Let the company with over 25 years of tower and site ownership, management, construction, and maintenance solve YOUR special problems.

About Remote monitoring services, Inc:

The primary objective of Remote Monitoring Services, Inc. is to assist the owner of a communications tower that requires lighting to fulfill the mandatory requirements that are set forth in Federal Communications Commission regulations 47CFR Part 17.47(a), 47 CFR Part 17.48, and 47 CFR Part 17,49:

  • Lighting requirements stated on the Aeronautical Study's **DETERMINATION OF NO HAZARD TO NAVIGATION** and defined in FAA Advisory Circular 70/7460-1K Change 1 will be monitored by the RMS panel.
     

  • Any failure of those lights will be reported to the responsible party designated by the tower owner.
     

  • Failure of lighting that is a hazard to air navigation must be reported to the FAA within the 30-minute time frame.
     

  • Raw data regarding each report received by the Central Station is archived for 12 months.

 

For those tower owners who do not require lighting, and those who own and manage remote sites, RMS can provide a First Alert when something goes wrong. Our simple, yet powerful, system can give you time to select a proper course of action to prevent the calls from those irate tenants whose equipment is not working from being made.

Tower Light Monitoring

A Commercial Power Failure extinguishes the tower lights in addition to removing power from the tenant's equipment and the Remote Monitoring Services Control Panel. The standby battery, however, provides power to the control panel for at least 48 hours to continue to report conditions at the site to the two Central Stations. Restoration of commercial power is reported and recharges the standby battery.

Strobe Conditions --- day, night, red, white, failures, and restorations --- are reported to the Central Stations as they occur.

Beacon Status --- on / off, flashing / steady --- are reported as they occur.

Marker Status --- failures and restorations --- are reported as they occur.

 

The reports received by the two Central Stations are routed to the RMS computer program where the reports are prioritized according to the severity of the incident. They are then displayed on the computer screens and activate an audible alarm.

Priority 1 incidents require NOTAMs within 30 minutes of occurrence and generate an immediate notification to the responsible party.

FAA / FCC Requirements

When the audible alarm generated by the RMS computer program sounds, the action begins.

The historical data in the Remote Monitoring Services database is examined in an effort to determine the circumstances surrounding the reported incident. The weather in the area of the tower is checked. Other tower sites in the vicinity are checked for report activity. The phone number for the appropriate FAA Flight Service Station is readied.

Just prior to expiration of the 30-minute notification period, the real-time incident report screen is checked again. If the incident has not cleared, the dial button is pressed.

The nature and exact location of the hazard to air navigation to the nearest airport is reported to the Automated Flight Service Station (AFSS). The NOTAM (Notice to Airmen) tracking number issued as a result of that report is sent to the tower owner to initiate the 15-day repair cycle.

RMS personnel review each NOTAM periodically and cancel or extend the NOTAM with the AFSS as necessary.

RMS strives to assist in fulfilling the tower owner's responsibilities in complying with FAA and FCC regulations.

We can also do FCC license and antenna structure database research at the tower owner's request.

standard Features

  • We feature fully redundant telephone services to enhance the reliability of incident reporting. All activities are logged at two centers in two different cities.

  • Each abnormal status change results in a responsible party notification.

  • Failure of the site to send a scheduled report creates an incident.

  • Standby batteries are exercised. A weak battery generates an incident.

  • Incidents are tracked until resolved. Responsible parties are kept informed of the status of the incident.

  • Raw data from the activity reporting is archived for 12 months.

  • We track the Ownership of our tower sites and report any irregularities

  • Access all your tower site(s) information via our secure web application.

Added Features

  • Auxiliary Power - In addition to the monitoring of the status of the diesel generator, wind turbines and solar panels can be monitored for operation.

  • Fuel Level - The fuel left in the diesel generator tank can be monitored to tell you how many more hours the generator will run before refueling is required.

  • Generator Status - Monitor loss of grid power, generator running, and transfer switch

  • Environmental - High and low temperatures of the building can be monitored to prevent damage from the failure of an air conditioner or a heating unit.

Customer testimonials

Eric Peterson 

MillerCo Inc. 

