GET MEASUREMENT DATA FROM REMOTE LOCATIONS ANYWHERE ON THE PLANET

Our satellite communicating telemetry products for measurement in locations where infrastructure is lacking are self-sufficient in power thanks to high- end batteries and solar cells. Place a station anywhere on the planet, turn it on and you will get your measured date in our web portal immediately.

Our Remote Measurement solutions gather measurement data in locations where infrastructure is lacking. This is possible because measurement data is sent by satellite and our stations have their own power supplies.

Unlike measuring equipment that sends data via mobile telephony networks, satellite-based telemetry does not rely on having a base station nearby. Our measurement stations have equally good coverage anywhere in the world, regardless of latitude and longitude. Our Remote Measurement products are used by companies and authorities that need to measure and monitor aquatic environments, machinery and equipment, and weather conditions.

Novator Solutions’ equipment has been developed to operate for an extended period under difficult conditions. It is classified for temperatures ranging from -40°C to +80°C and rated as an IP65 enclosure in terms of dust and moisture protection.

Our measurement stations are self-sufficient in terms of both operation and communication systems. They are equipped with batteries that have a service life of between 10 and 15 years. The batteries are charged continuously through the equipment’s solar cells. All data is sent by satellite, so neither cables or ground-based networks are necessary.

LevelCatchR measures water levels in lakes, dams, rivers, tanks, and water reservoirs. It also measures groundwater levels and temperatures. You can receive alerts about any deviations by e-mail or text message. It is also easy to follow up and compare historical data.

 

LevelCatchR

Our CatchR stations are tailored for easy deployment, even in extremely remote areas and harsh environments. Being battery powered and charged by solar panels make them completely self-sufficient in terms of power. Thanks to Iridium satellite communication you can measure anywhere on the planet. Measure water level or flow, weather and machine states.

  • Measure water levels in remote, distant and isolated locations without power and communications.
  • CatchR stations can withstand temperatures -40° to 80°C in very harsh environments.
  • Place them anywhere on the planet and then start to receive your measured water level data.
  • The CatchR stations is best in class when it comes to reliability and robustness.
  • Easy deployment and no programming needed. Just install, turn on, log in and get your data.

By default, LevelCatchR is equipped with either a differential pressure sensor or an ultrasonic sensor to measure fluid level. Additionally, it can be specially equipped with extra sensors to measure information such as particle content, salinity and conductivity.

Via our web portal www.remotemeasurement.com you can, as a customer, login in and access your own data center where you manage all your CatchR stations. You can view your water level data in graphs, export the data to Excel, set alarm levels, administrate your users. And configure how to receive alarms via SMS text messages or email. Place the CatchR station anywhere on the planet and get the water level data to your computer or cellphone.

 

Examples of water level measurements applications perfectly suited for the LevelCatchR:

  • Tailing dams at mining sites
  • Legacy mining sites
  • Water reservoirs for hydropower
  • Flood warnings in rivers and lakes
  • Groundwater levels and saltwater intrusion detection

dam

FlowCatchR

FlowCatchR measures water flow and water depth in rivers, canals, culverts, and spillways. FlowCatchR sends alerts by e-mail or text message; for example, when water depth deviates from the norm. You can also look at historical data and compare it with current values.

The two most common ways to measure flow with FlowCatchR are either directly by using a Doppler radar or indirectly by measuring levels in a weir. As with the LevelCatchR, it can be equipped with extra sensors.

Examples of application areas

  • Leakage monitoring at tailing dams and legacy mining sites
  • Flood warnings in rivers and canals
  • Irrigation planning
  • Hydropower planning

weather station in artic conditions

WeatherCatchR

WeatherCatchR measures and reports weather conditions. These conditions can include temperature, atmospheric pressure, relative humidity, precipitation, wind speed, and wind direction.

WeatherCatchR is ideal for monitoring weather conditions at remote locations where there is no infrastructure and where it is difficult to have manned weather stations. Our weather stations are solar-powered, and they send measurement values and reports of weather conditions continuously via satellite.

Our equipment is combined with appropriate measuring equipment. If you have several WeatherCatchR units, you can easily compare and read reports from all stations on your computer.

diesel-powered generator

AlarmCatchR

AlarmCatchR is used to monitor diesel-powered generators, pumps, and machines in remote locations where there is no infrastructure for power or communications. With AlarmCatchR, you can monitor equipment at all times.

When there is no electricity to power equipment such as pumps, base stations for GSM, and other energy-demanding machines, diesel-powered power stations or generators are often used. The machines are often unsupervised and have to operate for long periods without disruption.

As a result, it is particularly important to receive alerts as soon as anything stops working as it should. Whenever there is a change in the status of the equipment, the AlarmCatchR sends an alert by e-mail or text message. Then you can quickly dispatch resources to fix the problem.

CatchR∙Link

CatchR∙Link transfers data from remote sensors right into your SCADA system. With CatchR∙Link, it is easy to add sensors and alarm points to your SCADA system so that you can receive data from remote, otherwise inaccessible, locations.

A CatchR∙Link station located close to the SCADA system receives data via GPRS or satellite from CatchR measuring stations. Then this measurement data is made available for the SCADA system using, for example, Modbus RTU.

CatchR Base station 

CatchR Base Station

CatchR Base Station is needed to remotely measure and transmit data. This unit can communicate with a number of different external sensors by, for example, RS485 and TCP/IP. By connecting various sensors to the base unit, you can adapt the CatchR Base Station to measure just about anything, anywhere, and anytime.

CatchR Base Station does not require extensive cabling as no external power supply is required, and it can remain in place for several years in the roughest weather without needing to be serviced.

The measuring equipment is self-sufficient in terms of electricity. It is powered by solar cells and has rechargeable batteries with an extremely long service life.

Installing a CatchR measurement station is very simple. After installation, measurement data starts being sent to your computer via satellite without your needing to be on-site to read the instruments. You can even receive updated measurement values and statistics every hour of every day of the year if you want.
