Omniflex introduces Teleterm M2E remote terminal unit with own unique IP address
Teleterm M2E RTU
The Teleterm M2E remote terminal unit (RTU) from Omniflex is designed to provide a simple, low-cost method of getting remote data and alarms to SCADA and DCS systems over Ethernet networks.
The M2E RTU can be added to an existing Ethernet network and has its own unique IP address.
Each RTU is equipped with 12 I/O ports that can be configured for analogue or digital I/O, depending on the desired application. At locations where more I/O is required, the RTU can be expanded using the built-in serial port, connected to additional M2E RTUs or other serially driven devices.
The M2E is also programmable in Isagraf, an industry-standard programming environment for all five IEC61131-3 programming languages.
- The M2E gets alarms and data to SCADA systems where existing Ethernet networks are already installed around the site.
- The device interfaces to any SCADA system via Modbus TCP or OPC.
- It is simple, convenient and low cost to install.
- Configurable I/O is said to provide ultimate flexibility.
- The M2E provides a cost-effective solution for remote monitoring and control.
Omniflex has launched an online service dedicated to alarm obsolescence and legacy alarm replacement. Alarm annunciators are said to be essential to the healthy functioning and operation of a plant.

Omniflex has revealed how its remote tank-level telemetry system with Data2Desktop technology is helping FSS Refiners, a supplier of industrial heating fuels in South Africa, to improve fuel management and organisational efficiency.
The C6335A four-way surge protection board from Omniflex is designed to safeguard the field wiring leading to or from sensitive equipment from lightning-induced surges, for example. The input/output circuit pairs are isolated from each other and fuse/MOV/gas arrestor combinations are used to protect connected equipment.
