Semaphore released a technical brief, which describes the implementation of redundancy in Kingfisher SCADA system RTU products.
While today’s RTU products and SCADA systems are very reliable, higher availability designs are still required for mission-critical processes and systems in which downtime is very expensive. Semaphore’s Kingfisher Plus+ RTU provides three levels of redundancy in order to cost-effectively meet a range of availability requirements. The technical brief describes the three levels — power supply, processor and communications — and compares CP-30 redundancy with implementations in prior generation products.

The Kingfisher Plus+ RTU works on an advanced, automation technology platform for SCADA applications. Kingfisher’s RTU line features an embedded programming environment that is compliant with IEC 61131-3 and IEC 61499 as well as an enhanced DNP3 protocol suite, security platform, complete array of communications networks and advanced functionality including redundancy.
