New Semaphore Case Studies Describe SCADA Solutions for Railroad, Energy Management and Water & Wastewater Treatment

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Now available from Semaphore are three case studies, which describe recent installations of its T-BOX line of SCADA system products in railroad transportation, energy management and water and wastewater treatment.

Each case study shows how a T-BOX RTU (remote terminal unit) has fulfilled information reporting requirements, decreased operating costs and significantly improved process operations.

For the Evansville Water and Sewer Utility (EWSU), InGen, a Semaphore authorized solutions provider, has installed a water and wastewater treatment system that uses a T-BOX RTU to cost effectively meet EPA reporting requirements for combined sewage overflow (CSO). T-BOX RTU products are used for controls throughout the EWSU system as part of InGen's complete SCADA solution that ranges from process monitoring and automation through IT.

A second case describes how small businesses are using the T-BOX RTU to save up to 20% on energy costs. Energy management system applications in T-BOX supervise operations during off-hours, opening and closing times, and peak times to minimize energy use. T-BOX also efficiently provides information on all operations to users, anywhere, anytime, and contributes to continuous improvement.

A third case study focuses on a railroad SCADA transportation application. Railway switchgear systems are characterized by high electrical interference and require equipment that is suitable for outdoor installation. In this application, a T-BOX MS RTU was programmed by the end customer using Microsoft Automation and uses an integral web server for local diagnostics.

T-BOX is the first, IP-based telemetry solution that enables the complete integration of SCADA, control and communications functionality in one rugged package. It leverages easy-to-use Web technologies and inexpensive public networks for decentralized monitoring and control systems. T-BOX products offer up to 50% less total installed cost per point versus traditional SCADA/ PLC systems and permit greater organizational access to data through automated reporting and browser software.

Semaphore's T-BOX RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the broadcast, infrastructure management, oil & gas, power, transportation and water treatment and distribution industries.
