Pass secure, real-time data and commands between your generation site and the regional power authority. Designed for generators of both traditional and renewable power, RT|RIG software fully conforms to your location’s RIG and Data Processing Gateway (DPG) requirements for data processing, communication, and security. Included is a system that is fully certified for the California Independent System Operator (CAISO).

Data acquisition and concentration

Acquire data from multiple sources, including remote terminal units, generation controllers, and plant control systems. RT|RIG software supports both serial and TCP/IP connections and industry-standard protocols such as Distributed Network Protocol (DNP) and Modbus.

Protocol conversion

Communicate with multiple devices using different protocols.

Automatic generation control

Take advantage of advanced AGC functions, such as bumpless transfer for smooth transitioning between your generation site and power authority.

Remote monitoring

Configure and manage your system remotely, or let DC Systems do it for you. Extensive self-monitoring features enable you to receive alerts via e-mail or pager if a problem occurs.


Pass real-time data and commands between your site and the local power authority or other external systems using the secure DNP network.

Certificate management

Install and easily manage multiple certificates to ensure that data is accessible only to authorized users.


Adapt the software to fit your needs, with a wide array of configuration and expansion options and other capabilities, such as event historians, real-time data analysis, and local data display and alarming.

RT|RIG runs on standard, Windows*-based servers or hardened systems available from many manufacturers. It is an application of the RT Smart Grid Platform which powers the Smart Grid—from field device to substation to control center—and integrates seamlessly with all enterprise systems.
