- What's Included
Sensaphone 2000 allows you to select up to eight inputs, digital or analog, to monitor conditions such as room temperature, outside temperature, power failure, humidity, tank levels, tank temperature, pressure, flow rates, flooding, HVAC controllers, etc. When there's a problem, it alerts you immediately. Whatever you need to know, the Sensaphone 2000 can tell you. You can program ranges to suit your specific monitoring requirements, and all programming can be done locally or from virtually any remote location. Digital functions include open/closed dry contact input and/or pulse counting. Analog can be read as a percentage or via a user-defined lookup table.
All it takes is a phone call to receive a voice status report or a data connection for more detailed information. You can check on any site and access critical information at any time from anywhere. The knowledge you need is always just a phone call away.
The Sensaphone 2000 will call up to 32 telephone numbers or e-mail addresses (both referred to as destinations) to report alarm conditions or send reports. Destinations can be voice calls, fax machines, computers with modems running Sensaphone 2000 software, e-mail addresses, numeric pagers, or alphanumeric pagers.
The unit is capable of performing data logging from the eight universal inputs, power and battery voltage. The data logging is stored in nonvolatile memory. A real-time clock is also included to time stamp logged data and to schedule reports. The unit is capable of sending automatic reports on a programmable time basis (i.e. Send a report every x hours starting at time xx:xx). Reports may be sent via fax or e-mail, and will be sent to
all destinations programmed to receive reports. The report comprises a cover page and the unit data, which includes the current conditions of each input, power status and battery condition. If the data logger is enabled and programmed to be sent with reports, a data log report will also be sent at this time. You have the additional option of retrieving the data logger information locally or remotely on demand. You can also have the Sensaphone 2000 call your PC and upload the entire data logger and event logger, storing the information in the Sensaphone 2000 database.
Manager 2000 Windows-programming software is included to allow quick and easy access to all of the unit's programmable parameters. Sophisticated features such as real-time input monitoring, graphical bar and gauge displays, polling of multiple units and a database to store and query data logger information, all combine to provide a complete monitoring system. Internet options for creating web pages and delivering e-mail are also included. The Programming and Operation chapters provide step-by-step instructions on how to use all of the unit's features.
The Sensaphone 2000 includes an internal UPS that automatically switches to battery backup in the event of an AC power failure. The battery in the Sensaphone 2000 is a 6 Volt 3.4AH rechargeable gel cell. This battery will keep the unit operating for approximately 10 hours when fully charged and under normal operating conditions. Note: The unit will not turn on unless AC power is connected, regardless of the condition of the back-up battery.
Line seizure gives the 2000 unit the ability to "seize" the telephone line when it needs to dial out. For example, if an emergency occurs which puts the 2000 in alarm mode, the unit will be able to dial out even if a telephone has been left off the hook. To the right of the PHONE LINE jack is another labeled PHONE EXT. This jack can be used to share a phone line with other devices (telephone, fax machine, modem) and to give the 2000 priority in the event of an emergency. To make use of this feature you must have all the extension devices originate from the PHONE EXT. jack. Whenever the unit must make an alarm phone call, the unit will disconnect any current phone calls and seize the line for its own use. The unit will continue to seize the line until the alarm has been acknowledged.
The LEDs provide on-site alarm and status information. Listed below are descriptions of how the LEDs work.
- Inputs 1-8 and Power: LED Off: Input OK, LED Blinking: Unacknowledged alarm exists LED On: Acknowledged alarm exists
- Battery: LED On: Battery condition OK, LED Blinking: Battery condition low, LED Off: Battery very low
- System-On: LED On: System power on, LED Off : System power off
- Phone: LED On: Unit is communicating on the phone line, LED Off: Unit is not using the phone line
- Output: LED On: The output relay is ON, LED Off: The output relay is OFF
Sensaphone 2000 Software Requirements
- 486 or better computer (Pentium recommended)
- 10 MB of free disk space
- 32 MB or more of RAM
- CD ROM drive
- Microsoft Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000 or XP
The Sensaphone 2000 software can generate a web page based on the information in your 2000 and post it on the internet at a programmable time interval. The web page can be created in both standard HTML and WML formats; the latter allows viewing on an internet-capable cell phone. The web page will include input and alarm information. If you have more than one Sensaphone 2000, a separate web page will be created for each. The web page is created every time a Sensaphone 2000 unit is polled. In this scenario your host computer would contact one or more Sensaphone 2000s, retrieve the I/O status and alarm information, then create the web page. The software then uploads the web page to a specified server and directory on the World Wide Web. Most internet service providers allocate several megabytes of space on their server for their subscribers to place their own web pages as part of the internet service contract. Contact your internet service provider for information. Note that a typical Sensaphone web page only uses about 60K of storage space. The Web Page feature requires that you have a computer running Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, or 2000. Internet providers which use proprietary software, such as America OnLine, cannot be used. Your internet service provider must support File Transfer Protocol (FTP).
When you receive the unit, carefully remove it from the box. Mounting tabs with holes are provided on the left and right sides of the enclosure. Mount the unit in a position that allows easy access to the input terminal block, battery compartment, on/off switch and the programming port. Also, there must be a power outlet and telephone jack close to the unit.
