SYNC 4000 – Control Center Front End

4000 SYNC 4000 products series are Control Centre level Front end servers used for variety of high performance and heavy duty data collection applications including Wide Area Monitoring, SCADA/DMS Data Aggregation, M2M Data Concentration, etc. Wide area monitoring front end having Synchrophasor data concentrator (PDC) can stream data from any IEEE C37.118 compliant phasor measurement unit to multiple control central applications. Data Aggregation variant have high-end Control Center gateway with protocol drivers and M2M Services, IEC61131 based advanced PLC engine and other FEP functionalities built in one device. This product can be used to interconnect automation system (SCADA/ EMS/ DMS) LAN to WAN networks like MPLS/Cellular/Public Lease line without compromising on the security of the network.

Synchrophasor measurement has been gaining acceptance in power system operations and is being widely adopted in many power systems. A wide variety of devices now support synchrophasors, from stand-alone Phasor Measurement Units (PMUs), to protection relays, meters, fault recorders and other substation devices.

With the standardization of synchrophasor communications by IEEE C37.118, utilities can now select best-of-breed equipment from various vendors, and integrate them into their applications. However, as the number of installed synchrophasor capable devices increase, utilities and integrators begin to face the problem of scalability in integrating large numbers of these devices.
