Remote data transmission by GSM (cellular devices)
Many locations, where data must be measured, are not connected to a fieldbus or network. Especially tanks, pump stations, wind engines and so on are far away from the next IT infrastructure. In these cases data transmission by GSM is used to periodically transmit a scan or even a set of scans to a receiver system. The TO-PASS module has an integrated GSM modem and can handle up to 8 analog channels. The data is transmitted to a provider, where it is taken by the measurement software MCPS.
