DATRAN VI Software v6.77
Our Future for TCP and Digital Radios

We recently introduced a major release of DATRAN VI SCADA software.
This release is the result of an extensive development project to ensure DATRAN's core is capable of supporting your future needs.
Version 6.77 provides major TCP/IP improvements and enhanced future scalability, as the need for data volumes increases.

More and more DATRAN systems are adopting Ethernet TCP/IP, digital radios and 4G cellular options to communicate with DATRAN RTUs.
Version 6.77 is a strategic development to provide all our loyal users with a robust TCP platform, as demands for increased data volume and faster communication networks continues.
A corresponding update for DATRAN Supervisor has also been released. Supervisor v.3.65 maximises the new capabilities of DATRAN VI and provides several new requested features.

Digital Radio - Application

The design for this Water Treatment Plant telemetry system uses our 900MHz QDR digital radios.
QDRs provides a wireless RS232 or RS485 radio ink and is lower power and more cost effective than conventional radio.
QDRs are ideal for concentrating remote sensors into a central control room and they have a range of several kilometres.
