Whether there is a leaking pipe or a damaged power grid breaker miles away from the control centre, operators need to know about it as soon as possible. The sooner they get the information, the faster they can fix the problem and avoid negative consequences.

Find peace of mind in technology that integrates seamlessly and connects to a variety of equipment ensuring reliable, well-timed process automation and monitoring over a large area. The versatile ACE1000 delivers the data communication and processing needed for a diverse set of applications, without having to replace current operational technologies. In a new, compact package, the ACE1000 is the RTU that will facilitate greater productivity and safety quickly and easily.

Intelligence simplified

Complicated control processes can be time consuming and difficult to track. The ACE1000 allows easy automation of processes such as multiple high speed control loops, event capture and data storage.

The ACE1000’s Linux operating system allows for simplified programming, so systems can be adapted to existing applications, built from the ground up, without the typical complexity of scada systems. Connect to operational technologies seamlessly and transmit information efficiently with the RTU’s extensive common data protocol support combined with enhanced MDLC protocol.

Communicate effortlessly

The ACE1000’s unique communication capabilities allow systems to transmit data over a variety of media including analog/digital two-way radio, dial-up modem, point-to-point microwave, 3G/4G public or private and Ethernet simultaneously. The expandable memory also provides the ability to store data locally for back-up purposes.

The RTU-central and RTU-RTU communications, along with advanced networking abilities, can be used to pass data between RTUs in the system so users do not need to purchase additional repeaters or expensive antennas. Its communication flexibility gives the freedom to customise systems cost effectively.
