Integrated web access, alarm event handling and data capture for process instruments

Friday, January 15th, 2010

The new remote data manager Sitrans RD500 in one device integrates web access, alarm event handling and data capture for remote installed process instruments. The new product of the Siemens Industry Automation Division is suitable for the management and monitoring remote installed process instruments, including flow, level, pressure, temperature and weighing. The user is able to monitor equipment from anywhere using a standard web browser by computer, PDA or smart phone.
The compact Sitrans RD500 requires only simple configuration; no engineering or programming is required. Sitrans RD500 offers flexible I/O and communications and scalability. It accepts analog, voltage, digital, temperature and Modbus inputs, and provides flexible communications options via Ethernet, cellular and land line modems. The standard compact flash memory slot offers up to 2 Gigabytes of memory for data storage. Data logging uses file formats of common computer platforms, which can be accessed without special software. Sitrans RD500 offers standard data transfer options for regular reporting and alarms to remote servers, email-clients – including cell phone, PDA and desktop computers – and SMS messaging.
Government regulations increasingly require industry to monitor critical applications for health, safety and environmental reasons. Cost reductions drive organizations to access their remote instrumentation for data synchronization to optimize logistic and corporate reporting systems. For these applications Sitrans RD500’s remote monitoring, alarming and data logging provides an economic solution.
