The Damocles2 1208 data acquisition units have twelve digital dry contact inputs (DI). All the digital inputs have S0 pulse counters, with a memory, to connect to water, gas, electricity or other meter types. Damocles2 1208 also controls eight digital open collector outputs (DO) and a built-in web server makes the device easy to configure.

Damocles2 1208 can be remotely monitored via the internet using the SensDesk Cloud portal or the SensDesk Mobile App (iOS or Android). The devices are designed to monitor and control digital inputs/outputs (I/O) over a network using secure M2M protocols (HTTPs, IPv6, SNMPv3). The devices can be integrated into a wide range of monitoring and control systems and support over fifty SNMP and SCADA applications. The MQTT protocol is built-in to allow integration to IoT applications.

Damocles2 TSet Kit

The Damocles2 1208 is supplied with a power adapter and a CD with manual.

Damocles2 Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions

The Damocles2 is an IoT enabled monitoring and control solution.

  • Supports data transfer via Ethernet
  • Provides quick view real-time data on the SensDesk Cloud portal
  • Sends data via email, custom software and Cloud third-party applications
  • Uses standard protocols including HTTPs, IPv6, SNMPv3 and MQTT

Damocles2 devices have an Ethernet interface and can transfer current values and buffer stored data. The data can be transmitted to the SensDesk Cloud portal using HWg-Push software or passed via HWg-PDMS software to third-party software using MQTT IO protocols and run on Microsoft Azure or Amazon AWS servers. Data can also be emailed to PDMS and downloaded from a POP3 or secured POP3S mailbox.
