An example of how Sterling Communications can be used for telemetry is reservoir control systems. In this application, the reservoir is fitted with a float switch that opens when the reservoir is low on water supply and closes when the reservoir is full.
These switches are controlled through two-way radio communication, the transmitter at the reservoir and receiver at the pump station. Since there is no AC power at the reservoir, power is supplied from a battery and small solar panel. The radio will have minimal current drain, as it only transmits when either of the switches change state.
