Remote Monitoring Control

 

As for Remote Monitoring and Control Systems, MSM offers the largest range of products for this purpose. We offer devices to control our beacons and lighthouses, as well as universal systems able to control lighting equipment from any aids-to-navigation manufacturer.

All these systems are completed with a specific software under Web environment able to combine AIS and Remote Monitoring features, which provides the user with constant information availability from any Internet access point.

MODELS AND TYPES OF Remote Monitoring Control :

MFGSM circuits are small and compact remote monitoring devices, fitted inside our LED lanterns. The sending and receiving remote control signals is done through GSM mobile phone messages.

Signals and alarms are sent up to 10 configured users. Users can be mobile phones or control centres.

Therefore, the ideal complement to the system is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Control Centre, in order to process and manage all the information exchanged. Its modular construction allows its installation subsequently to the purchase of a MSM lantern.

PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS

  • Ideal to remote monitoring and control of MSM lanterns.
  • Information is sent to mobile phones and control centres: in general to all authorized users or in priority agenda order, with alarm acknowledgment.
  • Configuration is made by PC and RS-232 cable, using a free software. It can also be remotely settled from a mobile phone.
  • A configurable sleep mode is available in order to save energy, but maintaining the transmission of messages at real time.
  • Positioning and swinging radius on buoys (when including MFGPS module).
  • Minimum energy consumption.
  • Free-communication protocols, which allows the user to utilise his own control centre or use them for any other application needed. An inner temperature sensor is included.
  • “Vigilantic” system available.
  • Its ideal complement is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Centre.

MFSAT circuits are small and compact remote control devices, fitted inside our LED lanterns. The sending and receiving remote control signals is done via satellite.

Perfect for remote and isolated stations, where any other communication system is not viable. Even though its low-cost operation, it is the most reliable and available communication system.

Signals and alarms are transmitted via e-mail up to 5 configurable addresses. The users can be e-mail addresses or control centres. Therefore, the ideal complement to the system is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Control Centre, in order to process and manage all the information exchanged.

Its modular construction allows its installation subsequently to the purchase of a MSM lantern.

MFUHF circuits are small and compact remote control devices, fitted inside our LED lanterns. The sending and receiving remote control signals is done through UHF frequency radio messages, on freeband.

It is ideal when there is a high concentration of medium-distance remote stations, as for example port entrance channels, bays, river beaconing, etc.

Signals and alarms are transmitted to the control centre. Therefore, the ideal complement to the system is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Control Centre, in order to process and manage all the information exchanged.

Its modular construction allows its installation subsequently to the purchase of a MSM lantern.

MFGPS position and synchronisation module is a device with double function. On the one hand, it is used to determine buoy positioning and, on the other hand, to synchronise lanterns through a GPS receiver of 12 channels.

Even if it is especially designed to be connected to a MF flasher, it allows to establish a synchronisation with lanterns from other manufacturers; since the synchronising delay can be adjusted with the programming software.

The MFGPS second function is to watch the aid to navigation positioning, in such a way that, if it is placed on a buoy, the maximum allowed swinging radius can be programmed, causing an alarm if the buoy exceeds the established limit.

PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS

  • High-sensitivity GPS satellite reception module of 12 channels, with integrated antenna.
  • It allows flash synchronisation between lanterns from MSM and the ones from other manufacturers.
  • A configurable sleep mode is available in order to save energy.
  • Initial self-detection of buoy position coordinates is made automatically, no manual configuration is needed.
  • Free-communication protocols, which allows the user to utilise his own control centre or use them for any other application needed.
  • Mooring chain breaking alarm by GPS positioning (for buoys).
  • Configurable maximum allowed swinging radius.
  • Setting by PC.
  • Remote configuration via GSM, radio or e-mail, depending on the communication system used.

MTU Remote Control Unit is an universal device, able to send status and alarm signals coming from any kind of beacon, either rotating or flashing one, without need to install any additional sensors or inner modification. Remote control can be also made to the beacon or peripheral devices. The system of sending and receiving remote signals is via SMS, GPRS, IRIDIUM or radio.

Users can be mobile phones, e-mail addresses or control centres. Signals and alarms can be transmitted to up to 10 configurable users, depending on communication mode.

Therefore, the system ideal complement is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Centre, in order to process and manage all the information exchanged.

MTF Remote Control Unit is a universal device designed for AtoN remote monitoring, especially for long-range beacons and major lighthouses.

It has multiple digital and analogical inputs and outputs, opto-coupled which may be timed and adjusted at different levels by a configuration software; as well as to configure their logic, being easily adapted to any control system installed into a lighthouse or beacon.

The unit uses different communication modems, depending on the way selected: GSM, radio, AIS, satellite, IP, microwaves, fibre optic, etc.

Although its ideal complement is the GLOBAL NETCOM Remote Monitoring Centre, the communication protocol used is free, in such a way that it is very easy to send the information to any existing platform.
