XetaWave Expands Functionality of its Data Concentrator & Announces the Release of a Terminal Server to Simplify SCADA Communications & Reduce Network Costs
LOUISVILLE, CO, October 9, 2019 / ‐‐ XetaWave, a Colorado‐based leader in wireless technology, XetaWave announces that it has expanded the functionality of its Data Concentrator (XetaDC) and has released a Terminal Server (XetaTS), both designed to simplify SCADA communications and reduce network costs.
XetaWave's Modbus Data Concentrator (XetaDC) is a very robust application that is built
within all XetaWave Ethernet radios including its I/O Expander and new Terminal Server
(XetaTS). The XetaDC offloads the polling load from RTUs/PLCs/flow computers or a SCADA
host to another device such as a well pad I/O access point. In doing so, the XetaDC can
lower bandwidth consumption on licensed links by a factor of 10+, lower I/O loads on RTUs and PLCs, and eliminate hardware variances in the field for EFMs. In addition, the XetaDC
enables sensors from multiple vendors to be standardized into a single Modbus map and
concentrated for fewer polls such that only desired, and not extraneous, data is returned in
the sensor’s map. Through the XetaDC, the well pad can be standardized to both the RTU and SCADA polling host allowing single data point manipulation and resulting in lower management overhead. Using MQTT/Sparkplug B the XetaDC can publish data and report by exception over MQTT. The new XetaWave Terminal Server (XetaTS), pending Class 1 Div 2 certification, is an
industrial terminal server that is simple, reliable and cost effective. The XetaTS is ideally
suited for applications requiring COM ports, serial tuning, TCP/UDP sockets, or multiple
unicast functionality. The XetaTS supports TCP Terminal Sever, TCP Terminal Client, UDP
Terminal, and Multicast Terminal modes along with a serial-Modbus bridging feature.
The flexible interfaces of the XetaTS allow multiple serial devices and an Ethernet device
to be connected all at once.
The XetaTS is currently shipping and will support up to two radio modules. XetaWave is an Event Sponsor of the ENTELEC Fall Seminar and will be showcasing its
Founded in 2010, XetaWave is a leading provider of the industry’s most advanced, high performing, cost effective platform of software defined radios across multiple bands to meet the worldwide application needs of industries such as oil and gas, water and wastewater, electric power, railroads, and the military. The current platform of XetaWave radios includes Xeta9 (902‐960 MHz) dual band ISM/MAS, Xeta9‐XX Double X (902‐960 MHz) offering speeds up to 8.8 Mbps, Xeta1 (150‐232 MHz), Xeta2 (217‐222 MHz), Xeta3 (VHF/UHF 225‐380 MHz), Xeta4 (406‐512 MHz), Xeta7 (700 MHz), Xeta13 (1.3 GHz), Xeta14 (1.4 GHz), Xeta24 (2.4 GHz), XetaCS Communication (Master) Station, Ethernet and Serial IO and a Data Concentrator. XetaPAK is XetaWave’s advanced battery management system. All XetaWave radios and batteries are 100% designed, manufactured, and tested in‐house at its headquarters in Louisville, Colorado.
