Via the Industry’s First IEC 61850 MMS Device Server
Real-time monitoring is challenging but crucial for mission-critical applications, such as public utilities and oil and gas, and especially for those using legacy equipment at their field sites.
Moxa's NPort S9000 device servers provide the answer to this challenge with integrated IEC 61850 MMS and serial-to-Ethernet communication to facilitate vertical integration between field legacy equipment and SCADA systems.
The NPort S9000 Series is the world's first serial device server that can migrate serial Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) to an IEC 61850-based infrastructure for legacy substation retrofits.
First, the NPort S9000 device servers connect Modbus and DNP3-based IEDs to an Ethernet network with up to 16 serial ports. At the same time, the NPort S9000 uses IEC 61850 MMS protocol to monitor the serial IEDs’ status and report to both the field controllers and power SCADA systems.
Due to the extensive protocol interoperability range of the NPort S9000, the IEC 61850-based SCADA system can supervise the substation’s entire network, consisting of IEC 61850 compliant devices and legacy IEDs, for real-time monitoring and easy maintenance.
