E951 Telematics Field Controller - TELFICON I


We regret to inform you that this product is DISCONTINUED; please find our current products here
 

TELFICON is a compact microcontroller with built-in GSM communications and GPS positioning capabilities, designed for telematics, telemetry, and remote control and monitoring applications requiring reliable operation in harsh environmental conditions. The unit is programmed to fulfill tasks necessary in a particular application.

The internal GPS receiver of the unit allows to monitor the geographical coordinates of the host carrying a TELFICON, and guarantees precise timing (synchronization) of events in larger systems utilizing TELFICON units.

In default configuration, the unit is equipped with 7 analog inputs for voltage level measurement, and 4 binary inputs/outputs for monitoring of swithes, or relay control*. Depending on application requirements, various control loops can be programmed supporting data logging, remote monitoring, control, alarm generation, etc. We can adapt the TELFICON to user-specific application, adding signal inputs/outputs and providing signal conditioning to match applied sensor signals.


Features:

  • Data communication in GSM-900 networks
    (300...9600 BPS)
  • Positioning and timing based on GPS satellite constellation
    (15 m with 95 % probability, SA off)
  • Programmable controller (16 bit CPU):
    • 7 analog inputs (0..5.0 VDC, 10 bit)
    • 4 binary inputs/outputs
    • RS485 and RS232 interfaces
  • Extremely low power standby (I < 1mA)
  • Fully weather-sealed enclosure

Environmental Conditions

  • Ambient air temperature from 20 oC to + 55 oC
  • Relative humidity up to 98 % at temperature up to +35 oC
  • Application in salt mist conditions is allowed (IEC 60068-2-11);
  • Mechanical vibration 10 - 500 Hz with acceleration up to 2.2 g
  • Ingress Protection class: IP68
