Motorola MOSCAD-M Remote Terminal Unit

The MOSCAD-M RTU is the smallest member of the Motorola family of RTUs. It incorporates a fixed configuration of analog and digital inputs and outputs. MOSCAD-M is capable of communicating in a network with MOSCAD and ACE3600 RTUs. Although small in size the MOSCAD-M enough has power to satisfy a wide range of SCADA applications.

MOSCAD-M has a compact size and low power consumption which makes it ideal in outdoor locations with solar and battery power sources

The MOSCAD-M RTU optimally combines the most important functions of an RTU and a Programmable Logic Controller in one unit.

Power Management
Low power consumption is achieved by application oriented power management which provides power for a selected time only to the circuits and elements necessary. The MOSCAD-M RTU is switched to sleep mode when all circuits are idle and awakens when predefined events occur.

Compact size The MOSCAD-M compact size allows easy wall mounted installations or into pre-existing enclosures.

Versatile communication options
MOSCAD-M RTUs offer multiple communication options including: two-way conventional or trunked radio, Multiple Address System (MAS) and spread spectrum radio, leased line and dial-up modems, and 10/100Base-T Ethernet.

Diverse connectivity
Integrated I/O ports on the MOSCAD-M provide protected connectivity to a range of intelligent sensors as well as discrete digital and analog sensors and control solutions. Connectivity via RS-232 and RS-485 ports is also available.

Application Programming
Typical applications include remote monitoring and control of valves and pumps, monitoring of tank levels, pipeline pressure, cathodic protection, rain and flood, environmental pollution, chemical spill, radiation and more.

Motorola Data Link Communication (MDLC) protocol
Based on the seven layer ISO/OSI standard, the MDLC protocol is enhanced with robust error handling to provide reliable communication. It enables RTU-to-control-center as well as RTU-to-RTU direct communications without passing through a dedicated repeater.
