It’s an easy-to-use remote data manager, using a web-based application and hardware modules. The unique modular approach allows a variety of process signals to be monitored, while the serial ports allow data to be collected from any Modbus RTU device.

The RD500 comprises a master communications module, and up to 16 slave modules. Various module types are available, allowing up to a maximum of 128 conventional inputs and outputs. The RD500’s serial ports can collect data from up to 247 Modbus RTU slave devices including field instruments. The unit's built-in web server, FTP, and email client allows the process to be monitored remotely. Alarm notifications are communicated through email and SMS text messages to one or more recipients to ensure that appropriate actions are taken by personnel.

The RD500 supports external modems, providing flexibility for applications in which GSM/GPRS cellular or landline connectivity is desired. The unit is configured via a web-based interface - a standard browser is all the software you need to configure your system.

Key Applications:

Remote monitoring, inventory management, web enabled instrumentation or other devices.

  • Remote viewing of instrumentation data
  • Remote datalogging
  • Remote event alarming
  • Report and messaging

Web server and web application supports flexible IO and communications options

Configurable software supports out of the box operation, as there's no programming or engineering required. You can connect up to 128 conventional IO instruments and 247 Modbus devices. SITRANS RD500 is a scalable solution to which you can add any of the IO modules to connect more instruments over time.

High capacity and easy-to-use Datalogger

SITRANS RD500 has the capacity to store years of data without using special software. It supports up to 2 gigabytes of removable compact fl ash memory. The reporting uses standard HTML that you can access automatically via email or ftp transfer, or on-demand via the integrated web server. The stored data files are also remotely accessible by FTP server. The FTP Push function sends data files to any remote FTP server for integration into your logistics systems.
