RTU C50

RTU C50

RTU C50 Key Features

The RTU50 architecture is designed with a flexibility that allows users to configure Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) into many different configurations, solving many control system requirements. The same equipment, software and networks are used as building blocks to produce a fully integrated system based on the following concepts:

      • Flexible I/O expansion from a single RTU50 to multiple chassis’ using user configuration utilities
      • Analog, digital, or fiber-optic communications via multiple communications ports, each using different communications protocols.
      • Intelligent I/O modules for high performance processing
      • High speed peer-to-peer distributed automation over a dual-ring optical network
      • Global database for the RTU network
      • “Check-before-operate” security on all controls
      • Applications Software Library for a wide range of control system applications

Advantages

      • Distributed processing for high availability and diversity in Electric Power Substation architectures
      • Flexible Power Supply
      • Highly reliable operation over wide temperature and electrical noise ranges
      • Support 28, 48 & 129 V DC Source
      • Optonet (Link to other RTU)
      • I/O Modules

Data management

      • Real-time database:
        • Intrinsic data functions: high-speed, event-driven preconfigured functionality, often used for implicit conversions of I/O information
        • Calculations: allows programming of up to 3 calculation tasks, each written as a state machine or procedural logic using dedicated state and logic language [SALL]
        • OptoNet interface: provides most unit functionality, supporting transparent transmission of real-time database from node to node
        • IEC 61580 client stack: separate stack process allows IEC 61850 client services to operate
        • IEC 61580 server stack: separate stack process allows IEC61850 server services to operate
      • Database sizes up to 20,000 distributed points
      • Ability to accept incoming data, record changes in any change-driven protocol stacks with a time-based comparison; database supported by flash-based file system at startup and runtime
      • Global database over multiple connected nodes
