Trimble announced it has acquired privately held Telog Instruments, Inc. based in Victor, New York. Telog is a leader in wireless water infrastructure monitoring and management solutions. The acquisition extends Trimble's smart water strategy by adding advanced water management technology and productivity solutions to the portfolio. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Telog, founded in 1984, manufactures a suite of wireless remote monitoring, analytics and data acquisition systems that are used by thousands of water, wastewater and stormwater management utilities and private contractors throughout North America. Its Telogers family of battery powered, environmentally rugged wireless monitors provide an automated means of collecting, archiving, presenting and sharing data from a wide variety of remote assets such as flowmeters, rain gauges, surcharge sensors, pre-treatment water quality sensors, lift stations and pressure sensors.

Applications for Telog solutions include remote monitoring of flow rates, reservoir and tank levels, water quality, well and groundwater levels, pump station performance, hydrant and valve pressure and sewer overflows. The solutions can also be combined with automated metering infrastructure to provide smart water networks that improve sustainability and water conservation and reduce leakage and non-revenue water.

Customers can benefit through improved drinking water quality, lower water loss and leakage, reduced wastewater and stormwater overflows and spills, and enhanced regulatory compliance.

"Trimble remains focused on offering industry leading technology solutions for the water industry," said Marcus McCarthy, general manager for Trimble's Water Division.

"The acquisition of Telog enables us to expand our portfolio of hardware and software products with industry leading real-time wireless sensors and monitoring solutions. The management of data in real time will provide value to customers facing a growing number of water supply, environmental and regulatory challenges."

"We are very excited to join Trimble. In addition to the continued focus on supporting our current customers and our core North American market, the acquisition will enable us to grow Telog's suite of products and expand our global footprint," said Barry Ceci, founder, president and CEO of Telog. "This is an exciting time for Telog and our customers, who can also benefit from Trimble's comprehensive portfolio of smart water management solutions."
