Foxboro SCADA RTUs
Foxboro SCD2200 and Foxboro Evo SCD6000 — world-class RTUs providing SCADA remote communications for efficient, cost-effective process automation
Schneider Electric’s Foxboro SCD2200 and Foxboro Evo SCD6000 are world-class RTUs — providing SCADA remote communications for efficient, cost-effective process automation. Modular construction and advanced features offer fast, easy and reliable configuration and operation in demanding applications.
FeaturesSchneider Electric offers two primary remote terminal units (RTUs) for long-distance, high-integrity communications in process automation. Their modular construction and advanced features furnish fast, easy and reliable configuration and operation in demanding applications.
The Foxboro® SCD2200 is an advanced, modular RTU able to create multiply redundant communications and rack configurations. Designed for today’s measurement and control systems, it avoids technical constraints that traditionally limit RTU use. The SCD2200 provides advanced capabilities, IP connectivity and open programming for a broad range of remote measurement and control applications.
The Foxboro Evo™ SCD6000 is a multi-nodal RTU with advanced data integration, time synchronization and programming capabilities. Its primary slave interfaces are provided with DNP3 slave (TCP/IP and serial) and IEC 61850 client protocols. The SCD6000 IEC 61850 gateway uses these protocols to integrate with multiple remote master control centers.
Advanced configuration and programming environments help both units increase applications engineering productivity: Fox Station for the SCD6000, and FoxRTU Station for SCD2200 RTU systems.
