The KDMON is a system monitoring device which can monitor
Analog voltage -30V to +30V
It can be configured to generate alarms based on the above, which are optionally qualified by the day of the week and the time of day (the KDMON has an internal lithium battery backed real time clock) and are notified by
SMS text message
A wide range of alarm conditions and notification options can be configured via an RS232 configuration port, using a Windows-based configuration program which runs under Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000, XP, Vista and 7.
An external RS232-attached modem is required. The modem type depends on the type of notification configured. We sell the Cinterion (formerly Siemens) MC55i which we have tested with all the KDMON features. Its well known predecessor Siemens TC35 works with all features except email. Another modem which supports all KDMON features is the Cinterion BGS2T.
The following features are available via SMS:
Triggering of simulated alarms, and resetting of alarms
Fax transmission requires a modem which supports Class 1 or Class 2 fax (not Class 2.0). Not all GSM networks support fax however; for example in the UK, 2012, only Vodafone and Virgin support it.
The KDMON is powered from a 11-35V DC supply. In most applications, however, with 4-20mA sensors and with the modem powered from the same source, a 24V DC supply is optimal.
The KDMON is available in two versions which are identical except for the internal relay contact:
- standard product
These are sold separately and include suitable modems and antennae
MODEM-001 - Cinterion MC55i modem. Required for most KDMON applications.
