Communication Server

DataWatt Solutions

A simple interface connection

Communication Server | IoT | GPRS

Communication server collects data from the data loggers or other third party equipment and transfers it to the central system software where it is integrated within the environment. The data loggers at site communicate with the IEC609870-5-104 protocol on the GPRS network with the communication server that interfaces with the central system. 

Communication server software provides an interface between the hardware on location and the software programs in the host applications. Our interfaces provide a number of services for communication with other applications.

Features & Benefits At A Glance

Experienced with providing large data logging and telemetry systems

PI interface that operates independently

Dynamic Link Library (DLL), an open interface to communicate with loggers and RTUs

SIMULTANEOUS COMMUNICATION

An important part of our solution is the reliable handling of communication to the different locations in the field. Our communication server runs on the Windows platform and communicates with multiple modems and TCP socket connections simultaneously. Our communication server has a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) that provides an open interface that allows third parties to communicate with our data loggers and RTUs.

RELIABLE AND FLEXIBLE

For data logging systems, it is especially important that the solution handles correctly in challenging situations, such as failures or disturbances. With many years of expertise of data logging and telemetry systems of various sizes, we are confident that the DataWatt solution is reliable and flexible.

PI INTERFACE

The PI interface has been developed to communicate independently to the Osisoft PI system. The communication server operates between the field modules and the central application. Communication is made using the IEC60870-5-104 communication protocol. This makes it possible to send data from all sorts of equipment to the Osisoft PI servers. 

BEST PRACTICES

Successful case studies include the Data for Vitens project and the leak detection project for Oasen. Many water companies in the Netherlands use the central OSIsoft PI system for collecting process information about the pipeline network.
