Advantech launches the ECU-1911 all-in-one RTU (remote terminal unit).

Advantech launches the ECU-1911 all-in-one RTU (remote terminal unit). This new device combines all of the benefits of control, communications, and computing into a single unit. The ECU-1911, with a Microsoft® Windows® CE 5.0 operating system, has been specifically designed to be an open development platform as it combines the Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 software development kit and DAQNavi SDK; a single integrated software package for programmers to develop their data acquisition application programs. It provides DAQ libraries, examples, and documents to help engineers focus on their domain application development and hardware configuration testing.

The ECU-1911 comes with a low power consuming Xscale PXA-270 520 MHz RISC processor and provides versatile isolated I/O’s including eight channel 16-bit analog input, 32 channel digital input, and 32 channel digital relay output. It also comes with three RS-485 isolated ports, one RS-232 port, two Ethernet ports, and one USB port. All of this fits neatly into compact size and is designed to be either mounted on a DIN-rail or a wall.

This exciting new all-in-one device can perform complicated processes required for remote automation needs such as smart substation and harsh environment monitoring application since the infrastructure combines I/O’s, VGA, USB and isolated I/O’s into a single compact unit.
