HWg-Ares12 / 14: GSM/GPRS-Thermometer mit SMS- & E-Mail-Funktion

Product replaced by a new generation Ares 10 / Ares 12.

GSM/GPRS-basiertes Fernüberwachungssystem für Sensoren und digitale Eingänge, das sowohl als komfortable eigenständige Lösung als auch für hunderte von Sensoren in gemischten LAN- und GPRS-Systemen eingesetzt werden kann.

Note: Shorted version - full details in english version.

HWG-Ares 12 ist eine Fernüberwachungslösung für Umgebungsparameter, die in wenigen Minuten installiert werden kann und lediglich eine GSM-Netzabdeckung benötigt. Das Gerät verfügt über eine interne Backup-Batterie. Im Falle externer Stromausfälle werden bis zu 5 Empfänger per E-Mail oder SMS benachrichtigt. HWG-Ares 12 kann aber auch als einfaches GSM-Thermometer eingesetzt werden.

Schließen Sie einfach externe Sensoren (Temperatur, 4-20 mA, Luftfeuchtigkeit, Licht und andere Sensoren) oder zwei potentialfreie Kontakte an, und Sie können alle Sensoren aus der Ferne überwachen. Die Daten der Sensoren können von der kostenlosen Software HWG-PDMS eingelesen, an ein Webportal weitergeleitet oder an ein SCADA/NMS-System übergeben werden.

Die Ares-Plattform kann für Ferninstallationen mit mehreren hundert Einheiten verwendet werden. Zu Beginn kann aber auch nur eine HWG-Ares 12-Einheit eingesetzt werden, um Diagramme in der mitgelieferten HWG-PDMS-Software anzuzeigen oder Daten im XML-Format zu exportieren.

HWG-Ares ist ein komplettes GSM-Überwachungssystem – vom Sensor bis zum Datenexport für Microsoft Excel. Die GPRS-Nutzung ist kostenoptimiert. Die Besonderheit: LAN-basierte IP-Sensoren können mit GSM/GPRS-HWG-Ares-Geräten kombiniert werden. Auch ein Plug-in für Nagios, die beliebteste kostenlose SNMP-Überwachungssoftware, ist verfügbar.

  • Interne Batterie: Notstromversorgung für die Fernüberwachung über mehrere Stunden durch die interne Backup-Batterie
  • Sensoren: Es können bis zu drei 1-Wire-UNI-Sensoren angeschlossen werden (Temperatur, Luftfeuchtigkeit, Licht, 4-20 mA, 0-60 V, Pt100/1000 mit externem Wandler)
  • Digitale Eingänge (DI): Zwei potentialfreie Eingänge für externe Detektoren/Sensoren
  • Alarmbenachrichtigung: Anwählen einer Rufnummer, Senden von SMS (5 Ziele) und E-Mail sowie HWg-Push
  • Datenlogger: Daten werden als E-Mail-Anhang oder auf dem USB-Massenspeicher zur Verfügung gestellt.
  • Software: CapTemp, kompatibel mit SensDesk-Portal, Nagios-Plug-in (2Q 2012)
  • USB-Schnittstelle: Konfigurationssoftware für Windows, keine Installation erforderlich
  • Die Fernaktualisierung der Firmware (FOTA) vereinfacht die Verwaltung von großen Installationen mit mehreren hundert Geräten.
  • Das "Tset"-Paket enthält einen Temperatursensor mit einem Kabel von 3 m Länge (bis zu max. 60 m absetzbar).

    First steps with GSM/GPRS thermometer Ares 12 set

    HWg-Ares: Environment monitoring over GSM/GPRS

    • HWg-Ares is a telemetry device suitable for integration with third-party central/portal solutions.
    • With the HWg-PDMS software, HWg-Ares can offer an instantly usable data collection solution.
      Data outputs include logs+MS Excel analysis or a XML database.
    • Data collection over GSM with HWg-Ares can be combined with other IP sensors by HW group (Poseidon, Damocles, HWg-STE, HWg-PWR, and more).
    • HWg-Ares supports the same RJ11 sensors as the Poseidon family.
    •  SMS notification of up to 5 recipients is advantageous for simple applications.
      Text messages can be customized with macros.
    • Sensor or device status can be requested by texting or calling the device.
    • Configuration software needs no installation. Simply run the Windows application from the USB drive that appears after connecting HWg-Ares to an USB port.
      • The internal battery enables alerting to failed/restored power supply. Suitable for monitoring UPS and back-up generators.
      • Roaming functions reduce data costs outside of the home GSM network. Suitable for automotive or marine applications.

      PDMS – Monitoring software

      PDMS: Excel reportsHWg-PDMS periodically collects input states and sensor values from Ares units connected over GSM/GPRS and other Poseidon, Damocles and HWg-STE units connected over IP. Measured data are periodically stored into a database and exported as MS Excel reports.

      • Registered version is free of charge for three sensors.
      • Data are collected over IP (using http and the device IP address / by e-mail)
      • Data collection runs in the background as a Windows service
      • Graphical overview of the collected data
      • Simple export to MS Excel (runs periodically in the background)

      How to connect HWg-Ares to PDMS

      • 1) E-MAIL: Through the email interface. HWg-Ares sends e-mails to a dedicated mailbox, PDMS periodically downloads them from there.
        PDMS processes e-mails with attached LOG files as well as alert messages.
      • 2) HWg-Push: HWg-PDMS is installed on a server with a public IP address. HWg-Ares periodically sends data from connected sensors over HTTP.
