Datacast

This customizable kit includes a next-generation remote monitoring device that helps capture real-time events at the source, then broadcasts alerts and conditions via WiFi, ethernet, Bluetooth, or the integrated cellular modem.

The DataCast is a customizable solution that includes the QuarterMaster and a communication module of your choosing (Spearlink or Horizon). Your DataCast solution will be built inside a NEMA 4  enclosure, ensuring that it is resilient enough to withstand harsh environments and weather conditions.

DataCast transmits information to the base, providing accurate and timely insights about the status of remote equipment. Depending on the type of communication module you choose, your DataCast can use point-to-point communication or cellular communications, enabling you to have a consistent communication pathway that suits your unique needs. 

Email alerts can be sent directly to your field support staff to be able to handle issues quickly, reducing downtime and stopping issues before they become critical. DataCast can be integrated into your existing Modbus, capture sensors, level switches, and analog and digital signal inputs. The Interceptor team can customize DataCast solutions to provide dashboards for you and your customers, enabling all stakeholders to see historical data and field conditions—right at your fingertips.

This product, powered by the Interceptor, is perfectly positioned for remote, real-time monitoring of field equipment as well as oil wells, water wells, and gas wells, which typically sit miles away from an office or depot. Gain accurate and timely insights from anywhere in the world with the DataCast.
