High-Performance, Web 2.0-Enabled RTU From CSE-Semaphore Features Cyber Security Suite and Integral 3G Wireless Communications

LAKE MARY, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- CSE-Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has introduced a compact, remote terminal unit (RTU) that integrates powerful cyber security protection and wireless communications with complete, high-performance SCADA functionality. The new TBox LT2 RTU is an all-in-one unit featuring a web server, 3G wireless communications, and a complete cyber security application suite, all tightly integrated with programmable automation, alarm notification, data logging, and Ethernet communications in a single, rugged module. The system is available for immediate shipping.

Enabling this all-in-one integration is the innovative, decentralized architecture on which CSE Semaphore's TBox RTU line is built. This provides up to 50% cost savings over other systems that seek to combine PLC, communications, and SCADA components. The self-contained CSE-Semaphore system provides everything needed to create high-performance yet economical automation and monitoring of installations and enables easy creation of innovative push and multi-platform communications strategies. Users have complete access to alarms, live conditions, and historical data on their mobile devices, tablets, and PCs -- anytime and anywhere.

TBox LT2 RTU communications include Ethernet, RS232, RS485 and USB ports, and an integral 3G wireless option.. Mixed I/O configurations include 8 analog inputs, 16 digital inputs / outputs, selectable per-point, and, optionally, two analog outputs. For installations requiring additional I/O, the LT2 readily expands using compact modules interfaced via Ethernet or RS-485. This highly scalable, future-proof processing platform is based on an ARM9 CPU running at 400 MHz. The memory configuration includes 32 MB Flash, 64 MB SDRAM, 1 MB SRAM, and a Micro SD card with up to 32 GB capacity. TBox systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.

To help users take full advantage of the new capabilities of this integrated RTU offering, CSE-Semaphore has devised a unique, web page editor to manage the content for its web server. Trademarked as WebForm™ Studio 2.0, the new software unlocks the potential of web-enabled automation and monitoring. Instead of producing device-specific apps, CSE-Semaphore has deployed Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX), the agnostic technology of reference for Web 2.0. Without writing code, TBox LT2 users can build device-independent Web pages that include vectorized dynamic objects from an extensive library. The web pages are compatible with all browsers (Chrome, Firefox, IE9, Opera, Safari), all operating systems (Android, iOS, Linux, Windows) and, therefore, virtually all smart phones and tablets.

The integrated cyber security suite meets the growing need for cyber security in all SCADA systems. The TBox Security Suite includes authentication, encryption, a firewall, HTTP Secure, SFTP, SSH, TLS/SSL, and a virtual private network. For reporting within IT networks, TBox LT2 also provides a broad implementation of the simple network management protocol (SMNP).

CSE-Semaphore's RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the asset management, broadcast / telecom, oil & gas, power, transportation, and water / wastewater industries.

Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the backbone of their business. Though, IoT is far more complex than most firms expected with a majority of IoT projects having failed. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief IoTologist at Wipro, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the process of IoTifying the existing technology portfolios and business models to adopt and leverage IoT. He will delve in...
Bert Loomis was a visionary. This general session will highlight how Bert Loomis and people like him inspire us to build great things with small inventions. In their general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Architect at IBM Bluemix, and Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at Nvidia, discussed the accelerating pace of AI development and how IBM Cloud and NVIDIA are partnering to bring AI capabilities to "every day," on-demand. They also reviewed two "free infrastructure" pr...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Steve Wilkes, CTO and founder of Striim, will delve into four enterprise-scale, business-critical case studies where streaming analytics serves as the key to enabling real-time data integration and right-time insights in hybrid cloud, IoT, and fog computing environments. As part of this discussion, he will also present a demo based on its partnership with Fujitsu, highlighting their technologies in a healthcare IoT use-case. The demo showcases the tracking of pati...
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity?

In his Day 2 Keynote at @ThingsExpo, Henrik Kenani Dahlgren, Portfolio Marketing Manager at Ericsson, discussed how to plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
