ASL launches Pulse Data Logger (ASLH394) with GPRS connectivity at European Utility Week 2016
This product will interface to any pulse meter and provide connectivity via the GSM network M2M communications provider ASL has launched the first product in a range of DIN connect loggers/modems.
The Delta Plus DIN connect product (ASLH394) counts and stores pulses from utility meters, such as Electricity, Water, Heat and Gas, and provides information on usage via the GSM/GPRS network. Designed and manufactured in the UK, this new product is available in the DIN rail mount form factor, for simple installation in DIN rail enclosures, for sub-metering applications. For maximum compatibility and ease of use the unit has been designed to operate like a normal modem. There is no need to understand additional GSM network specific operations. Even when operating in GPRS mode, once installed it acts like a normal IP connection.
Features include an intelligent watchdog to monitor the state of the wireless modem for instances such as brown out detection to maximize high reliability of operation. The unit is pre-fitted with a secure solid state SIM supporting multiple networks with ASLH’s proprietary Advanced Roaming Protocol to ensure the best possible communications performance. It has a real-time clock (RTC) updated from the network, and the pulse input allows counting of any pulse contact device, providing contact wetting if needed. The pulse data is saved in 32bit non-volatile registers, and in conjunction with the RTC collects half-hourly (HH) interval count data. ASLH can provide comprehensive data reading and processing if required.
The first in a range of DIN connect products, ASLH394 is available now, with a Modbus interface version available within weeks. Visit ASL at booth number 3C43 at European Utility Week, or email email@example.com for more information, datasheets or pricing.
