Portable data collection console PPSD-1
Portable data collection console PPSD-1 (hereinafter, console PPSD-1) is a component of the VEGA-NET system for automatic data collection from remote metering units of domestic natural gas consumers. It is intended for remote polling domestic natural gas meters fitted with VEGA-T radio modules (hereinafter, radio module) over radio communication channels.
Console PPSD-1 can maintain connection with radio modules at a maximum of 300 meters line of sight or maximum 30 m in rooms with partitions.
Radio communication with VEGA-T radio modules used in domestic gas meters is maintained by the VEGA-T-Р radio module included in console PPSD-1. It operates in the same frequency range as that of radio modules in domestic gas meters.
The design of the radio module included in console PPSD-1 should be similar to that of radio modules installed in domestic gas meters.
Console PPSD-1 enables receiving information from radio modules, displaying received information on the console screen in tabular form, and saving the data in a memory.
The data received from metering devices are transferred from console PPSD-1 to the dispatcher server with a USB flash memory stick included in the console PPSD-1 set.
Console PPSD-1 enables determining the radio visibility zone for installed radio modules, optimising the system network installation process, and if required, identifying the points for installing radio modules operating in the retransmission mode — radio line “extensions”.
Console PPSD-1 is easy to set up, and its operation needs no special skills. The system has a user-friendly interface, a complete software package, and needs no updating.
Console PPSD-1 can be delivered as a tablet with integrated dedicated software and connected radio module VEGA-T-Р.
Console PPSD-1 is powered from:
- Built-in storage batteries;
- An external power source included in the delivery set;
- A car cigarette lighter adapter.
Operating conditions of console PPSD-1:
- ambient air temperature, -20 °С to +30 °С;
- air humidity up to 98 % at 25 °С.
