Product launch RCU Remote Control Unit

The RCU Remote Control Unit is the solution for Rhosonics measuring instruments that are installed at hard to reach or inaccessible places. This multifunctional device is connected to the instrument by cable and can be used to monitor measurement results and change settings real-time at a safe and convenient location near the process. Another feature of the RCU is the communication protocol converter. For example, to convert a HART/4…20 mA signal to Modbus RTU signal

Application example
Rhosonics provides measuring instruments for in-line applications. Usually, the Rhosonics instrument sends measuring data to the control room or the data is directly used for process control. However, in some cases, operators want to monitor measuring data and adjust setting of the instrument on site at a safe and convenient location near the process.
The new Rhosonics instruments, like the SDM Slurry Density Meter, are supplied with a sensor, display and operation panel integrated in a compact all-in-one system. The user interfaces of these instruments can sometimes be hard to reach because of installation in a difficult position of the process pipe. Yet, in these cases, the Rhosonics RCU Remote Control Unit would be the perfect solution.

RCU Models
The RCU is available in three different versions, each with their own specifications. Depending on the type of RCU, operators can use this device to read their measured values, convert communication protocols and/or adjust settings of the field instrument using a touch screen interface on the device or at their PC/PLC with a free-of-charge Rhosonics software program. For detailed specifications per model, please contact Rhosonics.
