MCS11 Protocol Tutorial
When doing your homework on finding the right RTU or master station you may come across different communications protocols. You're likely to see MCS11 protocols being used by other devices. One of the struggles in setting up your network monitoring system is finding a quality master station that is able to support and talk with all of the devices and protocols that exist in your network.
Here are a few features that you'll find in an effective master station.
- Support for other manufacturer's legacy devices and proprietary protocols. Having a master station that can smoothly connect to other devices you already may have is crucial and cost effective. It saves you time and money by smoothly fitting right into your network.
- Intuitive and user-friendly graphical interface (GUI). A complicated and clunky GUI causes confusion, wastes time through unnecessary training, and squanders valuable resources that could be better used on more productive tasks than a needlessly complex GUI. An intuitive and user-friendly GUI gives you all the control you need over your network - without the headache.
- Support for labeled controls. Being informed is your best ally when fighting a network emergency. Having poor standard alarm descriptions (like "Control Relay 2") doesn't tell you much. Support for labeled controls keeps you in the loop - so you always know what to do next (like "Power Out - Activate Backup Generator).
- Powerful alert alerts. Your master station should provide your techs with detailed alerts and instructions, in a variety of methods, to ensure they can tackle the network emergency. Find a master station capable of alert methods like alphanumeric pages, cell phone alerts, and e-mail. By having several options for alerts, you're never in the dark about the status of your network.
