Designed for Energy NetworksOur products offer full interoperability without compromise
iRTUs are frequently employed as bay controllers or substation gateways. They can collect and process data from IEDs and report it directly to the control center. For full interoperability, iRTUs carry several ports and are able to communicate with all common protocols and map old serial IEDs to IEC 61850 logical nodes.
iControl SCADA is the most comfortable and simple tool to monitor and control any grid, substation or generation plant. Its intuitive interface helps you save time while automating your electrical facility and it offers all essential SCADA features, such as busbar coloring, redundant control schemas, RBAC or the IEC 61850 protocol.
The iGWlite was specifically designed for protocol conversion and other gateway functionalities in energy applications and can thus handle the full iGrid protocol suite. Although it takes little space on a DIN-Rail, it provides 1 Ethernet and 1 RS485/RS422 port and can also carry an optional RS-232 port (copper or fiber) or a 2G/3G/4G modem.
iRTUe remote expansion units can be freely conntected to iRTU/iGW devices and third party master units to fulfill all sorts of command and acquisition requirements.
They can communicate with IEC 61850 GOOSE messaging or Modbus TCP/RTU and offer flexible I/O board configurations, such as 48 DI, 16 relays, 16 AI, 24 DI + 8 relays, 24 DI + 8 AI or 8 relays + 8 AI.
The iGW-VM is a substation automation gateway application with particularly strong communication capabilities, available for Debian Linux and Windows. It supports redundant architectures and can act as extremely scalable bay controller, RTU, substation gateway, or communication front-end for SCADA systems, connecting to more than a thousand IEDs.
iGWs provide particularly strong protocol conversion and automation features (incl. IEC 61850). The S‑Series features an embedded Ethernet switch with 4 Ethernet ports and RSTP/ HSR/ PRP redundancy. iGWs are thus the perfect choice to set up, automize or retrofit generation plants and high voltage substations requiring complex data conversion between several protocols.
The Right Solution for Your Energy Automation ProjectOur technical staff is ready to assist you with your particular requirements and challenges
The IEC 61850 standard is creating completely new oportunities for vendor interoperability. Our full product range (including SCADA software and iRTUe expansion units) is thus supporting IEC 61850 client and server communication, such as IEC 61850 GOOSE and MMS protocols. As a result, our solutions are able to map any connected IED data to IEC 61850 logical devices and nodes.
IEC 61850, IEC 60870–5‑104 and DNP3.0 are the most commonly used communication protocols for HV substation automation.
iGrid T&D products can use all of these and other standard protocols, as well as multiple communication media, for full compatibility with third party IEDs. The resulting flexibility and interoperability will facilitate setting-up, retrofitting and changing your substation project, saving you time and money.
Our solutions were developed to fulfill all standards required by electrical companies in the control of medium/low voltage grids (substations) and are in turn particularly resistant to industry-critical software threats and physical loads. They can use mutiple protocols and communication media at once and offer powerful functionalities, such as stand-by redundancy features or microsecond time synchronization via PTP.
Hydroelectric generation plants do not only require remote control complying with electrical standards, but also a strong automation architecture to reliably trigger actions (dams open/close, generator start/stop etc.). Our intelligent software and hardware tools for the automation of small and large-scale hydroelectric generation plants are easy-to-use and strongly reliable throughout the plant’s entire life cycle.
Our smart metering solutions support all popular metering protocols (IEC 60870–5‑102, Modbus, IEC-62056–21 and DLMS) and communication media (Ethernet, wireless and serial). This flexibility has given us the chance to work with the most important meter manufacturers on specialized and large-scale projects worldwide; intelligently collecting, processing and transferring metering data to the electrical market.
The biggest challenge behind retrofitting electrical facilities is often the combination of ancient and brand new devices in one system. To ensure full interoperability with third party devices and prepare for future network changes, we developed particularly powerful and adaptable protocol converters and software solutions, providing state-of-the-art funcitonalities that will make your solution reliable, simple and flexible.
