Description

The Environmental Monitoring Station Controllers – 3580 Master Series were designed to monitor environmental sensors and send control signals to an advanced warning system. Conditions like water level, visibility, wind speed, or road temperature can be monitored by an Environmental Monitoring Station Controller which can send a control signal to a remote warning system to alert the public to an emergency condition. Alternatively the Environmental Monitoring Station Controllers can locally control a system using its control outputs.

The Environmental Monitoring Station Controller includes a Hydromet Data Logger/Controller – Model 3512-00, a Solar Panel Voltage Regulator – Model 5310-00, a Data Transceiver – Model 3701-00, and a Lightning Protection Device – Model 7200-00. The Environmental Monitoring Station Controller allows you to assign up to three inputs to each of four output channels to control the public warning system. The Data Transceiver is a VHF radio which provides the Environmental Monitoring Station Controller with outstanding resistance to signal interference caused by rain giving you more reliable performance during inclement weather events. The Solar Panel Voltage Regulator is intended for float charging lead acid batteries.

A typical application for the Environmental Monitoring Station Controller is as an Advance Warning System to advise motorists of a flooded or impaired roadway. While the Environmental Monitoring Station Controllers can be use independently they are often part of an integrated system consisting of the master monitoring station, a base station, and multiple warning sites. For example, with the flooded roadway a monitoring site with a water level sensor attached to the Environmental Monitoring Station Controller would be set up at the point where the road floods and two or more remote warning stations would be located at a point where vehicles could turn around or take an alternate route. Meanwhile the water level data from the Environmental Monitoring Station Controller and the information that the warning systems have triggered is sent to a base station monitored by an agency like the emergency management team or transportation department.

The Environmental Monitoring Station Controller can send timed reports, event generated reports, and command generated status reports. The Environmental Monitoring Station Controller reports can either pass through an optional repeater station or are received directly at the central site base station. Each Environmental Monitoring Station Controller can be used as a repeater for important last-mile connectivity. If you need the Environmental Monitoring Station Controller to be a repeater or have remote capability, the Flashing Beacon Controller with Maximum Power Point Tracking Load Control Charger is a good choice.
