The new mobile radio module, TC Mobile I/O X300 from Phoenix Contact, is the smallest Open Data Port (ODP) remote control station in the world.
Over the mobile communication network it securely and reliably monitors both analogue and digital signals from remote outstations. The relays can be controlled remotely.
The integrated calendar can be used to specify the switching times of the relays. The monitoring of systems with outstations is optimized by the mobile communications module communicating continuously as an ODP remote control station with an ODP server over the GPRS mobile communications service. This way, live and historical data and alarms - even with timestamps - can be transmitted over the Internet to a control centre. There, the measured values can be evaluated and stored.
All central and key functions are managed by the control centre. The ODP server provides open communication between the signalling system and the control centre. The mobile communications module therefore offers a simple and cost-effective alternative for monitoring and controlling processes.
