iMod-93xx-GPRS Embedded Computer
iMod presents an innovational approach to telemetry and automation systems. iMod is a configurable ModBus device based on the efficient NPE hardware and system platform (linux).
Thanks to universal architecture and plug-in solutions, it can work as an universal communication module in cooperation with any user protocols.
- developed communication and reporting channels
- datalogging function
- a variety of hardware interfaces
- make this device the most universal on the automation and telemetry market.
iMod does not require programming - it is a configurable device, which is very helpful during start-up of complex monitoring and control systems.
iMod can perform the following functions:
- I/O Access: digital input/output, analog input and other
- Datalogger with FTP/SQL/WWW access
- Reporting or alarm module (email, text messaging)
- ModBus gateway or ModBus proxy with buffering and an archiving option
- Autonomic controller with visualization and WWW control options
Method of functioning
In a typical case, the iMod performs a specific sequence of tasks:
- downloading data from NPE interface or other outside devices using the Modbus, mBus, or other protocols
- buffering the gathered data with the option of its archivisation
- making data available for monitoring systems, such as SCADA type, or other iMod or PLC drivers, in polling form (pull-style) as well as event form (push-style)
Internal structure of the iMod system
For elastic and transparent realization of its tasks, iMod is defined as a system of independent channels.
There are 3 types of channels:
- data source channels
- data access channels
- message channels
Adding dedicated channels/protocols – iMod architecture makes it possible to add additional channels (protocols) in the plug-in system. Thanks to this functionality, the TRM device series has been developed. This guarantees that the application works in a systematic way based on one coherent system.
GPRS model has built in GSM/GPRS Class 10 modem. It allows to connect to the Internet and send and receive data up to three times faster than with an ordinary GSM network modems. GSM/GPRS/EDGE Class 10 modem works in three wavebands (900/1800/1900 MHz) and provides data transfer rates up to: 115.2kbps (downlink/uplink).
