Over 1500 Isodaq “Frog” GPRS Data Loggers Installed

Posted: Friday 23rd September 2011

Isodaq’s Frog RX GPRS data logger is proving a major industry success, with over 1500 units already installed in the water and environmental monitoring sector, both in the UK and overseas, in organizations including local drainage authorities, water companies, government organizations such as the Environment Agency, monitoring contractors, consultants and universities.

The Frog’s innovative design ensures ease of installation, due to its in-built GSM antennae, which enables it to be hung inside a 100mm diameter tube, for example a borehole or riverside stilling-pipe.

This flexibility, together with the extensive range of possible inputs from a wide variety of battery-powered sensors - with both analogue and digital sensors, including multi-channel SDI-12 sensors - makes the Frog ideally suited to a wide range of applications, including the monitoring of tipping bucket rain-gauges, river-level early warning stations, borehole level logging and groundwater monitoring.

The lower cost of ownership and ease of installation of Frog RX has won it several prestigious European framework contracts with government organizations including the UK Environment Agency, Ireland’s Environmental Protection Agency, NVE Norway and the Danish Meteorological Institute.

Hydro-Logic MD, Rod Hawnt, comments; “Each of these organizations recognized Frog’s potential for significant cost savings when operating large networks of battery-powered GPRS loggers by using long-life lithium batteries to reduce the frequency and cost of site visits combined with much lower communications costs of annual GPRS service charges”.
