Architecture

SYNC 3000 with up to 6 Ethernet and 12 serial portsis perfect for large scale substation data concentration and gateway applications, and supports more than 50000 data points (number of datapoints 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.

The device has as option for internal SATA SSD support for extended storage. SYNC 3000 can be ordered in five variants with different combination of Ethernet ports to suite varied applications.

  • SYNC3000-M1 : With first two copper Ethernet ports licensed in six ethernet port model
  • SYNC3000-M2 : With first four copper Ethernet ports licensed in six ethernet port model
  • SYNC3000-M3 : With all six copper Ethernet ports licensed
  • SYNC3000-M4 : With four copper Ethernet ports and four serial ports
  • SYNC3000-M12 : With two optical ethernet ports and two copper ethernet ports

Note: All variants except SYNC3000-M4 has twelve serial ports. All variants can be ordered with optional redundant power supply.
