Presentation of the Telegrafia company
Telegrafia a.s. is a manufacturer of warning, systems, including monitoring and notification, with their own development capacities. During its almost 30-year history, they have developed a fourth generation of warning systems and the leading product of the electronic siren Pavian, which has no competition in the world.
Monitoring, Warning and Notification System for dams, reservoirs, rivers, lakes, and mud pits
The EWS contains three essential elements. First of all, it is a quality monitoring system consisting of a group of various sensors (water level, pressure, flow sensors, weather stations, etc.), a monitoring station and a control centre, which measure, evaluate and display data, and detect a possible threat. Secondly, it is a multi-level notification of all first responders (rescue and evacuation teams, firefighters, police, local authorities, etc.) about the real situation and the imminent danger. Notification system must be fully automatic, fast, dependable, and flexible at the same time. Finally, yet importantly, it is a warning system equipped with sophisticated control software that can work both independently and automatically, based on the data collected from the monitoring system and mass warning devices. Electronic sirens ensure that a warning alert reaches all people located in the endangered area, even in case of a power outage or adverse weather conditions. The electronic sirens provide various communications options and have many advanced functions such as complete self-diagnostics, silent testing, remote recording, live-voice and text-to-speech functions, excellent intelligibility, and many others.
Block of Questions
A block of questions was the time when each participant could ask for additional information. All questions were collected and responded during the following week.
We would like to thank Enviroequip for the invitation and the possibility of presenting our work. Also, we are grateful for all participants for their keen interest. We look forward to further cooperation.
