IP Telemetry’s Spread Spectrum Radio Option

Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has introduced an integral, spread spectrum radio option for the T-BOX LT compact remote terminal unit (RTU) and SCADA system. T-BOX LT is claimed to be ideal for decentralized applications where its push and Web technologies enable high performance, economical implementation and operation. According to the company, this spread spectrum radio cost-effectively extends license-free communications to TBOX LT applications in areas lacking cellular or land line telephone coverage. Semaphore says the T-BOX product family is the first IP-based telemetry solution that enables complete integration of SCADA, control, and communications functionality in one rugged package. The LT model is suited for installations that may require up to 32 I/O points. T-BOX LT incorporates full Web server technology with SMS reporting and remote control to provide real-time access through a standard Web browser. Operators can receive alarms and communicate with their sites remotely using a mobile device such as a cell phone, laptop or PDA. Automatic alarm escalation allows key maintenance personnel to receive any unacknowledged alarms.
