Companies within industrial, tunnelling and mining industries will now have the option of a low-cost monitoring and control system following the launch of the new Senscape package from Trolex, specialists in Flammable Gas Detectors.
The Senscape package allows users to view the status of monitoring equipment from remote locations. By removing the graphic mimic displays and logic functions found in more costly SCADA packages, users view data in a simple tabular format, making the system more cost effective for simple systems.
Plant parameters such as set-point and relay states can be changed by the user where applicable. The alarm summary display ‘pops-up’ over other displays when an alarm is activated. For the display of recent data, the user can view on-screen trends, and data and events can be logged to files for offline analysis.
The system connects to the plant via the Modbus protocol over an RS485 serial link network or Ethernet TCP/IP network. Multiple networks including mixing RS485 and TCP/IP are supported.
Trolex has extensive experience in systems design and the wide-ranging expertise to put together the appropriate package for specific applications. The company’s project design team can integrate all aspects of a project to ensure functional compatibility with confidence in the safety and integrity of the system.
Trolex also provides fully configured SCADA packages to work alongside its sensors and controllers as part of the company’s ‘whole system’ philosophy.
