Substation Automation Systems

Enable fully remote and continuous monitoring by digitizing your substation automation systems


Digital substations use sensors and real-time data to support remote monitoring and control, enable digital communication and promote efficient, profitable power supply systems.


Investing in a digitized substation automation systems will be a foundational piece for a utility company undergoing their own digital transformation.


The chart below illustrates the evolution of the most current substation systems to a digital substation and how that looks across different operational levels. Digital Substation 2.0, a future concept from our experts at Belden, reveals the replacement of wired connections with merging units effects a huge change between process and bay levels, simplifying electrical and engineering designs.


Illustration compares the architecture necessary for a current or legacy substation to a digital substation 2.0 highlighting the decrease in wired connections.
