Site Monitoring SIMPLIFIED

Robust Connectivity

Summit exclusively uses IP connectivity to backhaul site data. Using a number of industry standard protocols, such as SNMP, SMTP, HTTP/HTTPS, secured data can be sent to either TASC Systems own Element Manager, Apex or to an existing EMS or NMS package.


Summit offers over 100 total channels of interface. This is split into 16 Control outputs, 48 Digital Inputs, 32 Analog Inputs (0-48v / 4-20mA), and 4 Analog Outputs. In addition to conventional I/O the Summit also delivers a total of 8 configurable serial ports. (RS232/422/485) Optionally all conventional I/O on Summit can be electrically isolated for use in sensitive, negative, or ground isolated systems.

Designed for simple deployment

Summit’s full complement of digital, analog, and serial I/O allows it to be quickly integrated into existing site infrastructure. Consuming just 1U of rackspace to aggregate over 100 points of I/O makes Summit the Communication Industries most I/O efficient gateway while respecting valuable rack density.

Sleek, Ultra-Efficient Design

While function is the most important design criteria for industrial products, the aesthetic of a device should complement its primary objective. The minimalist design of Summit is a nod to its efficiency. Its solid aluminum chassis complements its power.

Summit also includes local storage for data logging and optional custom software applications and plug-ins.

Engineered for the Back Country

Because the optimal location for critical equipment is often not the optimal location for support services, power, backhaul, etc. Summit has been engineered to consume the absolute minimal amount of resources while delivering its full complement of features. Consuming at maximum only 290 mA Summit is on average 4-5 times more efficient when compared to the competition.

Familiar Interface

Summit uses the ubiquitous RJ45 connector for its I/O interface. Compared to some units that use difficult to wire and costly D-sub connectors, Summits RJ45s are simple and quick to terminate while being incredibly reliable. When combined with a 110 patch panel the installation of a Summit becomes even more efficient. Further, as most commercially available cat5e and cat6 cables are shielded, Summit and the I/O at the site can directly benefit from improved signal integrity with no added cost or effort.

Enclosure Options

Summit is deployable in a range of physical formats. The standard 19” rack configuration occupies just 1U of rack space making it the industries most dense RTU device. Standard DIN rail mounting hardware is available for applications where rack-mount equipment is not used. In outdoor or uncontrolled environments a NEMA4 rated enclosure is available to ensure reliable function even in the most harsh conditions.

Powered by Crest OS

Powering every Summit is TASC Systems industrial IoT operating system, Crest. Developed from the ground up by TASC Systems, Crest is a mission critical Linux derived operational platform with enhanced security features that provides Summit its ability to interact with various IoT platforms and protocols.

Industrial Internet of Things

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), also known as the Industrial Internet, brings together brilliant machines, advanced analytics, and people at work. It’s the network of a multitude of devices connected by communications technologies that result in systems that can monitor, collect, exchange, analyze, and deliver valuable new insights like never before. These insights can then help drive smarter, faster business decisions for industrial companies.
