Protocon Universal Communications Gateway

Protocon is designed specifically to function as a high speed universal communication gateway interfacing various and dissimilar field devices with different communications protocols and electrical interfaces. The Virtual Database mechanism allows large amounts of field data from a multitude of sources to be handled from multiple host machines with relative simplicity. When used in this manner this product operates as a sophisticated, high performance network controller interfacing Distributed Control Systems, SCADA Systems, HMIs/MMIs, multiple local and remote RTU / PLCs, Flow Computers, Analyzers, Metering Devices, Smart Valves, Tank Gauging Devices, Personal Computers, Push Button Panels, and other field network devices such as DDC valve control systems.
