Wireless Data Acquisition

Wireless data acquisition collects and forwards measurements from the project site to GeoCloud servers for processing and integration.

Wireless Data Logging - Graphic

Wireless systems, loggers, and nodes transmit measurements from the site to GeoCloud servers on the internet.

GeoCloud servers process, integrate, and store the incoming measurements for display on GeoCloud websites.

GeoCloud websites provide 24/7 access to alerts, graphs, and reports.

Wireless Systems

Wireless systems perform specialized measurement & control functions to operate complex systems such as automated total stations, vibration monitors, dust monitors, construction cameras, and extended arrays of instruments. Systems are powered by battery and solar panel and transmit measurements to the internet via cellular modems.

Wireless Loggers and Nodes

Wireless loggers and nodes typically perform simpler measurement functions for a single type of sensor. They are supplied in compact, weatherproof enclosures and powered by long-life batteries. These devices relay their measurements to cellular gateways to the internet.  Learn about Geocloud wireless loggers and nodes.
