SYNC 3000 series of products, a range of high - performance data concentrators and communication devices, serve as the ideal substation communication hub with advanced features like redundancy, robustness, and security features compliant with IEC and NERC - CIP standards


SYNC 3000 is a high-performance data concentrator and communication device ideal for use as a substation communication hub with advanced features including redundancy, and security features compliant with IEC and NERC-CIP standards. SYNC 3000 supports a wide range of utility communication protocols including ICCP TASE.2 (IEC 60870-6), IEC 61850 GOOSE, DNP3.0 and can support up to 8 x RS232/485 and 3 x Ethernet ports. SYNC 3000 also supports IEC 61131-3 advanced logic programming. SYNC 3000 data concentrators are proven solutions meant for heavy-duty substation applications and have been used in various applications in power generation, transmission, and distribution segments across the world. This rack mount product is ideal for multi-application integration requirements required as part of SMART GRID standards. It has enhanced communication security features as well as IEC 61850-3 level robustness. SYNC 3000 can be used for niche applications including disturbance records collection, ICCP based control centre communication and many more.

SYNC 3000 with up to 3 Ethernet and 8 serial ports is perfect for large-scale substation data concentration and gateway applications and supports more than 10000 data points (number of data points vary based on selected communication protocols, number of connected devices, etc.). The device is rugged, IEC 61850-3 certified, and thus suitable for substation environments. SYNC 3000 can be ordered in two variants with Copper or Fiber Ethernet ports to suit varied applications.
