IEEE 2030.5 DER Hardware & Software Gateway

DER Gateway series are SunSpec certified IEEE 2030.5 Gateways. The DER gateway is used to interconnect Distributed Energy Resource (DER) with
utility headend system, utility cloud or with DER Aggregators over IEEE 2030.5, DNP3 or IEC 104. Gateways can communicate with the DER devices
directly or to smart inverter control unit (SMCU) or Generation Facility management system with integrated SMCU using any of the communication
interfaces defined in IEEE 1547-2018 (SunSpec Modbus, DNP3 and Smart Energy profile 2/ IEEE 2030.5). Common Smart Inverter Profile (CSIP) certified
IEEE 2030.5 aggregator client support in the gateway help utility to monitor and control any DER locations regardless of the communication capability of
the field devices there by reduces overall interconnection costs.
