LineRunner SCADA NG (SCADA = Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is the broadband trans-mission system for reliable and cost-optimised transmission with up to 5.7 Mbps in telecontrol systems of:
Railroad and transport authorities
Pipelines and industry equipments
LineRunner SCADA NG is a further development of the series LOGEM 1200MD, LOGES MD and LineRunner SCADA currently deployed around the world. LineRunner SCADA NG is a modular design. It is possible to operate on copper pairs, optical fibres or in SDH/PDH networks in a single system. On optical route sections ranges up to 40 km can be achieved. Radio relay equipment and leased lines can also be integrated into the system. Interchangeable line interfaces can be used to allow conversion between the different transmission media for any SCADA NG.
LineRunner SCADA is a multidrop system of the latest generation. Multidrop means that data are exchanged via a network. LineRunner SCADA NG is a multidrop system with a maximum of 63 LineRunner SCADA systems permitted on a single transmission route. The SCADA network can be arranged in either a linear or ring topology. With it LineRunner SCADA NG supports variable network topologies using almost any desired infrastructures.
LineRunner SCADA NG can transport Ethernet traffic transparently over any established transmission media. To support already existing applications with serial interfaces, the LineRunner SCADA NG has a
serial interface (via the RJ45 jack) in addition to the two Ethernet interfaces, which can be used at the same time.
For serial data, a guaranteed bandwidth of up to 128 kbps is
The LineRunner SCADA NG comes in a robust plastic housing.
It is designed for DIN rail installation as well as for desktop deployment. When the LineRunner installation frame SCADA MF3 is used, up to four SCADA NG can be deployed in a subrack (3 HU, 84 SU) in a central office.
All interfaces and indicator lamps on the LineRunner SCADA NG are arranged at the front panel easily accessible by operations personnel. The low supply voltage and power consumption of the SCADA NG system means it can be operated even with solar power supplies. Apart from the user interface each LineRunner SCADA NG comes with two line interfaces. In addition, it can be operated as repeater or media converter.
LineRunner SCADA NG is designed for operation in extreme climatic conditions. It can be deployed in the temperature range of -25 °C to +70 °C. It is also shock resistant and can be operated in environments with high level of electromagnetic interference. Variety of interfaces
The LineRunner SCADA NG can be quickly and easily confi gured
for use in a transmission network. Depending on the transmission
medium, it may only be a matter of plugging in the corresponding
line interface. The table gives an outline on the interfaces available
and the typical transmission ranges between two LineRunner
Computers can be connected via Ethernet (TCP/IP) or serially via
master/slave (asynchronous to the computer) to the LineRunner
SCADA NG. Ring formation Any SCADA network can be connected to a ring. The ring architecture provides two major advantages. Firstly, system fail safety is improved. Whenever a transmission route is broken at one place due to external infl uences (e. g. excavations) data can continue to
be exchanged between LineRunner SCADA NGs. There are no downtimes.
The second advantage is the shortening of runtimes between the units. Depending on the topology data can have longer or shorter distances on different route sections. Remote supply LineRunner SCADA NGs at
remote locations can be remotely supplied via LineRunner SCADA RFS/RPS modules. The remote supply voltage is transmitted via the same copper pair that is employed for the SHDSL route. Hence you can realise very long
SHDSL transmission routes if you employ a LineRunner SCADA NG
as regenerator – even at installation sites without local power supply.
LineRunner ASMOS offers extensive setting confi guration and
control capabilities. Installed on a PC all LineRunner SCADA NG
can be accessed remotely from the central office.
