Binary I/O Extension for Power Utility Automation
The first edition of IEC 61850 was intended for substation automation systems (including protection applications). Since then, it has been extended to other application areas and is now the global standard for Power Utility Automation. It is also one of the core standards for the “Smart Grid” and provides the necessary prerequisites for a future-proof design, different architecture and the interoperability of products from multiple vendors.
System integrators and panel builders often find themselves faced with the challenge of needing "a few more" binary I/Os. We offer a compact and versatile solution that adds binary I/Os to a substation automation system and communicates via GOOSE messages according to IEC 61850.
