The PCS-9799S Station Manager is designed for the highest standards of performance, safety and reliability to meet requirements of a complex substation communication system. It serves as a station level gateway, which collects, processes and stores signals of relays, measurement units, control units and other IEDs in substation, and transfers them to higher-level systems such as remote control centre and distributed control system.
The PCS-9799S supports numerous common protocols in electric power and industrial industries, such as IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-101/104, IEC 60870-5-103, Modbus, DNP3, etc. Data can be extracted from various IEDs and transferred to higher-level systems. The transparent transmission and the device independent operating mode avoid any interaction or influence with the substation SCADA system or other control systems. Furthermore, with the processing capability, the PCS-9799S can run as a programmable signal platform for a flexible and versatile signal processing and logic operations.
l Data collection
This device supports numerous protocols to extract data from a variety of automation components and devices, such as relays, controllers, sensors, and meters. Via various interfaces, including RS-232/422/485, binary inputs and Ethernet.
l Data processing
With the help of the PCS-Studio configuration tool, collected data can be programmed and mapped in a graphical visual mode.
The signal synthesis function is supported. Logical and mathematic operation of data such as AND, OR, NOT, XOR, +, -, × and ÷ can be proceeded internally.
l Data transmission
This device converts data to the required protocol and securely transfers it to remote management systems.
l Dual device redundant operating mode
The switching between the active and standby states of dual device is a dynamic process, and the redundant strategy will make comprehensive judgment and switch automatically according to the current working condition of the dual device system, such as the panel handling state, heartbeat message, device start-up time, locking signal, etc.
