Data Logging with Immediate Access
N/ANow you can perform data logging and get an immediate report-without going to the site.
RACO's Catalyst® monitors up to 256 points to provide extensive data and event logging capabilities. Featuring up to five megabytes of on-board memory, the system can monitor data samples, alarms, channel state changes, and configuration changes. At any time, you can obtain the status of level and temperature indicators, flow meters, switches, annunciator panels, motors, pumps, compressors, PLCs, SCADA systems, and other devices.
Constant Communication Using Any Source
N/ADownload a status report today…be alerted of alarm conditions…change a parameter…any time, using virtually any communications source. With Catalyst®, you're always in touch-via phone, fax, e-mail, voice mail, pager, or cellular networks. For general or keyword- selectable information, contact Catalyst®. One of your pumps is down. Catalyst® contacts up to 96 user destinations, communicating the alarm location and status in a voice message. Or Catalyst® can report the condition to a central computer.
Versatile Inputs and Interfaces
N/ACatalyst® features 4 standard internal inputs that are easily configured to sense digital or analog signals, and 56 remote channel inputs that are expandable to 256.
The system interfaces with any PLC, or with any other device using Modicon’s Modbus protocol, using only RS232 communications.
Easy Programming and Upgradeability
N/ACatalyst® is easily programmed- even from remote locations-with a free download of RACO Alarmware® This software allows users to quickly set up all monitoring, reporting, and control functions. A PIN-based security system safeguards all settings. Upgrades are simply downloaded and may be accessed from the Internet, so you can get the most current functionality and features without ever having to remove the unit from service.
