Introduction

SMS Alert Module sends out alerts to industrial automation, building automation, fire safety, and similar applications, where the timely alert to multiple people is important. SMS alert module has a standard Modbus TCP/IP interface which makes it compatible with most of SCADAs and PLCs etc. Based on the alarm, it sends pre-configured SMS text to pre-configured mobile numbers.
