A755 addSDI GPRS V2

The A755 addSDI GPRS RTU in its version 2 was developed to provide users of SDI-12 sensors with an inexpensive means to log and transmit up to 40 SDI-12 values of environmental data, while at the same time providing 2 pulse inputs, e.g. for water meters and rain gauges, and 2 digital TTL ports which are custom configurable either as in- or as outputs.

Description

The A755 addSDI GPRS RTU in its version 2 was developed to provide users of SDI-12 sensors with an inexpensive means to log and transmit up to 40 SDI-12 values of environmental data, while at the same time providing 2 pulse inputs, e.g. for water meters and rain gauges, and 2 digital TTL ports which are custom configurable either as in- or as outputs.

  • Remote Transmission Unit
  • IP-67 ;Ultra low power design ;Cost effective solution in case of using digital sensors (SDI-12 / Modbus), digital I/O’s and counters ;Large integrated memory (2MB equals 6 months of data for usual 15 minute interval values)
  • GPRS, 3G
  • 2 pulse counter (2x 30Hz counters): 2 digital I/O (expandable with A553 up to 14 digital I/O’s): 40 SDI-12 values: Modbus support via adapter
