What is MetStream?

MetStream Instructions

MetStream is an intelligent communications platform capable of linking, processing, bridging, storing and streaming data between devices. Users can network and sample from multiple devices at high speed, translating and managing data, outputting it to an html browser-based interface.

The Linux-based computer at the heart of MetStream is ultra-reliable and requires only a fraction of a standard computer system's power. Expandable memory means the MetStream Hub is also capable of storing processed data for extended periods, which can then be streamed via a direct connection, wirelessly or over the internet.

The MetStream Dashboard

MetStream Dashboard

MetStream uses a customisable browser-based interface to translate your devices' outputs into your language. The interface visualises live measurement data on your computer, tablet, or smartphone at work, at home or on the go.

Connect, Configure, Customise

MetStream Configuration

Simply link up any sensor to the MetStream Hub, connect to your device, fire up a web browser and log in to your MetStream dashboard.

From the dashboard you can configure your instruments to display the reading you want to see. Better still, Gill Instruments products sync with the dashboard using a straightforward "pick and click" interface.

You can easily customise your dashboard by switching between measurement units and dial types to display the data you want to see, as you want to see it.

Example 1 - Meteorological

MetStream can be linked to a weather station or wind sensor, converting data readings to an Ethernet format so that you can connect to an existing network router or switch. MetStream will then process and locally store the data, which can then be streamed and viewed in a web browser.

You can even upload your weather data to existing sites such as WOW or Weather Underground. Template designs, data ideas and feedback from user communities will allow users to share, support and improve the way we all view and interpret data.

Example 2 - Factory Safety Streaming

Need to remotely monitor security and safety features across several factory sites? MetStream can link several different security parameter sensors such as a webcam, electronic door locks and temperature monitors, processing and storing the data centrally. Using MetSteam's bridging feature to convert the sensor outputs and connect them to the security network, site staff can then view streamed data from each site on their Dashboard. Data can be easily customised to the format you want, including status indicators e.g. 'safe', 'warning' or 'check required'. MetStream Dashboards can even be streamed on the go to a smartphone, tablet, computer or other internet enabled device.

Example 3 - Event Based Farming

With MetStream it's now possible for farmers to process and store information on soil moisture, tank levels and weather conditions using the MetStream Hub. Based on in-tank sensor readings, farmers can use their smartphone to check if the milk collection vats are full and ready for pick up. Similarly, the amount of water piped to a field could be controlled remotely, based on soil moisture, water flow and weather measurement data streamed from MetStream. What's more, GPS monitors fitted to farm vehicles would allow farmers to see where the farming machinery was and calculate how much longer work would take, allowing work schedules to be adjusted on the fly!
