Introduction
Figure 1: ATU900
The D714x MkII family will now be designated ATU900 family and is a range of IP65/IP67 low-power
data logger/telemetry outstations. Four power options are available, each with their own method of
power back-up. These are D-cell battery powered with a second bank of D-cells as back-up, DC
powered with D-cell backup, DC powered with NiMH back-up and mains AC powered with NiMH backup. The name “ATU900” will be used throughout this manual as a generic name for all members of the
family unless specifically stated otherwise.
The many capabilities and small size of the ATU900 means that it is ideally suited to a wide range of
applications in the utilities and industrial markets. These include the monitoring of: •
Water Hydrology
•
•
Zonal distribution
Environmental
•
•
•
Industrial Pollution
Water and Sewage
Gas Installations
-
Rain
River
Tidal
Flood Warning
-

Pressure
Data logging, telemetry and local intelligence (sequences) are all combined in the one unit and thus the
need for separate outstations and data loggers is reduced. MODBUS, WITSDNP3, AquaCom, FSK and
SDI-12 protocols are available to accept input and output data from existing PLCs and intelligent
instrumentation thus integrating the islands of automation and information that may presently exist.
As a telemetry outstation, the ATU900 unit is capable of reporting alarm conditions as they arise. Stored
data can be retrieved at any time, over PSTN / GSM / GPRS or Satellite links to a Masterstation, or
locally via direct RS232 cable connection.
ATU900 User Manual

The ATU900 can be configured to implement a wide variety of logging strategies. Powerful bespoke
logging can be achieved when sequences are employed e.g. variable rate or combined event logging to
fit a daily, weekly or monthly pattern. The unit may be fully configured using Outstation Programming
Terminal for Windows (OPTwin) software, available from Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd.
Key features in this unit include: • Reduced power consumption using low-voltage electronics and advanced power
management.
• Proven multi-microprocessor system with integral self-diagnostic electronics.
• Glanded cables or military-style connectors for easy cable installation and removal.
• “Green” - alkaline and NiMH batteries with lower environmental impact.
• Increased battery capacity to reduce service requirements.
• Intelligent charging techniques to maximise battery capacity and service life.
• High-resolution analogue measurement – up to 16-bit possible.
• Wide variety of analogue inputs supported.
• Enhanced protocol set – Dynamic Logic FSK, AquaCom, MODBUS, SDI-12, WITSDNP,
and Ethernet.
• Support for both incremental and absolute shaft encoders.
• Optional interface to radio, GSM, GPRS and satellite equipment - configurable as RS232,
RS485 or Ethernet.
• Improved operating temperature specification with internal monitoring.
• Enhanced noise immunity
Caution
ATU900 units contain low-power CMOS
components that are static-sensitive. As with
all electronic equipment, standard ESD
precautions must be observed when opening
the enclosure to prevent possible damage
through static discharge.

The ATU900 range is designed to maximise energy efficiency and employs state-of-the-art power
management circuitry. The unit conserves power by switching into a “sleep” mode whenever possible,
where all but the highest priority functions are inactive. The unit “wakes” periodically to perform various
housekeeping duties, such as:
• Reading of digital and shaft encoder inputs.
• Count rate update.
• Time log / analogue conversion.
In addition, the unit will stay awake while carrying out particular functions:
• Analogue alarm delay.
• Digital output active.
• All external communications.
• Sequence wake states.
The unit is designed to conduct wake-state functions with optimum speed and efficiency. In order to
maximise battery life, it is recommended that the above functions be configured with care, keeping
wake-states to a minimum. Failure to observe this operational requirement may significantly reduce
battery life.
ATU900 User Manual

