ML-x17, 2G/3G/4G(LTE-M) Data Logger

Solar powered 2G/3G/4G(LTE-M) data logger Solar powered 2G/3G/4G(LTE-M) data logger The ML-x17 data logger is a small, ultra low power, cost effective data logger with built-in 2G, 3G or 4G cellular modem. This small data logger, is further provided with an internal temperature sensor, 8GB micro SD card and a 2FF SIM card slot. The data logger is available with several power provisions e.g. a 3.6 Volt Lithium battery, 8..28V DC input or integrated solar panel with 3 x AA NiMH charger.

The data logger can acquire physical signals by 2 current loop inputs, 2 voltage inputs, 1 potentiometer input and 3 digital inputs. More or special inputs can be added by means of internal stackable option boards. The data logger is provided with one serial port to capture measurements from ASCII, MODBUS, NMEA or SDI-12 compatible sensors. External sensors can be powered by the data logger itself, to prevent them to consume power while the data logger is a sleep. Up to 8 mathematical channels are available to calculate meaningful engineering values derived from sensor input values (e.g. to calculate dissolved oxygen in saline water). Supports up to 8 aggregation channels (e.g. to record 2 or 10 minute wind speed averages sampled at 1Hz).

Logged data can be pushed to a central host by HTTP(S), FTP(S), e-mail, secure TCP or MQTT(S) at configurable intervals and optionally by satellite as well (Iridium SBD).

The ML-x17 is available in several editions and with 5 different cellular modems: When equipped with the integrated solar panel a complete self providing remote monitoring station can be arranged, all you need is a logger and applicable sensor(s). This self providing cellular logger is costs saving, because you don't need: a) solar panels, b) big batteries, c) cellular modem and d) encapsulating cabinet.
Features
1) 60mA if no external sensors need to be powered.
2) <1 sec. if external sensors are responsive and don't require time to "warm up".
3) Lithium batteries not included.
4) FTPS (TLS Explicit), ML-417 (LTE-M) does not support FTPS.
5) ML-417 (LTE-M) has no eMail abilities.
