The TBox range of powerful RTU solutions for remote automation and monitoring enables the complete integration of SCADA, telemetry and control functionality in a single, scalable package. By combining advanced telemetry and web capabilities, TBox RTUs simplify systems engineering and reduce installation costs by up to 50% compared to systems that combine PLC, communications and SCADA components.
Following the release of the update, Servelec Technologies’ Development and Support Director, Matthew Hawkridge said: "This latest release for our TWinSoft configuration application includes new features and improvements to existing tools which make the powerful TBox range of RTUs more secure and easy to use.
“For example, the security improvements mean that TBox devices are now tested to Achilles 1 standard, providing our critical infrastructure clients peace of mind. While the HTTP web-service interface is a powerful new feature allowing the user to query their network of TBox devices and enabling machine-to-machine (M2M) communication.”
