Semaphore Releases GSM-R Communication Module for RTU Product Line

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 16, 2011) - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has released a GSM-R communication module for the T-BOX MS RTU product line.

GSM-R, Global System for Mobile Communications-Railway, is an international, wireless communication standard for railway applications. Developed in Europe, GSM-R has been adopted by all members of the European Union and countries in Eurasia and Africa.

The Semaphore module, MSR-GSM-R, is among few GSM-R offerings for remote terminal unit (RTU) products in SCADA system applications. It extends T-BOX MS applicability in the railway industry, in which the T-BOX product line currently has a very strong, installed base.

T-BOX employs an innovative, decentralized architecture that enables the complete integration of programmable automation, alarm management, data logging, and IP telemetry in a single, rugged package. Simple yet powerful platforms leverage web technologies and push messaging via e-mail, SMS text, and FTP. T-BOX systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.

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.
