Collecting data on zero power
Jekyll Electronic Technology
Jekyll Electronic Technology says its Pulsar Telelog is a major innovation for companies wishing to add alarm status telemetry at remote facilities
Operating without external power or batteries, this ruggedcompact unit combines a standalone data logger with line poweredmodem technology for easy maintenance and installation onexisting telecommunication infrastructures.
Checking the batterylife of a network of modems can be a logistical difficulty.Battery monitoring equipment at best give only a rough indicationof charge capacity so frequent visits have to be made.
Since thePulsar Telelog is powered directly by the telephone line, thereis no need to make these checks and with remote diagnostics alsoincorporated, telemetry costs are driven down further still.Applications are numerous.
As well as counting pulse electricity,water and gas meters, it can check mechanical switch status forwater level or tank contents level indicators, intruderdetection, flow failure detection, leak detection, and plantfailure monitors.
Once an alarm condition arises, the Telelogsends a message to a centralised terminal, mobile phone or pager.This system has met a positive response and Jekyll hopes manyindustries, from supermarkets monitoring daily energy consumptionto distribution companies checking cooling systems at remoteplants, will benefit.
The Infinite iLog Lan carries a built-in ethernet/Lan adaptor and can be directly hooked on to a local network, to transmit its data and alarms via FTP or socket application commands
The new Infinite iLog GSM stand-alone data acquisition system is now available from Jekyll Electronic Technology
Jekyll has now introduced the standard Electricity Industry Code of Practice 6 (CoP6) protocol onto its Pulsar Telelog remote metering logger, which is powered from the telephone line
The Lec data logger is capable of measuring up to 16,378 temperature readings over a -35 to 80°C range.
Grant Instruments has introduced its Yoyolog range of mini data loggers for measuring physical and electrical parameters.
