Alert to avoid failures

Monitor analog and digital values easily and securely via the cellular network. The compact TC MOBILE I/O X200 signaling system keeps you up to date on the status or error state of your system, even in the field. The cellular router and the controller with integrated ILC 151 GSM/GPRS modem combine this capability in addition to their main task.

All solutions can be used to send text messages via SMS or e-mail, and to set one or more peer switching outputs, e.g. for activating the machine. Thus, you can prevent damage and downtimes, and avoid costly on-site servicing.

  • Reduced machine and system downtimes due to automatic alerts via SMS and e-mail
  • Decreased communication costs due to event-driven alerts
  • A conventional cellphone can serve as a peer
  • Cellular networks are available worldwide
  • Integration into existing control systems

SMS messages grant human and machine access to alarms and switching operations

One network via SMS

To this day, use of an SMS alert system when there is a fault or critical threshold values are present offers some advantages compared to modern communication methods. Even if the mobile reception is inadequate, SMS messages can be transmitted in situations when speaking and data communication are no longer functioning reliably. This makes it easier than ever for others to contact you in the field, even when the reception is poor.

Even in situations in which an alarm message is not intended to reach the technicians in the field, but is instead integrated into the alarm management of a control system, this technology offers a solution. Using a Phoenix Contact controller and cellular router together with the RESY+ function block, you can receive SMS messages and forward them to a control system via an interface such as the OPC interface.
