Without earthing the tower is vulnerable to damage from electrical storms. Further, personnel are not able to work on the site until the earthing is restored because of the risk to life. The cost associated with aborted site visits is high.
The CuTS® ZM product is a patented product which monitors the inductance of the site and can alert on metal theft in near real time. It sends alerts by GSM/GPRS modem and / or Sigfox. Sigfox has the benefit that it is impossible to radio jam. Other sensors can be fitted into the module, for instance to measure temperate and alert if a fire breaks out.
The system is designed to be difficult to circumvent or disrupt without raising an alarm. Implementation costs are low both in terms of purchase costs and the supporting services.
Set up of the system for each application or installation is achieved through simple tuning and adjustment at installation via the CuTS® management interface. This management software provides manual tuning options, as well as enabling real time assessment of the monitoring of a site either locally or remotely.
