SMS/GPRS/e-mail module for remote monitoring, alarm and control applications.
Telemetry module MT-020, thanks to its very attractive cost to feature ratio, is well suited for use in small sites remote monitoring systems. It allows monitoring, diagnosis and control of remote devices via text messages (SMS and e-mail), CLIP calls and using data packet transmission of GPRS network. Configurable text messages with a fixed or variable content (e.g. containing current measurement value) are convenient way to provide information to the monitoring center or directly to the defined staff phone numbers. Alarm messages can be generated on binary inputs and binary outputs state change, when measured analog values crosses alarm threshold, by timer and counter flags.
Communication via GPRS enables secure and reliable communication with higher-order applications (SCADA, database) allowing to expand the capabilities of the monitoring system using remote communication with difficult to access or distant sites.
Industrial design, practical I/O resources and easy-touse software tools as well as the possibility of remote management of module via SMS commands or GPRS are the biggest advantages of MT-020. Direct connection of temperature sensors lowers the cost of building system. 1-Wire inputs can be used for reading typical Dallas pellets for the purpose of identification and authentication. The module can work with humidity sensors, water level sensors, pressure transducers, flow sensors, smoke, gas, motion, shock and noise detectors, etc.
Telemetry GSM/GPRS/EDGE module
MT-331 Telemetry module (replaced the whole MT-30X series of economical family modules) is a modern unit equipped in quad band modem uBlox SARA-U201. MT-331 is keeping aluminum housing and attractive price of economical family and offer resources and possibilities that are available in advanced telemetry devices. Configurable modes of inputs/outputs allow to prepare resources for the specific needs of application. Except 2 dedicated binary inputs user can configured additional 4 inputs (also as counter mode) and additional 2 binary inputs (instead of analogue). In control applications that required outputs user can configured 4 channels. Measure functions can be realized by 2 configurable analogue inputs, mode 4–20mA or 0–10V. Built-in Li-ion battery keeps power on in case of lost the main powers supply. Supply output provide a stabilized voltage for external circuits and measurement sensors, also in energy saving mode.
MT-331 Telemetry module is a green line, energy efficient module compatible with renewable energy sources. Energy saving mode supported with internal built-in LI-ion battery allows to connect external battery’s as main supply. Device can be also supply directly from solar panels. In energy saving mode the module “goes to sleep” (as in batteries family modules MT-7xx) and wakes up according to configured schedule or occurrence of some events.
Except standard SIM cards (Subscriber Identification Module) the MT-331 used built-in MIM card (Machine Identification Module) which is soldered in packaging mount process of electronics.
Depending from preferences user can use:
a. Only MIM card, without SIM
b. Only SIM card, without MIM activation
c. SIM and MIM card (mobile network redundancy).
Module is equipped with flash memory reserved for capacity of 28000 records data logger with maximal resolution of 1 sec. When actual value of register will be saved with 5 minutes period, the logger can stored measured data of 96 days. With MT-331 module we supplied free of charge applications: MT-Manager and MTC for remote and local configuration, resources monitoring and firmware actualization, MT-Data Provider (OPC server, relation data base data saving engine) for communications environment for Microsoft Windows. These applications allow easy integration with available on the market popular SCADA systems. Similarly to previous MT-30x family the MT-331 is equipped with stylish aluminum housing with DIN rail connectors. Though the MT-331 is derived from economical Inventia modules series it has got 3 years warranty, like in professional series, and we are sure it will be useful in many professional applications.
