A quick response can then be made to prevent any malfunction. Control systems consist of an event-recorder, a user configuration tool, a local diagnostic tool and a web server diagnostic tool. SURVAIG NG® and SURTRACK are developed on a common platform and are fully compatible.

- BTW « automatic Break Transmission in electrical Wire » is a real time remote monitoring system able to detect a cable cut (Download the brochure).
It allows:

       - To detect and localize in real time a cable cut with an accuracy of 50 meters

       - The doubt removing thanks to the redundancy of the system: each alert detected by a first sensor is confirmed immediately by the second

       - The  system sends an alarm in real time to the monitoring station on a dedicated Man Machine Interface

       - Information are transmitted to several stakeholders by E-mail or SMS

       - Finally, if a second cut occurs, the system will be able to give the length of stolen cable. The maintenance team will know at the same time the localization of the incident and the right quantity of cable they have to dispatch to repair.

The system is based on a patented technology used in the aircraft industry.
