The Benefits and Products features of Schneider Electric Foxboro SCADA RTUs for faster, cost-effective and efficient process automation

Under the Foxboro labels, Schneider offers excellent Schneider Foxboro SCADA RTUs remote communications for faster, cost-effective and efficient process automation. The RTUs provided with modular construction, long-list features, reliable configuration and operation for various demanding applications. There are two major remote terminal units (RTUs): The Foxboro SCD2200 and Foxboro Evo SCD6000. Both of RTUs are applicable for long-distance and high-integrity communications in the process of automation. The modular construction is another benefit that is adaptable to individual site needs.

Both of the Schneider Foxboro SCADA RTUs are eligible for advanced configuration and programming environments to increase applications engineering productivity.

Schneider Foxboro SCADA RTU

Schneider Foxboro SCD2200 and Evo SCD6000 SCADA RTUs, integrate with multiple remote master control centers for remote measurement applications

The Foxboro SCD2200 is an advanced modular RTU for the multiple redundant communications and rack configurations. Its smart design suited to nowadays measurement and control systems. It gives answer to the most technical issues prone to the traditional RTU, which has very limited in use. The Foxboro SCD2200 provides advanced usability and capabilities, open programming and IP connectivity for a broad range of remote measurement and control applications.

The second model, the Foxboro Evo SCD6000 is a multi-nodal RTU that provides data integration, programming capabilities and time synchronization. It comes with primary slave interfaces that provided with DNP3 Slave including TCP/IP and serial and IEC 61850 client protocols. Then the IEC 61850 client protocols used by the SCD6000 IEC 61850 gateways to integrate with multiple remote master control centers.

The advanced configuration for both Foxboro SCD2200 and Foxboro Evo SCD6000 can be achieved with Fox Station (Foxboro Evo SCD6000) and FoxRTU Station (Foxboro SCD2200).