Installation
Note: ATU900 Series Outstations should only be opened by suitably qualified personnel, as
dangerous voltages may be present.
2.1
Environmental
The ATU900 utilises a polycarbonate enclosure rated to IP-67. The following environmental conditions
apply: Operating temperature: -10°C to +50°C.
Storage temperature: -10°C to +60°C.
Relative humidity:
0 to 95% @ 45°C (non-condensing).
2.2
Mechanical
It is recommended that the unit is mounted vertically on a stable structure, secured using screws or
bolts via the four mounting holes located in the enclosure corners – these apertures can be accessed by
removing the lid. All input cabling connects to the units via glanded cable assemblies or two-part
military-style connectors.
A dimensioned drawing of the ATU900 and enclosure is shown in Figure 2.
The main assembly comprises three PCBs mounted in a stack within the enclosure.
The bottom PCB in the stack is the main board housing all the CPU and interface electronics. It is
affixed directly to the mounting bosses at the bottom of the enclosure. Internal modems PSTN or
GSM/GPRS and RS232/RS485/SDI-12 and Ethernet modules plug directly into this board. The I/O
wiring and Signal Conditioning Modules (SCMs) also plug into this board via modular connectors.
Mounted above the main board are two additional boards. These power modules house the batteries,
power supplies, LCD and status LEDs as required. The primary power module, mounted above the
CPU board accommodates: • ten ‘D’ cell battery holders in battery-powered units,
• x ‘D’ cell battery holders in the case of DC powered units with D call backup.
• one or two NiMH Battery packs in the case of DC or Mains powered units
• an encapsulated power supply in the case of mains powered units
along with electronic circuitry to regulate the power on dc and mains units.
Mounted on the lid is the display board. The LCD and LEDs are fitted on the reverse side, facing
upwards towards the user. This board also contains the secondary power module, and may house a
further ten ‘D’ cell battery holders in battery powered units, allowing up to twenty batteries in total to be
fitted to the unit.
The PCBs are connected together such that in the case of the battery version all twenty batteries are
exposed simultaneously for easy changeover.
Caution
These battery banks should be changed one bank completely at a time to prevent any
data loss. Also polarity of all batteries must be carefully observed as described later in
this document.
A desiccant sachet is provided with the unit to protect against corrosion, dampness and condensation.
This material can be re-activated by placing the sachet in an oven at +120°C for four hours. The
material will last approximately one year before drying out is required, depending on the ambient
environmental conditions and the amount of time in which the enclosure lid is opened.
The unit is fitted with an internal sensor for measuring the enclosure temperature (an important
parameter when charging batteries) which can be checked using OPTwin.

