We supply the GE iBox serial controller which has been developed to address the requirement for a small form factor RTU/ Gateway. This product targets the requirement to modernise proprietary protection equipment. The small form factor makes it possible for installation into existing cabinets. A protocol library supporting proprietary legacy protocols makes this product suitable as a protocol gateway.
The low power requirements allows for deployment in pole mounted installations. The support for legacy protocols like Cooper 2179 further compliments the application of pole mounted installations.
The on-board digital inputs and outputs allow for legacy hard wired support. The GE iBox serial controller’s capability can further be enhanced to support Ethernet LAN functionality.
Examples of the product’s applications:
- Pole top/mount RTU
- Protocol converter
- Serial gateway
- Small form factor RTU
