WIRELESS GAS DETECTION FOR GAS DRILLING OPS

RigGuard is a completely wireless and battery powered gas detection system that magentically mounts in any location on the drill rig to continuously monitor combustible and toxic gas levels during drilling operations.

It utilizes Strata’s secure, wireless communications network to stream data from the sensors to an operator’s PLC display in the doghouse. If harmful gas levels increase, the readings are displayed clearly on the sensors and early warning alerts are transmitted to the doghouse. 

The local on-rig network can also be remotely accessed over the Internet, utilizing either cellular or satellite services. This fully secure connection enables remote monitoring and centralized data collection across multiple rigs.
