Motorola ACE3600 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU)

The ACE3600 is an all-in-one package that includes the RTU, radio and software for quick installation. The ACE3600 features a graphical user interface (GUI) that minimizes training time by allowing system configurations and network operations to be managed through simple, user-friendly applications. The GUI includes program and system self-maintenance software tools.

Motorola ACE3600 Features

The Motorola ACE3600 operates with multiple industry protocols and across a wide band of communication media, including:

  • Fiber-optic links
  • Telephone and leased lines
  • VHF/UHF/800/900 MHz conventional systems
  • UHF/800/900 MHz analog or digital trunked systems
  • Multiple Address Systems (MAS)
  • Broadband data over Internet Protocol (IP)
  • Spread Spectrum communication
  • Microwave
  • Satellite
  • Narrowband and broadband at speeds from 1200 bps to 100 MB

This flexible communications capability enables the ACE3600 to connect with several local devices, analyze the data and send that information via different media to various other locations.

The ACE3600 also accommodates a host of devices, sensors and display elements and has hot-swappable input/output (I/O) modules with Sequence of Event Recording (SER).

Available on-board ports can feature up to:

  • Three 10/100Base-T ports
  • Four serial ports
  • Two radio modem ports

Motorola ACE3600 Applications

Wastewater Control

  • Implement pump sequencing to minimize power costs and equalize runtime.
  • Support one or more variable speed pumps.
  • Flexible to handle the smallest lift station tasks or the most complicated treatment plant process.
  • Makes an ideal intelligent data logger for mandated combined sewer overflow (CSO).

Potable Water

  • Monitors well parameters for sophisticated pump sequencing control and alerts.
  • Maintains water levels at the reservoir/water tower, and optimize flow and pressure in the distribution grid.
  • Provides critical response system fault detection for leaks or unauthorized water use.

Public Warning Systems

  • Provides secure communication between the sirens and the control center.
  • Provides back-up communications, silent test and download of recorded public warning messages, and siren activation.
  • Expands communication capabilities through a select combination of tones and pre-recorded voice messages.

Oil and Gas Safety

  • Continuously monitors, measures and controls different aspects of the production, refining, transportation, storage and distribution of oil and gas.
  • Measures oil and gas flow rates per American Gas Association (AGA) standards, accumulated flows, line and wellhead pressures.
  • Analyzes, coordinates and controls with enhanced system monitoring to manage oil spills, leakage and fire detection and emergency shut down procedures.

Fire Station Alerting Solution

  • Alerts specific bunkroom(s), waking only the appropriate response team(s) reducing work, stress and fatigue.
  • Protects the fire station from theft by closing the doors after the engines have left.
  • Guards against a fire in the fire station by shutting down designated high-risk areas within the station, such as the kitchen, which are quickly left unattended during an emergency.

Electrical Distribution

  • Monitors and controls transformers, substation protection relays and circuit-breaker reclosers utilizing detection technology to register which feeder sections experience a fault current.
  • Uses advanced communication capabilities for fault isolation and system restoration to remotely isolate a damaged MV power grid section and restore power to customers.
  • Regulates voltage and the power factor through remote control of capacitor banks along the grid providing more accurate billing and a reduction in energy losses along the network.
  • Helps power generation stations to effectively meet the growing demand for electricity through power quality monitoring.
