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.

Tech Tip: Images from your measuring site with an IP cam, captured and transmitted with the IP data logger OTT netDL

In addition to the measured values, images from your measuring site and its surroundings can  provide valuable additional information that will help you operate and maintain the station. You can also use such a picture in the field of public relations, if you publish live pictures of different sites on you homepage.

In the current TechTip, you will learn how the solutions are set up with an IP data logger OTT netDL. An example download configuration will help you!

A Four-Step Guide to Accurately Calculating Surface Water Discharge

Today, a wide range of government agencies, municipalities, utility companies, and private companies need to monitor water flow in rivers, streams, and canals for a variety of reasons ranging from predicting water availability and flood events to allocating water resources and planning for future development. At a high-level, these organizations are concerned with the water flow and discharge of the surface water in a particular area. More specifically, water discharge, which is the volume of water moving through the cross section of a stream or river during a particular unit of time, is typically computed by multiplying the area of water in a channel cross section by the average velocity of the water in that cross section. This measurement is commonly expressed in cubic feet per second or gallons per day. Discharge measurements also take into account any suspended solids, dissolved chemicals, or biologic materials that are transported in the water through the cross section as well.
This whitepaper will provide a general guide for taking the necessary steps to calculate accurate surface water discharge measurements, including considerations for selecting the most ideal monitoring site, the technologies available for various site conditions, and how to ensure your systems continuously provides accurate data through modern quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) methods.
