Open Data Port Manages Telecontrol Applications

Latest News

For data transfer via GPRS, Phoenix Contact now offers Open Data Port (ODP) – an intelligent solution to monitor and manage telecontrol stations.

By using the mobile General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), a solution is open to all applications that involve data exchange with distributed stations. The core of this data transfer includes permanent online connection, as well as invoicing the data packets exchanged according to data volume.

ODP therefore facilitates communication – based on GPRS, DSL, and Ethernet – from the master control system via the open OPC interface and harmonized components.

Data is transferred online or saved and transferred as time-stamped historical data. As sector-neutral solution, ODP can be used in classic telecontrol technology in environmental and energy-related applications.
