Flood warning systems built into hydrological stations are used to notify local emergency authorities in the case of a flood event. OTT water level sensors and continuous flow sensors, paired with telemetry technology and OTT Hydrosystems are able to measure, collect, and transmit water level and velocity data in real-time to determine the peak level or flow during flood events, and alert local water and emergency authorities if a certain threshold is breached.
Measuring groundwater level or depth-to-water is critically important for identifying long term trends, including declining water levels, saltwater intrusion, seasonal variations, aquifer recharge, artificial aquifer storage and recovery, and level status for drinking water. Receiving groundwater data via remote data transmission from one of the many OTT telemetry options available saves time and resources spent in the field.
Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-Bird Scientific offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications. Sea-Bird Scientific water quality...
Urban Hydrology deals with the specific aspects of the hydrological cycle in urban and industrial settings. This includes all natural water flows as well as the consideration of precipitation, storm water, groundwater, rivers, and lakes, but also the infrastructure and systems for water supply and sanitation in a city.
Measuring water quantity and quality in surface water (open channels, rivers, reservoirs, lakes, and estuaries) is one of the foundations of hydrological monitoring and has been a focus of OTT Hydromet since its first water current meters were designed in 1875.
Continuous monitoring of nutrient levels provides crucial information about daily, seasonal and event based changes in water quality conditions, and can be a strong indicator on the overall health of the water body. In recent years, monitoring of nutrients has grown in importance as it has come to the forefront in regulatory compliance of water quality in many regions.
Sustainability is a often-used word. But building environmental monitoring networks is complicated and expensive. When planning, therefore, it is important to consider the sustainability - means service life of the entire system. And since this typically should be more than 10 years, the system must allow permanent modernization and improvements.
Smart homes need a professional weather sensor that controls watering, closes the windows when it rains and optimizes the energy requirement (heating / cooling), depending on the external conditions. The better the weather information the megacities collect, the better the traffic management. The WS700 collects all measurement data for optimal weather-dependent building control. Rain / snow differentiation and maintenance- free intensity measurement of all types of precipitation. As an option, lightning...
Climate change makes for more extreme weather. The main reasons for this are wind and precipitation.That is why an increasing number of meteorological and hydrological monitoring networks are coming together. Global coverage with hydro-meteorological measuring technology is varied. Very old and very modern (new) measuring networks are used for climate monitoring worldwide. And there are still large gaps, for example on the oceans.
Airport Weather Sensors and Components for Airport Weather Observation Systems (AWOS) and Runway Ice Detection Systems (IDS): Ceilometer, Cloud Height, Cloud Cover, Visibility and Runway Condition Sensors. Airports around the world use Lufft technology because it’s flexible, comes with open protocols and easy to integrate into existing solutions. Moreover Lufft’s sensors are reliable under any weather conditions and maintenance-free.
Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous.
Ambient condition changes can happen anywhere in production lines 24/7. Are you the first to know about it? Whether you’re in pharmaceuticals, banking, manufacturing or other technology, where monitoring of ambient conditions like temperature, humidity or air pressure count - Business doesn’t stop. We offer a wide range of product to detect every change in ambient conditions - to have your threshold values always under control!
