Protocol Converters

Protocol Converters:

  • SPT-ARM: ASE provides a total solution approach to the area of protocol test equipment with its’ family of PC based protocol test products. The ASE2000 RTU Test Set is a full-featured protocol test unit that provides the user with a powerful and flexible tool for testing and maintaining SCADA RTU and SCADA IED equipment and diagnosing communication problems.
  • SYNC 200 – IED Upgrade Kit: With the advent of superior protocols like IEC 61850, there is an increasing need for Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) to be compliant with these new protocols while still maintaining interoperability with legacy ones. SYNC 200 series of embedded chip products act as upgrade cards for incorporating latest smart grid substation and metering protocols in existing IED equipment design. SYNC 200 module series offer the IED manufacturers the ability to upgrade to support almost any protocol like IEC 61850, DNP3.0, IEC 608570-5-101 / 103 / 104 and DLMS/COSEM with minimal change in product design, enabling faster go-to-market, while saving on R&D and product development costs. Additionally, the incremental R&D efforts in keeping up with the latest protocol developments is borne by experienced professionals from ASE-Systems rather than the device manufacturers, allowing them to focus on their core strengths.
  • SPT-PC: Applied Systems Engineering, Inc.’s SPT-PC is a PC based Communication Gateway designed for use in SCADA environments to manage the flow of data and control operations between RTUs, IEDs, Master stations, HMI systems, and user-written application processes.
  • SPT4-NET: SPT4-NET is a Protocol Translator and Data Concentrator product with one network channel, four serial channels, and a large software library of RTU/IED communication protocols. It provides cost-effective support for a wide array of protocol and data transport applications common in the SCADA industry. These include operating as a data concentrator, translating one protocol to another, adding dual-port capability to an otherwise single-ported device, providing network access to serial-only equipment, and transporting legacy bit-protocols over a frame relay, or similar network.
