What is Telemetry System?
The word Telemetry is derived from Greek words where Tele & Meter means “remote” & “measure” respectively. A telemetry system is equipment that helps to collect the data from a Sensor or other methods and send that data to Servers.
Telemetry Systems are mostly wireless systems as they are installed in remote places where it’s hard to collect the data.
It can also be understood as a hardware system that is connected with Sensors ( Digital / Analog) along with a data transmission Unit. A telemetry system usually throws the data to servers so, there must be a Software system that represents that whole data to a user or others.
TYPES OF TELEMETRY SYSTEM
This is the general Diagram for understanding the System. The Block Diagram consists of three sections:
- Telemetry Link.
- Receiving Station.
Transmitting: It consists of all the Input Units which comprises Sensors (Flow Meter, Level Sensors, Proximity Sensors, etc), Transducers.
Telemetry Link: All the data received might be in the form of Pulse, Current, or Voltage process in this stage. We can understand this as a converter reason where signal converts into the Machine Code.
The converted signal is then sent to the dedicated location by the mean of Wire(Landline Based) or Wireless Systems(Radio Frequency Based).
Receiving Station: This is the receiving end where all the data gets received and processed. In this region, the user can check the data.
