  • Access data with standard interfaces.
  • Quickly integrate with IT and IOT systems.
  • Provide mobile workforce with easy to access data
Alarm Management

Alarm Management functionality eliminates wasted site visits, improving operational performance, productivity and response time.

The TBox MS as well as the entire TBox RTU range use push communications to send multimedia messages to defined groups and devices using escalation and shift management protocols and the 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.

Discover how theTBox-MS provided pipeline monitoring and control in extreme tempreatures for a major long-distance oil pipeline.
