communication gateway / Ethernet / 3G / GPRS
Ethernet, 3G, GPRS, serial, Modbus, Modbus/TCP, Modbus RTU
Our secure gateway has been designed for particularly strong protocol conversion, network redundancy and SCADA automation (incl. IEC 61850). It is thus the perfect choice to set up, automize or retrofit generation plants, substations and other control networks requiring data concentration or conversion between several protocols, as for instance Modbus to Ethernet or IEC 61850 to DNP3.
The data collection from meters, protection relays, and other IEDs can be performed using any protocol, inlcuding IEC 60870–5, IEC 61850 (MMS/GOOSE), DNP3, DLMS, Modbus or Procome, whilst managing a microseconds timestamp resolution via NTP or PTP. Further, the iGW can also process and transfer the data to one or multiple control centers or SCADA master stations using upstream protocols such as IEC 104, IEC 101, TASE2.0/ ICCP (IEC 60870–6), IEC 61850–90‑2, DNP3, and Modbus RTU/TCP.
A network architecture based on iGWs is open, efficient and scalable, as it allows to integrate coming generations of devices (IEDs, sensors, routers etc.) and adapt to any kind of changes made to your power distribution network, saving you lots of time and money.
Secured, advanced and adaptable communication units suitable for all energy environments, from HV substations to power plants
Internal switch with RSTP/ PRP/ HSR redundancy for more reliability
2 Ethernet ports, 4 serial ports, and optional, internal 4G, 3G and GPRS modems
Collect information from up to 24 meters (up to 10,000 tags), process it with user-defined mathematical/logical operations and send the new data to control centers through any kind of communication network.
