The new protocol converters in the Resygate product line from Phoenix Contact now allow distributed stations to be monitored more easily and at a lower cost.
Resygate devices convert many standard communication protocols, such as from water management or energy supply, into modern, standardised tele-control protocols. This reduces interface costs in the control system. The formation of sub-networks allows more effective use of IP address ranges. The following protocols are converted into TCP/IP-based communication according to IEC 60870-5-101 bal or IEC 60870-5-104:
- IEC 60870-5-101 bal
- IEC 60870-5-101 unbal
- IEC 60870-5-104
Users can select the optimum choice from two device classes for their data volume. Two converters are available: the Resygate 1000 for up to 500 process variables and Resygate 3000 for up to 4000 process variables. Resygate is also equipped with pre-installed software that allows all distributed stations to be configured from a single location. Guided parameterisation, during which plausibility is immediately checked, makes configuration quick and easy. This reduces the cost of commissioning and operation.
