DAQ Announces Discontinuation of IoG Product

Due to shifting technology considerations and the increasing challenge of sourcing required board components, DAQ will be discontinuing the IoG communications gateway product.

Manufactured since 2012, the original IoG served as the automation gateway processor within the Callisto network, managing data received from IEDs as well as from other DAQ nodes. Recently, DAQ released two communications modules, the IoE3 and the IoG3, both designed to exceed IoG functionality while meeting emerging Smart Grid requirements. Although not direct replacements for the IoG module, these new units offer secure integration with DERs, a cost-effective framework for IT/OT convergence, and a new layer of built-in security for your SCADA system.

Orders for the IoG product will be taken until April 22, 2019, with a final production run scheduled for the May-June timeframe. Due to limited stock, pricing for the IoG will be determined after estimated demand has been received. DAQ will continue to provide technical support for IoG modules, including repair, but replacement units will no longer be available. To discuss the features and benefits of the IoE3/IoG3, please contact DAQ directly.
