From small rural water operations to large, complex systems with remote wells, storage reservoirs and treatment plants; our customers benefit from Motorola's commitment to their success. Today, the majority of the top utilities in the nation utilize one or more of our wireless communication systems and thousands of our SCADA systems are used in water/wastewater applications alone. Over 120,000 RTUs have been delivered worldwide.

Remote control and monitoring applications:

Water/Wastewater: Improve distribution system or collection system operation, optimize treatment plants and realize chemical and energy savings.

Electric power distribution: Implement Distribution Automation systems by controlling load break switchgear, reclosers and other IEDs (intelligent electronic devices).at substations, pad or pole top locations. Oil & gas pipelines: Monitor and control flow, pressure, cathodic voltage; perform emergency shutdowns, monitor remote exploration and storage sites.

Early warning/siren control: Perform routine tests and remotely activate sirens for public annunciation of emergency conditions.

Communication network monitoring and control: Perform remote monitoring of critical equipment such as power systems, environmental control systems, tower lights, etc.

Fire station alerting: Quickly dispatch fire equipment and resources with remote control of lights, sirens, voice public address systems, doors, etc...

This services include such product like the Motorola SCADA: ACE3600 and MOSCAD RTUs. These products serve customers in the water/wastewater, as well as the electrical, mining, and Local, County, State, and Federal government markets.

Narrowbanding FCC Mandate In an effort to promote greater spectrum efficiency, the FCC is requiring all Public Safety and Industrial/Business licensees using 25 kHz VHF and UHF radios systems migrate to minimum 12.5 kHz efficiency by January 1, 2013 US3 is here to help you prepare for a smooth and cost-effective transition. While Motorola radios purchased in the last ten years are likely dual-mode 25/12.5 kHz, older equipment may need to be replaced. Increase Capacity or TDMA Efficiency

Increase capacity and meet the Narrowbanding mandate without applying for a second channel. Motorola is shipping two complete product families; ASTRO 25 APX radios for mission critical applications and the MOTOTRBO series for business critical applications that provide greater than 12.5 kHz efficiency.

Transition at Your Own Pace Motorola radios are backwards compatible so they can operate in dual mode (12.5 kHz or 25 kHz), allowing your organization to transition to 12.5 kHz at your own pace up to the FCC deadline.

Graphical User Interface The System Tool Suite (STS) programming tool features user-friendly, menu-driven GUI that allows program development and local and remote system setup and maintenance.

Industry-accepted protocols ACE3600 RTU supports multiple industry protocols such as Modbus, DF-1, DNP3.0, and IEC 60870-5-101 and allows direct connection of smart sensors, PLCs and IEDs.

Motorola Data Link Communication (MDLC) protocol MDLC protocol has robust error handling to provide reliable communication. It enables RTU-to-control-center and RTU-to-RTU direct communications without a dedicated repeater.

MOSCAD Compatibility With MDLC protocol, new ACE3600 RTUs can be easily integrated with existing MOSCAD family RTUs into a single system.

ACE3600 RTUs can implement sophisticated pump sequencing functions to guarantee the appropriate, most cost effective pump is operating. Adjustments for wet weather flows or seasonal changes can be made automatically. Remote site operation can be optimized for run time equalization, chemical and energy use.

ACE3600 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) The ACE3600 RTU combines the local processing of a PLC with the superior communications of an RTU for an all-in-one high-performance unit. It allows seamless integration with multiple PLCs, RTUs and Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED).

A powerful processor combined with versatile input/output modules allows this RTU to be used for the most demanding SCADA applications, including those in:

  • Electric Utilities
  • Oil & Gas
  • Water & Wastewater
  • Siren/PA

This modular RTU can be expanded with multiple, simultaneously operating communication ports in a range of industry protocols. The communication capability is specifically designed to support secure communications over diverse networks.

Versatile communication options

MOSCAD-M RTUs offer multiple communication options including: two-way conventional or trunked radio, Multiple Address System (MAS) and spread spectrum radio, leased line and dial-up modems, and 10/100Base-T Ethernet. Supports up to 5 ports, ACE3600 can simultaneously communicate over RS-232, RS-485, radio and IP, while using the same/different protocols.

  • Analog conventional radios
  • Analog or digital trunked systems
  • Multiple Address Systems
  • Telephone/leased lines, and fiber-optic links
  • Microwave and satellite
  • Wired and Wireless IP networks

Data security
ACE3600 supports encryption over wireless with downloadable keys. Graphical User Interface The System Tool Suite (STS) programming tool features user-friendly, menu-driven GUI that allows program development and local and remote system setup and maintenance.

Motorola Data Link Communication (MDLC) protocol
MDLC protocol has robust error handling to provide reliable communication. It enables RTU-to-control-center and RTU-to-RTU direct communications without a dedicated repeater.

MOSCAD Compatibility
With MDLC protocol, new ACE3600 RTUs can be easily integrated with existing MOSCAD family RTUs into a single system MOSCAD-M Remote Terminal Unit The MOSCAD-M RTU is the smallest member of the Motorola family of RTUs. It incorporates a fixed configuration of analog and digital inputs and outputs. MOSCAD-M is capable of communicating in a network with MOSCAD and ACE3600 RTUs. Although small in size the MOSCAD-M enough has power to satisfy a wide range of SCADA applications.

MOSCAD-M has a compact size and low power consumption which makes it ideal in outdoor locations with solar and battery power sources. Features The MOSCAD-M RTU optimally combines the most important functions of an RTU and a Programmable Logic Controller in one unit.

Power Management
Low power consumption is achieved by application oriented power management which provides power for a selected time only to the circuits and elements necessary. The MOSCAD-M RTU is switched to sleep mode when all circuits are idle and awakens when predefined events occur.

Compact size
The MOSCAD-M compact size allows easy wall mounted installations or into pre-existing enclosures.

Diverse connectivity
Integrated I/O ports on the MOSCAD-M provide protected connectivity to a range of intelligent sensors as well as discrete digital and analog sensors and control solutions. Connectivity via RS-232 and RS-485 ports is also available.

Application Programming
Typical applications include remote monitoring and control of valves and pumps, monitoring of tank levels, pipeline pressure, cathodic protection, rain and flood, environmental pollution, chemical spill, radiation and more.

Motorola Data Link Communication (MDLC) protocol
Based on the seven layer ISO/OSI standard, the MDLC protocol is enhanced with robust error handling to provide reliable communication. It enables RTU-to-control-center as well as RTU-to-RTU direct communications without passing through a dedicated repeater.
