SYNC 2000 Secure Substation Gateway

With the deployment of more sophisticated automation system and equipment, utilities’ priorities on the electrical grid system have been shifting to a focus on cybersecurity. State of the art automation standards rely on communication links at all levels in the system to exchange data.

The SYNC 2000 secure substation gateway is ideal for sub-transmission and medium -voltage substation automation and gateway applications. It incorporates a protocol gateway with support for over 40 industry standard and proprietary protocols, plus a multi-faceted security sentry that includes a firewall, role-based access control, security log and encrypted communications.
