ByteSnap at Railtex 2017- Day 1

2018-10-09T11:31:30+00:00

The UK's biggest rail show, Railtex 2017, has opened its doors to the public  - and ByteSnap's consultants were in the thick of it! Railtex is an international showcase for the latest trends and technology in the rail industry.  One of the main themes in the lecture theatre at the exhibition is remote condition monitoring - which directly ties in with one of our demonstrations! Our remote monitoring model with movement sensor shows how the technology can help automate and log remote events at sites. This can be used to get accurate information about events that take place for evaluating damage caused by vehicles striking bridges, failure of line equipment, land slippage and many other areas of concern that can be hard to monitor due to their [...]

Innovative Remote Monitoring System at Railtex 2015

2015-10-27T09:51:01+00:00

Low Power Remote Monitoring System features among key themes at Railtex 2015 ByteSnap's debut at the UK's biggest rail show is underway at the NEC.  (Come and see us at stand V90!) Our remote monitoring system and data logger attracted  interest from visitors - as remote monitoring and asset management are of critical importance to the rail industry. With a huge, intricate asset portfolio, Network Rail says one of its main tasks is to continually maintain and refurbish it effectively, and be aware of any rapid wear and tear as early as possible. Remote monitoring systems help Network Rail address major infrastructure challenges, including: - Condition monitoring of buildings and assets - Bridge strike reduction - Remote monitoring of electrical and signalling assets - Remote condition monitoring of track [...]

ByteSnap’s Custom Electronic Design Team at Railtex 2015

2018-10-17T21:19:03+00:00

ByteSnap will unveil a high reliability, low power remedy to the rail industry’s remote monitoring headache at Railtex 2015 in May. Custom Electronic Design The demonstration consists of two units; a remote monitoring station and a rugged waterproof data logger.  The solar-powered station transmits weather data via a 10 kilometre low-power radio link.  The practical applications for and benefits to rail infrastructure maintenance are substantial. Low Power Monitoring Director Dunstan Power said, “We see that low power monitoring equipment, which can be installed in remote locations transmitting information in real time over long distances, is vital to addressing reliability requirements of the rail industry. "We design bespoke solutions for customers; this is just an example of our expertise in rugged, very low power designs that can be adapted for [...]

The ByteSnap Design team would like to thank all delegates who visited our stand at National Electronics Week 2012 - who also got to witness a UK-first at the trade show. ByteSnap Design demonstrated the first-ever ZigBee Smart Energy module to combine metering and control in a single, low power platform. The Smart Energy module - the ZMM-01 - helps accelerate time to market thanks to three key features: lower power, faster deployment and trouble-free compliance with wireless standards. The module is suited to distributed control and monitoring systems, such as electric vehicle charging, street lighting control and HVAC control. The module was on show at National Electronics Week measuring power consumption and controlling the micro-Scalextric bicycles via a ZigBee Pro wireless network. A user interface - generated by our own [...]