We recently did our first RMS 703C install. At first I was a little intimidated because it seemed like a lot of small details. I took the techsupport route to walk us through the install. Our support help came from Gil who was very patient at the very late hour in which the install took place. We made a couple of small mistakes but he never got half as frustrated as I did “LOL”. All in all, the install was a piece of cake. It was so easy that the next day we did another install perfectly without any tech support. We now have a better understanding of how the RMS monitoring works. I think this is a great way for tower companies to monitor their sites without having to provide employees, and a worksite for a N.O.C.

L & M Solutions

L & M Solutions has been working with RMS for a long time. We have installed many monitoring devices, and I can tell you "hands down" that the RMS monitor is the best. It is very easy to install, very durable and reliable, and provides a simple solution for those wishing to monitor their tower sites. It also gives the technician real time information that will help him troubleshoot a problem. The customer service received from RMS is always top notch as well. We always recommend RMS when we are asked about a monitoring company.

What products, along with battery testers, do you sell?

 

Our battery testers and analyzers include:

 

STC-4110 Dual Mode Battery Analyzer

The STC 4110 Dual Mode Battery Analyzer is a microprocessor-controlled, host powered instrument designed to test and evaluate the standby charged condition and dynamic capabilities under a load of any 6 or 12 volts, sealed, lead-acid battery with an amp hour range of 4 to 100 A.H. It will also perform a calculation of the remaining Amp-hour capacity.

For the pre-load static test, the Analyzer automatically determines the voltage of the battery. The Amp-hour rating is entered to set the parameters prior to the load testing. A voltmeter function may be used to check the charging circuit.

For the dynamic load test, a microprocessor-controlled load test sequence is initiated with the battery disconnected from the charging circuit. The load current is based on the entered amp-hour capacity. The battery condition is evaluated during the load test and is displayed on LED’s as: Good, marginal, bad

The 4110 will perform an additional test that determines the remaining capacity of the battery. This result can be compared to the minimum standby requirement to determine if the battery will meet the demands of an extended power failure. A math calculation routine is available in the 4110 to size batteries for various fire, UPS, and security systems.

STC-612 Battery Analyzer - Our BEST seller!

This battery analyzer performs automated dynamic load tests on standard lead-acid batteries commonly used in burglar alarm systems, fire alarm panels, and emergency lighting systems. This product is microprocessor controlled for accurate and repeatable results. Pre-load voltage and dynamic load tests are conducted for standard amp-hour rated batteries. To operate, simply connect the battery to the tester and select the correct amp-hour test. The STC-612 analyzer then displays the final battery condition - good, marginal, or bad. This unit tests 6 and 12-volt batteries. The tester is enclosed in a rugged die-cast aluminum enclosure with a strong polycarbonate graphic overlay. It is designed for field or bench use. Why wait for a low battery signal? Include battery testing with scheduled maintenance and improve system reliability.

 

Our environmental monitoring products include:

 

STC-704 Wireless Environmental Monitoring System

The STC-704 Wireless Environmental Monitoring System provides off-site monitoring of four parameters, plus A.C. power loss, daily communication test, low battery, and "restore to normal" conditions. Two web-controllable relays are included for interfacing to on-site equipment where a 5 amp dry contact can be used. LEDs display all power and input conditions.

The equipment is contained in a weatherproof ABS enclosure for outdoor or indoor mounting. There is a 3/4 and 1/2 inch conduit opening in the enclosure to permit wire entry. A 16VAC plug-in transformer to power the STC-704 and 7AH, 12-volt rechargeable battery is supplied for backup power, providing continuous operation during power failures up to 48 hours. An internal temperature compensated power supply keeps the standby battery at optimum charge with rapid, current limited, and voltage float charging. A low battery disconnect circuit removes the battery from the system on an extended power outage to avoid deep discharging of the battery.

All inputs are buffered through a selectable one minute or one-second delay to "Alarm" and one minute or one-second delay to "Normal". This eliminates the momentary signals generated by power fluctuations, rapid photocell operation, and switchover transients. Each input can be selected for N.C. or N.O. input for the "Normal" condition. Compression terminals are provided for all wiring. Any size wire, up to 12ga, may be used for the power and monitored device connections.
