Van Walt launch a brand new Data-Logger

Posted: Tuesday 3rd April 2018

Sometimes good enough is just not good enough. That was the problem Van Walt Ltd, the specialist supplier of water, soil and groundwater environmental research equipment, were experiencing. So taking matters into their own hands; they have designed and developed their own, brand new data-logger the vanwaltDataHub.

"Telemetry is nothing new in the environmental sector. Indeed we have been offering telemetry solutions for several years," said Vincent van Walt, Owner, Van Walt Ltd. "But what we kept coming up against was there is no one-fit solution and our customers often need more than just water level data - there are many systems out there that do just that."

So in looking for a solution Van Walt established there was nothing available that could offer everything they wanted, so they decided to make our own.

The result, just 10 months later, is the vanwaltDataHub. A brand new, very powerful and flexible data-logger, packed with features like multiple, simultaneous inputs and outputs (Pulse, SDI12, Relays, Analog, Modbus and/or Digital I/Os) linking up to 300 different environmental sensors to one data-logger. Data from these sensors can trigger alarms and operate switches; other sensors and gauges.

The vanwaltDataHub instructs, powers, interrogates and collects data from onsite sensors, organising it for distribution or sharing through on-board memory, industrial SD card, radio frequency, GPRS or satellite portals.

"When we embarked on this project we decided we wouldn't settle for anything less than the best," claims Vincent. "We started this project with a long wish-list and I'm proud to say we delivered on everything we wanted."

Van Walt Ltd worked with GB Electronics (UK) Ltd, a dedicated electronics design company for the prototype design, product assembly, programming and testing. When it Matters for the web interface.
