User’s Manual
1 Introduction
The Scout-RT SPLC is the most user-friendly and reliable remote monitoring and alarm
notification system available. The Scout provides reading and writing of PLC/Modbus
registers over a serial link using the Modbus RTU protocol.
Mounted in an industrial aluminum enclosure, the Scout provides simple programming
either locally through the integral keypad or via a local PC connection.
1.1
General Operation
The Scout reads inputs from a PLC or other Modbus device over a serial cable. Any
input channel in the Scout can read/write the following registers from a PLC.
Function
Read coils
Read Holding
Write Coil

Modbus Function Code
01
03
05
06
The Scout supports reading from multiple Modbus IDs, as each channel references a
unique PLC point specified by:
Modbus slave ID
Register type
Register number
The Scout has 2 modes of operation – PROGRAM and RUN. During PROGRAM mode
you can change how the Scout operates. During RUN mode the Scout is monitoring and
performing alarm notification.
The Scout monitors up to 24 inputs continuously. When any one of the inputs changes
from the normal-alarm or alarm-normal condition, the Scout immediately informs the
Antx Tracking web-based system which records the information and issues any alarm
notification methods specified.
When any monitored channel goes into and out of the alarm condition, the Scout
automatically sends information to the Antx Tracking system via the internal GSM/GPRS
modem.
NOTE: In this version, the phone-based alarm notification has been made available.
1.1.1
Antx Tracking Alarm Acknowledgment
Alarms are acknowledged remotely by pressing the ‘1’ key on your phone keypad when
requested by the Antx Tracking system. Antx Tracing informs you that the alarm has
been “acknowledged”.

3 Front Panel Programming
The Scout is programmed from the front panel by pressing the keypad to access the
various portions of the system. For the most basic application, you can simply program
some channels and put the Scout into the RUN mode.
In more complex applications, you can program individual names for each channel being
monitored, adjust the amount of time channels must be in the alarm condition before
starting the call to Antx Tracking and other specific conditions.
When programming, all prompts are displayed. You can enter a value or press the # key
to keep the current value and move to the next option.
NOTE: When you have finished programming, return the Scout to the RUN mode by
pressing the 1 key. If the Scout is not in RUN mode, it will not perform any alarm call
operations.
If you forget to return the Scout to RUN mode, it will automatically return to RUN mode
after 30 minutes.

8 Verifying Communication
When a channel is configured to read from a PLC or Modbus device, the Scout reads all
channels every ½ second. If the Scout is not able to communicate correctly, the state of
the Communication channel (05) will show an alarm.
NOTE: If communication with a Modbus device is lost, the Communication channel will
not go into alarm until the Alarm Delay period, which is defaulted to 10 seconds.
To verify that the Scout is reading values correctly, look at the Status (0) of the
Communication channel (05).
Serial communication channel indicates
that all communications is operating
properly.

10 Acknowledging alarms
NOTE: This capability is ONLY available if the GSM SIM card supports voice calling.
If the Scout is only being used to alarm via Antx Tracking, then this capability is not
available.
A channel goes into alarm when it transitions out of the normal condition specified in the
Alarm State.
For example, if a channel has an Alarm State of Normally Open, then the channel goes
into alarm when the input closes. The channel will stay in alarm as long as the input is
closed. If the Alarm Type is set to Latching, then it will stay in alarm, even if the input
goes back to open, until the channel is acknowledged.
When any channel goes into alarm and the Channel Mode is set to Call on Alarm, the
Scout will start calling the phone numbers in the Phone List. It will continue to call
through the list of phone numbers until the channel goes out of alarm or until it is
acknowledged.
When acknowledged, the Scout will stop calling and wait the time specified by the Ack
Redial Delay before starting to call again if the channel is still in the alarm condition.
10.1 Acknowledge from the keypad
While in RUN mode, press the ACK key.
The Scout will change the display information for the channel(s) in alarm from Alarm to

15 Replacing the Backup Battery
The Backup Battery is continually monitored by the Scout to confirm that it is supplying
enough power to run the Scout. If it is not, then the Low Battery (02) alarm will be
activated.
This alarm is caused by:
1. the Scout has lost Primary Power, is running on the battery and is low on
power, or
2. the battery cannot be recharged, which should take 6-12 hours.
The Backup Battery is located inside the enclosure. You will have to remove the front
panel from the enclosure to expose the battery.
Step 1
Battery replacement procedure
If panel mounted, dismount the enclosure by loosening the screws holding
the enclosure to the panel.
Step 2
Remove the four (4) nuts that hold the front cover to the enclosure.
Step 3
Slowly tilt the top edge of the front cover away from the enclosure to expose
the cable connecting the electronics to the battery.
Step 4
Put the front cover in a safe place and remove the battery bracket and
battery.
Step 5
Put the new battery in the bracket with the leads facing the left-hand side of
the enclosure.
Step 6
Reattach the battery cable and front cover.
Step 7
Mount the enclosure back in place.
NOTE: be careful when removing the front panel as it holds the electronics and there is
a cable between the electronics and the battery.
