DM100 Series RTU (Remote Terminal Unit)
Mikrodev DM100 series is a line of Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) specifically designed for Smart Electrical Devices in the electricity sector, such as protection relays, reclosers, energy and quality analyzers, and more. These devices are equipped to communicate and control through industry-standard protocols like IEC 61850, MODBUS TCP, and MODBUS RTU. Additionally, they can establish communication with SCADA or control center software using IEC 60870-5-104, DNP3, and MODBUS TCP protocols. Mikrodev’s RTU products provide ease, flexibility, and swift programming capabilities, offering I/O options that can expand up to 512 points, making them a preferred choice for electrical energy applications.
In the programming of Mikrodev DM100 series RTUs, the Function Block Diagram (FBD) language, as defined in the IEC 61131-3 standard, is employed. The FBD language facilitates the development of applications through a user-friendly drag-and-drop approach, offering substantial flexibility to effectively utilize Mikrodev’s RTU products.
Within the DM100 series of Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), Mikrodev offers two divergent products: “DM100-E1N-GC0-B1000” and “DM100-E2N-GC3-B1000.” The former features 1 ETH, 1 RS232, and 2 RS485 communication ports, while the latter comes with 2 ETH and 2 RS485 ports.
