New Event Engine to RAM Industrial Cellular RTUs
York, Pa. – May 5, 2015 – Red Lion Controls, the global experts in communication, monitoring and control for industrial automation and networking, today announced its Sixnet® series RAM® industrial cellular RTUs now feature a web-based user-configurable event engine that can trigger I/O and relays or send SMS text messages based on real-time operational data. With connectivity options such as I/O, serial, Ethernet and optional Wi-Fi, RAM RTUs easily integrate with existing equipment to provide a remote monitoring M2M solution that performs reliable local control and alerts personnel of critical events.
With an intuitive web-based, menu-driven interface that requires no knowledge of programming languages, the powerful RAM event engine can quickly be configured to trigger actions when pre-defined alarm values are met. For example, if a tank level is too high or a pressure level is out of range, the RAM event engine will not only cycle a relay to stop a pump or close a valve, but can also send text message notifications to alert when actions should be taken. This function helps automation engineers, technicians, production managers and network operators make critical decisions.
“With the addition of the web-based event engine, the RAM cellular RTU becomes an all-in-one platform for remote monitoring and control,” said Paul Bunnell, product manager at Red Lion Controls. “This versatile solution takes the complexity out of configuring events and notification without requiring additional equipment.”
By providing data visibility, control and real-time notifications on field-deployed equipment and processes, the RAM platform enables vertical markets such as oil and gas, utilities, water/wastewater and alternative energy to take advantage of the benefits associated with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). With hardened metal enclosures, a wide operating temperature range and industry certifications to ensure safe operation in hazardous locations, RAM cellular RTUs securely monitor remote devices via 4G LTE cellular communications to enable reliable operation in critical environments.
