Courtesy: AdvantechAdvantech's ECU-1911 all-in-one RTU (remote terminal unit) combines all of the benefits of control, communications, and computing into a single unit. The ECU-1911, with a Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 operating system, has been specifically designed to be an open development platform as it combines the Microsoft Windows CE 5.0 software development kit and DAQNavi SDK; a single integrated software package for programmers to develop their data acquisition application programs. It provides DAQ libraries, examples, and documents to help engineers focus on their domain application development and hardware configuration testing.

The ECU-1911 comes with a low power consuming Xscale PXA-270 520 MHz RISC processor and provides versatile isolated I/O’s including eight channel 16-bit analog input, 32 channel digital input, and 32 channel digital relay output. It also comes with three RS-485 isolated ports, one RS-232 port, two Ethernet ports, and one USB port. All of this fits neatly into compact size and is designed to be either mounted on a DIN-rail or a wall.

This exciting new all-in-one device can perform complicated processes required for remote automation needs such as smart substation and harsh environment monitoring application since the infrastructure combines I/O’s, VGA, USB and isolated I/O’s into a single compact unit.

I need to replace my ESD stations located in my CCR which presently communicate over telephone company modems to the remote custody transfer metering stations. We have around 30 stations located over a radius of 50 KMs.
Each station has 1 or max.2 ESD valves. Please advise SIL3 communications for this ESD application.

Nice idea. Not exactly original, but the use of WinCE for the SDK platform is questionable.
How would it be supportable?
