NeXGen RTU-8844

The Telescada NeXGen™ RTU-8844 Remote Terminal Unit is a powerful, flexible an economical solution for distribution substation, feeder monitoring and motor operator automation, monitoring, alarming and control. Built upon a modular and expandable framework, the NeXGen™ RTU meets the needs of distribution engineers for the monitoring and control of new distribution facilities or the upgrade of existing ones

The NeXGen RTU’s flexible design provides users with an I/O core of 8 configurable analog inputs, 8 digital status inputs and 4 Control Outputs. The NeXGen™ RTU can be expanded to add additional I/O though the networking of additional NeXGen™ modules. The NeXGen™ is an addressable distributed RTU that can be quickly expanded to meet the specific requirements of the user In additional to configurable I/O the NeXGen™ RTU serves to consolidate and transmit data from a network of IEDs (intelligent electronic devices) via its RS-232/RS-485 serial communications links. Ethernet and RS-232 remote communications ports allow for remote data transmission via radio, dial-up, cellular or fiberoptic tranceivers

A local maintenance port allows for direct interrogation and programming of the NeXGen™ RTU using the NeXGen™ NGC Maintenance Utility Software. DNP3.0 standard communications protocol allows the NeXGen™ RTU to communicate with any modern SCADA system. The NeXGen™ RTU core’s small footprint allows for quick installation on distribution panels, or mounting within a wall mount or pole top enclosure. The NeXGen™ RTU supports multiple input voltages, and complete NeXGen™ RTU, power and communications packages are available from Telescada.
