We need machine and plant data for better performance, quality control and analysis. At local level we can install data loggers and machine parameters can be collected by putting various sensors with machines. Once installed, the data is regularly collected and stored in data loggers. The engineer-in-charge concerned will download this data for further action. But if we want to keep a continuous watch of machine from a central control room then instead of installing simple data logger we install RF/GSM/GPRS based wireless data loggters. These RF/GSM/GPRS wireless data loggers come well equipped with wireless data transmission system system. This wireless data transmission system is fitted with a RF module or GSM/GPRS module as per site requirements.
To over come above problems, we have a very economical solution. This system is a wireless data logger and is based upon GPRS/GSM mode of data communication or we can call it a GSM/GPRS wireless data logger/RTU. In a GSM/GPRS wireless data logger, a GSM/GPRS module is fitted inside the data logger. We need to insert a GPRS enabled SIM in the wireless data logger to make it transmit data to a remote central server/GPRS/GSM device. This GPRS/GSM based wireless data logger/RTU will transmit data through TCP/IP protocols and the remote location must have a system to receive this data through TCP/IP communication. A hardware and a software application is required to receive data in this case. The hardware may be a PC with interenet connectivity having a static IP or a GSM/GPRS enabled device with a SIM having static IP. This way we can communicate data between two remotely installed devices through wireless GSM/GPRS based data loggers.
When we have to transmit data within a small area/factory where line of sight is clear between two points where data is being transmitted and received, we can go for installing RF based wireless data loggers/RTUs. So the sensor will pick up the data from the machine by making a physical contact with the machine, pass on the signals to the RF based wireless data logger through hardwire and in turn this RF based wireless data logger will transmit the data through radio frequency waves to receiving station installed within the same premises. At this receiving station the data can be viewed in a SCADA system installed on the a PC placed in the control station. So we can use a RF based wireless data logger/RTU for short distance data transmission, preferably with a factory spread in a small area.
Let us now consider a case where data is to be monitored from a remote central control room, a few hundred or say thousand kilometers away from the factory. We can think of a long range & high power RF based wireless data logger again. But this RF wireless data logger would be too costly and secondly, if there is any obstacle in between two transmitting and receiving points, then link would be broken and no data would be captured at the receiving end. So in case of RF based wireless data transmission the line of sight must be clear.
But what is we want to retrieve data in a central control room from several remotely installed machines. The answer would be same - a wireless GSM/GPRS data logger/RTU but with a central server and front end web based application.
We have three components in this case:
- A GSM/GPRS wireless data logger: This GSM/GPRS wireless data logger will get the data from the remotely installed machine through a sensor, a temperature sensor, a humidity sensor, a pressure sensor, a flow sensor or a level sensor
- A Server Application Installed on a PC installed in the central control room: The PC would be connected to internel with a static IP. A server appication is installed on the PC to receive data from several GSM/GPRS wireless data loggers/RTUs
- A Web Based Monitoring Interface: This interface receives data from the central server. You can select a GSM/GPRS wireless data logger/RTU on this screen.You can view live data in real time of selected GSM/GPRS wireless data logger.
We have varios models of GSM/GPRS wireless data logger to meet your anytype wireless data monitoring requirements. You can use GSM/GPRS wireless data logger/RTUs for online temperature monitoring, online humidity monitoring, online pressure monitoring, water flow monitoring, level monitoring, dg set electrical parameters monitoring. Not only monitoring but by installing GSM/GPRS wireless data logger/RTUs we can also do the switching operations from the centarl control room. This way we can control our street light from a central location, operate water pumps from the SCADA, can do remote energy management.
Working of GSM/GPRS wireless data logger: In a GSM/GPRS wireless data logger, data travels from machine to sensor, from sensor to GSM/GPRS wireless data logger, from GSM/GPRS wireless data logger to modem, from modem to network tower os service provider. At central control room this data travels into a internet connected PC in which a SCADA software application is installed. Through this SCADA application only the PC communicates with the GSM/GPRS wireless data logger. GSM/GPRS wireless data logger works both way. It can send data to a central server with static IP and transmits back instructions as entered/sent from SCADA.
Applications: A GSM/GPRS wireless data logger can be used for street light automation projects. GSM/GPRS wireless data logger can be used for pump house automation in municipal operated large pump house for public use. GSM/GPRS wireless data logger finds applications in solar panel monitoring and wind mill monitoring. One of the major application of GSM/GPRS wireless data logger if temperature and humidity monitoring. Remote energy management, water flow monitoring, water totalizing, water level monitoring, assembly line automation are some of the area where GSM/GPRS wireless data loggers and RTUs find majority of applications.
