What’s the collective noun for remote monitoring systems?

The photo above shows a portion of 100 RDL//1000 systems in the last phase of testing before a recent delivery to a European client. The order included 100 base stations and 300 wireless sensors (3 per base station). Each sensor measure temperature and Relative Humidity (RH) and has jack points for Wood Moisture Equivalent probes. The wireless…

Can Traffic Induced Vibration Damage Buildings?

While traffic noise is undoubtedly a nuisance to many people, can ground-borne vibrations caused by traffic actually damage buildings? We discuss traffic induced vibration damage. Much work has been carried out where effects of intermittent disturbances causing ground-borne vibration have been studied. The result of work in institutions around the world over decades is that…

Remote monitoring points the way to corrosion prevention

Corrosion of pipework and components in water based heating and cooling systems nearly always results in costly repairs and unwelcome disruption, especially where a large office block, hospital or district heating scheme is concerned. When failures occur in the low temperature hot water (LTHW) or chilled water (CHW) systems the tendency is to investigate the…
