Wireless Data Collector Enables Remote Monitoring of Instrumentation over GPRS



Mantracourt has announced the release of the T24-RDC Wireless Remote Data Collector. Expanding on their T24 range of wireless instrumentation, the T24-RDC is a remote data acquisition system that has been developed to 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, allowing for worldwide access to data for recording and monitoring.


“The T24-RDC is a well thought out and very intelligent piece of equipment,” said Kelly Voysey, Sales and Marketing Manager at Mantracourt. “Its design has been driven by certain key customers that had very demanding requirements. The result is a powerful and robust unit that will enable engineers to reliably monitor instrumentation remotely, and in considerable detail.”


The remote data logging system can accept data from multiple inputs including: mV/V strain measurement, 4-20 mA, 0-10 V, temperature, pulse and potentiometer. All data is time and date stamped and sent to destinations at regular intervals. Measurements are also compared to user-defined limits that can trigger alert messages allowing real time monitoring of an entire system.


“During its development, we have had a number of working systems out in the field,” said Kelly. “For example, they have been used to monitor the performance of the loads exerted on hydraulic struts used in shoring 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 were above set limits.”


UK based Mantracourt is a leading manufacturer of industrial measurement technologies and a world leader in the design and manufacture of electronics for measurement technologies, including strain gauge, temperature, resistance, pressure, voltage, current, potentiometer, rate, flow, LVDT and displacement in either analogue, digital or wireless form.


The Mantracourt 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. With a combination of transmitter and receiver technologies, engineers are able to remotely monitor instrumentation readings.
