The PRTU/RTU provides MODBUS registers that include the water level to 3 decimal places, the RTU address and the Alarm trigger points and hysteresis for the
. Distances of up to 4000' are supported between the PRTU/RTU and the host using two twisted pairs (full duplex).
All PRTU shipped after July 1, 2003 are equipped with a level-controlled relay output. The user defines the UPPER and LOWER levels for which the relay closes. These levels typically correspond to flood and drought conditions. The hysteresis for each of the trigger points is also user-configurable.
The “/4-20” option provides a 4-20mA signal proportional to the water level using by means of a 16-bit DAC. The water levels corresponding to an output of 4mA and 20mA are user-configurable from the digital display. Also, although the DAC is factory-calibrated, the unit features a calibration mode whereby 4mA and 20mA current levels are provided as a reference for fine adjustment of the device if necessary.
The PRTU can be equipped with a leased-line or dial-up modem. This allows unlimited distances between the PSE sensor and the PRTU.
For leased-line modem order with option "/MDMLL".
For dial-up modem order with option "/MDM".
