Control Solutions' i.Report VP4-2090 Global Remote Telemetry Unit is ideal for demanding remote alarm monitoring and data logging with optional GPS tracking. It includes both cellular and satellite radios built in. The VP4-2090 includes 18 hardwire sensor inputs, of which 16 are universally configurable as analog, temperature (thermistor), or discrete/dry contact inputs. Two inputs are fixed 30V inputs for battery monitoring. High speed pulse counting is provided on 2 inputs. The VP4-2090 also includes 2 discrete outputs. The VP4-2090 includes a Modbus RTU port which may operate in master or slave mode. The VP4-2090 also includes a CAN/J1939 port for applications such as engine monitoring.
Control Solutions’ i.Report Model VP4-2090 Cellular/Satellite Remote Telemetry Unit is ideal for demanding remote alarm monitoring and data logging with optional GPS tracking. It includes both cellular and satellite radios built in. The model VP4-2090 can operate on cellular only, satellite only, or cellular with satellite backup for mobile applications. The built-in Garmin GPS receiver provides tracking data for mobile applications.
The VP4-2090 includes 18 hardwire sensor inputs, of which 16 are universally configurable as analog, temperature (thermistor), or discrete/dry contact inputs. Two are fixed analog with 30V input range for directly monitoring batteries. The VP4-2090 also includes 2 discrete outputs for functions such as generator start on command or local alarm indicator.
The VP4-2090 includes a Modbus RTU port which may operate in master or slave mode. The VP4-2090 may poll multiple Modbus slaves to greatly expand I/O capability. The VP4-2090 may also operate as a slave allowing a PLC in a larger system to write data to the VP4-2090.
The VP4-2090 also includes a CAN/J1939 port for applications such as engine monitoring. The VP4-2090 can receive any standard J1939 message, including transport protocol. The VP4-2090 can initiate data read requests. The VP4-2090 can transmit J1939 messages sending data provided by the web portal or derived internally. The internal GPS data can be transmitted periodically in standard J1939 format. Message construction is completely configurable, and transport protocol is supported in both directions.
The VP4-2090 supports store and forward logging. Data will be reported at regular intervals via cellular when coverage is available. When a mobile unit leaves cellular coverage, the VP4-2090 will log data to its internal 2GB data flash, and upload stored data when service is found. Meanwhile, critical alarms and data points will be reported via satellite while non-critical events and log data are stored for later forwarding.
The VP4-2090 is configured over the air via the LogMyData web portal. Convenient templates simplify configuration of I/O points, mapping of Modbus registers, setting of alarm limits, and assignment of notifications to users.
i.CanDrawIt® is included at no additional cost with every i.Report from Control Solutions. i.CanDrawIt® works just like an electrical schematic CAD program, except you draw control programs that look like circuits. The resulting software will function like the circuit you draw. i.CanDrawIt® includes visual program simulation as well as visual live debugging where supported by the target device. Set breakpoints or step through the program one visual function block at a time. Update variables and I/O objects in simulation or live.

GPS Tracking Modes
Geo-fence: Reports as an alarm any time the device leaves a designated perimiter. User can reset perimeter for transportable equipment's new location.
Travel: Reports as an event every time the device moves a specifed distance, used for tracking mobile devices that are intended to be on the move.
