SYNC 2000 substation gateway is a secure option typically for gateway applications and sub-transmission and medium voltage substation automation.


secure substation gateway solution comprises a protocol gateway that supports more than 40 industry standards, proprietary communication protocols, and a multi-faceted security sentry that combines role-based access control, a firewall, security log, and encrypted communications. It ensures maximum flexibility and can be mounted on a DIN, wall, or rack.

The SYNC2000 family of products are field-proven and support a wide range of communication protocols including IEC 61850 ed 2.0/1.0, IEC 60870-5-101/103/104, DLMS/COSEM, Modbus, as well as legacy and proprietary protocols such as SPA, SEL, Courier and many more.

The product complies with security features according to NERC CIP v5/IEEE 1686. Security capabilities include X.509 PKI certificate support; integrated firewall; TLS/IEC 62351-3 communication; role-based access control (RBAC) using Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) or Attribute Certificate based on IEC 62351-8 standard, security log recording access, events and alarms, and encrypted communications. The product is designed to enable secure boot (TPM) support.

With 4 serial and 2 copper Gigabit Ethernet ports in a ruggedized enclosure the SYNC 2000 is designed for IEC 61850-3 compliance including strict EMI/EMC and surge requirements on all ports and the power supply. It has the flexibility to be mounted on a DIN rail, on a wall or in a rack.

The SYNC2000 is ideal for installing in sub-transmission and distribution substations as a secure data concentrator/gateway for connecting various legacy and new generation downstream devices to a centralized control center.
