Wireless data collector enables remote monitoring of instrumentation over GPRS
31 May 2012
Mantracourt has introduced the T24-RDC wireless remote data collector, a remote data acquisition system that can utilise the existing GPRS network, enabling the remote monitoring of sensors and instrumentation. Using a Quad band GPRS modem, the wireless data collector allows users to log and report data to multiple destinations, including servers, email addresses and mobile phones via text messaging.
The T24-RDC accepts data from multiple inputs including: mV/V strain measurement, 4-20mA, 0-10V, temperature, pulse and potentiometer. All data is time and date stamped and sent to destinations at regular intervals. Measurements are also compared with user-defined limits that can trigger alert messages, allowing real time monitoring of an entire system.
According to Mantracourt's Kelly Voysey, a number of working systems were trialled in the field during the product development. One example was used to monitor the performance of the loads exerted on hydraulic struts shoring up construction pits, with the data being collated on a website for viewing. The T24-RDC has also been used to help monitor vibration levels during a construction project, enabling the sending of text messages to the phones of key personnel when vibration levels rose above set limits.
The T24 wireless telemetry range is a flexible low power radio system designed to enable the transmission of high accuracy measurement data from load cells, inclinometers, accelerometers, temperature, displacement and pressure sensors.
