers – introducing wireless, API-compliant flow computing for the oil and gas industry.
A significant part of this launch is the introduction of Cameron’s distributed network concept for total network solutions in flow measurement and process control. While the installation cost savings of wireless technology are generally understood, the benefits of Cameron’s solution extend beyond installation costs by providing increased operation and maintenance efficiencies and enhanced data integrity through wired or wireless communications.
The Cameron Scanner 3100 model operates as a stand-alone two stream flow computer or as a network manager, capable of coalescing data from up to 22 flow streams. It can function as either a stand-alone flow computer or as a short-haul wireless node in a distributed Scanner network, complementing the existing Scanner 2000 series computers. Both units offer unique power autonomy with a built-in lithium battery that can act as a primary or back-up power supply. Both models can also be accessed and configured from a web-based interface, accessible from any tablet, smart phone, or computer.
