SignalFire Wireless Telemetry (Hudson, MA) has introduced the Pressure Scout, a wireless pressure sensor that supports pressure monitoring and alarm reporting as part of the SignalFire Remote Sensing System. The first in a line of wireless integrated sensors, the Pressure Scout consists of a pressure sensor (integrated with a wireless node) and internal battery. Ideal applications for the device include well tubing and casing pressure monitoring, tank level monitoring, and compressor station status monitoring.

The Pressure Scout provides up to a ½-mile transmission to the Signal Fire Gateway, where pressure data becomes available via a Modbus RTU or TCP interface. Sold in standard pressure ranges, the Pressure Scout performs five-second pressure sampling with configurable alarm reporting. Units offer local push-button zeroing. The technology operates in temperature ranges from -40 °C (104 °F) to 80 °C (176 °F). The Pressure Scout utilizes an internal battery that powers the integrated pressure sensor and radio for up to 10 years.
