Remote monitoring and data transmission is an important area for applications especially in machine and plant engineering. Message or Expert Transient devices are typically used in this sector due to their ability for independent data acquisition, recording, processing and monitoring. A UMTS module enables the devices to be accessed via a secure VPN tunnel making them independent of customer networks. The devices can be remotely configured, their data accessed, or automatically transmitted using a scheduler or FTP. If an alarm or failure occurs, the devices are capable of sending emails or text messages. The ProfiSignal software is network compatible to minimize configuration effort.
- Full functionality via UMTS/LTE remote access
- Online access to all measurement data and status information
- Online alarm and fault notifi cation via email and text messaging
- Automated offl ine data transmission at preset intervals via a scheduler
- Condition monitoring, fault analysis and factory data acquisition in a single system
LogMessage devices are being used in power plants to decentrally acquire and monitor fill-levels in tank facilities, flow rates, and consumption and operational data. The user accesses all important data on site using a system generated by ProfiSignal Klicks. Each device is equipped with a UMTS router for remote data transmission and remote monitoring, and for transferring data to a control centre. Operators in the control centre are then able to access operational data for each power plant. The application was generated with ProfiSignal Klicks and enables automated reporting of daily/weekly/monthly consumption data.
