Look at picture of this assembly, shown with optional expansion boards.
The medium-size COMMANDER Cardfile RTU provides advanced telemetry and control functions for SCADA (Supervisory, Control, and Data Acquisition) systems.
Each unit is constructed with cardfile(s) of applicable I/O cards (typically 8 point groups) and ancillary assemblies to meet site requirements. RTU configuration data is stored in non-volatile memories by use of a portable personal computer and/or commands from the Master Station.
The COMMANDER technology is highly reliable, field-proven, and in a second-generation design since its introduction in 1988. COMMANDER Cardfile RTUs are also upward compatible with the "open system" ENTERPRISE RTU/Station Computer family for long term evolutionary capabilities.
Typical Input/Output: 256DI/PI 128AI 128DO 64AO
