Remote Monitoring with Telemetry, Part 2


In Remote Monitoring with Telemetry: Part 1,  we reviewed the top 10 advantages of using radio telemetry for remote monitoring. Those benefits included faster response time, lower cost, security, low maintenance, ease-of-use, and more. But there’s also more to telemetry than the basics. In Part 2, we’ll take a look at transmission distance and signal power for use of telemetery in automation solutions.

Automation Solutions: Remote Monitoring with Telemetry, Part 1


What is Telemetry?

Telemetry is defined as the sensing and measuring of information at one location and then transmitting that information to a central or host location (PLC / DCS). There, it can be remotely monitored and used to control a process at the remote site.

The basic concept of remote monitoring with telemetry has been in existence for a long time. Radio telemetry provides a classic but versatile wireless method for transmitting information. Telemetry using radio waves or wireless offers several distinct advantages over other transmission methods, from cost benefits to resilience and security.

In Part 1 of this guide, we’ll look at the benefits of using telemetry in your automation solutions. Continue reading “Automation Solutions: Remote Monitoring with Telemetry, Part 1”
