iSCADA Gateway Devices

The iSCADA Gateway is an embedded Internet gateway and a data logger (RTU) combined into a compact and rugged package. They  are self-contained, function independently without the need of any PCs at site, and come with an extensive range of Internet connectivity options.

Gateway:  3000 Series  

The Gateway 3000 Series is a single-board computer design, based on the powerful ARM9 EP9302 processor. The key benefit of a single-board computer is the absence of mechanical parts, which means that the product is much more reliable and less prone to break down due to wear. 

The Gateway 3000 Series features up to 32 MB of NAND flash memory, and has the ability to run high speed SDRAM.

Devices

The Gateway 3000 Series is ideally suited for applications like:-

  • Energy / Power Meters
  • Server Rooms
  • Clean Rooms
  • Base Transceiver Stations
  • Reservoirs and Pump Houses

Gateway:  2000 Series  

The 2nnn.1002 series is designed for remote data acquisition via the Internet. Each Gateway has 10 inputs, 8 of which are user-programmable to receive analogue or digital signals. The remaining 2 inputs accept digital inputs only. Remote control is possible with 2 sets of normally open contacts. 

Analogue inputs can be 4-20mA or 0-5V while digital inputs can be volt-free contacts or 5VDC.

This series supports built-in PSTN, 10base-T Ethernet and external PSTN, GSM, GPRS, ACeS, WiFi, RF or VSAT connectivity.

Ideally suited for applications like:-

  • Condition Monitoring 
  • Power Management, Trending
  • Scientific and Industrial data acquisition

Gateway:  1000 Series 

The 10nn.1002 series is designed for exception-based monitoring. It has 10 volt-free contact inputs, 1 open collector and 1 normally open contact output. Internet connectivity to the iSCADA server is via a built-in PSTN modem or an external GSM modem. Legacy appliances can be monitored and managed remotely through the Internet by simply retrofitting this low cost device.   

I/O expansion up to 160 inputs and 32 outputs is easily achieved by cascading additional Slave devices. 

Ideally suited for applications like:-

  • Building Facility Management
  • Environmental Monitoring
  • Monitoring of remote or unmanned assets

iSCADA Slave Devices

The Slave Device is used for I/O points expansion or to interface multiple appliances to a single Gateway. It is similar to the Gateway 1000 Series except that it does not have a built-in modem and internet connectivity. It does not communicate with the internet directly but via the Gateway.

SLAVE  1000 Series  

Input Channels 

A total of 10 input channels are provided. These are user-programmable as Analogue or Digital inputs. A Digital input can be a relay contact or a DC (0 or 5V) signal. A maximum of 5 channels can be programmed as analogue channels (0 – 5V) to monitor parameters like temperature, pressure and liquid level. Sensors are not included.

Local network failure detection 

The Slave devices connects to each other and the Gateway via a pair of RS485 cable. Any failure in the communication cable will be detected and the affected Slave device reported to the iSCADA server.

Devices Log File 

The 01.1002 model is an Internet Gateway and a data logger combined. A non-volatile log file of the last 90 events is kept locally at the Device. The user may upload this log file for analysis.

iSCADA Interface Boards

For appliances that are not SCADA-ready.

We can retrofit older non-SCADA compliant devices with suitable interface boards that convert the parameters you need monitored into digital or analogue signals so that our Gateway or Slave devices can read them.

System integrators can make use of a variety of boards that interfaces with 240VAC, 24VDC and 12VDC systems.

If you require an interface device, please contact us with your specific needs.
