Solinst Telemetry Systems are designed for use with the Solinst Levelogger Series of dataloggers. They offer two-way communication and control from your own desktop. You choose the Levelogger, the best communication method to suit your site, access the intuitive software to create sampling and reporting schedules, then view and manage data on your Home Station computer in any way you choose.

STS Gold Systems can be set up using GSM or CDMA digital cellular wireless communications. They are powered by a sealed lead-acid 12V battery, with optional solar trickle charging or direct AC power. RRL Gold Radio Stations use six replaceable lithium batteries, and also have the option of a back-up power source.

STS Telemetry Systems are ideal for large networks. Hundreds of remote stations can report to a single Home Station computer. RRL Gold Radio Telemetry is ideal for small closed loop networks.

  • Time and cost savings
  • Reliable data transfer direct to your desktop
  • Manage the data yourself
  • Flexible options to suit site/application conditions
  • Low maintenance
  • Enhanced power management
  • Faster, easier access to data

In the past, telemetry systems were seen as complicated and too expensive to use. Now, as the benefits of telemetry are needed more and more, it is becoming a common tool.

Solinst has created a simplified system with standardized hardware, flexible communication options, and intuitive software that make the system easy to set-up, operate and manage the data.

Telemetry provides an economical and efficient method to access remote data instantly, saving time and costs by eliminating manual data collection, time spent traveling and costly data hosting.

Added features such as alarm notification, remote diagnostic reporting and firmware updating make it easy to maintain your system, while simplifying data collection. Now there is no reason not to use telemetry.

  • Water level, temperature and/or rainfall monitoring for:
  • Faster, easier access to data
  • Remote or difficult-to-access locations
  • Hazardous or critically important sites
  • Long-term applications
  • Drought and water taking management
  • Watershed management
  • Landfill supervision
  • Flood and stormwater management

STS software allows you to always be in control of your own data. Data retrieved from each Levelogger is placed in an Access database on the STS Home Station computer. New data is added to the existing database. The convenient STS Software can be used for a quick check of the latest readings. You can export your data as .lev or .csv files for use in your preferred database or modeling package. You can display formatted data on web pages by accessing the database directly with your own software. Data self-management provides flexible options, and ongoing cost savings, without being tied to a proprietary data hosting service.

Applications

Water level, temperature and/or rainfall monitoring for:

  • Remote or difficult-to-access locations
  • Hazardous or critically important sites
  • Long-term groundwater monitoring applications
  • Longer term pump tests
  • Drought and water taking management
  • Watershed management
  • Landfill and mine water supervision
  • Flood and stormwater management

Data Self-Management

STS/RRL Gold Software allows you to always be in control of your own data. Data retrieved from each Levelogger is placed in a Microsoft® Access® database on the Home Station computer. New data is added to the existing database. The Software can be used for a convenient quick check of the latest readings. You can export your data as .lev or .csv files for use in your preferred database or modeling package. You can display formatted data on web pages by accessing the database directly with your own software. Data self-management provides flexible options, and ongoing cost savings, without being tied to a proprietary data hosting service.

STS Gold NEMA 4X Enclosure

STS Gold Telemetry Systems come with standardized equipment configurations, including your choice of communication device to meet the needs of your application. The STS Remote Station consists of an STS Gold Controller, Distribution Box, Battery, and Modem with a connected Antenna, protected within a weatherproof Nema 4X case.

The STS Distribution Box allows the connection of up to 4 data loggers. It controls the modem and manages the power supply.

The STS Gold Controller powers-up the Remote Station for initial set-up and testing. It collects, stores, and sends data from the remote dataloggers to the Home Station.

As the data is ‘pushed’ from the Remote Station to the Home Station, there are no dial-up or timing issues. Data cannot be lost due to cellular signal issues, as the STS Gold Controller stores the data in its memory until it has been successfully uploaded by the Home Station. With each communication, system information on battery level, Levelogger status, modem signal strength and status are sent to the Home Station, providing remote diagnostics.

STS/RRL Gold Software Set-up Screens

STS/RRL Gold Software controls both systems, allowing users to manage a project with multiple STS and RRL sites with one program. It is easy to set up the Software with site information, sampling and reporting schedules, and alarm notifications.

A linear 'Sample Rate' is set at which the STS Gold Controller records a real-time reading from each attached datalogger. A 'Report Rate' is set to establish the frequency that the data is sent from the STS Gold Controller to the Home Station.

Each RRL Gold Station is programmed and scheduled using a convenient software wizard.

Leveloggers can be set to record independently of the Telemetry Systems and store the data in their own internal memory, providing a reliable backup, if circumstances require it.

With the choice of cellular or radio, STS and RRL Gold Systems provide communication options to suit your site and application. To determine the best method to meet your requirements you need to evaluate the options available in your area i.e. cellular carriers, and the physical conditions of your site, including topography, nearby buildings, trees, etc.

Cellular

If your telemetry network is within an area of good cellular coverage, then GSM or CDMA wireless communication may be your method of choice. Because data is 'pushed' through the system, power requirements to send data are low.

Radio

If you have no cellular service available, or you are setting up a local network, then radio may be your option. It has the advantage of free airtime and no long distance fees.