Battery Power Supply
2.3.1 Alkaline Battery Power Supply
The battery-powered variant of the ATU900 range is designed to operate from up to twenty alkaline ‘D’
cells on two independent power supply boards. The battery holders are arranged in two arrays of ten.
These arrays are as below and the orientation is shown as if the unit is vertically wall-mounted i.e. the
lid folds down toward you.
CAUTION
The proper battery polarity is moulded into the battery holder and all batteries in the array MUST be
positioned correctly. Failure to do this can result in battery leakage and subsequent unit damage.
Ensure the batteries are inserted properly.
Figure 3: Alkaline Battery Holder Arrays
Electrical power is applied to the ATU900 electronics as soon as the last battery is inserted into the
battery holder. The working voltage of this unit is nominally 15Vdc. The condition of each battery array
is monitored by the system and alerts are generated if faults are detected. In addition, the gradual
decline in battery-array voltage is measured and when the levels drop below defined thresholds, the unit
can be configured to generate an alarm dial-out.
The gentle slope of the alkaline discharge curve means that low-battery warnings can be generated far
in advance of complete power failure, allowing reasonable time to change the cells. Eventually, when
the end-of-discharge-voltage (EODV) is reached, the unit will inhibit LED operation to extend the battery
life thus safeguarding plant and preserving data. The unit will remain in this state until the batteries are
replaced. Note: - new batteries must be replaced in one array at a time if data is to be preserved.
A dedicated fuse, adjacent to the holders, protects each battery array. The fuse will rupture if all the
batteries are inserted the wrong way round. However if only one battery is inserted with the wrong
polarity then this may lead to electrolyte leakage which will destroy the unit’s electronics and poses a
potential fire hazard. Reference should be made to the polarity symbols on the battery holders,
reproduced in Figure 3.
The operational life of alkaline batteries is largely defined by a combination of the following parameters:
•
Rated battery capacity.
The rated capacity of a particular alkaline ‘D’ cell is dependent on model and manufacturer.
Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd recommends that high-capacity batteries (Duracell M3,
Procell or similar) are used to reduce service requirements.
ATU900 User Manual
11
2.3.2
•
Shelf life.
All batteries are subject to loss of capacity due to self-discharge. A five to seven year shelf
life is quoted for Duracell M3 or Procell alkaline batteries. The shelf life of cheaper brands
may be considerably less.
•
Temperature.
Battery self-discharge increases above +50°C because of the deterioration of the chemical
cells. A more severe effect occurs below 0°C, in which the capacity is degraded due to a
reduction in electrochemical activity within the battery. Ideally, the unit should be protected
from temperature extremes.
•
Sensor loading
Sensors that are powered from the unit obviously place a load on it and therefore a drain on
the batteries. In terms of energy requirements, the most demanding sensors are incremental
shaft encoders, current transducers PSTN, GSM/GPRS and radio communications. Battery
service life can be maximised by the use of low-power sensors, by selecting low scan-rates
and by minimising the communications and log transfers.
•
Operational usage
The unit is designed to minimise the quiescent power requirements that occur during sleep
mode. The majority of battery energy is consumed during sequence wake-states and when
communications are active. Minimising these operations will extend battery life.
Alkaline Battery Removal and Replacement
CAUTION
When replacing batteries, always change one array at a time in order to ensure continuity of
supply. Failure to observe this procedure will cause loss of data. Ensure that the
batteries are inserted with the correct polarity as indicated on the battery holder.
•
•
•
•
•
Unscrew the two corner screws and open downward gently to expose the batteries.
The batteries are arranged in arrays as shown in Figure 3 – observe the battery polarities
shown.
Remove the cells in one array and replace with fresh batteries.
Repeat each battery in turn until all the batteries have been replaced.
Carefully replace the lid of the outstation, and firmly screw in place to ensure a good seal.
2.4
DC Power Supply
The dc-powered variant in the ATU900 range can be connected to an 11Vdc to 36Vdc supply. The dc
supply is protected with a slow-blow 20mm fuse. This fuse is designated FS5 and is located on the dc
power supply module. The unit should only be opened by suitably qualified personnel and the fuse
should only be replaced with one of the same type and rating.
WARNING
Short-circuiting when the unit is disassembled may damage live electronics.
Disconnect from the dc supply before removing the lid.
Battery back-up is provided in the event of mains failure either by optional alkaline batteries that are not
charged during normal operation or NiMH battery packs that are trickle charged and power cycled. This
allows the unit to dial out and report any power failure while continuing to operate for a period of time
without a dc supply, depending on ambient temperature and usage.
In the D-cell backup Pseudo Analogue 6 is the external DC Input monitor. This can be configured to
indicate when the dc power is disconnected. Alarm dial-outs may be generated on this input, thus
providing the facility to inform the Masterstation of DC power supply failure on site. Similarly Pseudo
Analogue 5 is the back-up battery monitor that can also be configured to dial out when the back-up
battery voltage is getting low.
In the case of the NiMH back-up Pseudo Analogues 7, 8, 9 and 10 can be used in battery pack
diagnostic. They may also be configured to cause a dial out when an abnormal condition arises.

Mains Power Supply
The mains powered variant in the ATU900 range can be connected to an 100Vac to 240Vac supply at
50Hz to 60Hz. The mains supply is protected with a slow-blow 20mm fuse. This fuse is located on the
mains power supply module. The unit should only be opened by suitably qualified personnel and the
fuse should only be replaced with one of the same type and rating.
WARNING
Electric shock hazard may be present when the unit is disassembled. Disconnect
from the mains supply before removing the lid.
Battery back-up is provided in the event of mains failure by NiMH batteries that are trickle charged
during normal operation. This allows the unit to dial out and report the mains failure while continuing to
operate for a period of time without a mains supply, depending on ambient temperature and usage
during this time.
Pseudo Analogue 11 is the Mains Fail monitor. This will be ‘Failed’ when the mains supply is
disconnected. Alarm dial-outs may be generated on this input, thus providing the facility to inform the
Masterstation of mains failure on site. Pseudo Analogues 7, 8, 9 and 10 can be used in battery packs
diagnostic. They may also be configured to cause a dial out when an abnormal condition arises.

