DRT-9070 Distributed Remote Terminal

Mini-RTU and IED Gateway 

The DRT-9070 Remote Terminal Unit is an economical distributed automation platform used for control, supervision, data acquisition and data reduction. The DRT-9070 can act as a mini-RTU, a distributed input-output point on your distribution network and as an Intelligent Electronic Device ( IED) data concentrator. 

The DRT-9070 maintains an internal database by scanning local hardwired inputs as well as the status and analog points within connected IEDs. These values may be polled by one or more SCADA master stations over a variety of protocols and media. Then The DRT-9070 also time tags events which are available to the SCADA system’s master station, as sequence-of-events (SOE) data. 

The DRT-9070 can be configured for communications through its RS-232 or RS-485 serial ports. Optionally it can be equipped with a network interface for communication over one or two TCP/IP based networks. Popular communications protocols are available for both the server connection ( to the master station) as well as locally to the IEDs. 

The DRT-9070 ca operate on 120 VAC service or directly from the station battery. This arrangement can also provide the battery backup for local communications equipment ( radios, routers, etc.) 

Master and IED communications ports and other parameters are easily entered with QEI’s ConfigWiz® software from any standard WIndows® laptop or PC.
