The CSMG-X is a versatile multi-protocol communication gateway with a wireless option (GPRS / CDMA) for communicating with a central SCADA system. It connects to various slave devices with support for various protocols like Modbus, IEC 870-5-101 and IEC 870-5-104.
The slave devices to be monitored and/or controlled are connected to the CSMG-X over RS-232 or RS485. The following slave device types are supported:
- Modbus slave devices (e.g. Modbus meters, RTUs)
- IEC 870-5-101 slave devices (e.g. RTUs)
In-built GPRS or CDMA modem (based on product order option) is provided for connecting the CSMG-X to the SCADA / Supervisory node apart from the standard LAN based access.
The protocols used to communicate with the SCADA / Supervisory node are: IEC 870-5-101(RS232C, point-to-point), IEC 8705-104 over LAN or GPRS/CDMA/PSTN. The CSMG-X can be configured to respond to multiple SCADA / Supervisory nodes.
