Modular RTU

Have you ever wanted an RTU you could use across all your sites but that had customizable expandability and flexibility at each site? That's precisely why this product was designed: to offer you mix-and-match capability for optimum customization. With this RTU you're able to install whichever user-swappable cards you would like to create the exact functionality you want out of your RTU. How's that for a perfect fit solution?

NetGuardian M6
The NetGuardian M6/Modular RTU offers support for user-swappable cards to mix-and-match capabilities, alarm, and control capacity.

These expansion cards slide into the back of the chassis and are secured with a simple screw.

Just slide the card in, secure to the chassis, and you're ready to go.
