Battery powered RTU
Battery operation


If you need it to work in the field on battery power then there are a few things to think about …

  • quiescent power consumption to maximise life,
  • local intelligence & real time monitoring.
  • SD card to act as “black box flight recorder” to capture granular measurements not viably transferable via GSM
  • Smart batteries, with remote Battery condition monitoring
  • on-board battery back-up in case of primary battery failure, to alert you if there is a problem
    • If they’re relevant, check out the NanoULTRA which ticks all those boxes, with up to 5 years battery life!
