October 30, 2018 – Mencom’s Protocol Gateway series can provide a solution for the network update by integrating protocols into the existing layout and connecting them to outdated protocols. The supported protocols are Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP, Profinet RT/IRT, DNP3.0 Ethernet, DNP3.0 Serial, IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-103, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC 61850 devices, and PLCs. 80 different protocol combinations can be selected in the firmware and integrated with 10 different hardware platforms based on the network/application requirements.
The Protocol Gateway series is equipped with hardware platforms and software to manage the translation from protocol to protocol. They are designed to withstand environments with temperatures ranging between -40°C and +85°C degrees with up to 95% humidity. They comply with industrial EMC requirements/IEC 61850 chapter 3. SFP, Ethernet, TB5 or DB9 serial connectors are available for the connector types. The Din-Rail and Rackmount is the standard, and the wall mount is optional for models with the Din-rail mount.
All products can be embedded with Security (VPN over IPSec or OpenVPN function) that protects sensitive data from unauthorized accesses. In addition, they share the same configuration tool. This Java-based configuration tool also helps the system integrator to manage data point mapping, polling frequency and configuration upload. The data flow is monitored through the embedded debugging tool and it makes sure the conversion is performed as the applications require.
