Production Data Goes Cellular

Oct. 2, 2009
The XCGSM is a GSM cellular modem expansion card for the vendor’s Data Station Plus and Modular Controller series data acquisition products. 
It enables cellular connectivity for remote and mobile data management applications without the use of external third-party modems. The expansion card allows users to connect with real-time production data via cell phone and e-mail. With the built-in Web server, users can remotely monitor and control their processes. Once connected to the cellular network, users can take advantage of integrated, IT-ready data logging of system performance and events for later review, port-sharing for control and programming of numerous PLCs and other devices. The expansion card allows for operation in frequencies across the Americas, Europe and Asia through a Quad-band modem.Red Lion Controls Inc.www.redlion.net717.767.6511
