Innovation partnership creates new low cost solution to telemetry communication
Nov 09 2018 Read 609 Times
Churchill Controls have recently launched their latest innovation, the Mega Link telemetry system, which is enhanced and partnered with the Mega Bridge IP communicator. This is a low-cost, versatile telemetry communication system for passing two-way instrumentation, measurement and control data between industrial plant and equipment, distributed over wide geographical areas and remote locations.
Mega Bridge adds flexible and fully featured internet protocol (IP) connectivity to the well-established Mega Link family of telemetry and control units used to pass two-way instrumentation, measurement and control data between equipment and industrial plant. IP connection scenarios range from simple self-contained Local Area Networks (LAN), Wide Area Networks (WAN) to multiple networks anywhere across the internet for distributed geographical areas and remote locations.
Instead of a USB cable connected from the user's laptop running DUCX configuration and diagnostics software, the laptop's USB port is connected to a Mega Bridge unit operating in DUCX Bridge mode. The Mega Bridge will handle the setting up of a secure communication path with a dedicated message server to each of the respective Mega Bridge units, wherever they may be located in the world.
This cutting edge innovation was possible thanks to an impressive collaboration. For the past 24 months Churchill Controls have been engaged on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) project with The University of Reading, part funded by Innovate UK. Churchill Controls have over 4 decades of providing cost effective solutions to the problems of monitoring and controlling remote industrial plant and this, combined with the additional collaboration from the KTP, resulted in providing the level of R&D needed to develop the highly innovative Mega Bridge.
