Protocol ConverterEasily transfer information from different protocols and communication media
Advantages of our solution
- iGrid gateways and data concentrators allow the connection of multiple devices using different protocols and communication media
- iGW family has multiple communication media options ranging from serial to GPRS ports, or fiber optic Ethernet ports with SFP modules or ST/SC connectors
- From meter data concentration to protocol conversion, iGW can act in any kind of control or automation system, especially in generation plants or high voltage substations
On many projects related to grid automation, substation automation, or smart metering, the protocol conversion or data concentration is a key element which allows the use of multivendor solutions or retrofitting existing ones with newer elements.
During the last two decades multiple protocols have appeared in the market: from legacy proprietary to standard protocols (IEC60870-5-103, Modbus, Profibus, DNP3.0, IEC60870-5-102, DLMS/Cosem or IEC61850). All of them should be managed simultaneously, in real time, to achieve the energy market technical requirements.
iGW family of devices can work with any of the standard protocols, using up to 4 serial ports and up to 5 Ethernet vias, to communicate simultaneously with dozens of slave devices and multiple control centers or master stations.
Protocol Converter Products
iGW devices are powerful protocol converters that facilitate the communication between devices of different manufacturers by supporting a wide range of communication protocols and with multiple communication media options (serial ports, GPRS, Ethernet copper and fiber ports, etc.)

More solutions for smart grids, substations and energy plants
iGrid T&D’s SCADA, RTUs, substation gateways, protocol converters and bay controllers support both IEC61850 client and server communication capabilities. When acting as IEC61850 servers, our solutions are able to map any existing IED to IEC61850 logical devices
IEC61850, IEC60870-5-104 and DNP3.0 (as well as other communication protocols) are used worldwide for substations’ automation. iGrid T&D solutions use all of them to have a completely interoperability with any other vendor
Our solutions fulfill the standards required by electrical companies for the control of Medium Voltage grids (MV/LV substations). Our devices are capable to adapt to different communication media (e.g. serial, Ethernet, GPRS/3G, PSTN) and able to handle multiple communication protocols (e.g. IEC60970-5-104, DNP3.0)
Our smart metering solutions support the most popular metering protocols (IEC60870-5-102, Modbus and DLMS) and multiple communication media. iGrid T&D is working with the most important meter manufacturers worldwide to collect and deliver metering information to the electrical market
Hydroelectric generation plants require remote control following the electrical systems standards, but a higher degree of automation is requested, as special procedures are requested for actions like dams open/close, generator start/stop, etc. iGrid solutions will give you easy tools to automate small and big hydroelectric generation plants