Back-up Battery Power Supply (Mains version)
In the event of external supply failure, back-up power can be provided by one or two 9.6Vdc battery
packs. These packs are available from Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd and the basic mains powered
ATU900 comes with one NiMH cell fitted.
The mains units feature comprehensive battery management circuitry, designed to charge NiMH cells
safely and effectively. When two NiMH packs are fitted the batteries are conditioned to maximise
capacity and service life and are monitored to ensure availability of a reliable back-up supply. (i.e. the
batteries are checked regularly to ensure they have adequate capacity rather than assuming everything
is o/k until proven otherwise.). The description on this page is for two NiMH packs fitted.
Each pack is connected to a conditioning circuit that controls the battery charge and discharge cycles.
There are four modes of operation, listed as follows:
•
Trickle charge
The battery packs are subjected to a trickle charge regime to overcome self-discharge.
•
Fast charge
The battery packs receive full-rated charge current for up to eighteen hours.
•
Discharge
Periodically, a battery pack in turn is completely discharged to prevent a reduction in
capacity and then fully recharged. This cycle is then repeated for the other battery pack.
The packs are independent so one can supply the back-up power while the other is in a
discharged state.
•
Back-up powered
This mode is implemented when the mains fail and the unit is operating from the back-up
power.
Visual indications of the charger modes are provided by LEDs adjacent to each pack. The LEDs are
illuminated as shown in the following table:

2.6
Battery Safety and Disposal
Alkaline batteries do not contain heavy metals such as cadmium and are not classified as hazardous
waste. NiMH batteries have a lesser impact on the environment than other types of cells (i.e. NiCad
cells), but may still be subject to local regulations in some areas. It is recommended that the local
authorities be contacted to obtain their disposal guidelines.
Incorrect handling may cause the batteries to rupture, leak or decrease in performance. To prevent this,
please observe the following precautions:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
For best performance and longevity, it is recommended that alkaline batteries, such as
Duracell M3 or Procell, be used.
Replace battery with same type only. Using another battery may present a risk of fire or
explosion.
Do not short-circuit, disassemble, heat above 100°C or incinerate batteries.
Do not compact, mutilate or physically abuse the batteries.
Do not re-charge alkaline batteries.
Dispose of batteries promptly with observance of local guidelines.
Keep batteries away from children.

Modem Communications (units with internal modems only)
For communicating over PSTN it is recommended that the unit be connected to an ex-directory, data
quality, dedicated telephone line. Line loss must not exceed 27dB.
The ATU900 modem can operate in pulse or DTMF modes – in order to save power, it is recommended
that the ATU900 be connected to a DTMF telephone line that provides a quicker connection. If unsure
of the type of telephone line connected to the unit, contact your service provider.
PSTN can be used as a fallback option if GSM, GPRS, Radio or Private Wire is used as primary
communication. Full configuration and set-up of the fallback functionality including timeouts is detailed in
the OPTwin manual.

2.7.1 Connecting to the Telephone Line (units with internal modems only)
The ATU900 modem is ready for connection to the PSTN. Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd strongly
recommends that a Lightning Protection Unit (LPU) is used with every ATU900 outstation. An LPU is
located between the telephone line and the ATU900 as shown in Figure 4. A suitable LPU for PSTN
applications is available from Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd. If using a Lightning Protection Unit then
reference to the LPU instruction should be made.

2.7.2 Connecting to the GSM network (units with internal GSM units only)
The ATU900 GSM is ready for connection to Vodafone, O2 or Orange GSM networks; however the SIM
card inserted into the units must be an analogue data SIM and set accordingly. This analogue data
service is also known as Circuit Switched Data or CSD. The SIM can be obtained from your network
service provider. For further information regarding telephone number configuration and set-up please
refer to the OPTwin manual.
2.7.3 Connecting to the GPRS network
The ATU900 GSM modem is suitable for connection to Vodafone, or Orange GPRS and can be
configured to operate either as a Server or as a Client. Server Mode requires the unit to be fitted with a
fixed IP address SIM card. Configuration of the GPRS interface is performed using the OPTwin
configuration tool and details of this are in the OPTwin manual.
2.7.4 Connecting to the LEO Satellite.
The ATU900 is ready for connection to a LEO, (low earth orbit), satellite system in two flavours.
• Satellite modem to satellite modem, thus eliminating any dependence on terrestrial
telecommunication network infrastructure
• Satellite modem to PSTN modem eliminating the need for remote PSTN installation costs where
none already exist.
The data transfer speed is 2400Baud. Currently the ATU900 will control the external power to the
satellite modem so that remote unattended battery operation is a viable option.
For further information regarding Satellite number configuration and set-up please refer to the OPTwin
manual.
2.8
CPU Reset
The ATU900 unit is monitored by sophisticated watchdog circuitry. In the unlikely event of the outstation
“hanging up” then a pushbutton, mounted on the power supply board, is provided for manual reset. Note
that logged data and unit configuration are unaffected by pressing this button. However, depending on
their type, some sequences may require to be re-started (via OPTwin).

2.9.2 Local Display Interface
The local interface operates in conjunction with the integral display components detailed in the previous
section. Two switches are concealed behind the LCD and MODE labels on the lid which are operated
using the orange Data Collector key supplied with the unit. To activate the LCD, briefly place the flat end
of the key on the LCD label and then remove in a “dabbing” motion. This should initiate a scrolling
display, in which the salient details such as sensor data, status information etc. are shown in a
sequential manner (if required the ATU900 can be programmed so that only important data is
displayed). To freeze the scroll at a particular point, dab the MODE label. To continue scrolling, dab the
MODE label again. Finally, the display can be de-activated by dabbing the LCD label. In the absence of
user activity, the LCD will automatically de-activate after 30 minutes.
An additional switch is concealed behind the test DIAL. In units fitted with PSTN or GSM modems,
dabbing the test DIAL label will cause the unit to dial the number in the test dial phone field and transmit
a low-level alarm. The unit reports the result of the test dial on the LCD.
2.10
Input / Output Capabilities
The full I/O capability is described in Sections 1 and 4 of this document. The customer specifies the
exact I/O mix at the order stage.
2.10.1 I/O Wiring
The ATU900 unit is fitted with circular military –type connectors or glanded, flying leads to suit the I/O
requirements of the unit. The pin assignments of each connector are specified in the appendices of this
ATU900 User Manual
17
document. The connectors are rated to IP-65 on standard units. Unused connectors are fitted with dust
caps.
Note: where possible, the sensor wiring should have the signal and return wires running
together as twisted pairs. In order to minimise noise-related problems, ensure that the sensor
wiring is separate from any mains or three-phase supplies that may be present on site.
2.10.2 Digital Inputs
Up to thirty-two digital inputs can be connected to an ATU900 unit. Volt-free contacts, open collector
and open-drain inputs are supported as shown in the drawing below.

The digital inputs are protected against reversal, transients, AC mains interference and contact bounce.
2.10.3 Count (Accumulator) Inputs
Count inputs provide a totalled count for digital inputs Using OPTwin, any digital input can be configured
as a count input. Volt-free contacts, open collector and open-drain inputs are supported. The following
states can be counted:
• Opening contacts.
• Closing contacts.
• Opening and closing contacts.
Each count input can be configured with up to two independent trip points. These trip points (Rate Alarm
detectors – RADs) may be used to trigger an alarm dial-out or an ‘event’ log on breaching a set value in
any direction.
2.10.4 Digital Outputs
The four/eight digital outputs utilise single pole normally open photoMOS relay contacts to provide
switching functions. These outputs may be configured to close for any period up to 65535 seconds. As
the unit is intended primarily for low-power operation, it is recommended that these outputs be used to
provide brief and infrequent signals e.g. process or initialisation.
To comply with the low-voltage directive, voltages applied to the digital output relay contacts must be
limited to 24Vdc (0.5A maximum) or 24Vac (0.5A maximum), thus complying with safe extra low voltage
(SELV).
Note: All dangerous live voltages greater than SELV (50Vac or 75Vdc) must be
terminated externally to the ATU900 enclosure, and be isolated from the ATU900
circuitry e.g. via interposing relays.
18
ATU900 User manual
When wiring digital outputs to plant it is preferable to run a twisted-pair from the outstation to the power
supply unit and relay, where possible. This reduces the risk of RFI pick-up.
2.10.5 Incremental Shaft Encoders
The ATU900 unit has the option of supporting up to two incremental shaft encoders. These encoders
should be located as close as possible to the ATU900 to reduce any electrical or RFI noise interference
affecting readings. The
cabling between the
ATU900 and the shaft
encoders should be of high
quality manufacture with
twisted cores, have an
overall screen and be low
capacitance and low
resistance. The adjacent
diagram gives a
representative view of the
internals of the incremental
shaft encoder.
The ATU900 unit employs
both hardware and software
strategies to ensure the
integrity of the incremental
shaft encoder readings
without needlessly
sacrificing battery life.
However, in the case of the
battery powered units, care
should be exercised to
ensure the sampling rate is
fast enough to follow the
Figure 6: Incremental Shaft Encoder schematic
speed of rotation without
being over fast and
sacrificing battery life. If
rapid sampling is required and battery life is at a premium (i.e. installed in remote locations), then it may
be that the better option is to implement an absolute shaft encoder system. Please contact Xylem Water
Solutions UK Ltd Limited for advice.
ATU900 User Manual
19
2.10.6 Absolute Shaft Encoders
The ATU900 unit has the option of
supporting one absolute or grey code
shaft encoder. As with all digital inputs
shaft encoders should be located as
close as possible to the ATU900 to
reduce any electrical or RFI noise
interference affecting readings. The
cabling between the ATU900 and the
shaft encoder should be of high quality
manufacture with twisted cores, have an
overall screen and be low capacitance
and low resistance. The adjacent
diagram gives a representative view of
the internals of the absolute shaft
encoder.
The ATU900 unit employs both
hardware and software strategies to
ensure the integrity of the absolute shaft
encoder readings without needlessly
sacrificing battery life. However, in the
case of the battery powered units, care
should be exercised to ensure the
Figure 7: Absolute Shaft Encoder schematic
sampling rate is fast enough to follow the
speed of rotation, (sampling at least
twice the maximum rotational speed is required), without being over fast and sacrificing battery life.
Please contact Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd for advice.
2.10.7 Analogue Inputs
The ATU900 unit will support up to eight analogue inputs. The inputs are galvanically isolated from the
unit and are configured using a range of plug-in Signal Conditioning Modules (SCM). Each supported
sensor input type, and corresponding SCM number is listed in the following table:
Sensor Type

The required SCMs are specified at the customer order stage. The plug-in design allows field retrofits to
be accomplished with relative ease.
The ATU900 unit is fitted with integral power supplies for sensor excitation. To save energy, the sensors
are powered during the scan interval only. Two supply options are available:
• 12Vdc for current and voltage sensors
• 2.048Vdc for potentiometric sensors
Using OPTwin, the unit may be configured with a pre-scan power-up time to power the sensor prior to
measurement. This starts at 1mS and has an upper limited depending on the firmware version in the
outstation. Outstations with firmware version 2.021 and greater and pic firmware versions 1.10 or 1.11
can have a pre-power time of up to 60 seconds. OPTWin Version 2.01 or greater is also required to
enable this to be set. Units with firmware earlier than these releases are limited to 1999mS.

2.10.8 MODBUS
The ATU900 unit will support MODBUS data both from the masterstation via a dial-up connection and to
other outstations / PLCs hardwired onto either of the optional RS232 or RS485 serial communications
module. A maximum of 32 outstations / PLCs may be daisy chained on the RS458 data bus each
individually addressed and scanned. (Note the maximum of 32 assumes that each PLC has the same
single data-type e.g. digital inputs.) This maximum of 32 is reduced by each of the different types of
inputs present e.g. if digital inputs and digital outputs are to be read in or out of each of the attached
PLCs then the maximum number of PLCs that can be attached is reduced to 16. Similarly if digital
inputs and outputs along with analogue inputs and outputs are to be read then the maximum number of
PLCs that can be attached is reduced to 8.
The ATU900 unit can be configured to be master, where it will control the polling and data transfer to
other MODBUS units / systems, or it can be set to be a slave where it will respond to other MODBUS
masters.
The ATU900 MODBUS can be configured to communicate RTU or ASCII protocol. Note however that
the serial port settings differ depending on the type of MODBUS selected. Both options are given below:
• MODBUS RTU – 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity
• MODBUS ASCII – 7 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity
A fully integrated solution is available where MODBUS inputs and outputs are treated as native direct
inputs and outputs. The ATU900 unit will time-stamp these inputs on receipt from the PLC. These may
subsequently be used in sequences or other ATU900 control or monitoring strategies.
Note however that inputs from the MODBUS port will not be available at exactly the same time as
native inputs therefore any strategy that combines local and MODBUS inputs to form alarm or
control actions must take this delay into account.
With the limitations of processing power and memory and providing concurrent MODBUS and SDI-12
capability the maximum inputs and outputs that can be treated as native inputs and outputs are as

An alternative method of interfacing to MODBUS data is PASSTHRU mode. This is in effect MODBUS
in and MODBUS out. The ATU900 does not perform any processing on the data but becomes a
telemetry MODBUS data gateway. In this mode there is no effective limit on the I/O other than what the
PLC(s) already place. In this mode the limit on the number of external PLCs able to be connected to the
RS485 data bus is 32.

Communications
There are five communication ports available on the ATU900 with Com 0 reserved for local
configuration / interrogation. The remaining four are flexible and can be configured with communication
modules to suit the particular users’ needs. Note however only 1 Master and one Secondary remote
communications module is allowed. The remaining two ports are available for communicating with
MODBUS in either RS232 or RS485 format and for SDI-12. Note also that only one MODBUS and one
SDI-12 may be used and that the SDI-12 module must be located in Comm 1 or Comm 2 position.
3.1
Masterstation (units with remote communication modules only)
The ATU900 outstation communications with Masterstations can be either outgoing (alarm) or incoming
(interrogation). The following sections describe the general sequence of events in both alarm and
interrogation modes.
3.1.1 Alarm dial-outs
Up to five different telephone numbers may be programmed into the ATU900 unit, each up to eighteen
digits long (including pauses). The status of each telephone number may be designated as Master or
Back-up.
Each Sensor configured on the ATU900 for alarm dial-outs may be linked to any back-up number via
the special phone index (see OPTwin guide). When an alarm condition arises on that sensor, then the
corresponding backup is promoted to Master status for that alarm condition only.
On waking from the low-power “sleep” mode, if a valid alarm is detected, the unit will dial ALL enabled
Master telephone numbers in order (from 1 to 5). If a number fails to respond it will go on to the rest of
the numbers before retrying the failed one. Backup telephone numbers will be dialled if ANY Master
telephone number has failed to respond correctly. They will be dialled, in order, until a successful
attempt to ONE of them has been made.
Each telephone number will be tried in turn up to four times, with a delay of one minute between
different numbers and three and a half minutes before dialling the same failed number again.
3.1.2 Interrogations
Approximately six seconds after detecting an incoming-ringing signal the ATU900 unit will answer the
call and commence communications with the interrogating equipment. Once communications have
finished, the ATU900 and the interrogating equipment will release the communications path line. The
unit will then return to “sleep” mode.
3.2
Outstation Programming Terminal for Windows (OPTwin)
OPTwin is a proprietary application program available from Xylem Water Solutions UK Ltd. It may be
used to both configure and interrogate an ATU900 unit. The host PC must be IBM-compatible, running
Microsoft Windows 95 or better.
The host PC may be connected locally to the ATU900 unit on COM 0 using RS232. Alternatively, the
PC may remotely access the outstation via the PSTN or GSM links. The details are given in the
following sections.
3.2.1 Local OPTwin (RS232)
Local communications requires a custom cable to connect from an RS232 serial port of a host PC to the
local RS232 programming port connector on the ATU900 enclosure. The connection will automatically
activate the LCD and LEDs. Details of this cable are provided in the appendices
The communication settings in the host PC must be configured in OPTwin to match the settings on the
ATU900 unit. The usual data format is 8-bit, no parity, 1-stop bit. The transmission speed is set at
115200 baud.
24
ATU900 User manual
3.2.2 Remote OPTwin (units with remote communication modules only)
Remote communications require no additional wiring or setting up at the ATU900 but make use of a
compatible PSTN modem or GSM / GPRS or Satellite module connected to the host PC.
On detection of an incoming call, e.g. the ringing signal on PSTN, the ATU900 will “wake-up”.
Approximately six seconds later it will answer the call and commence communications with the host PC.
Once communications are finished, the ATU900 and the host PC will release the communication line
and the outstation will then return to “sleep” mode.
Full details for using OPTwin and ATU900 programming are covered in the OPTwin Operators Guide.
3.2.3 Local interrogation (RS232)
The ATU900 unit can also be interrogated by data gathering equipment via the local RS232 port in the
manner described in the previous sections.

The RS485 option can be configured as either a 2 wire or 4 wire RS485 multi-drop interface and has
two links (LK1 and LK2) for connecting the terminating resistors on the final ATU900 in a multi-drop
RS485 network. Link LK4 is used to provide external power at either 12V or 15 Volts. The maximum
current that can be drawn is 80mA.

3.5.3 SDI-12 Interface Card
The Serial Data Interface at 1200 baud (SDI-12) option is an asynchronous, ASCII Serial
communications card that provides the means for interfacing to intelligent sensory instruments.
Note: This card can only be installed in communication ports Comm 1 or Comm 2.
Included on the card is the means of supplying +12V (LK 3 between 1&2) or +15V (LK 3 between 2&3)
On-board these cards are 3 diagnostic LEDs controlled either from the main microprocessor or

ATU900 User manual

•
For battery powered ATU900s, only one Ethernet port is available a) because of the physical
size constraints and b) because of the electrical power required when driving dual Ethernet
channels would deplete the D-cell batteries in a very short time.
For DC powered ATU900s with D-cell back-up the comms expander circuitry and single
Ethernet channel is available. Physical space limitations prevent the second Ethernet channel
being present.
The D-cell battery back-up may be replaced with smaller NiMH battery packs. In this instance
dual Ethernet channels are available at the expense of battery back-up time.
For AC powered ATU900s full comms and dual Ethernet is available.
Dual Port Comms Expander Card
The diagnostic LEDs are the 2 normal LEDs on each Ethernet socket.
The card is defined for dual serial communication and/or dual Ethernet at order time.

Sequences
Sequences are user-written programs that provide flexible, local processing, calculation and control
facilities within the ATU900 outstation, giving them a high level of local intelligence.
Up to sixteen individual sequences may be concurrently active within the ATU900 with varying degrees
of interaction possible, together with automatic re-start on power-up (if this is required).
Each sequence program may accept up to ten parameters, which are then allocated to specific I/O or
values at download time.
In addition to the full range of real I/O, the sequences may also write data to and read data from:•
