Alpha | Cellular and Satellite Gateway
Remotely Monitor Any Asset
Cellular and satellite-based wireless communications technologies used for asset management, monitoring, control, and machine status. Reliably monitor, track critical asset data, and receive notifications without being onsite.
Compatible Sensors & Devices
The Alpha communication gateway is compatible with a wide range of sensors from a variety of manufacturers. Directly connect sensors that outputs a 4-20mA or Modbus RS-485 signal. Connect sensors such as:
- Fuel Gauges
- Engine Controls
- and more
Eliminate on-site visits by fine tuning your sensors and control logic from a remote location.
The need for constant communicate is one of the most critical aspects in the industrial automation industry. Whether you’re monitoring tank batteries in the oil and gas industry, or automating crucial aspects in the water/wastewater industry, a reliable connection is paramount to successful operations.
Our cloud solution conveys sensor and GPS data back to the user so that they can gain a better understanding of their business processes.
Service in Over 120 Countries!
We work with the world’s largest provider of mobile satellite voice and data services, offering service in over 120 countries around the world
The Alpha cell/satellite gateway can monitor and report data to the cloud for multiple sensors, making the Alpha a cost-effective solution for industrial applications.
Connect up to three, 4-20mA sensors to each Alpha to monitor several tanks with one unit. Provide a home-run connection to each sensor
Modbus RS-485 RTU
Daisy-chain up to 30 Modbus RS-485 RTU sensors per Alpha unit to monitor larger tank batteries or sensors.
With an AT&T or Verizon cellular connection, call in sensor data up to every minute.
Call frequency is dependent on the amount of sensors connected to the Alpha. For example, you can call in up to every 5 minutes for a single sensor, or if you have up to 30 sensors daisy-chained to an Alpha, you can call in up to every 15-30 minutes.
In the image above, the Alpha gateway is connected to several non-guided radar sensors monitoring levels. All level data is securely reported back to the cloud.
GPS Asset Location Tracking
View asset locations along side sensor data with one Alpha gateway. Our cloud solution allows users to view company assets on a map along with a visual representation of sensor status.
Custom Geofencing & Reporting
Easily create a geofence using our custom mapping tools to define where the asset is located.
Create custom alerts, and receive reports on how long the asset is on site as well as when an asset went in or out of the geofence.
Create parent-child company relationships to easily manage permissions at a company and user level.
Easily view all assets’ location and sensor data from companies underneath you. Customize who receives reports and alerts on a company level.
