There isn’t anywhere in the world quite like London. It’s a city which combines old and new to create a marvellous metropolitan mix. It has a rich history but also leads the way with technology, and remote telemetry is certainly a part of that. Essentially it’s the process of data collection and you’d be surprised how often it’s used, from mining to television broadcasts. It can be used in our everyday utilities, too.
Water is a vital part of human life. In a city which homes over 10 million people, it is no mean feat providing it for everyone. Remote telemetry devices, like the ones provided by Servelec, can be a huge help. They monitor water supply, and reduce risks of potential pollution and sewer damages. These devices can ensure water supplies are constantly protected, which means less maintenance as it can issue warnings as and when the water needs. Londoners can rest easy, knowing their water supplies are safe and sanitary.
You’d struggle to find a home in London which doesn’t use gas. Ovens, boilers, heating, we could go on. How are service providers using remote telemetry to warm up London over winter? It turns out, pretty effectively. By using certain devices, they can measure the flow and pressure of gas. These devices can even check on the equipment the gas is being stored in. Gas supplies are always being monitored, and the systems can be adjusted accordingly so the flow can be constantly running as smoothly as possible.
Anywhere from the bright lights of the West End to the clubs in Camden, London is a city that never sleeps. Being a twenty-four seven city means you need a lot of power to keep it going. A two-minute tube delay can cause panic, let alone a full city blackout. This is where remote telemetry devices can, once again, come into play. They can monitor powerlines to make sure everything is running effectively, and can get an alarm out if work is urgently needed.
If there is one thing the British take seriously, it’s the weather. You can’t blame us, it can cause absolute havoc. If it’s too hot or too cold, we have a problem. And so do our utilities. Water could freeze, powerlines get struck in a storm, or equipment can overheat. Remote telemetry can monitor the weather and let people know if severe conditions are ahead, giving them time to prepare.
