What does the RoHS certification mean for OTT products?

RoHs_OTT

The EU Directive 2011/65 / EU is intended to limit the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. Since 22 July 2017 the RoHS regulation is applicable to monitoring and control instruments, including OTT devices and sensors. From this point onwards, we must have a RoHS certification for all devices and sensors. As of 22 July, RoHS is also a compulsory part of the CE declaration.

Without CE and RoHS, corresponding products may no longer be sold in the EU (and countries that are adapting to the EU-Directive). An exception is spare parts and parts, which are used for repair.

As a manufacturer of environmental measurement technology, we have always been committed to producing and marketing environmentally friendly products.

In order to implement the RoHS measures in our company, we have created a coordination center that has examined and, if necessary, changed all of the 30,000 articles and products.

What is RoHS?
RoHS means “Restriction of Certain Hazardous Substances” in the “Hazardous Substances Directive” in electrical and electronic equipment. This restriction is anchored in EU Directive 2011/65 / EU. If a product is RoHS-certified, this confirms that the proportion of hazardous, or difficult to dispose substances is limited to the maximum allowed. Continue reading

QUALITY ASSURANCE AND QUALITY CONTROL TECHNICAL NOTE

Download the Quality Assurance and Quality Control Technical Note Now!

The primary activities taken to assure and control data quality are aptly called quality assurance and quality control. Determining the “true value” of a water quality measurement is an important fundamental of any QA/QC program. To determine the true value, many professionals apply a second means of measuring the parameter of interest, such as another instrument that is kept serviced and calibrated just for quality control purposes or a grab sample that is evaluated using a trusted laboratory technique. Instruments such as HYDROLAB‘s produce high quality data for many applications and by leveraging the HYDROLAB Operating System you can maximize uptime with streamlined calibration tasks

Good QA/QC programs require robust calibration procedures that ultimately provide valuable information about, and confidence in, the instrument’s performance. The QA/QC Tech note highlights key information made available during a HYDROLAB multi-parameter water quality sonde calibration.

Location, Location, Location: Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

com-remote1

Because of the remote locations and naturally harsh environments of many water resources, monitoring and communicating the resulting data is not always simple or straightforward. Telemetry is an automated process for performing measurements and collecting data back to receiving equipment for analysis. Remote or inaccessible locations require the use of different radio communication technologies integrated into the telemetry system to transmit the information. Therefore, a remote telemetry system is a necessary tool for many water resource monitoring professionals.

Download our whitepaper and get an in depth look at using the most effective and efficient telemetry method to monitor and transmit water resource data based on the location of the application.

Sutron SatLink3 XMTR, a new HDR (1200 BPS) Transmitter for METEOSAT

OTT Hydromet is pleased to announce EUMETSAT – SL3-XMTR-NETDLHRDCP and SRDCP certification for the Sutron SatLink3 XMTR. METEOSAT high data rates of 1200 bps, as well as 100 bps, can now be used with the SatLink3 XMTR transmitter paired with the OTT netDL IP logger or the Wi-Fi enabled SatLink3 multi-communication logging transmitter.

Pairing the Sutron SatLink3 (SL3) XMTR Transmitter with an OTT netDL 500 / 1000 enables transmission of the OTT netDL datalogger buffer to METEOSAT. Different operating modes are available ranging from logger control of transmitter setup to scheduling the logger to send a buffer to the transmitter using RS-232. The transmitter automatically selects the proper RF output power based on antenna selection made by the user. The SL3 XMTR Transmitter supports the METEOSAT 100 and 1200 bps format and formats of other Environmental Satellites orbiting the globe,including GOES.

The SatLink3 multi-communication logging transmitter provides a cost-effective way to measure, log, calculate and transmit data from remote locations around the world. SL3 has built-in support for nearly all meteorological satellites including GOES, METEOSAT, INSAT and MTSAT for operation anywhere. Most often the SL3 is connected to sensors and transmits data on a user-set schedule, the Satlink3 has options for redundant and two-way communication using cellular and Iridium communications. Satlink3 builds upon Sutron’s 35 years’ experience providing reliable satellite communications.
