Compact, energy-self-sufficient, rugged
The RTUs have a flexible power supply concept. They can be operated with up to 2 x 3 redundant battery modules or connected to an accumulator with a solar panel or a 12–24-V DC power source. They operate reliably even under harsh conditions ranging from -40 to +70° Celsius. A protective external enclosure also allows them to be used in areas prone to flooding (IP68).
Telecontrol protocols supported:
- TeleControl Basic
- SINAUT ST7
- IEC 60870-5-104
Typical applications include data logging, leak detection, monitoring pumping stations and water reservoirs, monitoring liquid levels in tanks and silos, monitoring agricultural irrigation systems, flood protection, and buoy position detection.
Telecontrol and cloud connection in a single device
With firmware V5.0, the RTU3000C telecontrol modules can be connected via MQTT to all standard cloud systems, such as MindSphere, Microsoft Azure, and AWS. In addition to telecontrol, this expands the range of possible applications for SIMATIC RTU3000C to include cloud applications. In addition to monitoring the process data of the RTU (Remote Terminal Unit), you can also exploit all the benefits of cloud systems, including (big) data analyses for improving process quality, error detection, and preventive maintenance in combination with data from other sources.
Reliable even in the most remote locations
Our RTUs record measured values from connected sensors and transmit them securely and wirelessly to the control center via an OpenVPN tunnel or e-mail. The communication parameters are freely adjustable. If the measured values drop below or exceed a defined value, the RTU reports it immediately via text message or e-mail alert. The devices offer integrated inputs and outputs. An extension board makes it possible to connect eight additional sensors via HART Multidrop/Modbus RTU.
The RTUs can perform data preprocessing to reduce data volume and simplify data evaluation in the control center. Adjustments to the configuration and firmware updates can be performed from the control center using a standard browser. With firmware V5.0, MQTT is now also supported.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
