Benefits of PowerSYSTEM Server

PowerSYSTEM Server's large, advanced library of SCADA protocol drivers and integrated security capabilities allows utilities to have unparalleled real-time visibility of their entire transmission and distribution system

It provides a cost effective solution to upgrade your existing SCADA Front End Communication process, while helping utilities meet their Smart Grid goals and objectives, and today’s security and reliability regulatory requirements

PowerSYSTEM Server can also be used as a non-SCADA FEP to collect and interface previously stranded IED data directly with utility data historians and asset management systems, independent of and without burdening a utility's SCADA system

Multi-function FEP solution that performs data concentration, protocol translation, centralized event file collection and enterprise data integration

PowerSYSTEM Server unifies the centralized real-time SCADA and non-SCADA data collection for your entire grid. It is able to serve this real-time information to a variety of utility business systems including SCADA systems, data historians, asset management systems, etc

High-availability, redundant PowerSYSTEM Server solutions provide the reliability you need for these critical applications

Avoid the limitations of many SCADA vendor-specific FEPs with PowerSYSTEM Server's true multi-vendor communication capabilities

PowerSYSTEM Server enables utilities to get more out of their existing IED investments by helping to deliver all the important data they contain directly to the people that need it, versus having them go to the substation to get the data

Implement more effective condition-based management of aging power system assets using PowerSYSTEM Server to provide greater real-time and historical visibility of all the equipment monitoring information available from IEDS

PowerSYSTEM Server enables utilities to seamlessly migrate and evolve with technological change due to its wide support of legacy protocols and advanced support of today’s most popular and future communication solutions such as DNP3.0 and IEC 61850 

Avoid technological obsolesce issues of traditional integration solutions with PowerSYSTEM Server which leverages, and evolves with, mainstream networking and computing technologies

Scalable software enables solution support ranging from small distribution utilities to extremely large transmission companies.

HMI and operator interface for electrical substations

SubSTATION Explorer is an HMI that revolutionizes the way electrical utility substations are maintained and operated today while transforming these traditional substations into tomorrow’s smart substations. For personnel who manage electrical utility substations, SubSTATION Explorer is a software application that enables you safely, securely and reliably view and control all of your critical substation data.


Securely access substation data from your corporate network

With PowerSYSTEM Center utilities are able to securely and centrally manage their large install base of many different intelligent electronic devices deployed throughout their entire transmission and distribution system. Central server architecture allows for multiple vendor applications to be installed and maintained on one centralized server -- not individual user PCs -- reducing administration costs and time.


Protocol converter, data concentrator, secure access control

Avoid limitations of IED vendor-specific integration devices with SubSTATION Server's true multi-vendor integration capabilities that support rich integration for virtually all major IED vendors. SubSTATION Server is a powerful multi-function substation integration solution that replaces outdated RTU data concentrators, relay communication processors and other legacy integration devices.


Data Concentrator, HMI and Business Intelligence for Substations

SubSTATION Explorer 2 is SUBNET’s new and revolutionary substation HMI solution for unifying the visualization and control of all your critical substation information. Critical information is scattered amongst dozens of different IED faceplates with obscure menu driven displays.
