Kintronic Labs is out with a Web-accessible directional AM antenna system transmitter and pattern selection controller.
The Model KTL-WAC/PLC/24VDC system allows for a station staff to bring up a replica of the front panel of a directional antenna control system via a browser and enables the operator to select a transmitter or pattern with a click of the computer mouse.
Access to the controller Web port will require a user-defined password. Utilizing a software-driven programmable logic controller to emulate standard relay logic, the controller will require less rack space than a standard relay logic controller.
Features include customer-specified alarm notification via e-mail; alarm history; automatic pattern and/or transmitter switching with atomic clock synchronization; and custom operational reports in a variety of formats. The system is configurable for up to 12 towers and five patterns.
