Groundwater Data Your Way!

It’s no secret that pairing telemetry with groundwater sensors saves time and resources from having to manually collect readings in the field. However, groundwater telemetry networks can be limited by the availability of transmission coverage in the area of often remote wells.

OTT Hydromet and Sutron have combined capabilities to offer extremely flexible and comprehensive telemetry options for transmission of groundwater level and quality data via the OTT ecoLog series and by pairing OTT and Hydrolab sensors with the Sutron Well Cap.

Now, you can receive groundwater data via GPRS (like AT&T and T-Mobile), HSPA, and CDMA (like Verizon) cellular protocols as well as the iridium satellite for the most remote locations! Better yet, this data can now be viewed, managed, and analyzed via the SutronWIN data portal and mobile app!

Tide Level Monitoring in Scotland with the OTT RLS Radar Level Sensor

While the OTT RLS is excellent for non-contact measurement of rivers, lakes, and reservoirs, it’s also very well suited to measure tide water level in bays and estuaries.

In an interesting application in Scotland, the OTT RLS (along with OTT CBS and Lufft Ventus) is used to help ferry masters on the west coast of Scotland assess whether a port a has appropriate tide and weather conditions to harbor there. Ferries are crucial for local transportation in this region and historically, ferry masters have had to visually assess whether a port is suitable for landing. Ferry landings can be dangerous with high winds and rough seas.
