The X2 is an all-in-one environmental data logger that can be controlled from any internet browser using a smartphone, tablet, or PC. It automatically recognizes sensors and sends data to the web via Wi-Fi, cellular, radio, or satellite telemetry. The X2 includes three sensor ports that are compatible with most environmental sensor protocols including SDI-12, RS-232, and RS-485. All connections are made with a simple thread-in connector, and the built-in sensor library automatically facilitates setup and configuration. Data is stored on common or independent schedules.

The X2 can be powered with just few alkaline batteries. Advanced power management combined with ultra-low sleep and run currents extend battery life and eliminate the need for multi-battery arrays or large solar charging systems. Smart power circuits automatically switch to reserve power when the main source is depleted. The X2 monitors itself while collecting environmental data. Internal temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, voltages and currents are constantly recorded. Failure alerts can be sent automatically to a predefined list of contacts.

The X2 includes built-in Wi-Fi for smartphone, tablet, or PC connection. Through the local Wi-Fi connection, users can view and download data, change settings, or troubleshoot. Optional integrated cellular or satellite telemetry modules offer real-time remote communications via the WQData LIVE web datacenter. There, data is presented on a fully-featured and easy-to-use dashboard. Other features include automated reports, alarms, push notifications and much more.

Wireless Mesh Environmental Sensing Network System Tested

For scientists working in the field, monitoring for data isn't enough—you have to get that data back. This is of course true, no matter how sophisticated a real-time monitoring solution is. Recent testing of a wireless mesh environmental sensing network at Virginia Tech reveals a promising new option for this kind of problem, and Innovative Wireless Technolog ies (IWT) principal investigator Matthew Fisher spoke to EM about the testing and the network: Envōk . Solving data transmission difficulties wirelessly Since 1997, Innovative Wireless Technologies has been developing wireless products that use 900 megahertz radios in mesh networking technologies.

Digital Mayfly Data Logger Sensor Stations Monitoring Watersheds

For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed. “ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.

Robotic Fish May Reduce Live Fish Testing Near Hydroelectric Plants

Each year in Germany, as many as 450,000 living fish undergo live animal experiments to test how fish-friendly hydroelectric power plants in the country are. The idea is to discover how readily the fish can move through hydroelectric turbine installations in order to ultimately reduce mortality rates. Of course, subjecting live fish to a potentially deadly test to save others is a bitter irony. And it's one that a team of scientists from the RETERO research project hopes to eventually mitigate with a robotic fish for testing. EM corresponded with Olivier Cleynen and Stefan Hoerner from the University of Magdeburg about the complex flow conditions that set the parameters for the project.
