Overview

The Mini RTU series devices are made to for fill Utilities and distribution grids need in automation. As well this products line is well used as control and monitoring equipment for renewable energy sources (solar, wind and hydro). Due to modularity and variety of modules and functions this series can implement different applications from simple protocol conversion with only WCCLite due to complex tele-control applications with implemented algorithms, mobile connectivity and fault passage indicators functions.

The Mini RTU series devices are advanced RTU functions with unique functionality like data logger capabilities to collect internally measurements and events data as time-series data and ability to securely transfer information into on Premise or Cloud based monitoring systems. The Mini RTU series supports as well and networking functions (switch, VPN server/client, rules based firewall, RESTful API) that allows easily to implement networking tasks on RTU it self without any additional equipement and improve Cyber security.
