Industry's First IEC 61850 Ethernet Switch with MMS Data Modeling
03 June 2014
Moxa is proud to announce that its new PowerTrans PT-7528 series, the industry’s first Ethernet switches designed to fulfill IEC 61850-90-4 requirements and equipped with built-in MMS servers, is now available.
The PowerTrans PT-7528 series is designed for power substation automation applications in extremely harsh environments. Taking advantage of Moxa’s newest Noise Guard? technology, the PT-7528 series is not only compliant with IEC 61850 standards, but also has an EMC immunity that exceeds IEEE 1613 Class 2 standards to ensure zero packet loss while transmitting at wire speed. The PT-7528 series also features critical packet prioritization (GOOSE, SMVs, and PTP), a built-in MMS server, and a configuration wizard designed specifically for substation automation. With Gigabit Ethernet, redundant ring, and 110/220 VDC/VAC isolated redundant power supplies, the PT-7528 series further increases the reliability of your communications and saves cabling/wiring costs.
The PT-7528 series includes a wide range of models to provide multi-type port configurations. The modular design of the PT-7528 also makes network planning easy, and allows greater flexibility by letting you install up to 4 modular fiber ports and 24 fixed 10/100BaseT(X) RJ45 ports. In addition, the switches offer the fiber digital diagnostic monitoring (DDM) function for ST, SC, or SFP. Along with the optional front or rear wiring, these features together make the PT-7528 suitable for a variety of industrial applications.
“Support for IEC 61850-90-4 data modeling allows Moxa’s PT-7528 Ethernet switches to be controlled, monitored, and managed via a power SCADA system, which is critical for reliable electrical substation operation and eliminates the need for additional network management software,” stated Chih-Hong Lin, business development manager Industrial Ethernet at Moxa Europe in Unterschleißheim.
