2022 – Rugged, Wireless, Low-Power Devices for Keeping Tabs on Your Dams

Philip Winter Manawa Energy

Traditionally, monitoring equipment for remote monitoring has required instruments to be hardwired to allow readings to be recorded. This has limited such installations to locations where the economics of installation are favourable. Monitoring and surveillance programmes on dams and embankments tend to have manual techniques. Remote monitoring technology allows for more frequent and weather independent data capture. Low power usage design and the use of VHF radio frequencies (enabling data transmission over large distances and in challenging conditions), can provide an improved understanding of a dam’s performance through a range of operating conditions.
