T&D RTR-500GSM Wireless Base Station Now with Increased Compatibility
CHESTERLAND OH-March 6, 2012
CAS DataLoggers together with bestselling manufacturer T&D is announcing might release of fresh firmware update for your RTR-500GSM Wireless Data Logger Cellular Base Station later this month that adds compatibility with T&D's RTR-505TC and RTR-505Pt temperature data loggers. This mobile base station utilizes a GSM cellular modem to send SMS messaging and warning report mails, guaranteeing that owners always stay on the surface of sudden changes of critical measurement documents. The RTR-500GSM serves as a Base Unit for T&D's versatile RTR-500 Wireless Data Logger Series, and when in communication range for GSM cellular phone service, it may be placed for transmitting data and warnings--perfect for tracking data when it's in transport, whether in the mountains, on the sea or in additional remote locations.
T&D offers compact, rugged dataloggers for temperature, humidity, and voltage/current available in wireless, USB and Ethernet models. With the RTR-500GSM Cellular Base Station equipped with GSM cellular phone network capabilities, T&D's flexible 500 regarding low-cost monitoring solutions can automatically send data and alarms via cellular phone networks for remote or in-vehicle data collection. Using the built-in wireless communication capability, the RTR-500GSM can also periodically and automatically download the data coming from all of its remote units so that users can process and manage their data anytime everywhere. These rugged systems consist of web data collectors and data loggers for use in diverse applications including industrial, environmental, and life sciences, as well as transportation and warehousing, food processing and storage, and in agriculture.
The base station's wireless communication range, when unobstructed and direct, ranges out to about 500 feet (150 meters). Downloading recorded data from full (16,000 readings) Remote Unit into the Base Unit takes only about two minutes. It's in order to understand expand the wireless communication range-just place a Repeater one of the RTR-500GSM and Remote Units. When using Repeaters and downloading data, the equivalent amount of time noted above is necessary every Repeater. When a measurement exceeds an upper or lower limit and has been judged by the RTR-500GSM to qualify as a warning, advice report can be immediately sent via email or SMS to specified e-mail address. Moreover, by connecting a siren or lamp to the external contact output connector when a huge warning occurs, people at the reason for measurement can quickly take any necessary action. Recorded data and current readings can be automatically downloaded from Remote Unit(s) at a designated interval and that data can then be sent by e-mail or FTP to a designated address.
The RTR-505 series dataloggers adds support for additional thermocouple and RTD sensor types as well as voltage and 4-20mA and pulse signals, increasing the wireless base unit's functionality across a broad range of treatments. All RTR-500GSM units shipped after March will create the new firmware pre-installed. T&D will additionally be releasing a firmware update for units already in the area. Additionally, T&D also intentions to introduce a new edition of the 500GSM datalogger in the autumn that will be compatible with the RTR-574 Illuminance/UV/Temperature/Humidity data logger as well as the RTR-505V Voltage logger, 505MA, and 505-P Wireless Pulse Datalogger models, expanding its already impressive utility far more.
