Netcontrol has a strong track record of delivering modern, cyber‑secure communication solutions that support legacy serial devices.
A secure, reliable and cost‑effective data communication network is the backbone of any modern remote control and telemetry system. The trend has long been from dedicated, fixed‑banwidth serial connections to flexible, multipurpose IP networks. To aid utilities in such modernization, Netcontrol has developed the secure All-IP concept. The products in Netcontrol’s Gateway family, however, are also designed to interface existing serial devices at substations, so that these can be used until the end of their economical life cycles but still be part of a modern automation system. In addition, Netcontrol offers its own private data radios for transmitting serially coded telemetry and remote control data over the air, along with other devices for wireless communication, which is sometimes the most efficient solution for remote sites.
