SMS320

The EDAC SMS320 controller is a communications device that allows wireless remote alarm monitoring and control via 3G and GSM networks. The EDAC SMS320 is ideally suited to such applications as temperature, humidity,tank levels, flow and pressure monitoring.

The EDAC SMS320 is a cost-effective solution for controlling, monitoring and interrogating applications via SMS messaging and email.

Description

A cost effective, cellular-based remote monitoring control and logging system!

Based off the tried and true EDAC SMS 300 series product, the EDAC 320 integrates all of the features of the SMS 300 as well as adding some new ones.

  • Connects to approved 3G and GSM cellular networks and uses this connection to deliver critical information.
  • Employs SMS (Short Messaging Service), email via GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) and CSD (Circuit Switched Data) technologies to report and deliver this information.
  • Has the ability to monitor up to 8 inputs and send out messages via SMS or email when a predefined alarm or reset condition occurs. The EDAC 320’s inputs can accept either digital, 4-20mA analog or 0-5V analog inputs.
  • Has 4 integrated relay outputs which can be used to control various pieces of equipment. Any of the outputs can be switched either remotely via a user sending an SMS or email to the unit with the command, or automatically depending on the state of an input (i.e. low temperature detected, turn heating on).
  • Notification of outputs switching can be sent to any of the EDAC 320’s 16 different programmable contact slots.
  • Information from any of the EDAC 320’s inputs and outputs can be recorded to an on-board flash memory card, where it can be retrieved and viewed either locally or remotely via cellular networks at any time. This information can be useful for monitoring the performance of systems and equipment, recording/reporting of system faults as well as recording/logging of information for compliance in processing or resource allocation.
  • Like its brother the SMS 300, the EDAC 320 is sturdily constructed and enclosed in an extruded aluminium case ensuring maximum ruggedness and reliability.

Tech Specs

SPECIFICATION DESCRIPTION
POWER SUPPLY 12-28V AC/DC supply
When in idle mode the EDAC 320 draws less than 100mA. The PSU must be able to supply a peak current of up to 1A at 12VDC and 500mA at 24VDC.
FUSE 1A Internal Fixed Re-settable Fuse.
TELEPHONE NETWORK CONNECTION  3G and GSM – Telstra Australia or Vodafone NZ
CONTACT LIST CAPACITY 16 entries consisting of either cellphone numbers (for SMS alarm messages), or email addresses (for email messages). Each alarm can be sent to any combination of these contacts. Cellphone numbers are programmed in international format meaning SMS messages can be delivered to any cellular network in the world that is interlinked with the host network.
ALARM DELIVERY METHOD Either via SMS or email
INPUTS 8 user selectable 10bit Analog or Digital inputs. Sensor out of range warnings
INPUT SCAN RATE < 0.5 second
DE-BOUNCING Configurable between 0 and 10,000 seconds
ANALOG INPUT TYPE Individually configurable 0-5V or 4-20mA
ANALOG INPUT UNITS Engineering units can be specified to match the sensor type
ANALOG SCALING Scaling and zero offset parameters for each input
ANALOG ALARMING Hi-Alarm, Low-Alarm, Hi-Reset and Low-Reset parameters configurable in the specified engineering units for each input
CONTROL Outputs can be controlled manually via SMS or email. Outputs can also be activated by being linked to alarm conditions, either internally or on another EDAC 320 unit configured in the phone book.
OUTPUTS Normally open relays. 2A max, 50V AC/DC
DATA LOGGING RATES Globally configurable between 5 and 86,400 seconds (5 second resolution)
DATA CARD TYPE SD or MMC data cards up to 1 GB
DATA RETRIEVAL METHODS Either via remote dial up connection or locally by inserting card into desktop PC
OTHER INTERFACES RS-232 Serial and USB
DIAGNOSTIC INTERFACE Real time diagnostic interface showing condition of all I/O as well as signal strength and network status
CONFIGURATION INTERFACES Using the supplied windows configuration application via RS-232, USB or remote dial up connection (limited to contacts list only).
SITE MESSAGE 20 characters (max) which is attached to every alarm message
ALARM AND RESET MESSAGES 40 characters (max) for each alarm.
OUTPUT NAME 20 characters (max) for each output name. This can be used to control switching of the output using an SMS.
MODEM THROUGH-MODE The internal 3G and GSM modem can be used in through mode to provide a wireless serial link to an external device (e.g. PLC) or the EDAC 320
SMS COMMAND MODE The EDAC 320 can forward messages received via the serial port
