3D Laser Mapping Launch New Environmental Monitoring Solutions

April 16, 2013 -- 3D Laser Mapping has launched a range of remote satellite monitoring solutions that will allow data from laser scanners and other sensors to be transmitted from inaccessible and inhospitable environments.  The CatchR solutions include systems for water flow, depth and level monitoring, equipment status reporting, detection of toxic substances and weather reporting. The robust measurement units collect and record a range of data which is then automatically transmitted, via satellites, to a secure data server.  Users can view data online and alarms can received as emails and SMS messages.  The CatchR systems on offer from 3D Laser Mapping have been developed by Swedish based Novator Solutions.

“The CatchR solutions will complement our own SiteMonitor system which is already in use in mines and other challenging environments around the world,” commented Jon Chicken, Managing Director of 3D Laser Mapping. “CatchR systems can be used to monitor equipment, such as generators, power plants or pumping stations, and detect and report the presence of toxic substances, even operating in emergency situations when other infrastructure may be lost. CatchR systems also include solutions for monitoring water levels in lakes, dams, rivers and reservoirs and can report on water flow and depth.”

“3D Laser Mapping is a natural partner to take our advanced monitoring solutions to the wider market,” commented A N Other, Senior Position at Novator. “Their expertise and experience of remote monitoring systems and applications, gained through the development, deployment and support of the SiteMonitoring system, is second to none.”

The CatchR Basic is a self-sufficient unit for remote collection and transmission of measurement data. Contained within a specially designed enclosure the system includes a low power computer that communicates with external sensors to collect data which is then transmitted, using the built in satellite modem, via an external antennae. CatchR solutions include a high end rechargeable battery that supplies power to the system components which can be replenished by an external DC power supply or by solar or wind.

“CatchR systems are self-sufficient with long battery life ensuring operation weeks after local power loss; they can even be recharged by wind or solar generating systems making them environmentally friendly too. They can operate in sub-zero temperatures as well as in extreme heat and humidity and can be deployed in remote places without the need for external infrastructure,” concluded Jon Chicken.
