SlopeSense Gateway

SlopeSense Gateway

The SlopeSense gateway supports your remote sensor applications in virtually any environment, and is ideal for structural or geotechnical monitoring applications:

Typical applications include:

  • Strain in buried pipelines
  • Pore pressure in a tailings dam
  • Deformations of embankments and retaining walls
  • Landslide areas above dams, highways, and railroads to provide early warning of slope failure

Operation

The SlopeSense system consists of a number of remote data loggers reading vibrating wire sensors, connected to a central gateway via a LoRa® radio network. The data loggers transmit their readings to a centralized gateway, where the data is transmitted to an FTP server.

The SlopeSense gateway has a range up to 10 miles line-of-sight, or 2 to 3 miles with obstructions (e.g. within a structure) using the global sub-Ghz ISM radio bands in North America, Europe and the APAC regions.

The SlopeSense gateway is a highly scalable, rugged certified solution specifically designed for outdoor LoRa® network deployments and capable of resisting harsh environmental factors including; moisture, dust, wind, rain, snow and extreme heat.

The SlopeSense gateway is the industry’s most configurable, manageable and scalable LoRa® gateway system for geotechnical and structural applications.

The SlopeSense system is quick to deploy and data is easily accessible from all connected remote sensors.

 

Key Features:

  • Real Time Monitoring: Ideal for continuous, unattended monitoring, delivering readings in near-real time.
  • Network Connectivity: Choose your preferred data management platform and transfer data via approved 4G-LTE networks.
  • Flexible Configurations: Multiple options for antenna configurations, including a GPS antenna, two LoRa® radio antennas, and three cellular antennas.
  • Durable Components: Rated and resistant to most environmental factors. Intuitive design offers enhanced thermal performance and simple external port access to the SIM and USB connectors, allowing the user to leave the case sealed at all times.
