  • Dual Telemetry with GOES

    Make GOES more effective and reliable with a secondary telemetry option. GOES, for all it’s no-cost, reliable virtues, has some drawbacks. First, it’s a one-way transmission—there’s no way of sending any data to your station. This means there’s no way to reprogram a data logger or reboot a stuck data logger or purge a bubbler without (an unplanned) visit to the site. ...

  • Overcoming Common Data Communication Problems

    Data communication is an increasingly integrated part of many data collection systems. Getting data from one place to another is not trivial. Many communication system design and engineering variables for telemetry need to be addressed. Stevens Water has been specializing in telemetry systems for data transfer since the invention of the Stevens Telemark in 1937, which allowed users to ...

  • What’s New with LinkComm Software?

  • An Overview of Stevens' Approach to Making Remote Communications Simpler, More Flexible and Incredibly Reliable

    The power of the cloud’s simplicity, flexibility and reliability are the attributes at the heart of Measurements to Mind—Stevens’ M2M cloud-based data acquisition vision of shortening the communication path from the sensors to data on-line. What the sensor measures, the mind sees. Products that fly under the M2M ...

  • How to Add a Secondary Telemetry to Your GOES Station

    GOES, for all it’s no-cost, reliable virtues, has some drawbacks. First, it’s a one-way transmission—there’s no way of sending any data to your station. This means there’s no way to reprogram a data logger or reboot a stuck data logger or purge a bubbler without (an unplanned) visit to the site. The Stevens SatCom GOES transmitter provides built in capability of ...

  • Basics of satellite antenna positioning for environmental monitoring

    Users of geostationary satellite based telemetry systems have one unique challenge that other types of telemetry users do not – that is, calculating the angles needed to point their transmitting antennas to orbiting satellite. The process is actually fairly straightforward, although there are some common pitfalls that can be avoided with a little pre-planning. First, we need to look at how the ...

  • The Growing Need for Two-Way, Redundant Communication

    Whether the data being collected by your agency is for predictive purposes or to analyze changes in streamflow due to human activities or global warming, there’s a growing reliance on real-time data acquisition at the academic, industrial, and municipal levels. To ensure your organization can operate in an efficient and cost-effective manner, it’s important to be aware of the ...
