Remote Operating Terminal Enables Plant Managers to Reduce Operation Costs, Optimize Productivity and Increase Plant Safety

Eaton's MTL GECMA RT remote operating terminal enables plant managers to reduce operation costs, optimize productivity and increase plant safety. The terminal increases safety and productivity in the plant through its state-of-the-art technology and unique modular design. The MTL GECMA RT has a unique modular design and is a next generation remote terminal which features state-of-the-art technology to offer unparalleled levels of safety, making it ideal for use in hazardous EX zone areas in chemical, pharmaceutical, refinery and oil and gas industries worldwide.

The MTL GECMA RT consists of five electronic modules; the display unit, power supply, communications modules, keyboard and mouse. The terminal’s modularity means upgrades to existing installations are quick and easy, which can save time, and minimise costly maintenance and downtime. In the past, the whole unit would have been dismantled off site, now with MTL GECMA RT, individual parts can be replaced on site, increasing plant availability. The modules are individually approved to global hazardous certification for Zone 1 environments. This offers safe handling on site and independent of the housing, and guarantees high reliability worldwide.
