Weishaupt WCM-COM communications module for plant monitoring via internet and mobile phone

The new WCM-COM communications module makes it possible to remotely monitor, interrogate, parameterise and log data from Weishaupt heating systems.

The main customers for the new Weishaupt WCM-COM communications module are district heating providers, housing assiciations, and authorities that run public building complexes such as swimming pools or schools. They install the system in order to be able to optimise the operation of their equipment after centrally analysing settings and usage data. Any potential faults can be quickly identified and rectified – ideally before users even notice any effect on their comfort.

Weishaupt's communications module also enables individual home owners and holiday-home owners to monitor and control their heating using a PC or a mobile phone. Operating conditions and temperatures can also be called up and displayed graphically.

Each WCM-COM incorporates a GSM/GPRS modem, a microSD memory card, and a web server. The module is controlled using a normal web browser, no special software is required.

Communication can be by means of:

  • Direct connection to a computer via a USB or network cable
  • The building's internal computer network via LAN and router or via the internet
  • GPRS mobile phone network using a pre-configured SIM card

The WCM-COM's three additional switching outputs and five digital inputs add to its versatility. The switching outputs can be used to activate an additional heat generator, for example. The inputs can also be used for external devices, such as reporting the activation of an alarm, for example, or as meter inputs for meters with pulsed outputs. There is also an M-Bus input available to which up to 10 M-Bus meters can be connected.
