RTCU-MX2i eco
Remote Telemetry and Control Unit
The RTCU-MX2i eco is a low cost
version of the popular RTCU-MX2i
eco+. With a reduced feature set
compared to the RTCU-MX2i eco+ the
product has a perfect balance between
price and performance, and together the
two products offers a unique platform
for all kind of applications. The pricelevel of the RTCU MX2i eco belongs to
the entry-level segment, but the
advanced features are in a league of its
The RTCU-MX2i eco product allows rapid development of custom specified applications combining mobile tracking
/ control / monitoring / datalogging with advanced communication techniques alarm / messages send to / from the
unit as SMS (both as SMS and PDU) messages or via data-transfer directly to / from a Windows application. The
RTCU-MX2i eco includes a full TCP/IP stack and therefore fully support the GPRS technology. Using the Logic IO
proprietary VSMS (Virtual SMS) technology SMS, GPRS and Datacalls (CSD) merges together allowing any RTCU
application that uses SMS-messages to transparently send / receive messages using either SMS, GPRS or Datacall
without any changes to the software already developed.
The RTCU-MX2i eco is fully programmable using the user-friendly Integrated Development Environment (RTCU
IDE) running under Windows. In the environment the complete application is developed, simulated and finally
transferred to the unit via a standard serial port, or alternatively using the GSM Datacall / GPRS capability. Full
software backward compatibility to previous generation of RTCU units, so that already written/tested applications
can be reused.
The advanced power-management features on the RTCU-MX2i eco allows the unit to stay in power-saving modes
for a longer period of time still being connected to the GSM network and capable of waking up on for example GSM
activity, change of digital inputs or a vibration sensor!
The on-board high performance 16-channel GPS receiver makes implementation of location based applications a
These features open up for the use of the RTCU-MX2i eco in exciting new application areas where extremely low
power consumption and flexible wake-up conditions are a crucial parameter for successful product integration.
Some of the application areas includes:
Fleet management system.
Mobile datalogging applications.
Alarm / Security systems
Mobile tracking applications
Asset management.
Your applications...
The RTCU-IDE Integrated Development Environment for
the RTCU, is an easy-to-use program for all aspects in
the development of applications for the RTCU. The
RTCU-IDE contains a broad range of features, such as
project control, comprehensive online help, built-in
syntax highlighting editor, code generating wizard, voice
recorder etc. A built-in simulator enables complete
simulation of all features on the RTCU: GSM, GPRS,
SMS messaging, GPS, Analog / Digital I/O etc. A remote
update feature allows the application developer to
download new versions of a program, firmware or voice
messages to a remote RTCU, via a modem connection or
over GPRS. Together, all of these features enables the
user to cut development time to a minimum.
