Controller Adds Text Messaging

July 6, 2010
With the introduction of a GSM modem, the Nanoline controller can now provide control capability via text message from virtually anywhere in the world. 
The modem uses the Global System for Mobile (GSM) Communication network, the same network that supports cellular phones. The modem sends text messages via the Short Message Service (SMS) protocol to and from remote locations that require simple control capabilities. The addition of the modem enables the controller to act as a remote-terminal unit (RTU) with the added ability to solve logic. The modem’s phone book can store up to eight phone numbers that can be configured to send program messages and/or fault or warning messages. The Nanoline is a small, flexible controller designed for simple applications. Phoenix Contact Inc.www.phoenixcontact.com717.944.1300
