NHDS Bespoke Design

Since its inception, NHDS has been involved in designing and supplying remote monitoring and alarm monitoring products for the worldwide Electricity Transmission and Distribution industry, working in partnership with customers to provide full system solutions and promote the improved performance demanded by the industry regulators.
NHDS Coste Effectiveness
Other industrial and commercial market sectors such as agriculture,  environment, transport and manufacturing are now benefiting from this technology. Products such as the Messenger range have been developed on a platform that can be quickly and cost effectively adapted to meet market and client specific requirements. Solutions such as Waste Watcher and Agri-Trak are typical examples where deployment of the technology can offer impressive operational benefits and reduce costs, providing real financial rewards and rapid return on investment.

Consultative Approach
NHDS work closely with clients to ensure that the solution provided meets all the "must haves" and where possible also encompasses the "nice to haves". If we don't believe a solution is technically or financially viable we say so. We believe this is the main reason that our customers place repeat business with us.
Specialist Skills
Our experienced design team have created a range of rugged industrial remote control and data acquisition products for telemetry and SCADA applications, which are used extensively by major utilities companies. These products are designed for unmanned and/ or remote locations and are manufactured on site at our facility in the East Midlands in the UK.
