Long Distance Wireless Transmission

I've seen people use GPRS->Serial gateway devices quite sucessfully for lots of projects. There are plenty of ~$100 units like this:

that you can interface with from a standard serial port such as those found on pretty much every RT controller from NI (such as CompactRIO). You can configure it to make a TCP connection to your server elsewhere and it will automatically establish a data connection over the cell phone network and transfer the data from the TCP session though the remote serial port.

Hello BlueCheese,

 

This is exactly what i'm working on right now and i have some  questions, when using this GPRS modems can i send data to a server that i create (my server)? I'm saying this because usually this kind of devices send data to a general server that requires an identification (we have to register and pay to get it)  to access the database and this is not what i want.

 

After transferring data to my server i want to use it in my real time monitoring interface created with LabVIEW 8.6, is this possible?

 

Thank you

 

Garry

Here is the solution out of the box for all your telemetry applications http://www.sea-gmbh.com/en/products/compactrio-products/sea-crio-modules/ 

 

Those modules are built for work in a cRIO http://www.ni.com/compactrio/
