Intelligent Remote Terminal Unit Market: Introduction

  • A remote terminal unit (RTU) is a microprocessor-controlled device that helps the master device and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system to monitor and communicate with devices in the grid placed at various geographical locations
  • A smart grid offers two-way communication between a power utility and its clients utilizing data and communication technologies
  • RTUs essentially observes and controls the grid. They give real-time information that help in completing important activities, including prevention of power outage, leakages in water line, or breakage of the pipeline used to move oil and gas.
  • An SCADA framework allows the service industry  to remotely screen and control network devices to increase reliability.
  • Real-time data is collected in smart grids with the help of sensors. RTUs help in transmitting real-time data to the control station, improving the performance of the grid in real time.
  • RTUs are employed in substations to integrate automation, prompting the ideal distribution of power.
  • RTUs are also installed in water treatment and distribution plants, for power transmission and distribution (T&D), and to check and control oil and gas lines.
  • Large-scale vendors create competitive environment for medium- and small-scale vendors by offering a large portfolio of grid related products and also customizable products.
