Honeywell ControlEdge™ RTU Remote Terminal Unit

Honeywell’s ControlEdge RTU is a modular, powerful and scalable process controller that provides efficient remote monitoring, diagnostics and asset management. It helps facilities effectively manage complex remote automation and control applications by converting process data into relevant, actionable information.

ControlEdge RTU features low power consumption, rugged design, efficient commissioning and remote decision-making through on-board HART, on-board wireless I/O, and ISASecure Level 2 cyber security protection. Its flexible communications allows for deployment in both existing and new network types. It features communications capability, data logging and history backfill. Users can locally store critical data during a communication outage or low-bandwidth periods, for recovery of data at a later time.​

ControlEdge Builder is the RTU’s integrated tool for designing, configuring, programming and maintaining the unit. It is compliant with IEC 61131-3 and supports languages such as Ladder Diagram, Function Block Diagram, Structured Text and Sequential Function Chart.

ControlEdge RTU is ideal for oil and gas applications, like well head monitoring and control, gas flow metering, pump and processor control, block valve automation, and data concentration. This system reduces travel to the field, cuts configuration time by up to 80 percent, and reduces equipment monitoring and diagnostic time from hours to minutes.

Key Specifications

  • Operates in harsh environments with low power consumption – ideal for remote installation and operation on solar power
  • Increased availability through native controller redundancy – no switch required for I/O communication
  • Hart-enabled onboard I/O and expansion I/O modules
  • Removable and plug-in terminal blocks simplify wiring and reduce time for cabinet assembly
  • Built-in HART I/O, onboard wireless I/O and ISA100 field instrument integration with Field Device manager
  • Efficient remote management across hundreds to thousands of RTUs to reduce equipment monitoring and diagnostic time from hours to minutes.
  • Electronic Flow Metering (EFM) capability for both gas and liquids per API 21.1 and 21.2
  • First RTU on the market to receive ISASecure® Embedded Device Security Assurance (EDSA) Level 2 certification
