The power utility industry plays an indispensable role in the global economy, with fossil fuels considered among the world's most important resources. The power utility industry has many unique protocols in its infrastructure, such as DNP 3.0 (Serial & Ethernet), Modbus, LON, Profibus and Profinet. Many of these protocols are utilized in the smart grid and need to comply with the standard IEC 61850.
The IEC 61850 is widely used in power plant and substation applications such as security and process control, sensor and switch technologies, metering, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), automated dispatch and control, asset management, condition monitoring and diagnosis.
The Amplicon process and control specialists can help you in managing the smart grid more intelligently and efficiently. Our range includes managed Ethernet, unmanaged Ethernet switches, SCADA software, Remote I/O and media converters that support the IEC 61850 standard.
