New mini scada RTU for data acquisition

April 2017 Data Acquisition & Telemetry

Define Instruments has released the Zen RTU Mini, a data acquisition unit for industrial analog signals. A breakthrough for DAQ applications requiring the collation of multiple signals and signal types from industrial sensors, the Zen RTU Mini collates up to 16 signals for direct routing to scada systems and PLCs.

Measuring just 10 x 3,5 x 12 cm, the compact Zen RTU Mini fits into smaller enclosures and saves DIN rail space, reducing the cost of installation. “For many applications available space is a primary concern,” explains business development manager, Rolla Afrogheh. “Every additional square centimetre adds cost, from the size of the enclosure to the footprint on the DIN rail itself.”

Running cables from sensors to DAQ units is expensive and reduces the portability of the application. As a remedy, the Zen RTU Mini has a wireless option so customers retain flexibility and are free from the cost of cabling. For optimum data acquisition flexibility the unit features universal input, accepting a wide range of signal types including thermocouple, RTD, mA, mV, V, frequency and pulse. This reduces the number of separate instruments required, further reducing costs and keeping things simple for maintenance and troubleshooting. Each input channel of the Zen RTU Mini is galvanically isolated, ensuring a clean and steady signal for high reliability in harsh industrial environments. Additionally the unit has four digital inputs and an RS-485 Modbus/RTU port. An Ethernet port can be selected as Modbus TCP.
