RSC21 Controller

Overview
RSC21 is a compact intelligent controller that can be used in a number of remote site management
applications. It can interface multiple field I/Os using external instrumentation buses that are natively
supported by the controller, including MODBUS and BacNET industry standard field buses. Due to
the highly modular nature of the design, it is straightforward to extend the RSC21 software in order to
support other bus types, including proprietary vendors’ protocols through the available serial ports.
Direct connection of analogue or digital I/O signals, is accomplished using off-the-shelf remote I/O
modules
RSC21 controller provides full TCP/IP support, and can be integrated in network transparent
management frameworks. It features built-in logic for detecting, prioritizing, combining and processing
alarms, for recording signal values locally, and for performing complex but configurable logic
operations.
