The RXi CPE330 will replace the older CPU320/315

PACSystems RX3i CPU320/315 will no longer be sold, and are replaced by PACSystems RX3i CPE330. This PLC has some siginificant benefits compared to its predecessors, of which the most important ones are listed below:

  • CPU is double as powerful.
  • Bigger flash and RAM memory to improve performance using more intensive applications.
  • Improved connectivity with a USB-port, CFast card slot (future version), and switched and unswitched Ethernet connections.

However there are also some considerations when replacing the CPU320/315 with the CPE330:

  • Different power supply necessities.
  • To program the PLC over a serial port, a serial module must be installed seeing as programming of the CPE330 is mainly done through USB.
  • Different shape, incorporating a metal casing.

Alert 3.6 Rev 2 Released!

Micromedia released revision 2 of its Alert 3.6 software, bringing along several new and improved features helping you to stay informed of your automated system’s state.

Indoor and outdoor localization on the map

This new version of the Alert software will not only localize an alarm on a street map, it also incorporates maps of the interior of your building. Using ‘beacon location management’, which is the placement and localization of small transmitters, your building is mapped completely. The alarm’s location is now more precise, allowing you to react quickly and safely.

Watchdog feature for the ‘Micromedia International vocal GSM modem’

The new built-in Watchdog feature (functional when using the ‘Micromedia International vocale GSM modem’), allows Alert to send an SMS warning you of a loss of connectivity to the system. This way, you will know immediately if your Alert system is  not operational, and you are always up-to-date on the safety in your facility.

Alert 3.6 Revision 2 new mediators compatibility

Alert’s mediators are now compatible with a larger number of existing applications (SIEMENS WinCC 7.3, ELUTIONS Control Maestro 2015, GE CIMPLICITY 9.0, and Intouch Machine Edition). This will help you integrate Alert into an operational system, making alert compatible with many existing, and new, applications.

SMPP Driver – send SMS over IP

Using a direct IP link, Alert can send an SMS to telecom providers, who in turn can send a bulk SMS to 100’s of numbers at the same time. And it does all of this in a matter of seconds. This way you can easily inform all employees of a critical alarm requiring evacuation (like a fire), using one of today’s most popular means of communication.
