Telemetry Dataloggers are capable of using either an internal modem for use with standard telephone lines or a cellular network module
Telemetry Dataloggers are capable of using either an internal modem for use with standard telephone lines or a cellular network module. Construction and containment of battery and modem/cellular module within the logger casing give reliability and a design life in excess of 25 years. The cellular logger offers a viable alternative to installing a telephone line in a remote meter pit, as well as providing a totally portable telemetry unit.
Data Transfer to office PC is via an internal or desktop modem into RADLOG for Windows software, regardless of data source. Monitoring is carried out on two levels; daily routine data acquisition for reporting and planning tasks, and alarm mode where an acceptable data profile stored in the logger is breached and an instant alert issued.
Loggers can either be programmed locally using a keypad or remotely via the telemetry link. The main water industry applications include zonal and district meter (DMA) logging, critical pressure monitoring, large customer monitoring, in-line distribution water quality monitoring, and general leakage control work.
