VCL-3000, IEC-61850-3 compliant Data Concentrator Unit (DCU)

Description

The VCL-3000 is a compact, versatile IEC-61850-3 compliant Data Concentrator Unit (DCU) which may be used to build Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) and Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) architectures to collect information and data from multiple meters and forward the data to the power utility.

The VCL-3000 can securely aggregate data from a manageable number of meters and relay the information to the centralized utility servers. The VCL-3000 can be tailored to meet a very wide variety of concentrator requirements since it provides several forward (metering side) and backward (network side) communication interfaces.
