Industrial GSM/GPRS Modem for Wireless Remote Data Acquisition

Integrated TCP/IP stack allows the implementation of simple control systems into the GPRS network

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - The new GSM/GPRS serial modem from Phoenix Contact provides global access to machines and systems via GSM connections. An integrated TCP/IP stack allows the implementation of simple control systems into the GPRS network.

The PSI-GPRS/GSM-MODEM/RS232-QB-USA modem has the necessary PTCRB and AT&T approvals for legal use to GSM and GPRS networks within the U.S. and Canada. Once activated, the modem will work anywhere in North America where AT&T or Rogers Wireless cellular networks provide service coverage.

A pre-installed SIM card makes activation quick and easy. Phoenix Contact's service partner, Stanza Systems, offers Diversenet service, eliminating the need to contact another carrier. Diversenet can be used to monitor both remote and metropolitan equipment as well as to send notifications and alarms via SMS, right to a cell phone.

The modem's quad band technology allows worldwide use. It features two digital alarm inputs via COMBICON connector and one digital output via T-bus connector. The modem operates in an extended temperature range of -25 degrees Celsius to 60 degrees Celsius.

Phoenix Contact is a world leader in electrical connection, electronic interface and industrial automation technologies. A global company with annual sales exceeding 1 billion euro, Phoenix Contact GmbH & Co., Blomberg, Germany, operates 46 international subsidiaries, including Phoenix Contact USA in Middletown, Pa.
