INNOVATION THROUGH AUTOMATION

Remote Terminal Units

A Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) is an industrial control system that is microprocessor-based. RTUs electronically connect various kinds of hardware to other control systems such as SCADA or DCS. These electronic units carry sensor data through input and output streams, which are transmitted to a centralized ICS through a control loop. RTUs also manage connections to remote or local controls, which is why they are known as remote units of telecontrol or remote units of telemetry.

plc internal components

Some applications of RTUs are:

  • Offshore platforms and oil wells
  • Pipeline pump stations (water supply, wastewater collection)
  • Outdoor warning sirens
  • Natural gas networks and related equipment
  • Air Traffic equipment (ILS, GP, DVOR)
  • Environmental monitoring systems (emissions, pollution, air quality)
