Introduction.
What is an iMonitoring CCU-RTU?
Figure 1. CCU-RTU.
Ferguson Beauregard’s iNode Collection and Communications Unit with RTU Interface (CCU-RTU)
is a version of the iNodes CCU which collects data from iNodes sensors. The CCU-RTU then maps
the data to analog and digital outputs compatible with an RTU’s analog and digital inputs.
The CCU-RTU is significantly different from the standard iNodes CCU:
•
•
•
•
It is powered by the RTU.
It has no uplink modem (e.g. satellite modem), since data is forwarded by the RTU.
Collected data from iNodes sensors are mapped to RTU-compatible analog outputs.
Alarms from iNodes sensors are mapped to RTU-compatible digital outputs.
Principal features of the CCU-RTU:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Maps collected iNodes data and alarms to analog and digital outputs compatible with industry
standard RTUs.
Small, integrated package includes processing, data storage and radio communications.
Communicates with any Compact Flash Radio-enabled PC, including laptops, pen tablet PCs
and PDAs.
Rugged IP65-certified enclosure.
Field configurable and upgradeable.
Low cost.

Configuring the CCU-RTU.
Connecting a CCU-RTU to an RTU requires configuration of both units. RTU configuration is
dependent on the particular RTU. Refer to your RTU documentation for instructions on configuring
inputs, mapping, etc. The Ferguson Beauregard RTU5000 is shown in the following configuration
example.
The CCU-RTU is configured with Ferguson Beauregard’s iNodeConfig software. iNodeConfig will be
discussed in detail in the following sections. For now we will use an example where a CCU-RTU will
collect data from four iNodes and send that data to an RTU.
Configuring iNodes for collection.
Before the CCU-RTU can be configured, it must learn each sensor’s type, so that it can present the
correct options during configuration. The CCU-RTU supports the following iNode sensors:
•
•
•
•
•
•
TLM-1 (Tank Level Monitor, ultrasonic)
TLMe (Tank Level Monitor, ultrasonic)
TLM-3 (Tank Level Monitor, float)
WDS (Wireless Data Switch)
WPM (Wireless Pressure Monitor)
EFM (Electronic Flow Meter)
To configure the CCU-RTU,
1) Wire RTU power (+12VDC nominal) to CCU-RTU connector J8. (The board is silkscreened.
+12V and ground are clearly marked.)
2) After applying power, start iNodeConfig on your laptop or PDA.
3) Connect to the CCU-RTU.
4) Initially the Sites page (the first CCU-RTU page displayed) may be disabled as shown in Figure 5.
If so, enable the site by tapping Action > Enable Site.
5) Add the ESNs of all iNodes the CCU-RTU will collect, by tapping Action > Add iNode… An
entry box will pop up, shown in Figure 6. Enter the first iNode ESN and tap OK. Repeat this step
until you have entered all iNodes.
6) For the CCU-RTU to determine each iNode’s type, it must collect data from each iNode. NOTE:
All iNodes must be operating and in range of the CCU-RTU before collection.
7) Tap Action > Force Collection. A green LED on the CCU-RTU board will light. It will go out
after all data has been collected. Depending on the number of iNodes, this may take several
minutes.
8) When the LED goes out, tap Action > Refresh Site.. The device information in the righthand
window should now display the iNode type to the right of the iNode Name as shown in Figure 8.
You can now configure CCU-RTU data mapping.

CCU-RTU data mapping.
To send iNode data to an RTU, the CCU-RTU must map the iNode data to its outputs. The CCU-RTU
has two output types: analog, which sends a 0.25 - 4.75VDC voltage proportional to the measured
value, and digital, which sends an off / on level. Analog outputs are used with parametric data such as
pressure or level. Digital outputs are used for alarm conditions. (The conditions required to generate an
alarm are individually configured on each iNode. Refer to the iNode’s User Manual for instructions on
configuring alarms.)
Before mapping iNode data to CCU-RTU channels, first decide which iNode data you want to map.
Table 1 lists each iNode type and the parameters which can be selected for each type.
Table 1. iNode types and mapping parameters.
iNode Type
EFM
TLM1 / TLMe
TLM3

Map parameters
• Static pressure
• Differential pressure
• Temperature
• Level
• Top level
• Water level
• Pressure (0-500 psig)
• Pressure (0-6000 psig)
• Temperature
• Flow rate
A chart like the example shown in Table 2 is a good method of organizing your channel mapping plan.

