Dataloggers, telemetry systems and software with the most flexibility

Advances in environmental monitoring and IT have made a wider array of sensors available to fulfil specific purposes. However, complications arise from using devices by various manufacturers. In addition, more remote monitoring data transfer protocols exist than ever.

We’re dedicated to overcoming obstacles to data collection, access, and usability, KISTERS keeps your data flowing.

Our compact, reliable and multifunctional dataloggers transmit data via cellular, Internet, LoRaWAN, radio or satellite technologies. The low-power, rugged workhorses collect, process and store data. Multiple telemetry slots design enable communication redundancy. Learn more about our data acquisition hardware. 

In addition, our software products harmonize many remote monitoring data transfer protocols and processes required by the wide array of monitoring devices by various manufacturers.

    Compatible with nearly every sensor and transfer protocol

    With more than 60 years in environmental data management, we have developed IT solutions with multiple communication channels to unify control over your remote monitoring network.

    The Simultaneous Online Data Acquisition (SODA) platform is ideal for consolidating data from multiple data loggers by different manufacturers. Communicate with data collection units via diverse paths such as phone, ISDN, GSM, UMTS, GPRS, Internet, radio and satellite. Users control settings for transfer directions and transfer protocols such as IP-telemetry, remote call, file transfer, web services and more.

    The KISTERS Data Acquisition Tool (KiDAT)software utility automates many data acquisition and preprocessing tasks. It enables users to schedule routine data collection and then applications run in the background or continuously, freeing up time and attention.

    • The utility performs web scraping to gather information from websites without available APIs — giving you choices to import, convert, or retrieve files from public websites. Users commonly use this tool to get stream flow data published by USGS or meteorological data by NOAA, and specify how often information from that source is integrated with their KISTERS data management system.
    • The same utility also automates file conversion, for example files with any specified delimiter can be converted to the .zrxp format. Alternatively, exchange numbers can be created from the data file name and/or any number of delimited blocks within the data file in order to serve as navigation identifiers.

    KiDAT settings give users options to specify an application on the local computer performing this service, processes that should be applied to the application, which user account to initiate the application, and how often the application should be executed.

  • Intuitive sensor monitoring & alarm settings

    Intuitive sensor monitoring & alarm settings

    Easily create and manage monitoring stations, loggers, test jobs and data acquisition jobs.

    Deploy push applications using data transfer protocols.

    Opt to fall back into pull operations if push operations fail.

    In addition, easily define and monitoring thresholds for individual sensors or groups of devices.

    Manage alarm recipients, so appropriate persons or teams on duty are aware and have maximum time to respond.

    Retrieve statistics on alerts & notification logs to identify and investigate trends.

  • Standard exports formats and methods

    Standard exports formats and methods

    Collected raw data can be exported in different file formats using different distribution methods and specified target systems.

    All basic data pertaining to acquisition links and target systems are stored.
