LAKE MARY, FLORIDA - September 10, 2009 - Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has introduced a significant data logging enhancement for its T-BOX line of SCADA system RTU products. Available in the T-BOX Wireless Monitor, T-BOX LT, and T-BOX MS RTU products, this new feature allows data archives and sampling tables to be transmitted via SMS messaging.
Commonly employed for short text messages, such as alarms and events, SMS provides inexpensive data transmission using very low power. This makes it ideal for products which use battery or solar power systems. Now process information can be transmitted with minimal impact on network and power budgets. SMS further extends RTU applications to areas in which weak cellular signal strength allows only SMS messages to be transmitted.
T-BOX is the first IP-based telemetry solution that enables the complete integration of SCADA control and communications functionality in one rugged package. It leverages easy-to-use Web technologies and inexpensive public networks for decentralized monitoring and control systems. T-BOX products offer up to 50% less total installed cost per point versus traditional SCADA/ PLC systems and permit greater organizational access to data through automated reporting and browser software.
Semaphore's T-BOX RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the broadcast, infrastructure management, oil & gas, power, transportation and water treatment and distribution industries.