To map iNode data to channels, use the following example.
1) Tap the Config tab. The Config screen will appear as shown in Figure 9. (Slide the vertical
slidebar down to see all the entries.) Notice that there are eight analog configuration items (iNode,
parameter) and four digital configuration items (iNode, parameter).
100469-22, Rev. (-)
Page 12
Figure 9. CCU-RTU configuration screen.
2) Tap the Channel 1 iNode value. In this example, the CCU-RTU will allow you to choose one of
the four iNodes from which it collected data: 25000528 (a TLM3), 11511683 (a WPM), 17500512
(an EFM2) or 25000057 (a TLM1). The CCU-RTU had to collect data from each of the iNodes
entered on the Sites page to learn its iNode type. Once the CCU-RTU knows each iNode’s type, it
will display the correct parameter selections for each iNode.
3) Choose 25000057 (the TLM1). Now tap the Channel 1 parameter value. There are two choices for
a TLM1: Unassigned (no data will be output), or Level (the channel will output a voltage between
0 and 5VDC which corresponds to the fluid level measured by the TLM1).
4) Tapping the Channel 1 iNode value again, choosing 25000528 (the TLM3), then tapping the
Channel 1 parameter will display a different parameter set: Unassigned, Top level or Water level.
5) You can map more than one parameter for the same iNode. For example, you could choose:
a) Channel 1: iNode = TLM3 (25000528), Parameter = Top level.
b) Channel 2: iNode = TLM3 (25000528), Parameter = Water level.
6) Continue to choose iNode ESNs and parameters until all the desired channels are mapped.
7) Tap Save to save the CCU-RTU mapping configuration.

iNodeConfig
Local communication with iNodes is necessary for configuration and maintenance. The same radio
system used to collect data from iNodes by the CCU also supports local communications. The local
communications software, called iNodeConfig, allows you to configure iNodes, set controls and view
or save data and configurations.
There are two versions of iNodeConfig: iNodeConfig-PDA, which runs on all PDAs with the
Windows CE operating system, and iNodeConfig-PC, which runs on laptops and PCs with Windows
2000, NT or XP. Both versions require an iMonitoring Compact Flash Radio card (CFR) installed in a
Compact Flash port. The two versions are made as similar as possible to minimize confusion if you
have to switch between a PDA and a laptop.
The following sections are presented, in most cases, by starting at the left most user screen and moving
to the right, one screen at a time. Each user screen as shown on the iNodeConfig screen toolbar is
denoted by bold type, e.g. “Data screen”. Configuration or selection items within each screen are
denoted by bold type, e.g. “Configure”.
In these sections you will be be instructed to “tap” a button or location on the screen. On the PDA,
tapping will mean actually tapping the button or location with the PDA stylus. On PCs, tapping will
mean moving the cursor over the button or location, then “tapping” with a mouse pad or clicking with
the left mouse button.
Wherever practical, the iNodeConfig PDA and PC screen figures will be shown side by side, so that
you can easily see the similarities and differences between them. In larger screens, the PDA screen
will be shown first and the PC screen will be shown second.
The main differences between iNodeConfig for the PC and PDA are:
•
•
•
The PDA version uses the Windows CE standard tools and features, particularly the keyboard
icon and OK button at the top right of the screen. The PC version uses the Windows standard
tools: the Minimize – Maximize – Close buttons at the top right of the screen, sizeable
windows, etc.
There is no keyboard icon in the PC version.
In the PDA version, the page tabs are across the bottom of the screen. In the PC version, the
page tabs are across the top of the screen.

iNodeConfig-PDA
iNodeConfig uses about 800KB of storage space on your PDA. There is no setup application; simply
copy the iNodeConfig fileset into a folder on the PDA. Use File Explorer to browse to the
iNodeConfig folder and touch the “iNodeConfig” icon to start iNodeConfig. See your PDA
documentation for instructions on copying files to folders and creating start menu icons.
iNodeConfig PDA screen layout
All iNodeConfig PDA screens have similar views and tools. To understand the instructions in the
iNodeConfig PDA section, you should become familiar with them. The Firmware page, which you can
choose to view after connecting to a TLM-3, contains most of the views and tools, which will be
referred to as follows:
•
•
•
OK button: The white circle at the top right of the screen containing the letters “ok”. If you tap
this button on this page, iNodeConfig will return to the Connection page (more on this later).
Upper window: Some pages have only one window; others, like the Firmware page, have two.
The upper window usually contains one or more items that can be selected.
Lower window: This window usually contains information items.

