American Innovation's Bullhorn Wireless Remote Monitoring System monitors rectifiers and Cathodic Protection (CP) systems, compressors, storage tanks, oil and gas, water and wastewater and agricultural industry assets such as gas meters, lift stations, water samplers, irrigation systems, poultry farm equipment, generators and more.
Benefits of the Bullhorn system include:
The Bullhorn wireless monitoring system has a number of different devices capable of remote monitoring for scheduled and by exception in-bound reporting, as well as two-way communication for on-demand reads and activating/deactivating equipment. The units offer the ability to capture and send information from remote equipment easily and provide 100% coverage via digital cellular (GSM), LEOS satellite (ORBCOMM), and GEOS satellite (Inmarsat D+) communication systems.
Automatic Meter Reading
Unit reports utility meter readings daily with up to 6 digits of meter resolution. During installation, unit is set to match the meter’s reading to allow for occasional verification of accuracy. It can be configured to store the reading at a particular time that may be different from the reporting time to ensure that meter readings from multiple meters are comparative. Model types include:
Standard APM4AM models have a total of 6 inputs. Channels 1-4 can be configured as analog (±5 VDC, ±50 mVDC or 4-20 mA) or active digital. Channels 5 and 6 can be configured as digital, active digital, accumulator or accumulator reset depending on the model selected. Digital signal options are described below. Enclosure options include an anodized aluminum (can) and/or plastic box, depending on the model type. Model types include:
Serial Data Terminal units interrogate modbus-compatible instruments via an RS232 connection and reports register readings based on a configurable, transmission interval. It reports up to sixteen 6-digit register readings, eight 12-digit register readings, or a combination of both from ASCII or RTU Modbus equipment. Model types include:
