Vsystem Scanners


RTUnet, an Australian RTU company, manufactures the Kingfisher line of RTUs. Vista Control Systems has the only scanner for the Kingfisher line that supports the Kingfisher video option and communicates in the native Kingfisher Series II protocol. This scanner is available for all platforms and supports all of the Kingfisher Series II communication methods.



This implements the MODBUS protocol over TCP/IP, serial lines, and radio links. Support is included for radio and modem serial links, as well as for hard-wired links. This scanner has controls for dial-up and radio links, supports client-data logging and average value logging for high performance systems, as well as direct serial links and TCP/IP connections. Thousands of devices from many manufacturers can communicate with this standard. A configuration utility is provided to setup the scanner, database, and data logging.


OPC is a standard way to connect to hardware--most hardware is supported by an OPC server from one or more vendors. The Vista OPC scanner will connect to OPC servers for other I/O hardware. It implements the OPC level 2 specification, and is presently supported on Windows NT/2000/XP only. Other Vsystem platforms will be supported upon request. Vista recommends using Vaccess/remote rather than DCOM when remote connections are required.


RTP Corporation RTP 2xxx series of controllers can be interfaced with Vsystem using the Vsystem RTP scanner. This scanner supports the standard RTP Ethernet connection and protocol.