Keyboard icon: This is part of the PDA operating system. If you tap this icon, a keyboard will
pop up to allow you to enter text and numbers. iNodeConfig usually will pop up the keyboard
automatically if you tap an editable value.
Tab arrows: There is a tab to select each page. In most cases, not all tabs can be displayed at
the same time. You can tap the left (◄) and right (►) tab arrows to slide the tab set so you can
locate the tab you want to choose.
Firmware tab: Eight pages can be chosen after you connect to a TLM-3 with iNodeConfig.
These pages are chosen by tapping the tab of the page you want to see.
File menu: Most pages have pull-up menus, located at the bottom left of the screen. If you tap
a menu, one or more choices will pop up. File choices relate to importing and exporting types
of files into iNodeConfig.

Change these settings as needed, then tap the OK box to enable the changes and return to the Device
Selection screen, or tap the Cancel button to exit without making changes.
Contention takes place when another iNode, iNodeConfig or a SCADA radio system is transmitting as
you try to communicate with a device - the signals interfere with each other. iNodeConfig will detect
contention, display a Contention error and stop transmitting. If Ignore Contention is checked,
iNodeConfig will continue to transmit even if there is contention and no error will be displayed. This
is usually an undesirable setting, since it allows you to interfere with other device communications.
The default setting is disabled (unchecked).
Retries sets the number of times iNodeConfig will try to establish communications with an iNode
before quitting. In situations where there is more interference, more retries may be needed. You can
choose 0 through 10 retries (default = 3).
Show CFR status messages allows you to watch the communications progress and messages between a
CFR and an iNode. Expert users enable status messages when troubleshooting communications
problems. Leave this feature disabled unless instructed by iMonitoring.
Group IDs
Groups are used to prevent unauthorized access to iNode data. This feature is risky, as it is possible to
lock users out of devices if the group code is lost or forgotten. Contact iMonitoring for instructions on
the configuration and use of this feature.
User Levels
Three user levels are defined in iNodeConfig: Pumper, Installer and Administrator. A Pumper can
view data but not make configuration changes. An Installer can view data and fully configure the
iNode. The Administrator can change an iNode’s ESN, shut it down, etc. The default level is Installer.
Administrator level requires a password.
Demo Mode
Demo mode allows you to simulate viewing data and configuring an iNode without making
connection to a real device. This option is mainly used in training.

Collection screen
The CCU-RTU is normally configured to collect data from the iNodes in its Site list on a schedule.
The Collection screen allows you to set one to four independent daily or hourly collections.
The most frequent collection schedule would be to set all times to Hourly, then enter four separate
collection times. However you should be careful to leave enough time between collections for the
CCU-RTU to collect the data from all iNodes. A safe rule is to allow five minutes to collect data from
each iNode. Therefore if you have three iNodes in the Site, allow at least fifteen minutes between
collections.

Uplink Status. (Nonfunctional.)
Energy level. The battery charge level is displayed in percent. 70 to 80% indicates that the
battery is sufficiently charged.
RSSI margin (dB). The Received Signal Strength Indicator (RSSI) indicates the power
received by the CCU-RTU radio during the last communication with an iNode or CFR. This is
not especially useful. If RF problems are suspected, it is much more useful to check the Link
Stats log, discussed in the Sites section.
Self-test codes. When it is powered on or reset, the CCU-RTU runs several self-tests. The test
results display ‘OK’ if the test is passed, or a brief description of the failure if it fails.
o Radio test.
o Clock test.
o FLASH (memory) test.
o RAM status.
Reset source. The typical reset source is ‘Hardware reset pin & power-on’ (The hardware reset
pin is the reset button. There are several other reset sources. If another reset source is
displayed, it may indicate a problem with the CCU-RTU. Consult Ferguson Beauregard
customer support if you have a problem.)
