Speedy route to GSM for M2M
The WL-2 GSM pod is designed for quick and easy integration into products and assets such as security panels, control appliances and plant equipment
The WL-2 GSM pod is designed for quick and easy integration into products and assets such as security panels, control appliances and plant equipment to allow remote monitoring and control capability over the GSM/GPRS network. The WL-2 pod will especially appeal to system integrators and original equipment manufacturers who want to add wireless connectivity to their systems and products.
'The pod can be programmed easily over a standard PC serial cable using the Configurator software', said Sean O Connell, Technical Director, WatchLink GSM.
'With this Windows based program, you can set the WL-2 to various operating modes such as AT command and User Control modes'.
'You can also set up the pod for other M2M applications such as direct data communications to your own company servers and the Internet'.
'By using the user control mode in the Configurator software, you can be up and running very fast with standard I/O applications for remote sensing and control over the GSM network'.
'You can easily program the pod with the alarm and control messages that need to be sent and received using SMS text messages and your mobile phone'.
'A prepaid SIM card is sufficient for most applications'.
The WL-2 is a small stand-alone unit (85 x 65mm) that integrates the Nokia12 GSM engine.
The wide choice of wireless bearers supported by the WL-2 GSM pod allows the choice of the most appropriate one for the application.
The bearers include Edge, GPRS, HSCSD, CSD and SMS.
Users can further develop their own application programs using the Java programming language.
