HWg-Ares12 / 14: Termometro GSM/GPRS

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

HWg-Ares12 / 14: è un termometro GSM/GPRS, ma non solo! Esso permette il monitoraggio di sensori 1-wire ed ingressi digitali sulla rete GSM/GPRS attraverso l'invio di SMS ed email. Può essere utilizzato sia come soluzione indipendente che facente parte di un sistema misto LAN e GPRS, ed adatto all'acquisizione di centinaia di sensori.

Note: Shorted version - full details in english version.

HWg-Ares è una soluzione di monitoraggio ambientale remoto che può essere installato in pochi minuti. Necessita solamente della copertura GSM.

Il dispositivo è dotato di batteria al litio di back-up che, nel caso in cui venga a mancare l'alimentazione esterna, gli permette di avvisare fino a 5 destinatari via email e/o con SMS.

Il HWG-Ares può essere utilizzato anche come un semplice termometro GSM. Basta collegare sensori esterni (temperatura, 4-20mA, umidità, sensori di luce o di altro tipo) o due contatti puliti ed esso consente di monitorare tutti i sensori a distanza.

HWG-Ares è un sistema completo di monitoraggio GSM/GPRS, in grado di trasferire i dati provenienti dai sensori in un file MS Excel. Il traffico GPRS è ottimizzato per costo.

La caratteristica unica di questo sistema è che si possono combinare le letture di sensori basati su IP con altre provenienti dalla rete GSM/GPRS attraverso i dispositivi HWG-Ares. E' altresì disponibile un plug-in per Nagios, il più popolare software gratuito di monitoraggio SNMP.

Il prodotto viene fornito pronto per l'installazione, non è necessario alcun software aggiuntivo per la messa in funzione. Semplicemente è sufficiente collegare il PC al dispositivo attraverso la porta USB per effettuarne la configurazione, senza installare alcun software, dopodichè l'apparecchio e pronto per l'uso.

    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.
