The IXXAT SG-gateway family targets Demand Response (networking of industrial electric loads) and Virtual Power Plants (networking of energy resources like biogas plants or combined heat and power units) applications.
The IXXAT SG-gateways support the communication protocols used in the energy sector, e.g. IEC60870-5-104 and IEC61850; as well as protocols supported by the electric equipment in the field, e.g. Modbus or M-Bus. The SG gateways can also communicate with industrial fieldbus or industrial Ethernet networks such as Profibus, Profinet, EtherNet/IP or any other industrial network.
