Remote data reading modem MCL 5.10

MCL 5.10 is a compact data readout and transmission controller with internal quad-band GSM/GPRS 3G modem. It is used to remotely transmit electricity meter data using wireless mobile network (GSM) connection. MCL 5.10 is the most popular NAVITUS LT product, which is widely used in utilities’ automated meter data collection systems not only in Lithuania but also in other countries. The controller can be mounted on 35mm DIN rail or installed under the terminal cover of electricity meter.

MCL 5.10 controller works as a transparent communication interface converter. It does not analyze nor edit any data. Because of this it can be used with electricity meters of various manufacturers.

MCL 5.10 supports automatic network provider selection according to inserted SIM card. The controller also automatically changes communication technology (2G or 3G) according to measured communication signal strength on the installation site.

Other advantages of the controller are „Passive client“ – a solution which allows the controller to work with dynamic IP addresses, automatic message sending about the loss or appearance of supply power, the ability of configuration using SMS messages and multiple communication sessions support. The number of features may change according to modification.
