CSE-Semaphore Announces RTU Programming Environment
Press release date: December 4, 2012
CSE-Semaphore, a CSE Global company, announces first shipments of TWinSoft Suite version 11 for TBox remote terminal unit (RTU) products.
TWinSoft 11 provides a menu-driven environment for programming in IEC 61131-3 Ladder Diagram as well as function blocks and Basic. In addition, TWinSoft Suite includes TWinSoft Automation, which is an environment that allows users to interact with such Microsoft applications as Excel and Visual Basic rather than process automation languages.
Via simple, menu interactions, TWinSoft allows users to rapidly configure the IP / web / telemetry technology platform in TBox RTU products. This technology features an integral web server and push technology via e-mail, FTP, and SMS text messaging.
The key update provided in version 11 of TWinSoft is CSE-Semaphore's WebForm Studio 2.0. With WebForm Studio 2.0, users can build live process displays that are compatible across all web-enabled devices including smart phones, tablets and PCs. All information in a TBox -- alarms, live information, and historical data -- is available to PC and mobile device users anywhere.
With WebForm Studio 2.0, there is no expensive software licensing. The environment is available at no additional cost with TWinSoft Suite version 11.
CSE-Semaphore's TBox 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. TBox systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.
CSE-Semaphore's RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the asset management, broadcast / telecom, oil & gas, power, transportation, and water / wastewater industries.
