Announcing our New Network Base Station - RTR-500NW/500AW for US

September 2010 marks a new addition to our RTR-500 Series: the newly designed powerful Network Base Station RTR-500NW/AW.
The RTR-500NW/AW, a network base station with built-in LAN capabilities, comes in two models: the RTR-500NW for a wired LAN and the RTR-500AW for a wireless LAN connection.

The RTR-500NW/AW can serve as a Base Unit with any of our RTR-500 Series Data Loggers as Remote Units. By having the RTR-500NW/AW automatically download recorded data from registered Remote Units (Data Loggers) and transmit the data via e-mail or to an FTP server, it is possible to share and manage data over a network.
In addition to automatically collecting and transmitting recorded data, the RTR-500NW/AW can also send warning reports via e-mail or issue a warning via contact output when a Remote Unit has entered or recovered from a warning condition.
Furthermore, sending data to the “T&D WebStorage Service” allows for the viewing and downloading of recorded data, monitoring of current readings, and monitoring of the battery status of the Remote Unit(s) via a Web Browser from anywhere, anytime.

Experience our versatile user-friendly Network Base Station RTR-500NW/AW with enhanced functional capacity!
