Reporting Faults and Ensuring Availability

Transparent access to IP networks and serial terminal devices

Application Note 149

 

Initial situation

Monitoring machines, plants, operating equipment, raw material stocks, buildings and heat stations ensures normal operation. A precise notification must be sent immediately in case of a failure for a quick and successful intervention.

Objectives

  • Monitoring of controls and field buses
  • Sending significant performance data as SMS or e-mail
  • Early warning system by boolean operations for combining measured values
  • Sensing alarm contacts and issuing an alarm
  • Performing complex tasks via measuring and monitoring relay
  • Remote maintenance, remote operation, commissioning support

Solution

INSYS Smart Devices of the IMON series are fault monitor (SMS, e-mail) and cellular router in one unit: The integrated Monitoring App is available in 3 variants:

  1. Modbus TCP/RTU, function codes 1-6
  2. Siemens S7-200/-300/-400/-1200/-1500
  3. Siemens LOGO!™ 0BA4 to 0BA8


This is what the INSYS Monitoring App can do in bombination with the Siemens LOGO! :

  • Reading out flags, I/Os and process image
  • Visualising process image
  • Starting/stopping the program

Summary

The fault monitors are pre-configured for applications with measuring and monitoring relays and easy to configure using wizards. The cellular router uses the icom Connectivity Suite – VPN for encrypted communication in individual user groups; it also provides the connections to the field devices.

 

"The realisation of specific customer requirements is a breeze with the various possibilities of the Monitoring App in the IMON fault monitors and gives us customer solutions for optimisation, damage prevention and expansion" said Walter Walzl of Messtechnik GmbH & Co KG.
