Schneider Electric has become aware of a VxWorks TCP Initial Sequence Vulnerability in the SAGE RTU product line which could result in remote man-in-the-middle or denial-of-service exploitation.

Please browse the following link to learn the details of this vulnerability in the Schneider Electric SAGE RTU product line.

Further information about the vulnerability in VxWorks is available here:

Did you recently get a new PC?


Have you recently had to replace the Windows XP machine running Internet Explorer 8 or 9 32 bit version used to configure the SAGE RTUs with one running a newer versions of Windows or Internet Explorer?


If so, updates and instructions on how to configure your existing or new PC and RTUs to work with the new versions of the Microsoft programs are available.


If you still have your old Windows XP machine, hang on to it if you can until you update the firmware or GUI in your RTUs before giving it up. If you do not have the firmware or GUI updates in the RTU before switching to the newer versions of Internet Explorer, the Up/Download function of the firmware may not function reliably and you will have to use FTP to move files on and off the RTU.


Don't wait to do this in the field, as it may require some help from your IT folks to configure your PC.


Hook up your spare RTU in a convenient place, connect to the web and download the following updates and documents to get started:


If you have any of these RTU models running C3413-500-001YZ firmware, SAGE 1310, 1330, 1350, 2300, 3030, 3103, get the following file from the SAGE RTU Downloads page: - contains updates to the GUI web pages for this version of application.


If you have any of these RTU models running C3414-500-001YZ firmware, SAGE 1410, 1430, 1450, 2400, 3030M, LANDAC II, get the following file from the SAGE RTU Downloads page: - contains updates to GUI web pages for this version of application.


If you have any of these RTU models running C3414-500-S02YZ firmware, SAGE 1410, 1430, 1450, 2400, 3030M, LANDAC II, there are no firmware updates, just browser configuration.


You will need the following document: from the SAGE page FAQ section of this web site (put the following string in the search box to find it quickly):


SAGE Firmware & Internet Explorer Config


You will need one of the following documents depending on the version of Internet Explorer you are using from the SAGE page FAQ section of this web site. The version number in the name may change if the documents are revised.







If you follow the directions in these manuals, you will be able to browse and Up/Download the configurations for the RTU as you have in the past using your old Windows XP machine.

The Sage RTUs are not affected by the Heartbleed bug.


Our RTU does not use OpenSSL v 1.01-1.01f.


We also tested our RTU with latest Nessus add-ons to detect this vulnerability and passed.

Many of you may have seen the ICS-CERT notifications regarding DNP issues and how they can result in a "Denial of Service" attack. The Secure Firmware available for download on this site fixes the currently known vulnerabilities with DNP as well as providing the latest secure functionality for the SAGE product line.

The latest version of the data trap analyzer program is available in the download access. Fixes some minor bugs found in the last version.

Off-line Configuration Tool

Posted by duaneg Sep 6, 2013

If you have ever wished there was a tool for viewing a configuration or making modifications to the SAGE units without having to be physically connected to one, your wish has come true! The SAGE Off-Line Configuration Tool is now available. The tool requires only a USB dongle to give you the same capabilities for viewing and changing an RTU's configuration that you have when connected to a SAGE unit. Contact your local Rep or Debbie Gierman at 713-920-6897 for more information.

Here you will find helpful information, manuals, drawings, white papers and the latest Firmware for all the SAGE products. Additionally you can ask questions and dialog with other users about anything. We hope you will find this new interactive forum useful and informative. Dive in!

RTU Training

Posted by duaneg Aug 14, 2013

If you are interesting in getting SAGE RTU training, it's not too late! The next class will be held the week of November 11th. This will be a three day training on the SAGE units held in Houston and is open to all users. The cost is $1625 per person. If you are interested and would like more details, contact Giselle Doss at 713-920-6886.

Boolean Status App

Posted by duaneg Aug 14, 2013

Want to “OR” alarm points to create a higher level alarm? Boolean Status is an application available in all SAGE RTUs that allows the user to create “And, Or, Nor, Nand, and Xor” gates without using the (IEC 61131 RLL) Ladder Logic Engine. This easy to use application makes it easy to build logic gates.

Templates for IED's

Posted by duaneg Aug 14, 2013

IED configurations can be built individually and copied from one to another but even better is to build a template, especially for configurations that are used frequently. Not only does it make it quicker and easier to add another of the “Same IED”, templates can be extracted from the RTU independently of the entire configuration and downloaded into other RTUs.

To create a template, build an IED configuration manually as normal. When finished, select the “Exp” button at the end of the row and type in a name for this new Template. Note: the name cannot have spaces and must end with”.xml” . Once created, a template can be reused by selecting the “Imp” button. All templates available will be in the “drop down” list and can be selected for use. Point quantity, names, scaling, etc. are all copied as part of the template.

Templates can be extracted from the RTU by going to the “Upload/Download” Tab and selecting “Templates” from the drop down list just like the Configuration, Application, or GUI. Once extracted, they can be stored and shared with other Users who configure RTUs.

When mapping data to a DNP Master you may find that you missed a point or want to add a point at a location but have already mapped many points beyond that spot.

Likewise, you may have created a large point map and need to delete a point.

Simply right click on the “Point” column where you want to add or delete a point and you will get the option to “Insert above”, “Insert below” or "delete" the point.
