Power Generation and Management

Robust and proven components for your distributed energy management solutions.

Solutions for Power Generation and Energy Management

Whether wind turbines, photovoltaics or hydropower, fieldbus and Ethernet based communication is used for the control of these systems which are distributed over large distances. The required repeaters, bridges and gateways as well as the interface boards used for connection to the control center need to fulfill demanding requirements in terms of overvoltage protection and reliability.

In addition, modern Smart Grid communication requires specific protocol support, e.g. IEC61850 and IEC60870-5-104, which is provided by the new Ixxat SG-gateway family from HMS. Our products are used successfully in these applications and have been proven robust and reliable for many years.

Besides our standard products, we also offer OEM solutions or develop completely customized hardware and software on behalf of our customers. An overview of our services can be found under  Tech Services

Networking of distributed systems

Solar energy or wind power plants are often divided into smaller system groups. For the interconnection of these systems and the connection to the central control unit, Ixxat Bridges and Gateways are used. Ixxat components enable e.g. the wireless coupling of systems groups or to connect systems over large distances by using Ethernet.
