Platforms for process coupling and smart grids

Hardware and software components for secure and resilient distribution networks.

  • Platform PGC-3000 in DIN rail format


    With a minimal size, the PGC-3242 is suitable for applications such as telecontrol gateways or micro grid controllers.

  • Platform PGC-4000 in 19 inch format  


    Devices such as the PGC-4842 are used as gateways between telecontrol technology and control centers.

  • Platform PGC-5000 in 19 inch format 


    Is enables for scaling tasks or TCP/IP gateways (TIG) like the domain of PGC-5102, for example.

  • Plattform PGC-6000 in 19 Zoll (2HE)


    In Cloud Umgebungen und VPN- gesicherten IP Netzwerken ist die PGC-6060 als Kombination von TGC VM und dem Security Proxy die Lösung in virtualisierten Umgebungen.

Modular setup - functional flexibility

GridConnect platforms can be adapted to all network operation requirements thanks to a modular hard- and software design. The following modules are used for the platforms below:

Hardened LINUX as a basis: NENUX is also available in virtualized form, i.e. it is hardware-independent and easy to maintain.

Telecontrol gateway, as a main unit for network expansion with numerous telecontrol interfaces

Telecontrol gateway, as a sub-unit for network expansion with several telecontrol interfaces

Protocol Converter: Intermediary between modern IoT protocols/platforms and the classic IEC 60870-5-104 world

The Security Proxy offers maximum protection against external threads

TCP/IP Gateway in combination with GridConnect Security Proxy

Intelligent Grid Operator as central smart grid component

Internet of Things converter for Industry 4.0 applications and the new requirements of the energy transition 

TCP/IP gateway for connecting telecontrol stations via the widespread TCP/IP protocol


Visualisization and utilities shows aggregated data corresponding to spacial context. A comfortable user interface offers specific views and tools (e.g. dashboard).

Suitable for connection to control systems in the PSIcontrol environment.

Independent of control systems that are geared towards PSIcontrol or other architectures. 



Safely from telecontrol stations to energy control systems

Reliable process coupling in power grids with GridConnect components.


Stable energy management is the result of scalable, highly available and secure telecontrol systems. The only way how telecontrol stations' interfaces and it's telecontrol protocols can securely be connected to control centers.

  • can be installed redundantly
  • expandable in a modular manner
  • comprehensive security according to all recognized standards (BDEW, NERC CIP)
  • fast pre-processing of telecontrol protocols
  • relief of central system components

Telecontrol Protocols

For transmission of process data between substations and the control center, special protocols are applied.

As a converter our products support numerous standardized telecontrol protocols including IEC 60870-5-104 and IEC 60870-5-101. This allows connections of existing substations to modern control systems.

Additional protocols with PDM or PCM-UART encoding can be integrated easily.
