The multi-protocol aspect of the RTU32 series makes these controllers the propper choice for SCADA & Substation Automation applications as RTU, Bay Controller, protocol converter, or simply as substation controller PLC or PAC.
Speaking of protocols, SCADA engineers usually pick DNP3 or IEC 101, while Substation specialists prefer IEC60870-5-104, or IEC61850. For IEDs, IEC103 or Modbus are utilized the most. RTU32 series support all these protocols and more.
The I/O expansion facility along with the powerful CPU, large memory, and multi-thread processing makes an RTU32 perfect for medium size projects. The networking quality makes the combination of RTU32s capable for any project size.
The convenience added by Win CE Operating System, IEC61131 programming environment, embedded web server and remote programming is an additional advantage.
RTU32 series can readily work in redundant configuration, making them the right solution for dmanding projects.
RTU32 series are versatile RTU/PLC/PAC controllers providing an open and flexible platform for a variety of applications in water/wastewater , power systems , and industries. They come in different models with many common features and some differences to best fit different applications.
