New technology enables versatile, scalable measurement networks

Scanner 3100 and 2100 flow computers help improve operators' connectivity to the digital oilfield.

Today's intelligent oilfield utilizes sensors, data collection devices, and analysis software to provide operational knowledge so that operating companies can mitigate risk, optimize production and correctly determine the financial position associated with the fluid movement.

Cameron has introduced new technology for cost-saving, smart electronic field-monitoring. With the simple addition of a tiny SmartMesh radio to our CAMERON Scanner 3000 and 2000 series flow computers, operators can save 50% or more on setup costs without sacrificing measurement integrity. 

Our CAMERON Scanner flow computers measure standard volume, mass, and energy of saturated steam and gases together with the standard volume and mass of liquids. As a small example, they are diversely suited to measure gas, oil, and water flow from two-phase or three-phase separators or compute the custody transfer flow from an ultrasonic gas flow meter.  As applicable they are compliant to ISO, API, AGA, and ASME and many other standards.

In addition to flow measurement the Scanner monitors, records and reports non-flow related operational conditions like level, pressure, temperature and other items.

Within a multi-measurement facility efficient and savings are gained by linking all the measurements locally by self-powered wireless or wired communications to create a local area network enabling any measurement to be associated to a calculation, record, alarm, or local display. All findings and results are then available monitored at a single device within the network by a web browser interface.

 

Scanner 3100 Flow Computer 

The Scanner 3100 is Cameron’s most advanced flow computer and offers the cost savings of a distributed flow computing network as well as excellence in centralized computing. Major advantages include:

  • Two integral flow runs and the ability to coalesce up to 20 remote flow runs in a local area network
  • Automated integration of remote Scanner measurement point
  • Wireless and/or  wired communication options
  • Fault tolerant wireless system moves computed results
  • Ability to collect and share up to 128 data points from any brand of Modbus compliant automation device

 

Scanner 2100 Flow Computer

The Scanner 2100 offers short-haul wireless communication in addition to traditional wired operation, and complements Cameron’s existing portfolio of flow computers. Major advantages include:

  • Easy, automatic integration with Scanner 3100 acting as a network hub
  • Integral batteries for power autonomy and true wireless operation
  • Simultaneous service as flow computer and turbine totalizer


eFCAS 

eFCAS is an integrated software system that automates the collection of data. Through automated assessment and analysis, eFCAS converts the data into operational knowledge so that issues are made obvious to the user.
