RAM – Remote assets. Local control.
Pushing control to the network’s edge adds more than operational reliability, it also helps to reduce costs. Designed to control remote assets such as pumps, PLCs and other automation devices located in extreme environments, Red Lion’s rugged RAM cellular RTUs seamlessly work with existing equipment and can be configured to automatically send notifications if status changes.
Rugged Industrial Design – Developed with industrial environments in mind, RAM cellular RTUs are enclosed in hardened metal DIN-rail or panel mount enclosures to offer a wide -40° to 75°C operating temperature range, UL Class I, Division 2 listing and high tolerance to shock and vibration. These rugged environmental specifications ensure reliable operation wherever your equipment is deployed.
Built-In Event Engine – With an intuitive web-based, menu-driven interface that requires no knowledge of programming languages, the RAM event engine can quickly be configured to trigger I/O or send SMS messages based on operational data. Whether a tank level is too high or a valve pressure level out of range, the RAM event engine will take action and send SMS text message notifications to keep you in the know.
Multi-Carrier Support – RAM customers can now simplify deployment and reduce inventory costs by selecting or switching between a list of preconfigured North American wireless carriers that include AT&T, BELL Mobility, Rogers, TELUS and Verizon Wireless.
Connectivity Options – RAM cellular RTUs natively supporting Modbus and DNP3 protocols include built-in digital and analog I/O. Available with a split-LAN (WAN/LAN) architecture, RAM RTUs feature up to two 10/100Base-T(X) Ethernet ports and support serial-to-IP conversions through on-board RS-232 and optional RS-485 serial ports to securely monitor remote devices and reduce costly site visits.
Secure Networking – Designed to deliver secure communications to remote locations, RAM cellular RTUs support robust security features such as VPN tunnels, port forwarding, stateful firewall, packet filtering, data encryption and an Access Control List (ACL).
Powerful Management – RAM cellular RTUs can be managed locally through direct device connection or remotely via SixView Manager® software. With a web-based console and customized dashboard, users can remotely access, configure and manage critical device information from a central location to increase productivity and reduce overall cost.
