ProSoft IEC 61850 client communication module

Monday, 08 November, 2021 | Supplied by: Rockwell Automation Australia


Designed for use in mining, metals and oil and gas operations, the ProSoft IEC 61850 module for ControlLogix systems is designed to allow ControlLogix control systems to interface with 61850 intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) to deliver critical equipment control and energy consumption information. This visibility can help management teams immediately improve production efficiency and optimise power use.

Industrial producers rely on hundreds of power protection relays or IEDs from manufacturers of motors, fans, conveyors, crushers, ovens and other equipment. The IEC 61850 communication module supports a standardised data structure across these devices.

The module also supports up to 40 IEDs on a parallel redundancy protocol (PRP)-enabled network and up to 225 I/O connections. It also features a generic object-oriented substation event (GOOSE) publisher to support GOOSE messaging. The GOOSE publisher provides a mechanism to interlock relays or load shed using the IEC 61850 communications network and helps eliminate hard wiring to the I/O modules.

Producers can also connect their enterprise with the PlantPAx system add-on profile and custom-generated add-on instruction. The system integrates into the Studio 5000 environment from Rockwell Automation to help build complex user-defined data types and Studio 5000 tags based on an IEC 61850 network configuration.
