Real Time Control (RTC) stands for a continuous communication link. This allows direct intervention in the process. For real time control communication, the communication protocol is very important. Datawatt uses the international European communication protocol, the IEC60870-5-101 / 4 variant. This is a completely open communication protocol. The Datawatt RTUs such as the D05 and D26 telemetry substations are standard equipped with this protocol. Therefor these RTUs take care of an optimal operation between the central application and telemetry substations in the field.
Rel time control makes 24/7 control on your process, possible. If the process is likely to get interrupted the system can be adjusted in real time. This is important because the consequences of failure or delay in signalling in vital processes are very large. Nobody wants to think of the consequences if there is suddenly no water coming from the tap, or what happens if the pumps do not start when the water level is too high.
