Export Guarantee with Prolonged Customer Credit

Since 2010 Brodersen Systems has been able to offer customers outside Denmark a long-term credit when entering into agreements.

 

National export agency EKF has made this possible through a unique loan guarantee to Danish SMEs. The export guarantee is first and foremost benefitting international customers presently being short of funds as a result of, e.g., the global financial crisis and challenges related to this.

 

EKF offers its SME guarantee for individual export orders worth up to EUR 3.3 million.

 

 

Order now pay later

Due to the extended fixed time of credit the customer will not have to pay the full order amount at once, thus opening a door for signing of agreements on much more favourable terms than usual.

 

In other words, you as a customer have a golden opportunity to place an order with Brodersen Systems here and now, but defer the payment of the order up to 5 years.

 

With the global financial crisis in mind, EKF’s incentive is to strengthen Danish export and growth.

 

To qualify for the guarantee the customer must meet certain demands, e.g.:

 

 

  • The company must have existed 2 years and be creditworthy (estimated by EKF/bank)
  • Net worth of the business has to be 3 times larger than the sum applied for
  • If the credit period exceeds 2 years the customer must accept to make a prepayment of 20 pct of the total order amount and to pay the remainder by honouring bills of exchange
  • The export order must be a one-off order and be worth no more than EUR 3.3 million
  • Credit period has to be more than 6 months for companies outside the EU/OECD and between 2 and 5 years for companies within the EU/OECD

 

Additional information

As a rule, the SME’s bank connection is responsible for applying for the guarantee with EKF. This can be done online for fast case handling.

Overview - RTU protocols and driver setup
Your RTU application may simply be an 'end point' and only need to interface with a SCADA host or other master device - or it may need to 'sing and dance'...
1- Select what you need
The RTU Configuration Tool allows selection of protocols and hardware.
2 - Create a project in WorkSuite
Then define IO points, create some logic and additional variables eg. this waste water pump station controller accumulates pump statistics and computes derived flow totals from change in wet well volume.
3 - Setup DNP3 slave for this example
Use the Fieldbus Configurator to add the DNP3 slave protocol, create a channel (how to communicate), create a 'session' (who to communicate with), then set application layer parameters (messaging rules).
4 - 'Variables of interest'
Variables (data points in the RTU database) can be 'exposed' to one or more protocols, by referencing them in either the fieldbus editor (simple protocols like Modbus), or including them in a 'profile' (advanced protocols like IEC61850 and DNP3). For DNP3 slave, the variables of interest are dragged in to the DNP3S profile, where they can be associated to object types, given a point address, event class, reporting limits etc.
5 - Prove it works
Connect the RTU to the SCADA host and prove the data values are transferred correctly. If you need to troubleshoot the message contents - use the RTU web interface utility to capture network data packets for viewing in Wireshark to quickly resolve issues.
6 - Make it smarter!
The WorkSuite logic tools allow you to interact with the RTU communications tasks, to enhance the monitoring and control of your data transfer processes. This example DNP3 slave RTU is monitoring the unread events buffers and is able to manipulate point object properties (event class, reporting thresholds etc) and network interface properties (IP address of the host and peer slaves that it may be communicating with).
Conclusion - enjoy having a 'future proof' RTU...
Your RTU requirements will evolve over time, so when you need more I/O, comm ports, protocols or RTU functionality - know it can be easily implemented in a Brodersen RTU.
