GenII Radio Systems DATA LOGGERS The Eltek GenII series is a new range of telemetry products distributed by Grant Instruments that provide reliable radio data logging for a wide range of users and applications. Sensors can be located almost anywhere with reliable and secure collection data assured. Radio Telemetry offers a cost-effective, flexible and practical alternative to hard-wired data logging systems without forfeiting system reliability or security. The GenII telemetry system does not compromise on the range of sensor types that can be connected, measurement accuracy or metering capability. Consistent performance in a range of environments is ensured by using only the very highest quality licence exempt FM low power radio modules.

Eltek believes that all information declared is correct at the time of issue, no liability is accepted for errors and omissions. What is radio Telemetry? Simply the transfer of information using radio as the bearer. What are its advantages over wired or cabled-in systems? Wireless systems offer an almost unlimited freedom to site sensors. Information is collected by the sensors and periodically transmitted to the Receiver Logger for PC analysis or real time metering. Transmitting over the Licence-exempt Low Power Radio (LPR) spectrum means no annual licence fee, and the use of standard system modules allows rapid systems design, installation and expansion. Where is it currently used? The Eltek Radio Telemetry System is designed as a total system solution. Existing installations include environmental monitoring, the storage of sensitive chemicals and drugs and the monitoring of manufacturing processes. Customised thermal barriers are available for through-process measurement in extreme temperatures. Eltek Support Eltek's Technical help line is there to assist from project conception to completion. A three year warranty is standard.
