The GPRS-based uGalaxy data management system offers a way for customers to monitor remote meters, such as flowmeters, temperature sensors, pressure sensors, level sensors, BTU meters, etc., in real-time fashion automatically and reliably. In addition, using an optional web portal software, clients can loginto their own account through the Internet anytime and anywhere.
The major components of this system include:
The meter, which can be any of our products, has a built-in GPRS wireless modem. It automatically transmits flow data to the data center twice a day. The SIM card can be inserted into the modem, as long as your cell phone company provides GPRS data service for the SIM card.
This service, provided by your cell phone company, transmits data from the meter to the data center serveer wirelessly. Each meter/tank needs its own wireless service. You just need to insert the SIM card into the wireless modem of the meter.
The GPRS wireless network sends meter data to the data center server every few minutes. The server is a high-performance secured computer with UPS and backup protection, static IP address, gateway, and firewall protection. The uGalaxy Server software runs on this and automatically collects data from all the remote meters, saving the data into the SQL database.
This software communicates with the data center server through the Internet. It fetches data from the data center server, and the user can display the data through the graphic interface, save the data to the hard drive, print the data, etc.
The data collected by the data center server can be viewed from a website remotely. Each of the company's clients can log into his own account using a web browser and check the amount of water delivered to the account.
