GE Energy has released its Multilin D400 advanced substation gateway with distributed I/O controller for the consolidation and optimization of substation monitoring, control and communications.

The advanced substation gateway provides an Automated Record Retrieval Manager tool that enables users to securely retrieve and store records from devices connected to GE's substation gateway, archive the information locally and automatically distribute to user-selected locations within the enterprise network. It also allows users to maintain and use existing engineering designs, processes and automation infrastructure, eliminating the need for costly building expansions, new control panels, wiring and unnecessary system outages. This offers a cost-effective upgrade alternative to GE's remote terminal units with I/O modules, which are extensively used in substation automation systems globally.
