How do we use an RTU?

EMR use RTUs throughout many of our client networks to monitor field-based assets based on digital or analogue technologies.  This data is then transmitted back to a central monitoring station or SCADA.

Our RTUs interface to multiple master stations and IEDs (Intelligent Electronic Device) with different communication media (usually serial (RS232, RS485, RS422) or Ethernet).

An RTU may support standard protocols (Modbus, IEC 60870-5-101/103/104, DNP3, WITS, IEC 60870-6-ICCP, IEC 61850 etc.) to interface any third-party software.

What Our Customers Say About Us

This project plays a key role in protecting the fundamentals of what we do, i.e. safeguarding the public water supply and treating wastewater. Where we have onsite telemetry, we can respond a lot quicker to water supply issues by making remote manual interventions to correct problems.  And the move towards standardisation of our RTUs means less maintenance, lower stocks of replacement units and it helps the knowledgebase of the staff that look after these assets.
