PgmSoft for MicroMotion 3000

I. Overview

PgmSoft presents a wireless solution for communication and management of industrial devices with Modbus protocol.

Main advantages of the system:

- real time communitacion and managment via bluetooth protocol – up to 100 meters

- remote communication, service and data collection via internet (wifi, umts, 3g) – worldwide

II. Description

System has several key elements:

- Micromotion device

- Industrial grade mini computer with PgmReader application

- Android device with PgmMotion application

- Data server (optional)

PgmReader server application on mini computer is a key element provides communication:

- with MicroMotion via Modbus protocol (RS 485)

- wireless real time communication with Android devices via bluetooth protocol (peer to peer)

- with Android devices via internet (TCP/IP) mode

Beside communication PgmReader can save all registers status with minimal interval 300 miliseconds and send it to Data Server via internet.

PgmMotion android application on android device provides:

- interface to manage MicroMotion devices

- setting and reading registers values from Micromotion devices

- realtime monitor current values

- two operation modes:

bluetooth – real time, low latency, peer 2 peer connection (up to 8 bluetooth devices simultaneously)

tcp/ip – provides communication via internet (worldwide), delays in communication are higer than bluetooth connection

All communication beetween PgmMotion application and PgmReader on industrial computer are encrypted.
