Following the recent flood events the Environment Agency’s NWQIS team have deployed sixteen MCE-ESNET units on the Somerset Levels, monitoring Water Quality in rivers during the continued pumping operations. Meteor have provided a dedicated web portal with recent data not only from the ESNET units but also from existing EA water level gauging stations and pumps. The complete system was operational within 48 hours, showing the speed at which the NWQIS team can respond using Meteor technologies.
A Meteor MCE-NEXUS camera located at a river in the south of england gives a good indication of the massive volume of water that has recently been passing through, helping local flood defence officers to determine not just the water level but also the impact in relation to local infrastructure and the banks. A low power device which can be deployed to any site with GPRS coverage the Nexus camera gives a fast, effective solution to monitoring of remote assets.

A new Tankered Domestic Waste Logger has been installed for Severn Trent Water at Longbridge Sewage Treatment Works, adding to their current network of 39 loggers. The system was up and running within 3 hours of arrival on site, showing the quick deployment nature of the logger. For more information on our TDW systems click here
Meteor have developed a Field Deployable remote power system using EFOY methanol fuel cells. The concept has evolved in house to provide a secure, fireproof unit which contains the fuel cell, battery pack and fuel cartridges. The battery pack is optimised to the required load and the characteristics of the fuel cell to ensure maximum efficiency. It is designed for easy deployment and to cater for high power loads, or for situations where solar panels would be too conspicuous.
Come and visit us on Thursday 26th September at SWIG 2013, taking place this year at the Nottinghm Belfry Hotel. We will be happy to discuss the exciting developments that have happened since SWIG 2012 and give live demonstrations of cutting edge, real time monitoring technology in action.
Users are taking advantage of a new powerful feature at the Meteor Data Centre, allowing customised live data portals to be published to the web. Controlled views and datasets can be created which then update in real time. Some recent examples include a site for anglers on the River Thames (click here) and an EA project at Marlow (click here)
The launch event was held on Wednesday 24th July for the Environment Agency’s interactive kiosk at Bude Summerleaze beach, providing a touch screen portal for visitors to access bathing water quality and information about the beach. Meteor are delighted to be involved with the project, providing the IT infrastructure, developing the web technologies and integration with social media sites as an add-on to the Meteor Data Centre. For an interactive display of the Meteor Data Centre in action please click here. For further info about the kiosk from the EA website click here
This recently installed system shows the versatility of Meteor’s telemetry solutions. Using an MCC-972XS a 4KW Solar system is being monitored to show generated power.
Using the Meteor Data Centre open link tool the user can generate custom displays which can then be shared with colleagues, stakeholders or the general public. Click here to access an open link for the solar system, with widgets to Met Office forecast data and google earth.
