Neon Remote Terminal (NRT) with Cellular or Satellite Transceiver

The Neon Remote Terminal (NRT) combines a data logger with either a duplex cellular or satellite transceiver. The NRT is designed to automate collection of remote data from environmental monitoring, industrial measurement, Neon Satelliteand utility metering sites. Neon Terrestrial NRT It connects to sensors in the field, collects readings from the sensors, and transmits the collected data to a central server. Fully bidirectional communication is possible via the Neon server - data can be collected directly, and the NRT programmed, from any internet connection on the globe.

Neon Satellite Remote Terminal
(NRT Satellite)

The NRT-Cellular (Terrestrial) utilizes the popular GSM/GPRS cellular network which is very cost effective in both hardware and transmission fees. The NRT-Satellite utilizes the international Globalstar LEO Satellite network and is suited for remote monitoring sites outside of cellular coverage.

The NRT built-in modem supports packet data, switchboard circuit data, and SMS communications. Long battery life and low operating costs are made possible through use of advanced microcontroller technology and an efficient protocol that takes advantage of GSM/GPRS and Globalstar packet data transfer capability. With 15000 data point storage capacity and built-in analog, digital and SDI-12 channels no additional data logger is required for simple monitoring applications. For expanded monitoring applications, the Neon can be connected to the Unidata Starlog Series of Data Loggers and any SDI-12 compatible instrument such as the Eureka Multi-Parameter Water Quality Sonde.

Neon Client/Server Application Software System

A web based client system server software is available for users who are operating large monitoring networks and want the remote data sent directly to their server. For smaller applications, the secure Unidata Neon host server can be utilized for a monthly fee. Either way you have full multi-level administration and end user control to load, verify, and unload your NRT directly from any internet access point. You can access the data in tabular or graphical form, as well as receive alerts and alarms via email, SMS messages, or voice calls.

The system has been specifically designed for environmental data collection and automated meter reading. Low cost and very low power consumption have been key design targets.
