One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
An apparatus for recording the readings of an instrument and transmitting them by radio.
- ‘Radio signals from telemeters were detected by antennae surrounding each respirometer.’
- ‘The wax-coated telemeters were calibrated with a mercury thermometer over a range of 5-42 deg C.’
- ‘Signals were recorded on a computer via a telemeter.’
- ‘However, with the advent of miniaturized telemeters and thread-trailing methods, direct estimates of hatchling survival have been made.’
Transmit (readings) to a distant receiving set or station.
- ‘For example, in a 1,000-acre potato farm, aerospace behemoth Lockheed Martin can place meteorological stations that measure 13 different weather parameters every 15 minutes and telemeter the data to a computer base station.’
- ‘The telemetered technology will also benefit from integration with wireless-phone technology.’
- ‘Its power source comprised batteries only, so it was not expected to have great longevity; it telemetered scientific data for just five days.’
- ‘If two or more telemetered otters were detected at the same location, the pilot took care to determine the distance between them and attempted to obtain a visual observation.’
