Cameron introduces new wireless flow computers

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Cameron (NYSE: CAM) has launched its Scanner 3100 and 2100 model wireless, API-compliant flow computers.

The Cameron Scanner 3100 can be either a stand-alone two-stream flow computer or a network manager, capable of coalescing data from up to 22 flow streams.

The Scanner 2100 model 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 power autonomy with a built-in lithium battery that can act as either primary or back-up power. Both models can be accessed and configured on a Web-based interface from any tablet, smart phone, or computer.

Cameron says a significant part of this launch is the introduction of its distributed network concept for total network solutions in flow measurement and process control. While the installation cost savings of wireless technology are generally understood, Cameron says the benefits of its solution extend beyond installation costs by providing increased operation and maintenance efficiencies and enhanced data integrity through wired or wireless communications.
