HVDC Black Sea, Georgia

IPCOMM delivered ipConv gateways to link the TDC control systems with the IEC 60870-5-104 master stations.
The TDCs are connected to the gateway with the proprietary protocol Simatic TDC.
Our industrial pc IPC191V3 19" 1U is used as hardware platform. The mass storage is a CompactFlash (without rotating parts) with an MTBF = 1,000,000 h. Each IPC191V3 19" 1U is equipped with six Ethernet interfaces.
The gateways operate redundantly in "hot standby" mode. This means only one of the two devices is active at any time. The passive device monitors the active one and if the active one fails, the passive one automatically steps in and resumes communication.

This IPCOMM solution is part of the HVDC system BLACK SEA in Georgia.

Black Sea
