Elecsys Corporation Completes DNP3 Certification For The “Director” Industrial Communication Device.
OLATHE, Kan., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Elecsys Corporation (NASDAQ: ESYS), a provider of innovative machine to machine (M2M) communication technology solutions, data acquisition systems, and custom electronic equipment for critical industrial applications worldwide, today announced the completion of DNP3 Self-Test Certification for the “Director Data Communication Gateway” device.
Elecsys has certified the Director industrial data communication systems for DNP3 compliance. DNP3 is an essential data communication protocol for industrial data network applications in the power generation, transmission, and smart-grid sectors of the electrical power industry. The Director functions as an RTU, a protocol converter, data communication gateway, and bandwidth management tool in industrial M2M networks. It is widely used for M2M communications in the oil and gas pipeline industry. The addition of the DNP3 protocol extends the application capability into every segment of the electrical power grid system.
The DNP3 protocol facilitates data communication between data networks, allowing automation of load balancing and transmission efficiency across wide areas of the power grid. Jeff Stevens, Sales Manager for the Director products, commented, “The ability of the Director to interface with a variety of data acquisition devices, and relay the data using the DNP3 protocol greatly simplifies the task of integrating the producers and consumers of electric power in a smart-grid environment.” Stevens continued, “Most power generation, transmission utilities, and independent system operators (ISOs) require devices connected to their data networks to be DNP3 certified.” More information on the Director products can be obtained by contacting Elecsys Corporation, email@example.com, and is also available in the industrial communication products section of the Elecsys website: www.elecsyscorp.com/scada/.
