Telemetry & Industrial Application Solutions
A remote terminal unit is a micro-processor controlled electronic device which interfaces with a distributed control system (SCADA system) by transmitting telemetry data to the system.
Universal Com Link is the leader in providing such systems, from sensors, meters and controllers, to telemetry and complete SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems for full plant or process control. We also supply systems for monitoring the effectiveness of biological, disinfection, and other treatment systems.What is Telemetry
Telemetry is a technology that allows remote measurement and reporting of information. Although the term commonly refers to wireless data transfer mechanisms (e.g. using two-way radio, WiFi, or satellite), it also encompasses data transferred over other media, such as a telephone, computer network, or other wired communications.
Most modern water and wastewater processes are controlled by sophisticated computer-based systems. Telemetry has become indispensable for water management applications, including water quality, distribution and stream gauging functions.
In factories, buildings and houses, energy consumption of systems such as HVAC are monitored at multiple locations, together with the related parameters (e.g. temperature) via wireless telemetry to one central location. The information is collected and processed enabling intelligent decisions regarding the most efficient use of energy to be implemented.
Telemetry hardware is useful for tracking persons and property in law enforcement. An ankle collar worn by convicts on probation can warn authorities if a person violates the terms of his or her parole, such as by straying from authorized boundaries or visiting an unauthorized location. Telemetry equipment has also given rise to the concept of bait cars, where law enforcement can rig a car with cameras and tracking equipment and leave it somewhere they expect it to be stolen. When stolen, the telemetry equipment reports the location of the vehicle, and gives law enforcement the ability to deactivate the engine and lock the doors once it is stopped by responding officers.
