Terminal Unit (RTU, DTU, FTU, TTU)

Distribution Automation - Terminal Unit


Under distribution automation, Terminal Units (TU) reference designs specifically address telemetry aspects that include:

Acquiring data from remote sensors and instruments accurately and reliably under harsh environmental conditions in a Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), measuring multiple Voltage and Currents simultaneouslyfrom a Switching Station in a Distribution Terminal Unit (DTU) or a Feeder Switch in a Feeder Terminal Unit (FTU) and monitoring the health of a transformer in a Transformer Terminal Unit (TTU)

Supporting multiple industrial protocols on the same hardware, adding redundancy (HSR/PRP)through PRU-ICSS sub system for communicating real-time between a Master Terminal Unit (MTU) other Terminal Units for sending data, supervisory and control signals


Supporting interfaces and protocolsfor communicating within a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) network through interfaces such as RS232, RS485 , 10/100-bast T Ethernet and designs that showcase precision time stamping for time synchronization
