Semaphore document describes automation and monitoring of broadcast transmission facilities.

Lake Mary, Fla., March 23, 2011—Semaphore, a CSE Global company, has released a new technical document with information on applications of Kingfisher and T-BOX RTU products for SCADA system installations in the broadcast and telecommunications industries. Semaphore brings new technology to automation and monitoring of remote broadcast transmission facilities.

The "Semaphore Solutions for Broadcast Transmission Facilities" brief describes how the Kingfisher RTU and T-BOX RTU product families cost-effectively automate processes, operate wide area SCADA networks, and provide alarm management and intelligent data logging in rugged platforms that are designed for remote site installations.

The document is available on the Semaphore website,

The Kingfisher RTU line provides an advanced automation platform for SCADA system solutions, including redundant configurations, intelligent I/O, and open programming that is compliant with IEC 61131-3. Kingfisher is also the first RTU product line that is compliant with IEC 61499, the distributed processing and interoperability extension to IEC 61131-3. Kingfisher systems are well suited to large, demanding measurement and control applications that employ central stations.

T-BOX employs an innovative, decentralized architecture that enables the complete integration of programmable automation, alarm management, data logging and IP telemetry in a single rugged package. Simple yet powerful platforms leverage web technologies and push messaging via e-mail, SMS text and FTP. T-BOX systems are easy to configure and offer dramatically reduced costs versus traditional PLC and SCADA architectures.

Semaphore's Kingfisher and T-BOX RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the broadcast / telecom, infrastructure management, oil and gas, power, transportation and water / wastewater industries.
