The IEC 61850 Server Module to IEC 61850 gateway allows IEDs on an IEC 61850 network to communicate with PACs on an EtherNet/IP network.
The gateway’s two independent Ethernet ports allow the protocols to be on different subnets. The configuration software uses IED configuration files to import complex IEC 61850 data structures. The utility enables premier integration by creating AOIs that are imported into your Logix project, using the IEC 61850 tags so users don’t have to retype them.
In substation automation applications, the module enables non-smart electrical substation devices, such as transformers and switchgear, to present their data as IEC 61850 IEDs to the SCADA system.
