  • Guide to Saving Time with Intelligent Data Logging

    How to Simplify Data Analysis and Find Answers Quicker When trying to define intelligent data logging, it’s useful to compare it with traditional data logging. In the past, data loggers or recorders would typically be configured to sample a set number of channels at a fixed rate and store the recorded values in memory. The data could then be downloaded to a PC afterward and analyzed to ...

  • Calibration of a Capacitance Soil Sensor Required to Achieve the Level of Accuracy Required for Satellite Ground Truthing - Case study

    This study published in American Meteorological Society’s BAMS journal demonstrates the extent of variability in readings one can expect with a soil moisture sensor based on capacitance technology. To obtain the highest level of accuracy that is required for remote sensing ...

  • When Do I Need A Remote Level Transmitter?

    The word “remote” is used rather loosely in the world of industrial sensors. It can refer to anything that is removed by any distance from your sensor (such as a remote display), or anything that is located any distance from your control infrastructure. In this case, we’re talking specifically about a sensor that is removed from the control infrastructure. At what point do you ...

  • Extending Remote Network Connections with Radios

    Remote networks are very useful in monitoring remote tanks. These can be monitored on a nearby local network or over the Internet from virtually any location. How, then, can you get a network or Internet connection to a remote location? There are a variety of ways to get a network to a remote location. ...
