Ultra Low Power RTU with embedded solar panel

AIRICOM has a long expertize in the RTU business. While there are many products available on the market for telemetry, very few are capable of combining power autonomy and wireless technology.

AIRICOM is introducing a unique product from AMBER Technology (UK) to the Middle East.

The ML-215 RTU provides:

  • GPRS Data Logger
  • Battery & Solar Powered
  • Analog & Digital Inputs
  • Counter Inputs
  • RS232, RS485 & SDI-12
  • ASCII, MODBUS & NMEA
  • TCP, FTP, email & SMS
  • Optional Camera
  • Optional GPS & Satellite

The ML–215 data logger is a small, ultra low power, cost effective data logger with built–in QUAD–band GPRS modem. This small data logger, is further provided with an internal temperature sensor, 2 GB micro SD card and a 2FF SIM card slot. The logger can be powered by an internal 3.6 Volt Lithium battery that will last for years when the logger is configured in a low power mode. It is also possible to power the data logger using an optional integrated 3xAA NiMH PV–panel or 8-30V external DC source.

The data logger can acquire physical signals by 2 current loop inputs, 2 voltage inputs, 1 potentiometer input and 3 digital inputs. The data logger is provided with one serial port to capture measurements from ASCII, MODBUS/RTU, NMEA or SDI–12 compatible sensors. External sensors can be powered by the data logger itself, to prevent them to consume power while the data logger is a sleep.

Up to 8 mathematical channels are available to calculate meaningful engineering values derived from sensed values (e.g. a polynomial to calculate a flow from a stream level).

Logged data can be pushed to a central host by TCP, FTP, SMTP (e–mail) at configurable intervals.

The ML–215 is available in several editions and as ML–315 (3G) with 3G instead of GPRS MODEM.
When equipped with the integrated solar panel a complete self-providing remote monitoring station can be arranged, all you need is a logger and applicable sensor(s). This self-providing 2G logger is costs saving, because you don’t need: a) solar panels, b) big batteries, c) cellular modem and d) encapsulating cabinet.
