SmartLink provides a perfect connection with your gauges.

The individual modules ensure a safe link and the scalability
ensures the perfect fit to meet current and future needs.
SmartLink provides a physical layer conversion from serial
RS232C/RS485 GPU communication to Bi-Phase Mark GPU
fieldbus. With its modular design SmartLink can be expanded
from one to three fieldbuses of the worlds standard field
communication in tank gauging, Honeywell Enrafs GPU Bi-Phase Mark. The GPU/BPM
fieldbus guarantees a stable, long distance, galvanic isolated digital communication link
for integration of Enraf field equipment, avoiding grounding issues and protecting against
damages resulting from lightning strikes on the field communication lines. The compact design
uses minimum footprint in junction boxes or auxiliary cabinets. The unit is DIN-rail mountable
for easy combination with other auxiliary devices like barriers, isolators and radio modems.

Three types of modules are available:

The auto selecting power supply module PSA ensures correct power for all modules. All modules are powered from and
communicating through the backbone of the SmartLink, reducing wiring.
The host communication module HCM-GPU for the SmartLink provides serial GPU connection for host computer systems.
The standard HCM-GPU module has an isolated RS232/RS485 connection via screw terminal. Alternatively a non-isolated
sub-D9 RS232/RS422 for connection via modem is available. Via the HCM-GPU communication ports the SmartLink
modules can be configured. LEDs at the front indicate firmware health and communication activity with the host system.
The FCM-BPM module for the SmartLink provides Bi-Phase Mark fieldbus to Honeywell Enraf gauges. The BPM fieldbus
is carrying the GPU protocol over long distances to multiple gauges on one twisted pair of cables. This fieldbus provides
galvanic isolation, preventing grounding problems and protects against high voltages like lighting strikes. The field proven
GPU protocol ensures safe transport of data between the gauges and the computer systems. LEDs at the front indicate
firmware health and communication activity data with the connected gauges.
