The UC 500 server family provides an all-in-one flexible communication gateway, automation platform and HMI solution for utility and industry applications. The multiple hardware options and its modular and scalable software architecture support the full spectrum of applications from integrated cost effective station servers to high performing distributed applications, such as large substations or power plants.
The multi-protocol multi-channel gateway provides seamless connectivity options for either station IED data aggregation, connectivity to multiple local or remote control and management systems, RTU/telecontrol gateways or SCADA front-end processors. The built-in logic engine, fully programmable in IEC 61131-3 languages, allows further application flexibility, either as an application-layer gateway and data processor or as a full automation SoftPLC controller. The optional HMI 500 server supports alarms and events, data historian as well as multi-client web-based user interface, featuring advanced 2D vector graphics, topological coloring, tagging and pinning and trending. The UC 500 therefore also provides users with a full featured SCADA platform for any utility or industrial application. Notwithstanding the complete feature set, the UC 500 products, available either with pre-installed or as easy to install software, are configured or managed through the Efacec Automation Studio integrated engineering environment, hence providing application flexibility without compromising engineering efficiency.
