The PCTDA006 is a cheap GSM/GPRS based device designed for remote control of buildings, plants and monitoring stations.
Notwithstanding its small size, the instrument is equipped with a display that makes available a simple user interface for the management of the device and the retrieving of the acquired data.
Data can be periodically transferred to a control centre via GPRS and/or be recorded on a removable SD-card. The data is organized in file with .csv format and can be simply imported and read through standard office automation tools (Microsoft Excel).
The availability of 2 configurable analogue inputs and 4 digital inputs allows the user to create monitoring stations for the management of a limited number of sensors. It represents a good solution for the monitoring of meteorological parameters such as rainfall, air temperature or water level.
Thanks to its low power consumption, the data logger can be installed within stand-alone applications powered by photovoltaic solar modules.
