The Octopus telemetry logger from Halma Water Management is designed for multiple applications, including open-channel level and flow monitoring, flow and rainfall measurement, pump usage, and network pressure monitoring.

The logger offers five-year battery life, remote programming, multiple inputs and outputs and a fully submersible waterproof housing. It has multiple integrated telemetry options, including GSM and PSTN Landline, to transmit data automatically to the user. A switch option enables it to drive additional equipment, such as samplers.

“Whatever type of data needs to be logged, if it can be captured, it can be stored via the Octopus and then be plugged into SCADA systems,” says Griff Machinski, Eastern U.S. sales manager for Fluid Conservation Systems Inc., U.S. sales and service arm for Halma Water Management products.

“It can work off its own radio telemetry, Short Message Service (SMS) or e-mail messaging. The datalogger plugs into any combination of sensor inputs, digital or analog, 4-20 milliamps.” The telemetry unit can be used to monitor systems or tank levels. It also offers the benefits of a SCADA system in remote areas where power is not available.

Data is processed using the Winfluid software package and is available for local PC and PDA download. Full telemetry programming, reporting and alarm options are offered. Made of diecast aluminum, the logger has an operating temperature range of -4 to 158 degrees F. For information: 800/531-5465; www.fluidconservation.com.
