Global Water's SIT70 Satellite Internet Telemetry provides the easiest and most economical way to collect environmental data remotely

The remote system uses the latest satellite and Internet technologies to bring data to your computer in near real time. It includes a data transmitter and a rechargeable battery enclosed in a rugged, water resistant, and lockable enclosure; a ground-to-satellite antenna; and mounting hardware.

The SIT70 system will interface with most sensors, including all of Global Water's rugged 4-20 mA sensors. The power supply can support 5VDC, 12VDC, or 18VDC sensors. It includes up to eight analog inputs, up to four factory programmable status/accumulator inputs, and up to four control outputs.

The system is simple to set up and operate: just hook up your sensors, point the antenna to the sky, and turn on your telemetry equipment. Satellite service is available anywhere in the world. It uses UHF frequencies to contact a large number of satellites in orbit resulting in a maximum latency rate of four minutes with a half hour transmission rate. Data is transmitted from the system based on programmed time intervals and/or alarms and is transferred via satellite and Internet to a dedicated web page. You can monitor and collect data anywhere you have web access.
