Ruse, Bulgaria — TC Monitor is a software for logging, real time monitoring and control of controllers and sensors manufactured by Teracom Ltd. The program is compatible with the Ethernet controllers TCW122B-CM, TCW181B-CM and TCW240B, as well as with GSM/GPRS controller TCG120.
The monitored parameters can be any of the following
- voltage of analog inputs,
- states of digital inputs,
- states of relays, and
- any parameter for which a 1-wire sensor is being connected (temperature (TST100), temperature/humidity (TSH202), voltage (TSV200), 4/20 mA (TSA200), CO2 measurement and so on).
One must taken into consideration, that different controllers support different number and kind of 1-Wire sensors. The monitoring of the parameters is achieved with a help of dashboards, as each separate dashboard must be predefined either as a graphic or a parametric.
The parametric dashboards allow the simultaneous monitoring of up to 36 (6 x6 ) parameters, as for every single parameter there is an alarm indicator which activates if a parameter is out of its predefined range value.
The graphic dashboards allow the monitoring of up to 4 (2 x 2) graphics. Several parameters can be combined on a single graphic.
The values of all monitored parameters are periodically stored into a SQL database. This data can be exported in MS Excel spreadsheets for further analyses. The program consists of a core and user interface.
The user interface is web based, allowing intuitive set up and work.
The installation of the software is a “One Click Install” type. The functionality of the controllers-software system is based on the client-server technology.
In any given moment, the controllers perform only one task/role, while the program can work in the same time as a client for some controllers and as a server for others.
The client-server technology gives the opportunity for monitoring and control of devices, which are connected to Internet, but do not have public IP addresses.
There is only one requirement for this: the computer which runs the TC Monitor must have a public IP address with properly adjusted router settings.
TC Monitor is a good choice for small and medium home automation, industrial automation and general SCADA systems.
