IXXAT SG gateways, supporting IEC60870-5-104 and IEC61850 Print

We are happy to announce that the Ninth Protection, Automation and Control (PAC) World Conference will take place from 25 June to 28 June 2018 at Grand Hotel Sofia, Sofia, Bulgaria.

The PAC World conference will include exhibition space that will give an opportunity to manufacturers to demonstrate the latest in their protection, automation and control technology and their applications in relation to the smarter grid of the future.

The company HMS  Networks will also attend the exhibition, where it will present its new IIoT SG Gateways , produced under the IXXAT brand.

The new IIoT IXXAT SG gateways from HMS allow industrial equipment to communicate with smart grids.

IXXAT SG-gateways...

  • enable easy remote control and management of electrical systems
  • support IEC 61850 client/server, GOOSE, proxy gateway, IEC 60870-5-104 client/server and VHPready
  • provide Modbus-TCP client/server and Modbus-RTU master/slave interfaces
  • enable SNMP, SNTP, and cloud connectivity
  • provide I/O, M-Bus, PROFIBUS, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP interfaces
  • are safe – firewall, OpenVPN & password protection
  • support IEC 60870-5-104 redundancy acc. edition 2 (Norwegian Convention).


Select the version

All the IXXAT SG-gateways support the communication protocols used in modern smart grid networks, e.g. IEC60870-5-104 and IEC61850. In addition they also include Modbus TCP Client/Server and Modbus RTU Master/Slave functionality.

They can also communicate with industrial fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks such as Profibus, Profinet or any other industrial network thanks to Anybus technology. Select your version below:


 IXXAT SG-gateway с
EtherNet-IP Interface
 IXXAT SG-gateway
с IO Interface 
 IXXAT SG-gateway
с  M-Bus Master 
  IXXAT SG-gateway с
PROFIBUS Interface
  IXXAT SG-gateway with
PROFINET Interface







What you can do with an Anybus SG-gateway?

1. Integrate industrial equipment into the Power Grid

In this scenario, the SG-gateway connects the Control Room/SCADA system with industrial equipment and machinery in the field.

Equipment such as Generators, filters, protection equipment to utilities that demand IEC protocols. Metering equipment that uses M-Bus and other industrial equipment that uses Modbus or other fieldbus or industrial Ethernet protocols can all be integrated.







 2. Virtual Power Plant / Demand Response applications

A Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a cluster of distributed generation installations that are collectively managed by a central control entity. Every single generator that belongs to the VPP needs a gateway to communicate with the remote control software managing the whole network. The SG-gateway enables this requirement and supports the industry standard VHPready for virtual power plants.  

Demand Response (DR) is an automated control mechanism in power grids, by which the demand side adapts itself to the volatile generation capacity of renewable energies. An SG-gateway can connect the factory with the DR aggregators network operating center on each industrial site.







3. Connecting IED's to PLC systems

Intelligent Electrical Devices (IED) with IEC60870-5-104 or IEC61850 can easily be connected to industrial PLC systems such as; Siemens, Rockwell, Schneider Electric, Mitsubishi, ABB etc, with their proprietary Fieldbus/Industrial Ethernet networks.
