LineRunner SCADA NG transmission system

KEYMILE has enhanced its modular LineRunner SCADA NG transmission system for mission-critical systems. New features include line interfaces for transmitting via a four-wire SHDSL and optical fibre with SFPs. Maximum data rates of up to 25Mbps are achievable.

KEYMILE’s LineRunner SCADA NG is a modular transmission system for reliable and secure data transmission in supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and telecontrol networks.

Mission-critical networks belonging to energy suppliers and railway companies are just some of the areas it can be used in. Network operators can fit it with different line interfaces, allowing flexibility with regards to the transmission medium.

A new basic module now offers an SHSL interface for four-wire transmission to ITU-T 991.2 standard. Two line interfaces can be combined to form a logical transmission path, so a greater transmission range can be obtained while maintaining an equally high transfer rate and economising on a repeater. There are various different interfaces for transmission via optical fibre, which differ in terms of bandwidth and transmission range. A new line interface now enables the use of SFPs. Furthermore, energy suppliers and railways companies can also transmit data with an E1 interface via a SDH/PDH network.

LineRunner SCADA NG is applied if accurate data transmission is required in tough ambient conditions and where space is limited. The transmission system therefore needs to be able to work outdoors and operate extremely reliably and safely in tough climates. Network operators can use it in a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C. Due to its low voltage and power consumption, LineRunner SCADA NG is also ideal for solar plants. In addition to the user interface, each LineRunner SCADA NG has two line interfaces and can function as a repeater and media converter.

Similarly to public telecommunications networks, Ethernet/IP is also becoming more important in telecontrol and SCADA networks and due to the rising frequency of these protocols, Ethernet/IP data also increasingly has to be transmitted in these networks in addition to serial data. The transmission system should therefore support both options in order to ensure seamless transmission. LineRunner SCADA NG and the associated equipment turn the system into a compact, flexible and reliable transmission solution. It is also easy and reliable to configure and manage through the ASMOS management system, which runs on Windows 7.

The new generation of LineRunner SCADA NG is available now. For more information please contact KEYMILE.
