Bottom line. To decrease false alarms and unreliable notification of compressor downtimes, J-W Operating (JW) installed magnetically-attached, vibration sensor, satellite-based alarm systems on more than two dozen compressors in their field operations, starting in 1999. Several have been on location more than two years without a single problem, and J-W has not had to replace the first set of batteries. J-W has installed an additional 12 units on compressors that they monitor for others. Eliminating just a few hours of downtime pays for the low-cost ($1,600 installation, plus $30 to $40/month for air time) service. Due to utilizing the geo-synchronous satellites, there are no blind spots; the system is always up.
