Each sensor port can support additional sensors using cable splitters, with one Wavelet device supporting up to 10 sensors.

How frequently do the sensors need to be calibrated
Sensor drift occurs over time with all sensors.

Recommended calibration frequency varies based on the sensor and application. Typically, sensors should be calibrated once per year.

Sensor calibration can be performed during routine maintenance. Ayyeka provides a user-friendly solution to account for sensor drift by modifying the transformation equation that converts raw values from sensor measurements to final values in engineering units.



How do I know the battery needs to be replaced? How long does the battery last?
Battery level notifications can be set in the user interface.

The battery can last from a few weeks up to several years, depending on the number of sensors, and the configuration of the sampling and transmission intervals set.

The military-grade lithium battery packs utilized in Wavelet devices provide for extra, extra long battery life, allowing for autonomous field operation, less frequent trips to the field by operators, and act as a redundant power source in the event that the system is hooked up to solar or permanent power as the primary power source.

Can I use external power instead of a battery

The Wavelet device can be powered by a fixed power supply or solar panel.

Each Wavelet device is supplied with an external power connector for this purpose.

What happens if the power goes out?
The Wavelet can be configured with an SD card supporting up 8 GB of data (can be expanded).

Data is stored in the Wavelet device in non-volatile memory, so that data is not lost in the event that the battery is spent and an external power source goes out.

For installations using an external power source, the internal battery provides backup power if the external power supply fails.

Data & Software

How much data can the Wavelet store
Internal storage on the Wavelet device holds up to 4 gigabytes (GB). set.
How does the Wavelet integrate into a SCADA system? Does it need to go to the Ayyeka cloud first?
Ayyeka’s Wavelet Kits collect and transmit data to cloud storage or an on-premises server.

Using the drivers, code, and API developed by Ayyeka’s engineers, the data is seamlessly and securely integrated to populate SCADA databases.

Ayyeka supports the OPC, DNP3, and proprietary communication protocols.

What kind of data can i export and what format is used to export data?
Ayyeka’s user interface can generate the following pre-defined reports: stream history (all measurements for a user-defined data range), aggegation reports (sum, average, min/max, standard deviation for user-defined data range and aggregation interval), and flow reports (sum of daily sums for user-defined data range).

Ayyeka also offers options for custom reports.

Reports are generated as CSV (comma separated values) files.

How do I change the data transmission interval?
Navigate to the Devices tab and click on the correct Wavelet device.

In the Configuration tab, there are 3 Reporting Interval options: Type (0), Type (1), Type (2). Type (0) is the default reporting interval. Type (1) and Type (2) are optional alternate configurations that are used when configuring alarms.
