SonSet Solutions currently has over 175 remote water monitor units operating around the world in five unique configurations. For information about other options, please write to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cabling: Most configurations use two-wire, waterproof connectors for connecting each sensor to the monitor box. Typical cable lengths of 100 ft. allow for placement of the monitor on top of structures for better security and unobstructed view of the Globalstar satellites.
Power: Our systems use standard AA batteries which are readily available in most countries, and most are field replaceable. Battery life is typically 10 years, but will depend on the specific configuration, such as the number of satellite transmissions per day, number of data samples per day, type of inputs, etc.
Ease of Installation: The universal remote water monitor uses a simple two-wire, waterproof connector for attaching each sensor to the monitor. Most two-wire cables can be used to run between the sensors and the monitor box. Flow meters with the appropriate cabling can also be purchased with the monitor for ease of installation.
Transmission Frequency: The universal remote water monitor can be programmed to transmit its data as often as needed, depending on the amount of data being stored. Fewer transmissions per day typically reduces the transmission cost. Configuration no. 3 has a switch which allows the user to select either daily transmissions or transmissions every three days.
Sunlight Detection Day Cycle: This unique software package actually detects the hours of sunlight locally (the “day cycle”). It then transmits data eight times over this approximately 12-hour period of daylight. Data recorded outside of the day cycle hours is not lost; it is included in the first transmission of the following day cycle.
Web-based Monitoring: The universal remote water monitor can be programmed to send its data directly to your web interface or you can view the data on our graphical web interface.
