Trimble announces acquisition of Telog for wireless water infrastructure management
Trimble recently announced that it has acquired privately-held Telog Instruments Inc. The acquisition extends Trimble's smart water strategy by adding advanced water management technology and productivity solutions to the portfolio.
SUNNYVALE, CA, Nov. 11, 2015 -- Trimble, a company that applies technology to make field and mobile workers more productive, recently announced that it has acquired privately-held Telog Instruments Inc., a specialist in wireless water infrastructure monitoring and management solutions.
The acquisition extends Trimble's smart water strategy by adding advanced water management technology and productivity solutions to the portfolio. Telog manufactures a suite of wireless remote monitoring, analytics and data acquisition systems that are used by thousands of water, wastewater and stormwater management utilities and private contractors throughout North America.
Its family of battery-powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors provide an automated means of collecting, archiving, presenting, and sharing data from a wide variety of remote assets such as flowmeters, rain gauges, surcharge sensors, pre-treatment water quality sensors, lift stations, and pressure sensors.
Applications for Telog solutions include remote monitoring of flow rates, reservoir and tank levels, water quality, well and groundwater levels, pump station performance, hydrant and valve pressure, and sewer overflows.
The solutions can also be combined with automated metering infrastructure to provide smart water networks that improve sustainability and water conservation and reduce leakage and non-revenue water. Customers can benefit through improved drinking water quality, lower water loss and leakage, reduced wastewater and stormwater overflows and spills, and enhanced regulatory compliance.
"The acquisition of Telog enables us to expand our portfolio of hardware and software products with industry leading real-time wireless sensors and monitoring solutions," said Marcus McCarthy, general manager for Trimble's Water Division. "The management of data in real-time will provide value to customers facing a growing number of water supply, environmental and regulatory challenges."
Trimble applies technology to make field and mobile workers in businesses and government significantly more productive. Solutions are focused on applications requiring positioning or location -- including surveying, construction, agriculture, fleet and asset management, public safety and mapping. In addition to utilizing positioning technologies such as GPS, lasers and optics, Trimble solutions may include software content specific to the needs of the user. Wireless technologies are utilized to deliver the solution to the user in the field and to ensure communication between the field and the office. For more information, visit www.trimble.com.
