  • MAINSTREAM LAUNCHES MODBUS ADAPTER
    18 February 2020

    MAINSTREAM LAUNCHES MODBUS ADAPTER

    The Modbus Adapter is a device that is external to the Mainstream and works by connecting to the Mainstream communications port, allowing the customer to read measurement data using the Modbus RTU protocol. The Adapter can operate using Modbus RTU over RS232 or RS485 (half and full duplex), it can accept external power supplies and is currently available for use with fixed units. Many popular products such as telemetry units and dataloggers incorporate Modbus communications. Many of these devices are already embedded throughout the water industry infrastructure, the Modbus Adapter bridges the gap between the Mainstream and these devices. The Mainstream Modbus Adapter makes the reliability, accuracy and affordability of the Mainstream, available to anyone who already has this technology in place or is looking to upgrade their communications capabilities.

  • Remote data collection project to open new doors for flowmeter firm
    12 April 2018

    Remote data collection project to open new doors for flowmeter firm

    Mainstream Measurements Ltd has formed a £120,000 Knowledge Transfer Partnership
    (KTP) with the University of Huddersfield to develop software and communication
    mechanisms that will allow the meters to be read remotely, as well as integrate into
    standardised industrial control systems, such as MODBUS.

    The breakthrough will be a massive advantage for companies involved in applications such as effluent monitoring, water distribution, industrial flow and water distribution, who need to monitor flow in order to deal with issues such as blockages and flood risks.

    The challenge of the KTP is that there is no dominating data communication protocol in the
    Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, and this is particularly true within the water industry, using a cellular infrastructure would be costly and consume too much power, which is highly detrimental to devices running on battery power in remote areas.

    The LoRaWAN communication protocol could be the answer, and this is being investigated
    by the KTP. It is also expected that the KTP will help Mainstream boost its R&D capacity and add software engineering to its range of expertise.
