RTU520 Starter Kit

As your distribution network develops towards an intelligent network you will need more and more independent monitoring and control devices to handle all different tasks. With our RTU520 you will keep your costs down while ensuring a stable supply for your customers.

  • RTU520 takes over the function of monitoring and control of switching devices for pole-top switch monitoring and control applications. The advantage for you is that you save costs for maintenance staff and that you will reduce the average outage duration for each customer (SAIDI).

  • Recent developments bring distributed energy resources into the distribution grid and they need to be controlled in order to protect primary equipment and ensure power quality. With the RTU520 you can monitor and control the distributed energy resources (DER). This enables you to focus on the critical tasks of network management while the RTU locally controls DER.

  • In the automation of secondary substation and ring main units the RTU520 monitors and controls your transformer and intelligently handles loads.

RTU520 Application Example

  • Electrical distribution network
    • Pole-top switch monitoring and control
    • Capacitor bank automation
    • Demand response management
    • Automation of DER
    • Energy storage
    • Automation of secondary substation / ring main unit
    • Transformer automation and control

  • Oil and gas application
    • Wellhead automation
    • Pipeline supervision

  • Monitoring and control of pumping stations
    • Water distribution network
    • Monitoring and control of water reservoirs
    • Monitoring and control of pumping stations
The RTU520 can be easily engineered thanks to its easy and intuitive handling. Features like quick tips and drag and drop functionality make the engineering as easy as never before.

In addition the RTU520 offers the option of a basic engineering in only a few steps or a pre-configured RTU, allowing the split between the main configuration on RTUtil realized by the engineer and the finalization of the last settings by the installer in the station.

Basic engineering

  • Guided engineering workflow
  • Engineering interface integrated in RTU
  • Online help with direct online link to documentation, case sensitive
  • Supporting material and installation guide available

Benefits
  • Easy configurations can be done in 4 simple steps
  • Cyber security functions in our product
  • Easy and simple configuration
  • No training required



Pre-configured RTU520

  • Configuration is done once in RTUtil and can be replicated as often as required
  • The Parametrization can easily be done on site with the user friendly web server

Benefits
  • Saves a huge amount of time, as the configuration only needs to be done once
  • Increases productivity: The parametrization on site, can be done from the installer on site.

The RTU520 Starter kit is an excellent way to get the full experience of how the RTU520 works. Thanks to the accompanying Starter Guide and the RTU520 Starter Kit itself being so easy to use, configuration has never been more uncomplicated. With no training even required, it is just to forget about long confusing instructions, tangling endless wires and ponderous products.

The RTU520 Starter kit is as simple and petite as can be, while still having all the features and functions needed, making it easy for you as a customer to see the benefits and how the RTU 520 really works. The RTU520 Starter kit gives you a chance to try for yourself and configure in only four easy steps, while sitting next to your own computer.

Your benefits include:

  • Compact design equipped with all required modules to start your RTU
  • Easy configuration in 4 simple steps, thanks to guided online engineering tool
  • Try yourself and experience all the benefits on your own

Application example

Your RTU520 starter kit comes with all needed components to try the advantages of the RTU520 yourself, including installation guide, USB stick with driver and connecting cable. In a few simple steps you can try different applications and configurations from your desk without even leaving the office. This way you can get a first insight view in the full range of benefits the RTU520 brings.

Modules

The RTU520 Starter kit contains of a Communication unit (CMU) 520CMD01, a Power supply unit 520PSD01, AC/DC converter to connect to 110/230 VAC socket, simulation for binary inputs and two IO input boards, 520BID01 that contains 16 binary inputs in addition to 520BOD01 containing 8 binary inputs, making it easy to see how they work, as well as how it would be using the RTU520 Starter kit in your substation.
