The Operations-Critical SCADA Solution

Supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems are continuously relied on to support the most demanding industrial applications and keep your operations running efficiently. Keep your assets connected to enhance productivity and safety across your operations with the ACE3600 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU).

The ACE3600 aims to make automation and monitoring of your complex processes robust and cohesive by connecting across a variety of communication media and data processing protocols. Enhanced security features also ensure your operations aren’t compromised and productivity doesn’t cease.

Modular design and abundant customization enables the ACE3600 to fit your specific SCADA needs. You can start small and grow, confident that the powerful processor can handle complex applications and keep your operations connected even as your needs or technologies evolve.

Oil & Gas Application

Oil and gas operations require remote control for production wellheads, along long pipelines and at valves located at difficult-to-access sites. This industry must maintain the strictest safety measures to prevent and detect leakages or fire at remote installations. Thus each site must be supervised via RTUs with communications to one or more control centers. RTUs in gas installations calculate gas flow according to AGA-3, AGA-7, AGA-8, and other standard formulas, while RTUs along oil pipelines perform analog pressure control using PID loops to monitor cathodic protection rectifiers, flow meters, and more.

Water Application

Among the goals commonly cited by municipal and private water utilities worldwide are cost savings due to reduction of unaccounted-for-water, maintenance cost reduction, lift station early problem detection, energy and chemical material cost reduction, deferment of expansions due to more optimal operation, etc. Motorola's wireless and wired data communication based RTUs provide solutions to these and other applications. They can be configured to monitor the flow in pipelines and improve regulation of pressure using Pressure Regulated Valves, cut down on unnecessary consumption, and reduce water losses. RTUs collect real-time information on reservoir levels and pump operation, communicating report-by-event based data that helps maintain a reliable supply and stable pressure.

Features & Benefits

High-Performance, Real-Time Processing Power
The ACE3600’s processing power provides accurate data analysis and communication for the most critical, and demanding SCADA applications to ensure optimal operation with a 32-bit processor, running at 200 MHz.

Operations-Critical Redundancy
The ACE3600 can also be redundantly configured with a simple Ethernet interconnection. This ensures continuous operation if one CPU or power supply were to fail.

Large Scale Capacity
24 different types of I/O modules are available, and each RTU has capacity to support up to 110 I/O modules, giving you flexibility to configure large or small sites compactly and cost-effectively.

Connection Versatility Across Operational Technologies
Connect to operational technologies seamlessly and transmit information efficiently with the ACE3600’s extensive common data protocol support combined with our enhanced MDLC protocol.

Interoperable Communication Capabilities
The ACE3600’s unique communication capabilities allow your system to transmit your valuable data over a variety of media including analog/digital two-way radio, dial-up modem, point-to-point microwave, 3G/4G public or private, and Ethernet - simultaneously.
