Modbus TCP/IP to IEC 61850 Gateway

Nov. 1, 2011
The Modbus TCP/IP to IEC 61850 gateway provides a distributed solution for interfacing smart-grid-compliant IEC 61850 Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) at the process and bay levels with Schneider Electric PLCs and SCADA systems at the substation level.
The gateway supports IEC 61850 applications including substation automation, load shedding, and advanced SCADA data collection, and enables a SCADA control system on a Modbus TCP/IP network to collect, monitor, trend and control granular real-time data from up to 45 IEC 61850 IEDs at the process level (such as relays and switch gears), the bay levels (such as protection equipment), and at the substation automation level (such as PLC/PACs and SCADA control system). The configuration utility provided with the gateway uses IED configuration files (CIDs) to import complex IEC 61850 data structures, then maps IEC 61850 IED tags to Modbus TCP/IP registers. Mapped IED tags structures can be exported directly to Unity Pro for Quantum, Premium and M340 projects. ProSoft Technologywww.prosoft-technology.com661.716.5100
