RTU or Remote Terminal Units are sensitive microprocessor equipment found in commercial and industrial SCADA system applications. RTUs communicate with various types of in the field equipment to monitor or control various automated processes.
RTUs have become increasingly at risk as SCADA and other operating systems become more demanding. Remote Terminal Units are vulnerable to the transient voltage environment found in today's commercial and industrial facilities.
Risk of extensive RTU damage is always present from external surge events via remote data collection, monitor or control equipment. However, constant low level internal surge activity is dangerous and often overlooked.
Protect sensitive Remote Terminal Unit equipment with High Quality, High Performance surge protectors. These unique SPDs provide Full Spectrum Protection for critical and sensitive process control systems.
In commercial and industrial environments, there are multiple surge types present. SPDs that effectively protect against both Impulse and RingWave type transients, in all modes, provide the highest level of protection.
Many SPD designs primarily focus on Impulse type protection. However, in commercial environments, RingWave surges are typically much more prevalent than impulse surges.
Sensitive electronics can be severely damaged by impulse surges including: lightning, system faults and grid switches. However, RTUs are increasingly being damaged by constant, repetitive, RingWave transients.
Important Note: Few surge protectors address RingWave surges effectively. This includes protectors with EMI/RFI Filtration Technology.
Many SPDs don't provide high quality RingWave suppression technology. Our SPDs do. Our SPD designs are specifically built to perform against both Impulse and RingWave Transients in all modes. This is Full Spectrum Protection.
Fixed clamping circuitry is not designed to mitigate RingWave transients effectively. EMI/RFI circuitry is not designed for effective RingWave transient protection either.
A SPD with both Fixed-Clamping and EMI/RFI circuitry only amounts to Partial Protection.
20% of surge related damage is caused by External sources. 80% of surge related electrical damage is caused by Internal sources. Most Internal surge activity are RingWaves.
Don't settle for partial or 20% protection when Full Spectrum Protection is available!
