- Model Series 6 RTU - Remote-Controlled, Ultra Low-Power Datalogger

From

0

The ADCON SERIES 6 RTU is the new generation of remote-controlled, ultra low-power dataloggers for agricultural, meteorological and hydrological applications at a competitive price. The series differentiates from its predecessors by a self-monitoring battery, a larger memory for up to 2 million values and wireless communication via Bluetooth.

Further advantages are the data encryption option to ensure data safety, the convenient firmware update over the air as well as the future-proof design for integration in IoT networks and existing state-of-the-art communication technologies.

The ADCON SERIES 6 RTU is available as 2G/3G or 4G/LTE version and is equipped with a fast 32-bit-CPU.

  • Device type: Compact data logger with integrated cell modem
  • Product highlights: ultra-low-power design; large integrated memory; IP-67/IP-65; WMO-compliant weather recording; Bluetooth; Firmware update over the air feature (FOTA )
  • Data transmission: 2G/3G or 4G/LTE
  • Sensor interfaces: A764:  12x analog in (0 … 2,5 VDC); 4x pulse counter 4x digital in/out (0 … 3 V TTL); 40x SDI-12 values; Analog resolution:  16-Bit @ 0 … 2,5 V
Like all ADCON RTUs the SERIES 6 RTUs are fully integrated units: datalogger, cell modem and battery all together, fit into an extremely compact and robust aluminum case. In contrast to standard logger solutions the SERIES 6 RTUs does not need a separate enclosure, lots of wires to modem, battery and antenna, complicated setup to make the logger talk to the modem, etc. - the RTUs are truly plug and play. Connect the sensors and your solar panel by simply screwing in a connector, insert your SIM card, program your PIN code (for security reasons) and the IP address of your A850 Telemetry Gateway - ready to go!

In combination with ADCON's ultra-low-power sensors the SERIES 6 RTUs also runs off an extra small solar panel, about the size of a sheet of paper in DIN A5. That not only reduces wind pressure a lot, it allows for a light installation and it usually keeps thieves away - it's just too small to be attractive.
