Remote Terminal Units for every purpose

Monitor widely dispersed measurement points with Remote Terminal Units

Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) are located at telecontrol plant substations and monitor widely dispersed measurement points. Different RTUs are used depending on the complexity of the task. In our portfolio, you’ll find compact SIMATIC RTU3000C RTUs  with their own power supply that also operate reliably in the most remote regions and under the harshest environmental conditions. Alternatively, you can choose modular RTUs based on SIMATIC controllers for flexibility and the highest performance. They efficiently and reliably monitor and control even the most complex plants.

Telecontrol: Efficient remote control systems

Industrial process plants often extend over large areas – sometimes even across national borders. For reliable monitoring, operators require safe and economical access to their widely distributed plants. Take advantage of our tailored and efficient remote solutions for the process industries and public infrastructures. Our products are based on SIMATIC, the world’s leading automation system. This makes them part of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA), our open system architecture for consistent, plant-wide automation.
