NE Link Melbourne - 4G SMS Lite alarms

The North East Link (NEL) is the largest road project in Victoria.

Our 4G SMS Lite cellular controller is part of the solution.

The NEL project is being considered as the ‘missing link’ in Melbourne’s road transport network. The project will ultimately connect the M80 motorway to the Eastern Freeway. This will connect important growth areas in the north and south-east of Melbourne. The NEL project involves upgrades to the Eastern Freeway, a dedicated Busway, more than 25 kilometres of new and upgraded cycling and walking paths, and improvements to community facilities including sports grounds.

The $11.1 billion major works contract is being delivered via a public-private partnership with an incentivised target cost (ITC), believed to be a first for Australia.

DATRAN Australia has contributed to this project using the SMS Lite cellular controller. This solution will monitor four signals in a plant room and will send alarms as text messages over the 4G cellular network.

We worked with Spark who are a multi-national consortium featuring world leading construction companies and they are one of the largest road and tunnel operators in Australia.

The popular DIN rail mount is also used simplify installation in the control panel, together with cellular antennas and DC power supplies.

The products and part numbers supplied for the project include:

PD8640-4G – SMS Lite Controller

PD8640-DIN-BRCKT – DIN Rail Mount

COL8195 – Cellular Antenna High Gain

CB-QDR-PWR – DC Power Cables

The SMS Lite, and the larger SMS Controller, are popular in multiple industries and applications all across Australia.

This post gives an outline to some of the alerts and alarms they are frequently used for.
