Semaphore has introduced the ANSI/SIA DC-09-2007 Internet Protocol Event Reporting for its T-BOX line of SCADA system products.

This protocol is now available with a T-BOX MS modular system equipped with a 32-bit CPU.

ANSI/SIA DC-09-2007 enhances the strong IP capabilities and security measures Semaphore has incorporated in the T-BOX RTU product line.

It provides encrypted, acknowledged and time-stamped event data and allows communication over a variety of physical networks, such as Ethernet, serial line (SLIP/PPP) and GPRS.

The combination of T-BOX and ANSI/SIA DC-09-2007 is particularly applicable to infrastructure management and mobile asset management applications.

In addition to automation, T-BOX performs alarm management and data logging and uses push technology to keep multiple recipients informed on the status of assets.

Push messaging includes IP forwarding, e-mail with attached files and SMS text.

T-BOX serves live and historical information on the internet or an intranet.

T-BOX enables the complete integration of SCADA, control and communications functionality in one package.

It leverages easy-to-use web technologies and inexpensive public networks for decentralised monitoring and control systems.

T-BOX products offer up to 50 per cent less total installed cost per point versus traditional SCADA/ PLC systems and permit greater organisational access to data through automated reporting and browser software.

Semaphore T-BOX RTU products are ideal for a broad range of monitoring and control applications in the broadcast, infrastructure management, oil and gas, power, transportation and water treatment and distribution industries.

The Security Industry Association said (SIA): ‘This voluntary standard details the protocol to report events from premises equipment to a central station using Internet Protocol (IP).

‘Intended for use by manufacturers of control panels and central station receivers to ensure equipment compatibility, this standard also affects security system installers, specifiers and users of central stations and local authorities dealing with compatibility issues.’
