Mar 13, 2013 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
CSE-Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has introduced a compact, remote terminal unit, or RTU, that integrates cyber security protection and wireless communications with SCADA functionality.
According to the company, the new TBox LT2 RTU is an all-in-one unit featuring a web server, 3G wireless communications, and a cyber security application suite, all integrated with programmable automation, alarm notification, data logging, and Ethernet communications in a single, rugged module.
TBox LT2 RTU communications include Ethernet, RS232, RS485 and USB ports, and an integral 3G wireless option. Mixed I/O configurations include 8 analog inputs, 16 digital inputs / outputs, selectable per-point, and, optionally, two analog outputs. For installations requiring additional I/O, the LT2 readily expands using compact modules interfaced via Ethernet or RS-485.
This processing platform is based on an ARM9 CPU running at 400 MHz. The memory configuration includes 32 MB Flash, 64 MB SDRAM, 1 MB SRAM, and a Micro SD card with up to 32 GB capacity. TBox systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.
