The Bullhorn RM2020 and APM4AM wireless remote monitoring units monitor a variety of assets in oil & gas and water industries by utilizing reliable satellite or digital cellular networks to communicate measurement results related to storage tanks. Both monitor water and oil & gas storage tanks levels (high and low), pump failure, loss of power and facility security.
The RM2020 utilizes the low-cost Orbcomm satellite network, while the APM4AM employs the low-latency Inmarsat geostationary satellite network or a digital cellular network to communicate. Both feature six input channels: 4 analog (1-4), 2 digital (5-6). Channel 5 can be digital or accumulator, and channel 6 accumulator or accumulator reset.
Both communicate data to the Bullhorn web interface Bullhorn Asset Tracker (BAT™). BAT provides for immediate, in-depth visibility of unit status and alarms and provides a proven backend system to collect, store and generate reports on equipment data.
For example, many oil and gas companies utilize a sump pump in order to pump leakage crude oil at a tank battery site. The pump fills the tank with oil, and when a pre-determined level is reached (i.e. x number of barrels), the Bullhorn unit sends a notification via phone, text and/or email to a technician via BAT so the oil can be removed and returned to the main line.
Bullhorn can be used to extend established SCADA systems. The RM2020 and APM4AM units can enhance SCADA functionality by monitoring equipment in regions not yet integrated into a full system and communicating data from BAT into pre-existing software. In addition, Bullhorn can often meets the needs of smaller and mid-size companies and utilities who don't have the capital to invest in a large-scale SCADA system but need critical equipment data.
