Are you the Instrument Supervisor of a company with many remote sites to monitor?

Are any of these true for you?

  • Remote site monitoring is mandatory – but it’s getting more expensive    
  • Some sites are in remote, dangerous or fragile locations – so sending people isn’t feasible 
  • Technology might be the answer – but reliability & maintenance costs are variable 
  • Technology fit with your infrastructure is critical – but it’s hard to assess beforehand
  • Achieving reliable, remote site monitoring is vital – but it’s been impossible so far. 

 

Have you tried to change things by:

  • Trying out new technologies – but they were unreliable and expensive to maintain
  • Testing alternative technologies – but they didn’t fit your infrastructure & ended up costing more
  • Having custom devices made – but they were costly and couldn’t be reconfigured
  • Using 3G/4G for data transmission – but sites were out of range or coverage was patchy 
  • Installing unattended monitoring devices – but they couldn’t withstand the conditions and ended up costing more for maintenance or replacement.

 

You’ve come to the right place

  • Easy configuration – so it’s easy to set up and change if your parameters or projects change
  • Satellite data transmission – providing global coverage which is not compromised by topography

Who is a good fit with us? 

Pacific Data Systems has helped Instrument Superintendents in Mining, Oil & Gas Exploration, Environmental Monitoring, Aquaculture & Agriculture and Asset Monitoring to achieve remote site monitoring since 1984.  

Many SatVUE customers share these characteristics. Does your organisation?

  • You have many remote sites to monitor – so devices must be cost-effective
  • Your sites are remote, dangerous or fragile – so manual monitoring is not an option
  • You employ non-technical staff on site – so devices must be easy to use
  • You’re outside 3G/4G networks – or the coverage is unreliable  
  • You regard monitoring as vital to your business – and it must be done reliably  
  • You need data to be accurate and regular – irregular or anytime sampling won’t do
  • You’d like a cost-effective solution that meets all these needs.  

If you answered ‘yes’ to some of these, we could be a good for you too. Why not book a Cost Cutting Call to see how much you could save by using SatVue? Find out more here.

 

Who is not a good fit?

Over the years we’ve found that organisations who are not a good fit, answered ‘yes’ to many of these questions:

  • Is remote area monitoring a box to tick – and you really don’t mind how well it’s done or not?
  • Do you have very few sites to monitor – so sending people out is not a major expense?
  • Are your sites within 3G/4G networks – and coverage and reliability are adequate? 
  • Are your sites not in extreme locations – and device cost, reliability or robustness are not really key? 
  • Finding a better solution for remote site monitoring is not a pressing issue right now. When it is, please give us a call.

If we extended SatVue to other sites to measure groundwater and other parameters like stream chemistry, the return would be even more impressive.
