Smith-Link TM

Smith-Link---web-a
Smith Engineering is pleased to announce, SMITH-LINK TM, a replacement system for remote monitoring and alarm signaling directly to Smith Engineering DI exchange schedulers.  We can monitor incoming alarms and values from a remote site that calls for a tank exchange when the set points for that system have been exceeded. SMITH-LINK TM allows us to dispatch the exchange trucks more efficiently with time and date stamped alarms. It also allows the customer to spend less time monitoring the system parameters. This is a win, win situation for both Smith Engineering and the customer. To answer the questions of security when connected to the customers Ethernet, the cellular router has a firewall that blocks all incoming traffic.

 

Option 1:  For call out to Smith Engineering only. The Smith-LinkTM connects the customer Ethernet to the DNS server. It then connects directly by IP to the FTP server at Smith Engineering.

Option 2:  Connects by a cellular router directly to the Smith Engineering FTP server. This option is not connected to the customer’s Ethernet.

Option 3: Mounted in a separate remote panel that contains its own PLC controller. The PLC is wired to the existing panel to obtain the needed alarms and values. The remote panel calls out directly by cell router to the Smith Engineering FTP server.

Option 4: Mounted in a separate remote panel that uses the existing PLC controller. The remote panel connects to the PLC and calls out directly by cell router to the Smith Engineering FTP server. It will also connect to the customers Ethernet to enable the customers BMS to monitor the alarms received from the PLC.

Option 5:  Mounted in a separate remote panel that contains its own PLC controller. The remote panel PLC is wired to the monitors and or existing PLC to obtain the required alarms and values. It connects to the PLC and calls out directly by cell router to the Smith Engineering FTP server. It will also connect to the customers Ethernet to enable the customers BMS to monitor the alarms received from the PLC.

Option 6: The remote systems that have their own PLC have the ability to change out the GE PLC for an Allen Bradley PLC with Ethernet. This enable the customer to monitor the system more securely if they feel they could be accessed remotely.
