RTU32M series CPU module
The RTU32M series is based on an embedded 32-bit
industrial platform providing flexible RTU functionality for a
wide range of remote monitoring and control applications
in the utility and infrastructure markets.
Each RTU32M comprises of a CPU module (MP32A), power
supply module and the desired mix of IO modules and
system modules, as required.
The RTU32M supports a variety of standard and open
protocols such as Modbus, IEC60870, IEC61850 and DNP3.
It also includes the fast event-based Binding protocol – a fast
and reliable way to distribute time stamped event data
between any Brodersen RTU32M in the network.
The RTU32M CPU module (MP32A) has a web server
configuration interface for setup of the RTU ‘personality’ eg.
IP address, IO range, slave address etc. Additional RTU
functionality, including logic, messaging and logging are
configured in the Brodersen Worksuite.
The RTU32M CPU module (MP32A) supports up to 60 I/O
Modular RTU with or without integrated I/O and
– Real Time Operating System.
– Communication Protocols include (>20 available);
• Full Modbus suite.
• IEC61850 Client / Server Protocol.
• DNP3 Master and DNP3 Slave.
• Binding – Global Distribution and Subscription
of Event Based Time Stamped Variables.
– Communication Protocols can also be created as part of
the logic application interface.
– Communication interfaces; 2 x Ethernet 10/100, 1x USB
are featured on the CPU module.
– Full EN/IEC61131 PLC runtime – also used for special
and flexible data manipulation.
– Includes power supply monitoring of the RTU32M
supply voltage and temperature.
– Support for redundant power supplies and CPUs.
– Hot swappable I/O.
– Full remote management with configuration,
programming and flexible distribution of all levels of
software from and to RTUs on remote locations.
Introduction to LB2 I/O Series
The Brodersen LB2 I/O modules are designed for the RTU32M & RTU32N series. The I/O modules are in two parts, a bottom part containing the backplane bus, and a top part containing the I/O board and logic. All LB2 modules are hot swappable and equipped with a 200 MHz processor to process I/O, handle filtering, SOE, debounce, module clock and general module logic. Diagnostic variables are available for all LB2 I/O modules. Please see the module datasheets for full info.
Module firmware update is handled at the RTU level from the Brodersen WorkSuite.
Use only genuine Brodersen bus cables for connection to Brodersen RTUs and for extension of I/O module blocks. The connection cables for the LB2 backplane bus are designed to meet the power requirements and shielding to run high speed communications. The maximum overall length of a complete system is 30 meters. Each LB2 I/O module & power supply module is calculated as 2 cm. The cables are as the length indicates, e.g. UCC-610/1 count as 100 cm.
The maximum system configuration is 60 I/O modules on one LB2 Bus. If the configuration exceeds 60 I/O modules, an additional CPU is required.
