Servelec Technologies, a market-leading global provider of end-to-end telemetry products and systems, is pleased to announce that its market-leading Kingfisher Plus modular RTU platform has been enhanced and now supports secure DNP3 file transfer.
Users of the Kingfisher Plus’ CP-30 processor unit can now update the firmware and configuration of the CP-30 processor unit using third party SCADA or a DNP Master station by Ethernet or Serial port. Secure DNP3 file transfer provides the ability for customers to manage their entire RTU infrastructure securely. RTU software updates and configuration held in SCADA can be deployed to an RTU using the same open protocol (DNP3) which is used for communications.
For more information including an application note explaining how to download firmware and configuration files using DNP3 file transfer please visit the Servelec Technologies Support Portal (access requires an account). To benefit from this upgrade, Kingfisher Plus users require firmware version 4408 or later and Toolbox Plus 4.2.0 or later.
