The VCL-3030, IEC 60870-5, -101 to -104 Protocol Converter is a ruggedized and robust, sub-station-hardened protocol converter which shall convert Serial -101 data to Ethernet -104 data.

The VCL-3030, meets and complies with the IEC-61850-3, EMI, EMC, Surge and Temperature specifications making it suitable for sub-station installations to provide uninterrupted service even in the most demanding and harsh environments.

VCL-3030, -101 to -104 Protocol Converter

VCL-3030, -101 to -104 Protocol Converter Application:

The most common application for the VCL-3030, -101 to -104 Protocol Converter is for augmenting legacy IEC 60870-5-101 RTUs that provide serial -101 data in sub-stations and SCADA data networks. By simply installing a VCL-3030, -101 to -104 Protocol Converter the existing IEC 60870-5-101 RTUs can be upgraded to Ethernet based IEC 60870-5-104 RTUs without incurring a large capex and without the tiresome task of having to rewire the RTUs that require upgradation.
