VuLink Remote Telemetry Monitoring

Vulink is a global cellular telemetry device that will change the way you think about remote monitoring. Our turnkey solution is easy to set up, works from anywhere and delivers long-lasting power. So, you never have to worry about your equipment or your data.

VuLink is part of the most complete monitoring solution available. Instrumentation, telemetry and software work together within In-Situ's shared ecosystem to make it easier than ever to collect, access and manage your data.

ONE-PRESS SETUP

• VuLink autodetects any In-Situ device with one button press or scheduled report. Icons indicate battery life, instrument connection, network connection and HydroVu connection.

EXPANDED COVERAGE

• VuLink is truly global, offering cellular coverage across multiple networks. Future proof your system for decades with 4G LTE Category M1/NB-IoT technology, while ensuring backwards compatibility with quad-band 2G coverage.

• VuLink is also the first in-well Iridium satellite device featuring customized data compression and low power usage to lengthen battery replacement cycles.

FREE GLOBAL CELLULAR DATA

• VuLink offers free cellular data for life, right out of the box, no set up required. See back for details.

EXTENDED LIFE

• VuLink offers two-to-five times the battery life of similar devices. M1 and NB-IoT offer extraordinary power savings. And at faster reporting rates, VuLink offers exponential savings – more than two years of battery life at 15-minute reporting intervals.

• Say good-bye to custom, expensive batteries – VuLink uses off-the-shelf alkaline and lithium D cell batteries.

Applications

• CONTINUOUS GROUNDWATER MONITORING

• REMOTE SURFACE WATER MONITORING

• RIVER GAUGING

• SALT WATER INTRUSION MONITORING

• STORMWATER MONITORING

• REMEDIATION

• WASTE MANAGEMENT

• IRRIGATION

• MINING WATER MANAGEMENT

• INDUSTRIAL AND MUNICIPAL

Continuous GPS 

HydroVu uses VuLink’s GPS to automatically locate and mark devices on maps, syncing devices and locations, increasing data quality, and making it easier to track free-floating buoys.

Encrypted Connections 

VuLink with HydroVu offers SSL encryption of your data, and VuLink can password protect all local connections to prevent backdoor access.

Free Global Cellular Data 

VuLink and HydroVu offer free data up to 1 transmission for 24 data points per day. Additional plans can be purchased at Hydrovu.com. No more worrying about provisioning SIM cards and checking multiple systems for data usage. VuLink works with all LTE networks that support LTE-M1/NB-IoT. For a complete list visit in-situ.com/VuLinkNetworks.

Expanded Connectivity 

VuLink also can read high frequency and low frequency pulse inputs, configured in VuSitu. And the device’s new Load-Bearing Universal Adapter can connect to anything.
