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.
We are delighted to introduce the Nexus GPRS camera. This low power, competitively priced, robust unit captures high resolution images from any location and can present them to the web, smartphone or email. For remote environmental monitoring to security and detection the camera has a multitude of applications.
Despite the blizzard conditions an extra DTC monitoring Kiosk has been installed on the River Wensum in Norfolk. This builds on the current monitoring network already in place and demonstrates the success of the stations installed to date. For more details on the DTC project click here
The installation team have stated that the picture is not representative of the weather conditions encountered during the install!
Meteor rounded off the first day of the SWIG “Data Visualisation and Interpretation” Event 2012 with a presentation highlighting the practical, cutting edge solutions currently being used for Data Collection, Management and Visualisation in the water industry today.
To finish Meteor walked through the upcoming release of their popular Meteor Data Centre web portal, showcasing the powerful MCE-Publish tool which allows authorized users to embed, mark-up and publish visualised content directly to the web quickly and securely. Visit our Meteor in Action page for more details.
The full presentation is available to download in PDF format here.
We will be presenting at the forthcoming SWIG event “Data Visualisation and Interpretation”, showing some of the powerful web tools that are available for display, analysis and control of data using Meteor applications.
Please come and join us as we will also have a display of our equipment and a live demonstration of water quality events in progress.
The event takes place on 21st November at Chateau Impey, Droitwich Spa. Please feel free to contact us for information or go to the SWIG webpages at www.swig.org.uk
