Cube SGC

We're changing the face of the grid, enabling energy flow more safely, smoothly and more efficiently, to make a net zero world possible.

Cube SGC

Overview

The Cube SGC (smart grid controller) is the ultimate solution for integrating legacy control and automation schemes into one communications platform. It enables translation of virtually any grid communication protocol into another including IEC 61850 for integration into a modern digital environment.

Modular. Scalable. Simple to fit. Making complex, data-intensive environments an easy to automate reality is now possible.

Cube SGC

Technical Summary

Two configurable Ethernet ports provide a powerful network connectivity platform. Configuration options are:

  • 2 x Ethernet ports with independent MAC addresses
  • HSR (High Available Seamless Redundancy) Ethernet ring
  • PRP (Parallel Redundant Protocol) Ethernet configuration

For local IED integration, one electrically isolated RS-232 or RS-485 communication port is available.

  • 2 Port serial extension
  • Cellular/LTE

  • 8 digital inputs channels
  • 4 relay output channels
  • Combined 4 digital inputs channels and 2 relay output channels
  • 4 channel analogue DC input interface

The Cube SGC includes a fully integrated Application Data Hub (ADH) software which is a flexible and complete data communication and process automation package. The ADH includes support for all supported communication protocols, field input/output options, standard JSON data format and MQTT exchange.
