Connection of control device to PC by means of fiber-optic cable
For data transmission across long distances and/or in extremely interfering environments, we strongly recommend the use of fiber-optic cables. Easily installed connections over relatively short distances up to 100 m are made possible by the use of plastic optical fiber cables, whereas for a distance segment of up to 3800 m, the use of fiber-optic lines is made necessary. The attenuation of the light in fiber-optic lines is considerably lower than that in plastic optical fiber cables.
While, in the past, the installation and preparation of fiber-optic lines was rather difficult, many suppliers now offer a comprehensive service of installation and customizing of cables, due to the fact that fiber-optic technology is now increasingly applied in commercial networks.

Send messages - when limits are violated or timer-based - for informational purposes directly to the responsible technical as an e-mail or as a reroute via SMS.
After the device has been configured for and connected to your network, the following steps are still necessary.
|Open the profile for configuring e-mail alarm messages.|
|Enter the desired parameters.|
|When the limit you have set is exceeded, the device sends an e-mail which can also be transmitted as an SMS message using special functions available from cellular phone service providers.|
