Aquaread Point Orange Telemetry

Point Orange provides real-time remote monitoring of up to 5 programmable sensors. It has software  programmable I/O functionality for hundreds of configurable combinations and includes support for analogue, digital and counter inputs. The Point Orange can also communicate with third-party serial devices over Modbus (using RS232 and RS485) or SDI-12. In addition to the multiple configuration options the Point Orange offers local monitoring of battery voltage, cellular signal strength and ambient temperature.

The RTU offers a plug and play solution that minimises the need for additional site visits, with remote management functions including remote firmware upgrade enabling associated cost-savings. It can store thousands of records in memory for later retrieval by SCADA systems.

The Point Orange was designed from the outset as a self-contained, low cost fit-and-forget unit for use in harsh and hazardous environments in remote locations. Its design exploits mainstream technologies which help to minimise costs whilst at the same time ensuring reliability and a long product life. The latest developments in low power technology are used, allowing the Point Orange to derive all the power it needs (including sensor power, if required) from an internal lithium battery pack. This, together with an integral 3G modem, ensures a long service life with low infrastructure costs.
