GeoNet 8800 Series Mesh Loggers | 8800 Series + Data Hosting System

  • The Model 8800 Series includes the Mesh VW Logger, Mesh Addressable Logger, Mesh Tilt Logger and Local Gateway (top, left to right), the 4- and 8- channel Mesh VW Loggers and the Cellular Gateway (bottom, left to right).
  • The Model 8800 Cellular Gateway (left) is used to control the network, collect all sensor data from any loggers deployed and seamlessly connect to the cloud server and hosted data platform. The Model 8800 Local Gateway (right) provides the same network capabilities, but without cloud integration for secure, localized access to your sensor data.
  • The 8800 Series Single-Channel Mesh VW Logger (left), and the 4- and 8-channel Mesh VW Loggers (right), which expand the capacity at each node, allowing clusters of closely spaced sensors (up to 4 or 8 vibrating wire sensors respectively).
  • The self-contained Mesh Tilt Logger (left) and the Mesh Addressable Logger, used to connect GEOKON addressable sensor strings and addressable thermistor strings.
  • Typical GeoNet network, with line-of-site obstructions.

8800 Series + Data Hosting System

The GeoNet 8800 Series is a low-power, wireless data acquisition system and hosted data platform. The integrated system affords the efficient collection of sensor data from many points and provides secure access to sensor data via the Internet and GEOKON OpenAPI. The system is especially useful in geographically complex locations where a wired infrastructure would be costly, or impossible, to install and difficult to maintain.

The 8800 Series comprises single- and multichannel Mesh VW Loggers and Mesh Addressable Loggers to read all GEOKON vibrating wire and addressable sensors, respectively. Self-contained Mesh Tilt Loggers are also available, for attachment to structures, to wirelessly measure any tilting that may occur. The multichannel Mesh VW Loggers expand the capacity at each logger, allowing clusters of closely spaced sensors or vibrating wire load cells, multipoint borehole extensometers or multilevel piezometers to be added to the system. The system is compatible with all GEOKON Vibrating Wire instruments, addressable¹ sensor strings and addressable thermistor strings.

A Cellular Gateway controls the network, collects all sensor data from any loggers deployed and provides seamless and secure cloud integration, which is achieved via GEOKON OpenAPI. GEOKON Agent software or optional third party software² may be used for secure data access and visualization via the Internet. A Local Gateway, without cellular capabilities or cloud integration, provides the same control over the network to allow secure, localized access to your sensor data. The network is self-healing and will reconfigure itself, if possible, to tolerate disturbances to the physical environment. This topology is more flexible than star networks, in that communication can be established around obstructions. Up to 12 networks can coexist by setting each to a different operating frequency (channel).

¹Addressable MEMS, VW and Thermistor strings.
²Third party OpenAPI software options available soon.
