Where speed of deployment and high quality data are key requirements, Meteor has a track record of providing optimal rental solutions for:
- Abstraction Monitoring
- Pollution Incidents (fires, illegal discharges into rivers)
- Public Events (concerts)
- Construction impact monitoring (airports, roads)
Meteor provide a comprehensive hire service trusted by Consultants, Water Companies and Government Agencies looking to quickly deploy monitoring systems for projects, event monitoring and surveys. Our hire systems range from telemetry equipment “box” hire through to complete managed service solutions, whereby we work with the customer to provide a system which is economic, effective and comprehensive.
We cover all technical aspects of the hire, from sourcing appropriate sensors through to full web display and customer alarm setup. Using robust and reliable equipment such as the MCC-972 ESNETthe equipment can be located virtually anywhere and is robust enough to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Coupled with Meteor’s suite of web data services, alarm packages and site support we offer the optimum solution.
Meteor field teams can survey (either desktop or site) the locations prior to installation and identify suitable monitoring points and sensors appropriate to the application. We then select an appropriate communications plan, for example GPRS transfer with secure web portal access. The sensor payload, data collection frequency, deployment period and communication option will determine the required power pack, generally a small battery with solar charge option.
With the system specification set we can usually dispatch equipment within 48 hours (depending on sensor requirements). Meteor keep a stock of all commonly used equipment in readiness, including items such as level sensors, water quality instruments and connection cables.
Our installation teams have UK coverage and are proficient in all aspects of sensor and telemetry setup. Many installations do not even require the client to be present. We can provide a site maintenance plan for longer term deployments, whereby routine sensor calibrations, manual sampling and changeovers are conducted by trained Meteor engineers with no interruptions in data.
Once a system is deployed Meteor remotely monitor the equipment to identify any issues with the sensors, communications or power supply and can proactively resolve before data integrity is threatened.
