Most pump shutdowns are annunciated only by a single light or alarm relay, with the lease operator left to deduce the cause. Smart ESD is a low cost device that simplifies this task, while adding the ability to easily connect to an operators Scada system, or to host an actionable webpage. Now, the lease operator can look at his phone to see if the shutdown cause was: vibration switch, low or high flowline pressure, high tank or enviropot level, or if the pumping unit is down due to timer or rod pump controller commands.
Although the base version provides for incorporation of the following shutdown events, an enhanced version will annunciate phase failures, motor overloads, production facility ESD's, or when local On-Off or HOA switches have been operated.
Smart ESD with Vibration Detection uses a Metrix transducer to trend rotating equipment vibration, shutting down when problems arise. Smart ESD with Frac Hit Early Warning ESD's when atypical fluid entry due to offset frac hits occurs, and collects realtime tubing and casing pressure data.
