SignalFire Wireless Telemetry’s Tilt Scout for angle measurement is now approved for operation in hazardous environments. The latest member of the Scout family of Class 1, Division 1 integrated sensor nodes, the Tilt Scout combines a wireless inclinometer with a 900mHz radio and antenna and an internal battery pack within a NEMA4X enclosure. The three-axis sensor detects the change in angle (movement) of an asset such as tank hatch position as part of a SignalFire Wireless Telemetry System. Designed for use in outdoor industrial, it is also for monitoring pump jack motion.
SignalFire developed the Scout family to optimise battery life by integrating the sensor and radio together. Battery-powered, these Scout Sensor Nodes operate wirelessly and do not require cabling to external power sources.
Other members of the Scout family include the Pressure Scout that serves as a low-cost alternative to conduit, wired and other pressure sensor solutions and the Float Scout that offers a complete wireless tank level monitoring solution in oil fields.
