SYS600C can now handle up to 300 IEDs over IEC 61850 and up to 500 IEDs over Modbus. In large systems this means less complexity and reduced system configuration efforts thanks to less devices. The overall performance and user interface responsiveness is also improved.
The communication port configuration is changed a bit. There are now 10 serial ports (RS232/485) integrated and the number of LAN ports is increased to 8 electrical (RJ45) and optionally 4 optical (LC). All ports can be utilized for IEC 61850 redundancy (PRP) both according to Edition 1 and 2.
Improved hardware supervision
The product now supervises the following:
- External power input (and also mainboard 12V input) status
- Ethernet link status
- Mainboard voltage (+12V +5V +3.3V etc.)
- CPU/SYSTEM temperature
- BIOS battery voltage level
The supervision information is available as process objects, which means that possible alarms are visible in the alarm list and the information can also be sent to upper level systems. This allows corrective actions to be taken in time and when needed.
HDMI Monitor interfaces
The product is now equipped with two HDMI ports for connecting local displays. This means that SYS600C can be used as a full workplace without adding additional computers. There is also a VGA connector available in parallel to one of the HDMI ports.
