The reliable high performance solution for communication with and within substations-maintenance-free and proven worldwide.
The COM581 protocol converter is an extremely flexible and reliable solution for establishing communication links between bay, substation and network control center levels.
Availability, safety and freedom from maintenance
The COM581 meets the highest demands with regard to availability and safety. Because the gateway requires no maintenance and has no moving parts, it is particularly well suited for use in unmanned stations and wherever high reliability at low operational cost is important over the whole life cycle.
Efficiency and expandability
The modular design allows flexible configuration, and thereby customized communications solutions. Thanks to the efficiency of the industrial hardware used, very extensive systems can be created, as well as systems with large signal volumes and high transmission rates. Standardized protocols, such as
IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-104 / IEC 61850, for the linking of systems from other suppliers ensure the openness of the system.
Proven technology successfully in use worldwide
Since its introduction in 1999, the COM581 has successfully proved itself with our customers through-out the world. The basis of the COM581 is the well-proven and well-tested technology of the numerical REB500/sys busbar and station protection from ABB.
