SIPLUS RIC - Remote Interface Control

Future-Proof and Efficient – with SIMATIC S7 Standards

SIPLUS RIC (Remote Interface Control) represents a telecontrol system based on the SIMATIC S7 automation system with internationally standardized communication protocols for:

  • Serial transmission IEC 60870-5-101

  • Ethernet (TCP/IP) IEC 60870-5-104

  • Protection device connection IEC 60870-5-103

The SIPLUS RIC range offers maximum functionality and modularity in order to meet all requirements placed on the monitoring and control of spatially distributed systems, even under extreme environmental conditions. It is therefore suitable for sectors such as oil & gas, water & wastewater, energy generation / distribution and transportation / traffic.

SIPLUS RIC differs from other telecontrol products in its high degree of user friendliness. Thanks to Totally Integrated Automation, SIPLUS RIC libraries can also be employed in SIMATIC PCS 7.
