Semaphore Adds RTD Interface to SCADA RTU Product Line

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - July 31, 2008) - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has introduced a resistance temperature detector (RTD) interface for its T-BOX line of SCADA system products. The MS-6RTD interface module is compatible with a T-BOX MS Modular System and accommodates a broad range of two-wire and three-wire RTD temperature sensors.

Direct connection of RTDs to T-BOX MS simplifies installation and is particularly cost-effective for processes using multiple temperature measurements. Used with one or more MS-6RTD modules, T-BOX MS is especially suitable to applications in energy management, infrastructure management, power generation and utilities.

In addition to process control, T-BOX performs alarm management and data logging and uses push technology to keep multiple recipients fully informed on the status of all assets. Push messaging includes IP forwarding, e-mail with attached files, and SMS text. Via an integral web server, T-BOX serves live and historical information on the Internet or an intranet.

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.
