Provides the features of both a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) and a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). If the application loaded into the CPU is simple, then MOSCAD-M functions as an RTU; if the application implements a decision-making code, then MOSCAD-M functions as a PLC.
Plug-in specialised I/O modules provide connectivity to digital and analogue sensors and provide relay and analogue outputs. Connectivity via RS-232 and RS-485 ports capable of serial data communication is also available.
Motorola Data Link Communication (MDLC) Protocol
A modern and powerful data communications protocol based on the International Standards Organisation's seven-layer protocol recommendation. It was created to be particularly robust on crowded, shared, two-way radio communication circuits. Its seven-layer OSI/ISO-compatible structure allows powerful network functions.
Designed to be installed within equipment enclosures provided for pre-existing equipment, already at your site.
Diverse networks supported
MOSCAD-M commonly uses two-way radio for the communication channel. Operation on conventional, trunked or other specialised communication network supported. When two-way radio is not preferred, dial-up or leased wireline or Ethernet (10-base-T Intranet) communications is supported.
Connects directly to VHF, UHF, 800 and 900 MHz trunked and conventional radios.
MOSCAD-M is tailored to satisfy specific system requirements. Typical applications include remote monitoring and control of valves and pumps, monitoring of tank levels, pipeline cathodic protection, rain and flood, environmental pollution, chemical spill, radioactive radiation and more.
In Power Save mode, a unique capability essential for battery or solar-powered remote sites, low power consumption is achieved by providing power only to the circuits and elements activated by an application program.
