C5 adapter module

Purpose / Description

MC5 Adapter module is a device for collection, temporary storage and data processing from terminal units with subsequent upline to the information collector and data processing centers. The connection with appliances (road controllers, active energy meters, thermoregulators, etc.) is carried out by means of wire lines: RS485, RS232, Ethernet 10Mbit, current loop, Start protocol, quantized input/output, USB. Connection with the upper level is performed with the help of both wire lines (RS485, RS232, Ethernet 10Mbit, current loop, Start protocol, USB) and wireless GSM/GPRS links. The module supports function in the transparent mode as an interface converter, as well as nontransparent data communications protocols of different manufacturers.

  • a nonvolatile current time clock;
  • available flash memory capacity up to 256Kbyte (capability to install flash-chip with a unique MAC-address for working in Internet);
  • two Watch Dog timers (an inner processor timer and an independent outer timer);
  • two LED status indicators;
  • power supply +12 V;
  • power consumption not more than 10 W;
  • the operating temperature   400 up to + 500;
  • tolerance to mechanical effects L3 under the State Standard 12997-84;
  • protection from electrical shock: class III under the State Standard;
  • weight maximum 0.25 kg;
  • MC5 overall dimensions 25100115 mm.

    Performed functions

    5 is used for constructing different computerized telemetry and control systems: road traffic automated control systems (RTACS), automated energy control and metering system (AECMS), automated heating control and metering systems, automated electric lighting control systems, remote intrusion protection systems (control by the cell phone).

    Features & Benefits
    • - capability of data exchange via several wire interfaces simultaneously: RS485, RS232, Ethernet 10Mbit, current loop, Start protocol, USB 1.0 (either in master or slave mode);
    • - GSM/GPRS modem availability;
    • - quantized inputs/outputs availability;
    • - a current time clock with self-contained battery supply;
    • - capability to work  in the transparent data exchange mode;
    • - capability to reprogram the module for dealing with appliances having unique work protocols/ algorithms;
    • - remote module reprogramming;
    • - Start protocol supporting for data exchange with existing (outdated) light-signal objects controllers;
    • - module design diversity with various functional capabilities and prices;
    • - possibility to develop a modification with functional capabilities on the customers request.
    • Its moderate price, compact size, application commonality considerably distinguishes the MC5 module from similar devices on the market.

      The Company manufactures and delivers MC5 adapter modules, which at present are used in ARTACS for GPRS links with light-signal objects located in Grodno region. 5 are involved into AECMS project for RUE Beltelecom.
