Scalable telecontrol solutions
TO-PASSTM, a complete telecontrol solution offered by WAGO consisting of stand-alone fault detectors with GSM connection, optional IP66 protection and a telecontrol PLC that can be linked to the WAGO-I/O-SYSTEM. This enables widely branched systems to be acquired in the same manner as remote stations. A GPS version is even available for locating vehicles using satellite signals. An Internet server with MySQL database rounds out the system features.
Automation components from WAGO are increasingly becoming standard components in process and process engineering systems. The new TO-PASS™ family of products reinforces this with a series of components all harmonized for interaction with one another. The stand-alone variants are intended for monitoring of smaller, remote objects and are equipped accordingly for the corresponding ambient conditions - for example, their acceptable ambient temperature range is -20 to +70°C! Remote access ensures a high degree of system availability, while simultaneously relieving the service personnel from the burden of having to perform time-consuming on-site inspections.
These compact, stand-alone units are equipped with a GSM quad-band modem for data transmission, freeing them from data lines or radio links. Not only is this GSM link reliable and virtually maintenance free, but with an appropriate contract it is also very cost-effective: A minute-by-minute data transfer plan is available for less than 10 € per month.
Bi-directional SMS communication, CSD dial-up connection for remote parameterization and GPRS transmission to a freely selectable Web server are also provided. Measured values can be stored at the server in an SQL database. This eliminates the need for a local data logger and time-consuming selection and exporting of measuring points. Visualization of the measured data does not require a higher-order system, but can be saved directly on the Web server using password protection.
