CSE-Semaphore to Demonstrate High-Performance RTU With Integral Cyber Security at AWWA ACE13

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - At the ACE13 Annual Conference & Exposition, CSE-Semaphore, a CSE Global company, will demonstrate a new SCADA remote terminal unit (RTU) that integrates powerful cyber security protection. CSE-Semaphore's TBox LT2 RTU will be featured along with its other TBox and Kingfisher RTU product lines at booth 10079. ACE13 will take place June 9 - 12 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO.

The new TBox LT2 RTU is an all-in-one SCADA system featuring a web server, 3G wireless communications, and a complete cyber security application suite, all tightly integrated with programmable automation, alarm notification, data logging, and Ethernet communications in a single, rugged module. The TBox RTU line provides up to 50% cost savings over other systems that seek to combine PLC, communications, and SCADA components.

The integrated cyber security suite meets the growing need for cyber security in all SCADA systems. The TBox Security Suite includes authentication, encryption, a firewall, HTTP Secure, SFTP, SSH, TLS/SSL, and a virtual private network. For reporting within IT networks, TBox LT2 also provides a broad implementation of the simple network management protocol (SMNP).

The TBox LT2 RTU the latest addition to line of RTUs built on CSE-Semaphore's decentralized TBox architecture. The architecture enables the complete integration of programmable automation, alarm management, data logging and IP telemetry in a single, rugged package. The platform leverages web technologies and push messaging via e-mail, SMS text, and FTP. TBox systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.

The Kingfisher RTU line provides an advanced automation platform for SCADA system solutions, including redundant configurations, intelligent I/O, and open programming that is compliant with IEC 61131-3. Kingfisher is also the first RTU product line that is compliant with IEC 61499, the distributed processing and interoperability extension to IEC 61131-3. Kingfisher systems are well suited to large, demanding measurement and control applications that employ central stations.
