Semaphore Announces New Processors for RTU Product Line

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, is now shipping new central processor and communications processor modules for the Kingfisher Plus+ SCADA system RTU.

The CP-12 processor module features an x86 CPU and three communications ports, two of which are plug-in options. A broad variety of such options enables compatibility with practically any SCADA network. For high-availability requirements, the CP-12 also supports processor redundancy. It is compatible with Semaphore's Toolbox32 programming environment as well as the prior-generation, CP-11 processor.

The MC-12 is an intelligent, communications processor that allows expansion up to three ports per module. Like the CP-12, two of the three ports are plug-in options, which allow significant flexibility in communications networking. Using multiple communications processor modules, a Kingfisher Plus+ RTU can expand to 16 ports.

Semaphore's Kingfisher RTU series is based on an advanced, automation technology platform for SCADA applications. When equipped with the CP-30 processor, Kingfisher is the only RTU line that features an embedded programming environment that is compliant with both IEC 61131-3 and 61499 as well as an enhanced DNP3 protocol suite, security platform, complete array of communications networks and advanced functionality including redundancy. Kingfisher Plus+ is a modular RTU that offers expansion up to 16 communications ports and 1024 I/O points.

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