Web server technology

The modular TBox MS remote telemetry unit provides real-time remote access and control of your assets, using the latest web server technology. On-board web server technology eliminates the need for complex SCADA software and costly HMI displays.

Programming

Servelec’s programming and dynamic analytical tools and libraries significantly reduce development time even for complex multitasking automation requirements. With TWinSoft, an easy-to-use and intuitive configuration tool users can quickly complete their applications and dynamically control communication, alarms, data logging and logic, locally or remotely, in complete security. TWinSoft also includes WebForm Studio which allows users to create dynamic embedded web pages without any coding knowledge.

Alarm Management

TBox RTUs use push communications to send multimedia messages to defined groups and devices using escalation and shift management protocols and actions taken are recorded on the TBox’s local memory. At a specific time or following a change of state, a TBox RTU can automatically send messages to multiple recipients with attachments such as complete mobile-friendly reports with live and historical information, alarms and event notifications. Like email, SMS messages can be  transmitted to multiple recipients at a scheduled time or following an event.

Plug and Go Technology

Servelec Technologies’ TBox MS features ‘plug and go’ technology, allowing you to distribute your full site configuration on an SD card or via USB connection, enabling your maintenance team to deploy it without switching on a computer.

Plug and Go Technology

Security

All TBox devices and connected assets are protected by a state-of-the-art cyber security suite with authentication, encryption, firewall, SSL/TLS, HTTPS, SMTPS SFTP/FTPS and VPN.
