RTU3212

RTU3212

The RTU3212 is a compact board-to-board RTU that functions as the head-end data processor of the Cleaveland/Price LineScope system.  It also mates with the control board of Cleaveland/Price ADMO, PTAD, UAD, and PAD automation motor operators.  Through its 4 DO’s and 15 DI’s, the 3212 adds control functions and status reporting to our motor operators.  The RTU utilizes DNP3.0 protocol with the option to select Modbus or PG&E protocol as an alternate protocol.  The board-to-board configuration eliminates wiring and results in a time saving and space efficient installation.

RTU Accessories

RTU Accessories

  • IV2000 – current-to-voltage converter board (5A to 10V standard) for use with the RTU3220 when analog input is current rather than voltage.  This board is also suitable for other non-RTU3220 applications where an accurate current to voltage conversion is needed.  Converter ratios of 10A to 10V and 1A to 10V are also available (minimum order quantity of 10).
  • H2000 – wiring harness with four ft. lead for wiring inputs to the RTU3220.    The harness terminates in male Molex connectors that connect to the RTU input connections.

RTU3220

The RTU3220 is a compact, power-efficient Remote Terminal Unit/Intelligent End Device (RTU/IED) designed for the electric industry. RTU3220s monitor both AC and DC analog inputs as well as discrete digital inputs, while calculating comprehensive power-quality values and waveforms.

Features

 


The RTU3220’s single PC-board construction features a System-on-Chip integrated circuit that decreases board complexity and reduces the number of exposed interconnections. All computing components and high-speed bus are contained within a sealed housing. The unhoused portion of the PC board is conformal-coated to protect RTU components from harsh environments.

In addition to reporting eight digital statuses and eight analog values, the RTU will calculate RMS voltage, RMS current, watts, VAR, phase angle, THD, and power factor. The RTU3220 will create and transfer COMTRADE files given user defined parameters.

The RTU3220 features:

  • A powerful, yet low power consumption processor
  • 9-30VDC power supply
  • DNP 3.0, Modbus, and PG&E protocol support
  • 10/100 Base-T Ethernet port with RJ-45 connector
  • Two RS-232 ports
  • One RS-485 connection
  • State logic programming

RTU3200

RTU3200

The RTU3200 is a modular RTU that consists of a main processing module and various input/output (I/O) modules; all connected via a high-speed bus. It can be configured with a five module chassis or a nine module chassis, depending on the number of analog and digital inputs that are required for the application. The RTU modules employ a high-performance 32-bit Advance RISC Machine (ARM) processor resulting in a system that minimizes heat generation and power consumption. In addition to reporting status and analog values, the RTU will calculate RMS voltage, watts, VARS, and power factor, and has advanced built-in fault detection. The RTU3200 will support a DNP master for communications to additional RTUs.

Announcement

 

The RTU2000 is Retired!

The electric industry is dynamic and the world of electronics even more so.  Integrated circuit components become smaller, faster, and more powerful.  These advancements eventually lead to the obsolescence of older generations of components and often entire products.  Due to components becoming obsolete, our Reliatronics RTU2000 has reached the point of retirement.

Cleaveland/Price, however, pleased to tell you that the RTU2000 has been replaced by a next generation RTU3220.  The RTU3220 has the same mounting hole locations as the RTU2000 and the I/O pinouts are the same as well for convenient physical interchangeability with the RTU2000.  The RTU3220 has several enhancements over the RTU2000:

  • An RJ45 Ethernet port has been added.
  • A second RS232 serial port has been added.
  • The configuration program is more user friendly and is shared among all Reliatronics RTU32xx devices.
  • It has the ability to create and transfer COMTRADE files.
  • RTU programming uses State Logic instead of Ladder Logic.
  • Analog inputs have a higher sampling rate for greater accuracy.
  • It has an improved fault detection algorithm.

Cleaveland/Price will continue to provide customer support for the RTU2000.  Documentation on the RTU2000 remains available through the cP Customer Portal.

Acquisition Announcement

Trafford, PA – May 24, 2016 – Cleaveland/Price announces that they have come to an agreement for acquisition of Reliatronics Inc., of Johnson City, TX. Reliatronics is a designer and manufacturer of remote terminal units (RTU) used primarily in the electric utility industry. Reliatronics RTU’s are noted for their small footprint and low power consumption and have been integrated into many Cleaveland/Price switch controllers.

Rae Sweeney, Cleaveland/Price president stated, “We are excited about the opportunities that will open up as a result of bringing Reliatronics into our company. We have number of products that we will be able to pursue given the expertise that Reliatronics will contribute.” Added Pete Kowalik, Cleaveland/Price vice-president and engineering manager, “Cleaveland/Price has worked closely with Reliatronics over the last 20+ years jointly supplying equipment to many utility customers. This closeness and common market led to the combining of efforts to design and manufacture a high voltage power line sensor (LineScope). The synergistic joining of the two companies creates a design and production team with greater capability to respond to new Smart Grid market needs.”

Hershel Roberson, president of Reliatronics, will continue with Cleaveland/Price in a product development role. Regarding the acquisition, Mr. Roberson observed, ” Reliatronics and Cleaveland/Price have probably done a hundred projects together and they have been great to work with. I have always been impressed by Cleaveland/Price’s engineering expertise, and with the family oriented culture of the company. I know that the products we have developed will be in good hands.”

Cleaveland/Price will be fully absorbing Reliatronics into its organization, however, will be maintaining the Reliatronics brand name for the RTUs.
