Implicit Monitoring Solutions Updates Intellisite

Implicit Monitoring Solutions (IMS) has upgraded Intellisite to include a new, user-friendly interface called Control Commander, which allows for commands to be sent via satellite connections to the Right Smart 1200 or Right Smart 2400 data acquisition and satellite communication devices. This Web-based enhancement allows users to manage their remote devices anytime, anywhere with no additional fees. These new control features allow users to manage more complicated production optimization solutions, such as sending commands (start, stop, change speed) to drives for pumping units. Control Commander also allows Plunger Lift parameters to be set and then communicated to the controller via satellite.

            Control Commander includes Web-based, easy-to-use templates, and once selected, these templates will automatically generate the appropriate commands. Here is a partial list of satellite-based Control Commander templates:

  • Pump Drive Controller Commands;
  • Immediate Data Commands;
  • Send Orifice Diameter Changes;
  • Set Plunger Lift Parameters;
  • Send Gas Composition Changes;
  • Send Pipe Diameter Changes;
  • Alarm Limits & Delays;
  • Get Back Records; and
  • General Purpose.

            Implicit’s services allow producers to improve the performance of wells, send out alarms to avert a costly shutdown, employ an efficient “manage by exception” approach, avoid the escalating investment in technology, and comply with standards.
