Semaphore Releases White Paper on PLC and RTU Applications for Remote Automation and Monitoring

LAKE MARY, FL--(Marketwire - November 23, 2010) - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has released a white paper on SCADA System automation and monitoring applications at remote locations.

The "Remote Automation and Monitoring: PLC or RTU?" white paper focuses on the economics that differentiate remote site applications and drive product designs. It is intended to bring clarity to the often confusing, PLC vs. RTU topic.

Semaphore has extensive experience in remote automation and monitoring and offers two product lines: T-BOX RTU and Kingfisher RTU.

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.

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.

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.
