Radio Telemetry System

Radio Telemetry & Licenced Radio Systems

We are the UKs Leading Design House for Licenced Radio Telemetry Systems. We have Links in Service with 7 of the 9 Leading Water & Wastewater Utilities, the Environment Agency , Natural Resources Wales, the NHS and Heavy Industry.

Licenced vs Licence Free

Simply you get what you pay for. Currently over 99% of the links we deploy that operate beyond a distance of 200m (600ft), with some up to 25km. Many are used for mission critical applications such as controlling flood sluice gates, warning  about sewer blockages, the operation of CSO Overflows, controlling pumps, delivering river levels to the EA and Industry and much more.

Our low operating frequencies also deliver other advantages with regard to energy consumption. Our transmissions although using a 32-bit address IP address typically require only approximately 1/1000 of the energy of a cellular or Wi-Fi to cover a much greater distance. Not only this permit us to operate the majority of our devices from batteries, but to also enables us to power sensors, simplifies intrinsic safety compliance and still find enough energy to broadcast automated health messages from every device. So unlike cellular where virtual constant monitoring is virtually impossible due to cost and power, we are able to offer 24/7 status monitoring both the heartbeats signals and their strength ensuring our equipment is working, delivering data and is ready for action.

Automatic Self Testing:

All of our systems offer automated self testing and diagnostics as standard. Aside from collecting data all of our systems monitor the presence of each device and have the capability of reporting a loss or failure via relays, status indicators or via our software platforms.

Our PC and Data Concentrator solutions go one stage further. Not only do they monitor for signal loss but that also dynamically measure the strength of the signals received and between messages monitor and report the background noise levels.

Parallel Dual Delivery & Redundancy:

Our systems can be setup with multiple receiver locations whereby the same data is processed and displayed locally and/or used for control. This facility can be used to build in redundancy and to enhance coverage, effectively creating your own grid of data collection points or data concentrators.

Battery Operation:

Our systems have been designed to support both mains and battery operation. Key to our battery efficiency is our lean data protocols and the ability to control the application of power to sensors.

Achieving Extended Coverage:

We have a range of repeaters and/or high power PMR transmitters that can be deployed to extend our networks to cover either larger areas or to pass signals around obstructions such as hills or mountains.

Our repeaters include a smart store and forward facility that permits them to be daisy chained without repeatedly repeating the last message received.  Repeaters can be either solar, battery or preferably mains powered.

With transmit powers up to 25W we feel that nothing is too great at challenge.
