Data loggers

The equipment comprises battery powered radio storage data loggers. These have been designed specifically for construction use and are thus robust and weather proof.

Gathering data over a radio network is considered to be better than using cable systems as these can be damaged on busy construction sites.

Information is stored on the data logging device, which means it can be downloaded and interrogated using a bi-directional wireless link.
