Vision

Vision Device Management is a free PC-based tool used with Link™ to configure, test, and troubleshoot ETC controls, sensors, and wireless products, and download & install firmware updates. When used in conjunction with the Sasquatch Plunger Velocity Sensor, Vision and Link become the industry’s first Plunger Velocity Diagnostic Kit. This kit helps operators understand how the impact (kinetic energy) of a plunger at surface affects surface equipment.

Vision also includes ETC’s full resource library; including application notes, certification documents, manuals, and other supporting documents and tools for our products.

With Vision Device Management, the latest firmware for ETC controls and sensors is always at your fingertips. To ensure producers have access to the most modern features & the best optimization algorithms, ETC occasionally releases new firmware versions for controllers like the ALiEn² plunger lift controller and the PC180 Chemical Injection controller. Vision also allows users to safely ‘see what Cyclops or Sasquatch sees’ as a plunger arrives in the lubricator, which can help users determine the cause of false detects or missed arrivals on a problem well.

Upgrading software on any ETC product is simple and quick with Vision. As new versions are released, the latest software is automatically downloaded right to your PC when the utility opens.

Case Studies

Major producer in South Texas uses ALiEn2 to achieve 16,000% ROI

The ALiEn2 plunger controller replaced a competitive controller on a plunger lift well that was not meeting production expectations. Production was doubled within 12 days and the well has continued producing at the higher rate since.
