Cases

Galileosky trackers are used in the oil and gas field

Yakutiya

Compass Telecom, the Russian integrator company, has installed Galileosky devices on mining equipment in the oilfield. The customer controls equipment performance and fuel consumption several thousand kilometers away from the headquarters.

Project background

Gas pumping equipment is located in Yakutia, where there is no cellular connection. There are only two ways to transfer data from tracking devices:

  1. through a chain of units in an area where GSM signal is more or less stable
  2. via a stationary satellite router

The company installed devices with cellular communication support only, with no without additional functionality. This did not solve the problem: trackers did not transmit data for a long time, therefore the equipment remained uncontrolled for 1-2 months.

After the GSM station had been mounted, the voice connection worked stably, but Internet didn’t. As a result, it was decided to purchase Galileosky Wi-Fi Hub special equipment.

Challenges

  • Control the equipment location where there is no GSM
  • Transfer data from devices via hubs directly to the server
  • Monitor fuel, prevent drains

Solution

Compass Telecom specialists installed 50 Galileosky devices: there are only ten hubs for forty translators.

Hubs did not have time to upload data to the server via GSM, so experts installed a Wi-Fi router from the amplified antenna. After that, they reconfigured objects in the GSM coverage area so they could be able to work with it.

As a result, the equipment that works and periodically arrives at the base unloads data through the router. Additionally, the rest of the devices transmit data to the hubs. Hubs, upon arrival at the base, also upload data to the server via a router. If the hub catches a GSM signal along the way, it unloads everything via cellular communication as soon as possible.

Devices

Galileosky 7x Wi-Fi Hub

GPS tracking device for data collection and transmission in areas with weak GSM signal or no coverage at all

Results

With the help of this solution, the company has set equipment performance control and fuel consumption monitoring several thousand kilometers away from the headquarters.

The system is in touch for 24 hours a day and there is the guarantee than information is relevant and highly objective.  You can use same solutions in your projects.

You can use same solutions in your projects. The potential of the devices is great, they are used anywhere on Earth. Water transport, sports cars, seismic all-terrain vehicles and even weather stations are controlled by Galileosky devices.
