RTU560 product line

Superior scalability for grid automation and control

Substation automation product for transmission and sub-transmission. RTU560 represents high-end network interfacing - offering maximum flexibility with the highest number of supported protocols for sub and host communications. Designed to handle the highly complex systems in grid automation and control interfacing. RTU560 connects to all kinds of IEDs, parallel I/Os, serial connected and communication via IEC 68150. All this real time data can then be transmitted to your central SCADA systems for critical actions - protecting your primary equipment from overloading of the grid. Optimize your investments with our long life cycle policy and benefit from our agile migration concepts.
