DeMas Backoffice & DinBox RTU M4/Q7: cost-effective systems for control & monitoring of MV/LV substations (10-36kV to 230V)
The main mission of the DinBox RTU M4/Q7 is to maintain a GPRS/LTE Cat. 1 / M1 / NB IoT communication between an IEC-60870-5-104 Master environment (SCADA) and/or a DSO backoffice through MQTT. The DinBox RTU's in the field are managed by the DeMas (Data Management Software) system offering mass remote firmware updates, remote configuration, health status, automatic commissiong, communication infrastructure data etc.
The DeMas backoffice tool is deviced to be able to interface with the customers backoffice systems through 'software container techniques' making it easy to offer tailor made solutions.
Through the Modbus protocol, the RTU M4 can connect all kind of Power Quality or other sensor devices and/or communicate alarming events to the SCADA Master(s) - up to 6- through a mapping technique in the RTU. It is a powerful tool in upgrading all kinds of devices to an IEC 60870-5-104 environment. The DinBox RTU M4/Q7 offers GPRS LTE NB IoT communication (Sierra Wireless module), IEC 60870-5-104 slave functions, MQTT Client, Modbus TCP, Modbus TCP, 8 Digital inputs, 2 digital outputs and 2 analog 12 bit inputs. In the DinBox Q7 an extension board for Digital contacts can be offered as option. The inputs are galvanically isolated and the device can be powered by a wide range AC power supply or a DC version. Lastly, the device has a slot for Memory flash cards and a Last Gasp possibility of Supercap backup. All in all, a pretty complete solution for basic MV/LV substation automation and communication.
