The MBW-100 is a fully pre-configured remote monitoring and control solution, tailored for pumps. The system consists of a local touchscreen to view pump speed and status, flow rate, and any faults. Start/stop buttons and a speed set point allow operator control. External equipment is controlled by analog (4-20mA, 0-5V, or 0-10V) and digital signals (relays, and opto-inputs) to ensure compatibility with virtually any third party drives and instrumentation. A 3G modem provides wireless access to the internet over the mobile network, allowing remote control via the free computer or smartphone app (see images). All is housed on DIN rail in a panel mountable IP65 weatherproof enclosure.
Default configuration shows flow, pump speed, pump set point speed, motor on/off/fault status, and start/stop buttons. Pump speed can be changed using pop up keypad. 4.3 inch screen with Ethernet, RS-232, and RS-485.
Input & Output:
Default configuration uses 1 x analog output for speed set point, 2 x analog inputs for flow and motor speed, 1 x digital output for pump start/stop, and 2 x digital inputs for pump stopped/running and pump faulted.
An Industrial SIM card is provided, which operates on the Telstra network, is rated for a wider operating temperature range than standard SIM, can withstand vibration, and has a publicly facing IP address to allow access over the internet. The modem will be configured in the factory to:
- Provide access details for the SIM card to use the Telstra network
- Set up port forwarding rules to make the HMI available for access on the internet
- Set up a domain name for user access, and dynamic IP address tracking
You will be given a username and password which enables access to the online portal. This portal allows you to choose your data plan, turn the SIM on and off, and monitor data usage.
This product is tailored for pump control applications, but all components are fully customisable to suit any project. Contact us with your requirements and we can alter the HMI and I/O to suit your application.
