SAT-CAM ™ – Compliance Assurance Monitoring

(Title 40 CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS Part 64)

SAT-MACT ™ – Maximum Achievable Control Technology

(Title 40 CODE OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS Part 63)

GENERAL APPLICATION DESCRIPTIONS

SAT-CAMTM and SAT-MACTTM are classified as Continuous Parameter Monitoring Systems (CPMS) uniquely designed for independent or integrated use through common data acquisition applications. Advanced wireless communication and electronic control technologies are utilized to monitor and report exhaust emission criteria for Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (RICE).

The systems incorporate a wide variety of features including communications disciplines and technologies such as…

  • Low Power Digital Signal Processing

  • Low Power Satellite Modem Transmission

  • The Internet

SAT-CAMTM and SAT-MACTTM are UL, CSA and NEMA Class 1, Group D, Division 1 and/or 2 compliant. Both read and transmit data at selected time intervals via proven low cost satellite, wireless and other high speed communication technologies and standards which are adaptable to various network protocols.

All input signals are derived from in situ sensors and processed by battery-powered electronics. Applications are completely independent of engine or emission control systems creating a truly discrete, stand alone emission verification product. A Global Positioning System (GPS) is included to acknowledge the emission source location.

The application software assures data integrity through multiple daily samples of input signals, transmitting and receiving confirmation techniques at all data communication stages and other innovative, high reliability, state-of-the-art design principles.

SUMMARY OF KEY FEATURES

  • Cutting-edge CPMS solutions in compliance with all applicable requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 40, Parts 63 and 64.

  • Complete functional independence of engine or emission control systems and devices provide absolute data integrity.

  • Self contained and independently powered by internal battery packs (low cost, application specific solar module available).

  • State of the art electronic data measurement and wireless communications technologies, design innovation and critical back-up systems assure maximum reliability, quality control and data availability.

  • Data is transmitted directly from emission source to the GlobalWavetm satellite network. The satellite transmits data messages to an earth ground station which are forwarded to high speed web servers that immediately display the data on the user’s own password protected web site.

  • For historical reference, the web servers store and maintain all monitored data 400 days for each emission source.

  • Hourly data reported on user’s web site represents an average of 4 readings taken at 15 minute intervals.

  • Standard data monitoring options provide 4, 8, 12 or 24 hourly reports per day. Averages for all data reported are calculated and displayed throughout and at the end of the day.

  • In addition to predetermined hourly reports, the bi-directional satellite network configuration allows the user to access data at any time via a simple web site command.

  • Provides seamless coverage for North and Central America. Works in remote locations where ground based cellular or other RF signals may not reach.

  • Unlimited user access available from any computer worldwide.

  • Integrated GPS for emission source site location as well as directions to the site.

  • Web site configured for programming user specific “customized” reports.

  • At the customer’s discretion, either application can be configured to monitor or report the minimum data mandated by the aforementioned Code of Federal Regulations.
