Detailed information on the Metron2
The Metron 2 is a single box telemetry solution with four inputs (each with its own power supply for the sensor) and two contact outputs. It is intended to simplify the process of choosing, setting up and operating a telemetry system. It has a large LCD screen that allows it to be setup and commissioned extremely easily using a logical menu system. It logs data and sends wirelessly, it sends alarms and it displays the readings on the screen. It can be powered by its own internal battery or an external power source.
GSM Phone Networks for M2M
Its primary means of communication is using the GSM phone networks. It is a fully quad band enabled design, allowing it to communicate using SMS and GPRS data worldwide. It integrates GPS, an accelerometer, a temperature sensor, a large data logging memory, USB 2.0 connectivity, an integral antenna and capacitive buttons. Pluggable terminals allow ease of wiring and an expansion slot allows future applications to be accommodated. It can be powered from the internal battery (for up to 5 years) or externally from any 6-24V DC supply. All of this functionality is wrapped up in a single IP67 rated enclosure measuring a tiny 138 x 75 x 68mm.
Integral Programmable Processor allowing you to provide scaling information as well as tag names & units of measure, either locally or remotely. You can also program how often the unit takes readings, how often it transmits, alarm thresholds and phone numbers.
Quad band GSM for global operation with GPRS capabilities.
Our Metron2 Telemetry systems
Weatherproof — the Metron 2 comes in an IP67 enclosure.
Real time clock
Approved—designed to meet CE, ROHS, WEEE, UL, PTCRB and FCC approvals.
Integral antenna—plus the option for external antenna.
Self checking —the Metron looks after itself, making sure the modem, the micro-processor and the power supply are working OK and ensures the current draw is as it should be. Diagnostic features allows the user to quickly ensure the sim card is OK and the signal strength is acceptable.
Integral temperature sensor
Wide temperature range (-20 to +55 deg C operational temperature, -40 to + 80 deg C storage temperature).
Compact—the Metron 2 measures just 138 x 76 mm
