Semaphore Brief Describes RTU Applications in SCADA Systems for Natural Gas Utilities

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has released a technical document with information on applications of Kingfisher RTU products for SCADA systems in the natural gas utility industry.

"Natural Gas Utility SCADA Using Kingfisher" describes how the Kingfisher product family cost-effectively automates processes, operates wide area SCADA networks and provides alarm management and database management in a rugged platform that is designed for remote site installations. The document is available on the Semaphore website,

The Kingfisher RTU series is based on an advanced, automation technology platform for SCADA applications. 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.

The contemporary Kingfisher product line includes the Kingfisher Plus+ and G30 models. Kingfisher Plus+ is an advanced, modular RTU that offers expansion up to 1000 I/O points. The G30 is a compact RTU that extends the full capabilities of Semaphore's Kingfisher Plus product line to small SCADA system applications requiring up to 32 I/O points.

Semaphore's T-BOX and Kingfisher 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.
