PLCs / RTUs - SCADAPack 50 Wireless Data Logger for Remote Process Monitoring
The SCADAPack 50 (SP50) data logger is a compact autonomous device that monitors analog, discreet, or Modbus inputs. Powered by internal batteries, the SP50 can offer up to five years of autonomy. The field units are IP68 rated for use in applications where environmental protection is required.
SP50 data loggers are used in a wide variety of applications including water infrastructure monitoring, gas distribution systems, bulk storage level monitoring, and more.
In a typical installation, data is logged periodically, stored in the unit and then transmitted to the host once per day as an example. The user can choose the desired sampling and transmission rates. The files are sent over a GSM network as binary data files using the SMS PDU format.
On the receiving end any GSM modem capable of using Hayes commands can be used. Both 2G and 3G options exist for network connectivity. For large systems (many hundreds of data loggers) direct connection to the local operator's SMS server over a WAN connection can be considered.
From a host perspective, SP50 networks are directly compatible with Schneider Electric's StruxureWare™ SCADAExpert ClearSCADA with its embedded drivers and easy to use interface. SCADAExpert ClearSCADA can also be used as a gateway into any third party host.
