The “SlimCom” data-transmission module is operated with 4 x 1.5 V alkali-manganese C cells; these are commercially available and easy to change. Depending on the confi gured measurement interval, operating times of several years are possible without a single battery change. Maximum operating reliability is achieved and guaranteed though the independent power supply for both the Dipper-PT and the SlimCom. The self contained design of the Dipper-PT and SlimCom prevents any loss of data, even if an unexpected power issue should occur. In oder to garantee undisrupted service the SlimCom automatically sends an SMS to any dedicated mobile phone if a critical lower battery-voltage limit is reached.
Furthermore, not only does the Dipper-PT and SlimCom system detect when alarm conditions have been breached, but it also reacts promptly to them by transmitting data at shorter intervals (dynamic
push). This ensures that you have always things under control. Especially when it really matters.
