DNP3Link is a satellite and GSM modem
controller incorporating the DNP3.0 protocol which intelligently manages the communication
link between Master stations and RTU's (Remote Terminal Units)
allowing remote connectivity on existing DNP3 networks. With the
satellite modem option, DNPLink allows remote connectivity to locations where
no infrastructure exists or is too expensive to implement.
DNP3Link offers advanced diagnostic
functions including SMS alarm notifications for several selectable
parameters and thresholds (or any customised parameter). The
diagnostic port (RS232) doubles up as a configuration port
allowing users to configure every aspect of the device via a
terminal application (OS independent) running on a PC or Mac.
Currently used by Eskom, South Africa's energy supplier and the
World's third largest energy supplier, DNP3Link facilitates the
control and monitoring of substations in remote locations of the
country. DNP3Link can be configured with RP570 or other
SCADA and proprietary protocols to provide similar connectivity to
any location of the surface of the Earth.
DNP3Link is also compatible with GSM/GPRS
modems where connectivity inside the GSM (cell phone) network is
DNP3Link supports other packet-based
satellite technologies such as BGAN, allowing TCP/IP (internet
based) connectivity to land and sea based equipment.
