Data Net System (DNS)

  • Overview

    No Gridlock on this Network...

    The AGM DataNetSystem (DNS) provides the foundation for rapid implementation and deployment of plant/facility wide wireless field data communications.

    Since the DNS can operate from the power of the replaceable battery, it is now possible to collect data from locations that do not have an available power source.

    Mesh Networking communications protocol (Data Relaying) and inherent data encryption along with industrial strength packaging insures dependable and reliable operation.

  • Wireless Data Communications: The cost associated with adding facility wide data acquisition is greatly lowered.

    Mesh Networking Topology (Data Relaying):  This type of network automatically compensates for weak links ensuring that the most remote data points are accessible.

    Secure/Reliable Data Transmissions:  Builtin 128-bit AES encryption considerably reduces the probability of compromised data.

    Low Power - Battery or 11/30 VDC:  The Data Net Modules (DNM) used in the DNS include intgral battery backup. Therefore, during power outages, field data will still be accessible. In some cases, remote DNM's can be operated solely on battery power. 

    Up to 4 Analog and Discrete Inputs and Outputs:  Data Net Modules are available in a variety of Input / Output types and options.

    Packaging:  Small foot print (2.75 X 3.5 inches), hermectically sealed, DIN rail mountable, "Plug and Play" field wiring terminals facilitate rapid deployment and lower installation costs.

    Easily Configured:  The Data Net System Designer App software which incorporates visual aids and "Pick and Place" technology  along with the visual status indicators on the DNM's simplifies startup and management of the wireless network.

    7-Year Transferable Warranty:  AGM provides ongoing software and hardware support for the life of the product warranty.

  • The following table is a compilation of a few of the many applications that the AGM Data Net System (DNS) can be applied to.

    If you have an application that you are uncertain as to whether or not the Data Net System is the correct product to apply, contact AGM's Technical Support Team and they will work with you to insure that the correct product is selected for your design requirements.
       Functional Use Application Description
    1 Safety Equipment Monitoring  Notification when and where a safety related device has been accessed such as a Fire Extinguisher or Emergency Eye Wash Station leads to improved safety
    2 “Hump” yard management Remote control of rail Yard Track Switchers can be done from multiple locations including the Locomotive
    3 Perimeter Monitoring Security notification when and where there has been a breach of a secured area improves the probability of catching the intruder
    4 Chemical Inventory Control (Incuding Leak and Spill Detection) Knowing when and where a Chemical Spill or Leak occurs greatly reduces health risks and potential fines
    5 Energy Management Use data from Wind and Solar farms to determine preventative maintenance schedules
    6 Irrigation Management Use of field Soil Moisture data results in better water utilization
    7 Flow Meter Totalizer Flow Data Acquisition Facility wide Flow Meter Totalized Flows readings are made wirelessly rather than having to go to each meter and reading them manually
