Communicating with S&C’s Automation Products is easy using IntelliLink Setup Software or IntelliLink Remote Setup Software. These Windows®-based programs share a common interface that provides a consistent look and feel, plus similar screens, layouts, and procedures.
IntelliLink, furnished at no charge with S&C Automation Products, greatly simplifies device setup but offers no remote capability. IntelliLink Remote Setup Software permits configuration of, and download of data from, S&C’s unique IntelliRupter® PulseCloser®Fault Interrupter.

IntelliLink Setup Software is S&C’s Windows-based program for interfacing locally with our controls. You can view real-time data, manage setpoints, gather troubleshooting information, and download historical data for reports — all from screens that are easy to use and understand.
IntelliLink is included with all S&C Automation Products.
IntelliLink Remote expands upon IntelliLink, adding the ability to remotely access control information over the communication link of DNP-equipped S&C Automation Products. IntelliLink requires that the user directly connect a PC to a particular S&C Automation Product. If the user has a number of controls to configure (or reconfigure), this can involve a good deal of travel and time.
With IntelliLink Remote, all setup and data-gathering capabilities of IntelliLink are available remotely on S&C Automation Products operating under DNP 3.0 by connecting a computer to the SCADA communication port on one of the networked devices. The only time a direct connection to a particular device is necessary is to load updated operating system software. IntelliLink Remote is also capable of communicating over Ethernet TCP/IP and UDP/IP, allowing operation through gateways and servers.
IntelliLink Remote also offers password protection features that only allow authorized access to IntelliLink.
IntelliLink Remote can be applied in a variety of ways. One example is shown below.
