The MT-051 is a battery operated telemetry module optimized for use in alarm systems and flow measuring applications (Automated Meter Reading) where power lines are not available and environmental conditions are harsh (dust, high humidity). MT-051 module is a data logging and transmitting device with the high degree of ingress protection. Like other modules from MT family MT-051 module is a cutting edge design characterized by technological advancement, innovative solutions, ease of configuration and integration with data gathering and processing systems. Module has possibility of initiating data transmission (event-driven or scheduled) what helps to minimize the transmission costs and energy consumption, therefore increasing battery life. Robust, compact design enclosed in a polycarbonate housing with IP67 protection allows installation and usage of module in places with harsh environment and without power supply (such as water meter pits). The module is powered from alkaline battery packs (optional lithium battery packs). Enclosure dimension indicates nominal capacity of the battery packs (S size – 3xLR20, M size – 6xLR20, L size – 9xLR20).
Voltage level of power source is monitored and transmitted together with measurement data.
MT-051 module is equipped with 5 binary/counter inputs (supporting potential free contacts e.g. pulse outputs of water meter). The MT-051 is compatible with intelligent water meter sensors providing total flow, compensated flow, flow direction, magnetic tampering and cable cut detection signals. The module ensures extremely low power consumption by deactivation of GSM/GPRS modem when there is no data transmission. Measurement data can be recorded in non-volatile Flash memory with precise time stamps. The module is supplied with userfriendly configuration environment and communication driver providing OPC, ODBC and CSV interfaces for data acquisition, and the software for remote management via GPRS, including remote configuration and firmware upgrade.
