SAM600 process bus I/O system - Enabling the digital substation
SAM600 integrates conventional instrument transformers into modern, IEC 61850-9-2 process bus substation automation, protection and control systems.
The modular design of SAM600 enables safe, efficient, and extendible retrofit of any substation. In order to maximize the benefits of IEC 61850 process bus, SAM600 modules can be placed in the switchyard close to the primary apparatus in marshalling kiosks.
Digital technology has already revolutionized communications across utility networks, and now the same techniques are being applied within the substation to enable robust, fast, and responsive messaging over Ethernet.
