dipperLog SMART Detection

The dipperLog SMART is an independent, wireless, real-time data transfer system requiring no cell or Wi-Fi coverage. This turnkey system makes the data viewable on any computer, tablet or smart phone. The network allows you to deploy an unlimited amount of dipperLog SMART water detection sensors in any location and collate, view and record the remote data from anywhere. This system is totally scalable to perfectly adapt to YOUR project.

dipperLog SMART Detection sensors communicate over a cooperative mesh network within a 10km range. The sensor’s NODES will take turns and exchange data to the network coodinator (GATEWAY). Once the data has been received, the GATEWAY controls the network parameters such as data polling rate and hop counts, it will then send the data for remote viewing. Network communication is bidirectional, allowing users to manage the sensors data, control and activate/deactivate the sensors.



The water detection probes connected to the dipperLog SMART system, allows for communication to peripheral equipment such as pumps or alarm sirens, when used with the appropriate NODES.  After setting alarm limits on your water detection probes, the correct programming can enable the system to turn pumps and signals ON when hazardous conditions, such as water intrusion are met.  This can eliminate other early warning systems often required in underground working conditions where flooding is a potential risk.

There are 4 basic elements to this system:

  1. SENSOR –water detection probe connected via a downhole cable
  2. NODE – dedicated to each sensor
  3. GATEWAY – to collect the data
  4. TABLET – with “Sugarheld” software installed

Expand your system:

  1. REPEATER – relay for data transfer when NODES are outside transmission range
  2. SENSOR: water detection

The water detection probe is attached the NODE by a direct read cable allowing for easy data transfer from the NODE to the GATEWAY.

NODE:   Water Detection

The NODE, connected by a downhole cable, is dedicated to a single sensor and is responsible for collecting and forwarding data.

GATEWAY: data coordinator

This is the ultimate destination of the data flow. The GATEWAY is the network master or coordinator where pressure and temperature readings are gathered before being sent via Bluetooth to view on devices such as a tablet.  This GATEWAY is not internally powered it needs to be connected to a power source. There is a backup battery installed inside the unit, which will power the unit for approx. 5 days if there is a power outage.


The TABLET is provided with the “dipperLog SMART” software installed and configured for your network. All results of your sensors can be viewed on this TABLET simply by selecting which sensor data you wish to access.

If you wish to access your data from a remote location your TABLET will need to have access to either a Wi-Fi or cell connection to send the data to the cloud.

You can then log on the “dipperLog SMART” website, sign into your account, select desired sensors and then ”Details” from the dropdown box to view current conditions.

It can also be set up to notify you of any alarm conditions being met.

REPEATER: relay for data transfer

This member of the network acts as a relay for data transfer when adjacent NODES are outside transmission range.  This unit will forward any data received to surrounding NODES and REPEATERS in the system to complete the coverage area.

The NODE and REPEATER are designed to be weather proof with heavy duty casing and seals for outdoor deployment. Together they create the “spidermesh”, a stand-alone data transfer network whose size is defined only by the number of units deployed with an unlimited capacity.


Each dipperLog SMART system requires direct read cable, one – Water Level Meter Probe, NODE, GATEWAY and TABLET

The turnkey monitoring system is provided with both an Android App and a Web App to manage/control your system.
