The MINER™ is a member of the Station Controller family of devices. Station Controllers not only combine the functions of a traditional RTU with the functionality of a Data Concentrator, but also includes a Terminal Server and a Web Server.
The MINER™ provides a balanced combination of I/O points and communication ports in a compact package, operating with just 6W in industrial temperature range.
The communications capabilities allow the MINER™ to connect to multiple IEDs either on multiple ports with multi-drop configurations or over one or two Ethernet ports. The communication to the master or masters can be configured to occur via one or more of four serial ports or via one or two Ethernet ports. When connected to an Ethernet LAN, one or more serial ports can be configured to act as terminal server ports. This allows a remote device (the master or other appropriate computer on the LAN) to access this port and exchange data with an external device. As an example, this feature can be used to remotely configure IEDs or upload historical data files.
The MINER™ has two dedicated serial ports for configuration, point monitoring and diagnostics. A simple terminal connected to this port will act as the Human interface. When connected to an Ethernet LAN, the same configuration and diagnostic operations can be performed remotely on the RTU via Telnet or Web Browser.
A powerful Web Server is also integrated within the MINER™. This user friendly tool allows operation, maintenance and configuration of the RTU without the need of proprietary software. Any standard web browser allows direct access to the web server built-in within the MINER ™.
Simple configuration is provided by the Points Mapping Wizard which allows points mapping of third party IEDs and I/O cards in a graphical environment. An extensive library of point maps is available for the most common IEDs available on the market, making IED point mapping a few clicks of the mouse.
