The Diagnostics products are independent software modules currently available for MOSCAD and ACE3600 RTUs. These products help optimize communications and efficiency of a system so you can get the most out of your RTUs.
The Diagnostic products include:
- StarComm Logger
- StarEvents Logger
By providing the following features we are able to further optimize and utilize your system communication:
- Hourly communication statistics from each RTU showing number of messages transmitted, received, retries, and overall efficiency
- Storage of historical data (up to 2 months) in each RTU for manual, easy retrieval so you can monitor what has happened
- Ability to send data directly to SCADA Software and continuously trend it for easy viewing and proactive troubleshooting.
One of the best resources for troubleshooting is an event history log in the RTU. With such a tool, you can pull up historical data from any Motorola MOSCAD or ACE3600 RTU that supports C toolkit. The product shows each change in the RTUs status and alarm points, as well as relays, analog changes, and general health indications so you can keep a close eye on your RTU.
A typical log looks like this:
07/22/15 07:15:09 High Level ON
07/22/15 07:15:12 Pump 1 ON (level = 6.2)
07/22/15 07:17:04 High Level OFF
07/22/15 07:17:11 Pump 1 OFF (Level = 2.1)
07/22/15 08:31:10 DI 14 ON
07/22/15 08:31:11 DI 15 ON
07/22/15 08:31:12 DI 16 ON
How Will Your System Benefit?
- 1 second resolution for all events (default value, this can be modified as needed)
- View sequence of events and precise time-stamp
- Retrieve data otherwise lost during communication outages
