For future-proof energy networks
Until now, switchgears were based on a manufacturer-specific device technology with proprietary interfaces and protocols. Thanks to the IEC 61850 standard, communication and the engineering process are now being standardized worldwide. This means that users are no longer dependent on a single manufacturer, and the variety of interfaces is decreasing significantly. Ethernet technology is the basis for IEC 61850 communication.
The IEC 61850 standard devised by the International Electrotechnical Commission is divided into ten basic parts. It describes the requirements for the devices and communication that are used in contactor systems and control systems for electric switchgears.
The IEC 61850 primarily defines:
The particularly robust I/O system Axioline F is the perfect solution for applications in the energy sector. With the bus coupler for IEC 61850 and I/O modules for increased nominal voltage and corresponding electric strength, you can now also use Axioline F for IEC 61850. Here, you benefit in particular from simple handling and the flexible station setup.
IEC 61850 places special requirements on network components. Depending on the area of use, extremely strict environmental requirements must be met that are specified under IEC 61850-3. Phoenix Contact offers you switches, media converters and PRP redundancy modules for a consistent network infrastructure.
