8130 RTU
Functionality

Unparalleled capabilities from modular hardware/software architecture

Application

Ideal for tank gauging, control and automation at tank farms, terminals and refineries

Integration

Reduces cost by integrating all analog, digital and serial data into one system

Servicing

ViewRTU software tool for remote configuration, programming and reporting

Meets API and is ATEX approved

Modular Communications

The 8130 RTU supports up to four interface modules that can interface to virtually any tank gauge on the market. With over 20 modules available, it is possible to integrate float and tape transmitters, HTG, servo, magnetostrictive and radar gauges from different manufacturers - all using a single device.

Control and Automation

A full range of I/O interfaces is available for the 8130 RTU, offering connectivity to virtually every type of signal encountered in industrial environments. Analog, digital and serial data inputs and outputs support simplifies integration and increases control and automation possibilities.

Tank Installation

Configuration and Support

The 8130 RTU allows remote configuration of your tank gauges, which means less on-tank activities, resulting in less personnel risk. The gauge configuration data can then be exported to other applications, such as Microsoft Excel® or Access®; thus documenting all tank gauge equipment.

Built-in Software

Software "blocks" built into the device provide a broad range of complex, but commonly needed functions, such as analog scaling, flow measurement and totalization, digital alarm handling, and pump/valve acquisition and control.
