Quick overview of the use cases we serve

  • Internet/WAN connection of solar parks
  • Remote access to plant components, park monitoring and measurement technology

  • Remote maintenance in the event of a fault
  • VPN connection to direct marketing and grid operators
  • Connection to SCADA systems, remote control technology and cloud platforms

Operational management

The operational management of a solar farm requires careful monitoring, including monitoring, performance management, operational data analysis, fault handling, inspection and maintenance, and access monitoring via CCTV to ensure effective uptime and maintenance.

Direct marketing (DVM)

For successful direct marketing (DVM) of solar power plants, it is necessary to ensure remote controllability and to integrate the plant into a virtual power plant. In this way, control energy can be provided to enable effective electricity marketing.

Grid operation

Feed-in management of solar energy requires remote control and redispatch in order to integrate power generation safely. It is crucial that all systems work together effectively and reliably.

The right router for every situation

Industrial Router - MIRO

MIRO Series

The MIRO is a router that enables stable and flexible networking of small systems through mobile radio (LTE).

Der universell einsetzbare Router ECR-LW300 eignet sich dank umfangreicher Schnittstellen zur Erfassung und Verarbeitung von Anwendungsdaten (Edge Computing). Durch WLAN und Mobilfunk bietet der redundante INSYS icom Router eine hervorragende Grundlage für eine sichere Fernwartung.

SCR/ECR Series

Mobile radio and LAN2LAN router
With serial interface and IOs
container runtime for own software

Industrial Router - MRX

MRX Series

Modular design with plug-in cards. Adaptation to all requirements. Best solution for demanding tasks. Connection via LTE, DSL, LWL connection to network operators, LTE450. Container Runtime for own software.

Special features of the INSYS solution

Simple operation, automated commissioning

A high degree of automation of configuration and commissioning as a prerequisite for scaling, error reduction and competitive costs.

Automated pre-configuration e.g. via REST-API, ssh or scripts.

Simple drag & drop upload of default configuration profiles.

Completion of the configuration by the commissioning engineer on site does not require detailed knowledge, e.g. for entering (SIM, PIN, IP address, DSL access data ).

Container Runtime – Router as Mini-lPC

Programming environment based on Linux Container (LXC)

Whether for data retrieval, error messages, network analysis or software for system control.

Use the router as a mini industrial PC and thus save additional components and standardise your network. More information under Edge Computing

How does a solar park get Internet access? – Frequently asked questions

We offer industrial routers for mobile communications 2G,3G,4G/LTE, LTE450 as well as DSL (ADSL/VDSL) and fibre optics (SFP)

What distinguishes industrial routers from home routers?

Lifetime, availability, IT security
Horne routers are designed for a lifetime of 2-3 years and the electrical components are selected accordingly. Under harsher environmental conditions, e.g. temperature fluctuations in control cabinets or increased EMC/vibration, this service life decreases significantly. lndustrial routers have a service life of 10+ years. The use in industry and infrastructure does not allow frequent changes.

lndustrial applications depend on high availability of communication. The router system is designed for uninterrupted 24/7 operation.

Security -interesting facts about the IT security of industrial routers
Infrastructure and industrial facilities are attractive targets for cyber criminals. The router operating system is specifically designed and hardened for these applications and offers features for secure operation in critical infrastructure.

Is INSYS certified for critical infrastructure?

INSYS has been awarded a Critical Infrastructure Security Certificate for the MRX3-LTE by the German Federal Office for Information Security. Further information on IT security. Regular penetration tests are carried out by an independent body for all products.

Who can help me with IT security issues?

With the increasing share of renewable energies, IT security is inevitably moving from a nice-to-have to a must-have. We offer you materials on the IT security of our products and solutions. Here you will find a checklist and instructions for securing your network. lf you have any further questions, please contact us, we will be happy to support you.

What do I do with a VPN configuration (.ovpn file) from the direct marketer?

You can import an OpenVPN client configuration from the direct marketer in the start-up wizard under point 4 VPN connection. An additional certificate may still have to be uploaded.

Is parallel operation of several VPN tunnels possible?

Both OpenVPN and IPsec tunnels to different remote stations can exist in parallel. The networks are completely isolated from each other and can thus also be used for external participants.

Can I access surveillance cameras remotely?

With a router installed on site and the web proxy f unction of the icom Connectivity Suite, surveillance cameras can be accessed directly in the browser. This does not require a VPN client on the end device.

How and where are industrial routers installed?

Industrial routers are clicked onto a DIN rail in the electrical control cabinet or screwed directly to the housing or a bracket.
In the case of mobile radio routers, the external mobile radio antenna is led out of the control cabinet and mounted on the outside wall of the building.

Which systems are subject to the KRITIS Ordinance (BSI-KritisV)?

KRITIS installations as well as systems for the control and bundling of electrical power such as direct m arketing companies, virtual power plants, operation managers and maintenance companies (control room).

These installations have a CRITIS obligation:
all individual installations or systems with a net installed capacity of 104MW or more, black start installations independent of output and primary control power of 36MW or more.

Installations outside of the CRITIS obligation – is IT security an issue?

Non-critical infrastructure is also subject to IT security obligations. The starting point is the duty of care of the management. Measures to ensure sufficient IT security standards are required.

Which SIM cards are suitable for solar parks?

Most faults in mobile routers can be traced back to SIM cards. For this reason, we offer licensed multiroaming industrial SIM cards at favourable conditions. We have the most experience and test coverage with these SIM cards. All advantages at a glance.
