Main advantage of the module is its power supply eliminating extra costs related to providing external power line. Standard supply allows to operate for 3 years with scheduled transmissions or for about 2 months with continuous readout.
Optionally it is possible to use additional amount of battery packs to increase maintenance-free work time of the device.
A complete CMB-03 Telemetric Module comprises of 2 parts: telemetric module and battery pack. Telemetric module is responsible for communication between the user and the device which is being requested. Transmission is performed via GSM network using CSD or GPRS modes. Transmission type as well as time window are configurable and up to the user. RS-GAZ2 intrinsic safe serial communication port powers the appliance only during transmission. The module has 4 bistable intrinsic safe inputs. All inputs are able to send text messages (in SMS format) with predefined content.
Front panel includes USB diagnostic-communication port and several LED diodes informing about the state of the device. Additional feature is possibility of remote programming of the module followed by remote uploading the firmware.
The CMB-03 Telemetric Module’s battery pack consists of 6 holders for easy-accessible alkaline D-size batteries (also designated R20). Moreover, power unit is equipped with battery status control and fuse with indicator what considerably elevates technical maintenance and diagnostics.
