HWg-Ares12 and 14 is a remote environment monitoring solution that can be used at any place with GSM coverage. Contains a battery for several hours of backup. Alerts to power failures by email or SMS (up to 5 phone numbers). Data can be read into HWg-PDMS (free software), connected to a Web portal or to a SCADA/NMS system. HWg-Ares collects and records data from connected sensors. Stored values can be sent to any system. Values outside of a specified range trigger an e-mail (over GPRS) or a text message (SMS) to multiple recipients.

HWg-Ares12 differs from HWg-Ares14 in the number of supported 1-Wire UNI sensors. Both versions include two digital (dry contact) inputs and support temperature, humidity, illumination, voltage and other 1-Wire UNI sensors.

Measured data can be natively imported into HWg-PDMS, a Windows application. Data can be sent directly to a server, or attached to a periodic e-mail report.

Internal battery can supply power to HWg-Ares12 and its connected sensors for several hours.

Comfortable configuration over USB simplifies installation of the unit.

Remote firmware upgrade (FOTA) capability simplifies management of large-scale installations with hundreds of devices.

The “HWg-Ares12 Tset” quick start set contains a temperature sensor, an universal power adapter and an external antenna.

Whenever a power outage or a sensor value outside of a specified range is detected, Ares12 rings a specified number and sends a customizable e-mail or text message.

HWg-Ares is ready for data transfer over IP (GPRS) to third-party systems.

Ares12 cooperates with the SensDesk web portal.

A special driver is needed for connecting to a NMS.

HW group is working on a “HWg-Push driver for Nagios” to connect LAN and GSM sensors.

HWg-Ares: Environment monitoring over GSM/GPRS

    • HWg-Ares is a telemetry device suitable for integration with third-party central/portal solutions.
    • With the HWg-PDMS software, HWg-Ares can offer an instantly usable data collection solution.
      Data outputs include logs+MS Excel analysis or a XML database.
    • Data collection over GSM with HWg-Ares can be combined with other IP sensors by HW group (Poseidon, Damocles, HWg-STE, HWg-PWR, and more).
    • HWg-Ares supports the same RJ11 sensors as the Poseidon family.
    • SMS notification of up to 5 recipients is advantageous for simple applications.
      Text messages can be customized with macros.
    • Sensor or device status can be requested by texting or calling the device.
    • Configuration software needs no installation. Simply run the Windows application from the USB drive that appears after connecting HWg-Ares to an USB port.
      • The internal battery enables alerting to failed/restored power supply. Suitable for monitoring UPS and back-up generators.
      • Roaming functions reduce data costs outside of the home GSM network. Suitable for automotive or marine applications.
