Welcome to our latest newsletter.

Autumn Newsletter
Welcome to this new edition of the Camdata Newsletter.

We have been busy applying our electronic design and development skills to a number of exciting and challenging client projects. They include domestic fire suppression technology and an avalanche rescue system. Further details of these can be found below. We intend to cover similar application activities in future editions. Also featured is new product development, with the Microscribe 4000-WLAN detailed below. To learn more about how Camdata can help you please visit our improved website or contact us directly at .
Avalanche Beacon

Avalanche Rescue Beacon

Camdata were contracted to design a low cost beacon, which transmits on an international standard frequency if a skier is caught in an avalanche. Skills included understanding the market, low power RF electronics, packaging, water ingress and shock protection and assisting with volume manufacture. The product was then re-engineered for a different market.

recent projects page.
Automist - Fire Suppression

Domestic Fire Suppression

Plumis, having won the Dyson product of the year award, had entered the market with prototype electronics. Their Automist product provides a blanketing water mist which automatically triggers, and rapidly puts out home fires. Camdata was commissioned to redesign the microcomputer electronics and software during a 40% cost down exercise.
