MT Manager, Software Tool for InVentia Modules (Info)
MT Manager, Software Tool for InVentia Modules (Info)This software tool cannot be purchased here.
It is available for customers as a download after the purchase of an InVentia telemetry or tracking module.
Along with the telemetry and location tracking modules InVentia delivers the MT Manager (MTM) intuitive software tool for easy configuration of all parameters, operation modes and functions of each module, and for creation of the control program to be executed by the module. The user can freely name the modules and their inputs and outputs to ease the identification. The MT Manager does not require any specialised knowledge, and the meaning of particular fields and functions is clearly described in the documentation delivered in electronic and printed form.
All changes of the configuration and control programs, including firmware updates, can be done remotely via GPRS network. Such capability saves time and reduces the number of user trips to remote objects where the modules are installed. The built-in security system provides the access password for each module as well as the lists of authorized IP addresses and phone numbers allowed to communicate with the module. All attempts of non-authorised access to the module are ignored. In case of battery powered modules where the GPRS modem is inactive for most of operation time, the remote configuration changes are performed by the additional software package MT Spooler (MTS). The MTS queues the user defined tasks for each module in the system and sends them to the modules during the next connection session.
Additionally, InVentia delivers a communication driver MT Data Provider free of charge, which supports the communication with remote telemetry modules using either MT gateway, GPRS modem or router, or Internet. This driver works on a 2000/XP/2003/2008/VISTA/7 platform and makes the current data accessible via standard OPC (OLE for Process Control) interface. All types of data (polled, event triggered, time-stamped logger records) are accessible in the form of CSV/XML files or can be automatically written to any standard relational database (e.g. MS SQL Server, MSDE, Oracle) via ODBC mechanism. Such solution ensures open connectivity and easy integration with modern HMI/SCADA visualisation systems (animated graphics, trends, alarms), spreadsheets and data processing systems (billing, analysing, diagnostic and optimising systems).
