For a quick and easy start in the switch cabinet

Record sensor values, optimise energy consumption or monitor dosing pumps: The new software application for the myDatalogC3 switch cabinet controller, the myDataconC3+, makes configuration and parameterisation even easier from now on.

Table of Contents

The myDatalogC3 is used for data acquisition, communication and control. It combines PLC, router and firewall in one device and provides real-time data. The data connection is very efficient thanks to uplink technologies (mobile radio, WiFi, LAN). With the extension modules (input and output extension), the myDatalogC3 can be expanded to up to 27 industrial interfaces.

Possible Use Cases:

  • Record sensor values
  • Control plants remotely
  • Optimise energy consumption
  • Collect data from energy meters
  • Monitor dosing pumps

The input extension (myDatalogC3e 12UI/2Rel) provides the ability to acquire signals from twelve universal inputs (mA, V, pulse, frequency). In addition, two actuators can be controlled by means of potential-free relay contacts.

The output extension (myDatalogC3e 3mA/6Rel) is used to output signals from three mutually isolated mA (0/4…20 mA) outputs. In addition, the six relay outputs can be used for direct switching of loads.

Configuring in the platform or programming in the studio gives the myDatalogC3 its intelligence. Prefabricated applications simplify the use of the data logger and can be used and modified as desired.

The basic application for the myDatalogC3

The basic application myDataconC3 makes parameterisation of the logger child’s play and reduces the hurdles at start-up to an absolute minimum.

It offers the following basic functions:

  • Recording of all channels (inputs, outputs, internal channels)
  • Configurable recording interval
  • Constant online connection
  • Configurable warning, alarm and trigger thresholds for inputs
  • Alarm in case of supply voltage failure

The plus of the new application

The new application myDataconC3+ offers all the basic functions of the basic version. In addition, it supports one input extension and one output extension. Both the myDatalogC3 and the extension modules have their own serial number. The application automatically detects which extensions are connected. You do not need to configure a serial number of the extension modules. A physical connection to the base module via the CAN bus interface is sufficient.

This makes commissioning much easier. Furthermore, both extension modules do not have to be used at the beginning. It is possible to retrofit an extension module of a different type later.

If an additional input extension is used, it offers the same functions (alarms, triggers, …) of the universal channels as the basic module. The two relays of the input extension can also be used in digital mode.

With an additional output extension, you have three mA outputs available and can configure a static mA control value via the interface or the API using the myDataconC3+ application. The six relays of the output extension can also be used in digital mode.

This is how the configuration looks on the platform:

In this video you will learn in detail the most important facts about the data logger, possible areas of application and the new features of the software. In the last chapter (from minute 10:26) we get into the platform and show you how it all looks in practice.

BLE Radarsensor montiert im Kanal

Incredibly flexible: 5 ways to mount the BLE radar sensor

There is a lot going on in the rough environment of a sewer or rain overflow basin. During heavy rainfall events, for example, the water level swells and recedes within a very short time. In order to register the event at all, the measurement intervals must be very short. It is precisely in these situations that the BLE radar sensor shows its strengths.

Logging in the rain overflow basin

Rain overflow basins or combined sewer overflow basins relieve the sewer system during heavy rainfall. If the basin capacity is not sufficient, the partially treated water flows into public waters. The new feature of the platform helps to log data on the water pollution that has occurred in such situations.
