Introduction

The Regesta-PRO ER MR router family brings today's most advanced corporate IP network protocols to the world of smart grids. These routers have been specially designed to provide a range of connectivity solutions, through multiple access technologies, in remote and unattended locations where the characteristics of the site demand multiple power ranges and a high level of industrial-grade ruggedness. It takes full advantage of Teldat's advanced internetworking software (CIT) to provide the latest in communications security with encryption, authentication management and access control as protection against intrusion. Combined with Teldat or third-party SNMP management tools, it is ideal for large-scale deployments (where the auto-provisioning feature enables deployments without the intervention of qualified IT personnel).

Description

REGESTA-PRO ER are industrial-grade routers that provide secure and reliable IP broadband connectivity to SCADA telecontrol and telemetry network in smart grid deployments.

THe built-in Ethernet switch can provide services to large number of intelligent electronic devices at remote locations, including VLAN support and other advanced switching features.

The router guarantees optimal execution and maximum security of communications between multiple IP services. In addition, the simultaneous use of 2G/3G/LTE interfaces and ADSL and Ethernet links provides maximum communications reliability, which is ensured thanks to the full support of the management, supervision and backup functionalities.

The Regesta PRO ER router incorporates the latest communications security technology with a comprehensive collection of VPN protocols and firewall techniques.

Use of multiple access networks guaranteeing continuous communication of critical services established with automatic backup methods based on link quality for each network.

Key Features

Up to 6 10/100 FE ports with VLAN, 802.1X, duplex

Automatically detectable 10/100 Mbps speed. It allows for configurations of 2, 4 or 6 active ports. 2 or 4 port models can be increased to the maximum 6 ports at a later date with a software license.

Multi-range power supply (100-240 VAC and 40-75 VDC)

40V-75 VDC and 110V-220 VAC power supply, both ranges supported in a single model for easy deployment and maintenance.

 

2G/3G/4G (dual-SIM and/or dual-module backup)

Up to two embedded 2G/3G/4G interfaces with a dual SIM card tray for automatic backups. Advanced Teldat system for proactive monitoring and automatic recovery from WWAN incidents.

 

Certified for use in electrical environments

The routers are certified for use in electrical environments with EMC, isolation, immunity, electrical, climatic and mechanical certificates.

 

Extended temperature range (-10 to 60ºC)

The Regesta-PRO ER housing is designed for optimal heat dissipation, can be mounted on a DIN rail or wall, and guarantees operation between -10 and 60º C with up to 95% humidity.

 

Security: 802.1X, ACLs, firewall and DMVPNs (IPSec)

The Regesta-PRO ER includes state-of-art security, including ACLs, firewall, 802.1X, IPSec with hardware encryption, DMVPNs, etc., thus allowing for safe and scalable deployments in easy-to-manage smart grid networks. 

 

Serial ports with SCADA protocol support

It is able to incorporate serial interfaces (up to a total of 3 serial ports) with SCADA protocols, thus providing the versatility to connect to industrial meters, RTUs and other control devices. 

 

Advanced services (routing, management, QoS)

The Regesta-PRO ER includes a software stack with advanced functions requires by advanced IP networks, such as QoS, policy routing, DMVPNs, VLANs and VRF, providing maximum versatility for shared services. 

 

IEC-101 to IEC-104 serial-IP and gateway encapsulation

Data from the serial port can be transparently encapsulated with IP. The “IEC-101 to IEC-104 gateway” function also allows IEC-101 TRUs to be maintained and central management software to migrate to IEC-104.

 

Out-of-band management console port

The console port facilitates troubleshooting and installation at remote points.
