GSM-PRO2: the perfect communicator
CONTA-CLIP's GSM-PRO2 module provides a 2G/3G remote control and maintenance solution which allows you to monitor and control decentralized facilities.
4G versions available follow to give full global coverage in the USA & Australia.
The GSM-PRO2 module informs you when your process has achieved a user-defined status or limit value. Digital and analogue inputs values can also be transmitted via e-mail or SMS (text message). The digital relay outputs can be switched using an SMS sent from the decentralized control room or from the service technician. So the process can be monitored and controlled remotely. Android and iPhone apps are available to make the monitoring and control functions of the GSM-PRO2 modules even easier to operate.
A user-friendly browser-based application can be used to configure the module´s inputs and outputs and their required functions.
The GSM-PRO2-GPS module has integrated GPS functionality with an external antenna connection. The module can determine its exact position at any time. So the user can see the location on a map using a web browser. This enables you to easily and continually monitor the positions of mobile facilities or machines.
Input and output
The GSM-PRO2 modules are equipped with two multi-function inputs, one relay outarate pulse counter input which can process a maximum of 1000 pulses per second, so that for example a photovoltaic system or a kWh meter can be connected.
The GSM-PRO2 modules also provide the option for expanding the number of available inputs and outputs. Up to 15 I/O expansion modules, in 4 different versions, can be controlled for each module. The built-in plug connector supplies power and control functionality for the modules. The expansion modules can also be configured with the user-friendly browser-based application.
OTA (over-the-air) capabilities
In many systems or machines, some parameters or user entries may need to be changed after the installation is completed.
In such cases you may also need to change parameters on the GSM-PRO2 module. The GSM-PRO2 module features OTA (over-the-air) functions for just such instances.
Whether you are adding a new phone number or email address of a new user, a new I/O setting,
a change in the module name or any other change: the settings on all GSM-PRO2 modules can easily be changed from remote locations around the world.
OTA firmware updates
The GSM-PRO2 can also update its firmware using OTA.
So modules with different versions can always be kept up to date.
Is your process running optimally? What happened last week?
How many hours has the machine been running this week?
The extensive logging functionality of the GSM-PRO2 module
allows you to log events that have taken place at a facility or a machine over a defined period of time. The log files can be transferred to the PC using a USB cable. Or you can have the log files automatically sent to your e-mail address or displayed via a web-based portal.
● Logs all communication of the module
● Logs the process values of the analogue inputs
Counter for the operating hours
● Logs the time that an input or output is activated
CONTA-CLIP's iPhone and Android smartphone apps for the GSM-PRO2 modules provide a simple and fast solution so that you can get an overview of each distributed system and application. This app can show you the status of all inputs and outputs from one or more GSM-PRO2 modules. They also allow you a degree of control over the process. Module outputs can be controlled easily and directly using this app. The app´s buttons provide an intuitive control interface (for controlling a heater, motor, water pump, etc.).
Web portal software (coming soon)
The GSM-PRO2, like most SMS modules, is often used as stand-alone units in the field. These modules are put to use at various remote locations even though they normally have configurations which are very similar. It is often quite helpful to have one overall view of the status of all modules used in the field. The new GSM-PRO2 web-based portal software from CONTA-CLIP offers you precisely this possibility. All modules in the field can now be easily monitored and run from a single local site or control panel.
