The SGH-S communications gateway handles legal tasks such as tariffing, processing and provision of billing data in strict compliance with data protection provisions As a multi-function device, the SGH-S connects consumer and generator devices at the endpoints of the supply grid to the applications and services of market parties. In this way the SGH-S plays a significant role in the comprehensive networking of grid endpoints in distributed energy supply.
This highly secure product is characterized by the following features:
Highly secure communications gateway for smart metering systems and grid management
Together with the system-ready SGM-D4 basic meter, the SGH-S secure communications gateway forms the smart metering system iMSys. In the future, customers with load management, heating control and renewable energy supply can use a control unit as an additional component that must be connected to the control center via the gateway provided by the CLS interface.
As components of the Secure IP product line, the SGH-S gateway and associated GCU-S control unit can be integrated into the basic meter. Together they form the basis for customer management, efficient energy utilization and automation in modern distribution grids (smart grids).
Additional application areas include building automation and resource management in commercial and industrial enterprises, where the SGH-S can be used as a secure communications node.
The functionality of the device can be flexibly configured by highly secure firmware upgrades and partitioning of the firmware into a fixed portion and a runtime-modifiable portion.
The following functions are available as standard:
