Messenger is a new OEM solution

22 May 2008

Antx has released the Messenger, an industrial monitoring system that combines, GPS, GSM, CDMA cellular or satellite modem, controller area network (CAN) bus communication and alarm notification.

The Messenger is an OEM solution that monitors up to 32 parameter group numbers (PGNs) using the J1939 protocol at rates up to 1.25Mbit/sec. Individual values are extracted from each PGN, used in calculations, compared to limits and passed to internet-based applications, using the customers' choice of UDP or TCP protocols.

Enclosed in a Deutsch industrial watertight enclosure, the Messenger fits in the palm of the hand. Typical monitored conditions are: diagnostic messages, rpm, engine hours, oil and coolant temperatures and pressures, location and fuel level.

US-based Antx specialises in real-time monitoring, control and alarm notification systems.
