UNDERGROUND MONITORING IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

The Telog Ru-35 provides real-time monitoring and alarming of flow, pressure and water quality instruments and sensors found in the harsh environments of sewers and underground water vaults. When you combine the Telog Ru-35 RTU with a Trimble Telog software option, you have a powerful system of wireless wastewater infrastructure monitoring that is consistently delivering real-time data and alarms from the field, straight to your desktop or browser. This provides situational awareness of the performance of the collection system, improves regulatory compliance and enables network modeling calibration.

Sensor Support
The Telog Ru-35 supports multiple sensor interface options including RS-232, RS-485, analog and digital inputs with MODBUS, SDI-12 and I2C protocol support. For example, when connected to an open-channel flowmeter via RS-232, the RTU can interrogate the meter for its most recent level, flow velocity and battery voltage measurements. Trimble Telog also provides optional sensors that may be directly attached to the Telog Ru-35 including ultrasonic and pressure level, water quality sondes, temperature, level switches and rain gauges.

Wireless Communication
Using cellular technology enables unmanned monitoring of remote sites as well as instant updates and alarm notifications. The Ru-35 uses a low power, 4G LTE/Cat 1 cellular communication modem certified on multiple cellular systems. This ensures maximum coverage, reliability of service and alignment with cellular carriers technology roadmaps.

Collecting Data
The Telog Ru-35 may be configured to call its host server on a schedule (e.g. once per day; every four hours, etc.) and/or in response to site alarm conditions (e.g. in response to a high level event). Data may be stored in the recorder at user defined intervals (e.g. five minutes, one minute, etc.) without concern for data loss, because the recorder will store from 150,000 to 670,000 values, depending on input type, before overwriting the oldest data.

Packaging
The cellular modem, antenna, process signal conditioning, data recorder and battery are integrated into an IP68 rated, environmentally rugged package weighing nine pounds (four Kg) and measuring cuboid 7.3” (185mm) L x 4.2” (107mm) W x 11.5” (292mm)H. Battery Powered This RTU is powered by dual user replaceable 6-volt lantern batteries providing an operating life of six months to two years depending on the sensor interface and call schedules.

Software Support
Trimble Telog wireless recorders are compatible with all Telog software applications, including Telog Online (cloud), Trimble Unity, Telog Enterprise and Telogers for Windows application software. This ensures that utilities have a complete solution addressing all their remote monitoring requirements delivered in a manner that suits each individual utility’s operations and IT needs.
