SYNC 4000 – Control Center Front End

40001SYNC 4000 M2M gateway is a high performance SCADA/DMS and control center front end processor / head end system for advanced distribution automation, substation automation, wide area monitoring and inter-control center communication applications. With support for a large library of utility protocols including ICCP, DNP3 and IEC 101/104 and a scalable architecture that enable private cloud deployments and redundant and virtual instances, SYNC 4000 meets the requirement of connecting thousands of field devices to the control center to new and current SCADA/DMS systems and other enterprise software systems.

SYNC 4000 together with SPT-ARM and SYNC 2000 field gateways supports data collection from legacy devices as well as current ones. With support for IEC 61131 logic engine and advanced diagnostics and device management features and together with SYNC 2101 and SYNC 3000 field controllers, SYNC 4000 enables building advanced distribution applications for your grid. SYNC 4000 with IEEE C37.118 support is a high performance Control Center Phasor Data Concentrator (PDC). Integrated with SYNC 3000 Substation PDC they provide a complete solution for WAMS data acquisition.
