Feasibility of power management for an autonomous, in-field device

For a Global manufacturer of environmental sound and vibration monitoring equipment


  • Customer wanted to develop a new in-field device that could be left in remote locations to monitor sound pressure levels for longer, extended periods and collect more data.​
  • They had a concept in mind and engaged Consult Red to scope, design and develop their low-power solution and test that it could transmit the environmental sound data from a remote location, using just solar power to extend the in-field operation of the in-built Li-ion cells.

  • The resulting technology demonstrated the improved capabilities for environmental monitoring and provided a real-world understanding of power needs and recharging in a difficult climate such as the UK.
