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.

Integration is quick and simple so projects stay within time lines and on budget.

SubSTATION Explorer is configurable – not programmable – which means you get a full-featured HMI without the additional associated costs of extensive training, development and code maintenance to achieve advanced intuitive HMI displays in a matter of hours, not weeks.

Built in digital alarm annunciator outperforms traditional hardwired alarm solutions.

SubSTATION Explorer includes a digital alarm annunciator facilitating the timely resolution of substation alarms before they become critical and costly. Furthermore implementing a digital annunciator is a fraction of hardwired alternatives.

Built-in security leverages existing corporate policies to reduce maintenance overhead.

SubSTATION Explorer offers multi-level security to ensure substation data remains safe and secure. Existing corporate network IT infrastructure policies can be leveraged to control SubSTATION Explorer access. Security can be applied down to the configuration file level by assigning users specific privileges such as full control, modify, view & execute or just view configurations.

  • Centrally view all local substation data in a standard format and layout
  • Manage substation alarms with a low-cost, built-in digital alarm annunciator
  • Utilize advanced secure authentication and authorization technologies to ensure proper substation operation with complete audit trail.
  • Retain safe and reliable substation operations during network and system outages

Connect Substation Data with Business Intelligence for Utilities

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.


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.
