VEGA releases PLICSMOBILE remote monitoring system
June 8, 2011 -PLICSMOBILE transmitting and receiving unit fits seamlessly into VEGA's modular plics system. It’s available as an integrated module for the new plicsplus sensor generation, or as a standalone instrument PLICSMOBILE T61, which can be powered from the existing signal cable, by battery or other renewable energy source.
The SIM card and integrated modem allow worldwide data transmission via the mobile network GSM/GPRS – including ‘dial in’ remote diagnosis and service using industry standard PACTware FDT/DTM software. PLICSMOBILE is stand alone, nothing else needed, no other intermediate signal boxes or modems nearby. Cabling can also be left out too: an integrated energy system manages any battery supply of sensor and emitting unit.
This means PLICSMOBILE offers real capability and flexibility in deployment, especially in the area of Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) they can be installed and operate independently with any VEGA technology - measuring liquid in tanks or silo levels up to 75m with battery power only, and sending data globally. With the options of ; PLICSMOBILE, PLICSRADIO and HART Wireless compatibility, VEGA can now cover practically any application in wireless communication from local to global.
