SYNC 2100 series of Intelligent Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) are ideal for various T&D I/O monitoring, Distribution Automation and Substation Monitoring applications.
The stand-out features of these products include :
Modularity: They are modular and can be customized for exact I/O monitoring requirements through the use of DI / DO / AI cards.
Protocol Support: They support a wide range of protocols including IEC 61850, DNP3.0, IEC 60870-101/104 and Modbus, as well as logic (IEC61131-3) and wireless communication interface options (GPRS/CDMA/3G/RF/Zigbee). This means that this single unit can perform multiple functions reducing the need for additional hardware, thus reducing capital costs.
Low Maintenance Cost: A single device also means minimization of maintenance, replacement, and inventory costs.
Rugged: They are rugged enough for substation use and comply with IEC 61850-3 in this regard.
Latency: They provide improved latency support through time synchronization and good time stamping resolution. Good latency is important in Distribution Automation applications where millisecond differences could be critical in fault isolation, diagnosis and problem resolution.
